Euro Drops Below $1.18

Dear Traders,

The euro weakened against the U.S. dollar in the aftermath of the German election results while the important support area around 1.1830-1.18 remained unbroken until this morning. As mentioned in our yesterday’s analysis, for the bullish bias to diminish the euro must break below 1.1830/20, the neckline of a head-shoulders pattern that was formatted since late August. Below 1.1820 we will focus on a lower target at 1.1775, from where potential pullbacks may occur. A current resistance is however seen at 1.1990.

Today’s focus shifts to comments from central bank policy makers with most attention being paid to Fed Chair Yellen who is scheduled to speak on inflation, uncertainty and monetary policy at 16:45 UTC.

Elsewhere, the war of words between the U.S. and North Korea continues to pose a threat to the markets. While the market shrugs off escalating tensions between America and North Korea, the recent escalation in rhetoric raises risk of tactical missteps.

The British pound extended its recent slide against the greenback and fell to a low near 1.3430. The latest weakness phase of the pound can still be considered as consolidation within the overall uptrend but if GBP/USD falls below 1.3380 we anticipate further losses towards 1.3330 and possibly even 1.32. On the topside, we will wait for a break above 1.36 in order to focus on higher targets at 1.37.
