Market Returned To Risk-Off Mode

Dear Traders,

Risk appetite among market participants has subsided following the risk-on rally in the wake of French elections. While we had hoped for some further momentum in the markets, traders were disappointed by the poor market situation and consequently none of our daily signal entries was triggered. We may see some increase in volatility as soon as tomorrow as investors are turning their attention to U.S. President Trump who will unveil his tax plan on Wednesday. According to a White House official, he will call for cutting taxes for individuals and lowering the corporate rate to 15 percent. Trump’s announcement could strengthen the U.S. dollar.

The euro traded sideways within a tight trading range between 1.0880 and 1.0835. We are now looking for small breakouts either above 1.0880 or below 1.0845. However, with market participants pulling back on EUR/USD positioning we have no other choice than waiting for the market sentiment to improve.

The British pound refrained from showing any larger price fluctuations and remained steady above 1.2770, at least for the time being. A current support level is seen at 1.2745 whereas a short-term resistance remains intact at 1.2830/40.

U.S. Consumer Confidence is scheduled for release at 14:00 UTC and is the only noteworthy report today.
