Yesterday can be described as a roller-coaster day in the markets which was not to our liking. News that officials in Beijing, China, have recommended slowing or halting purchases of U.S. bonds have sent the U.S. dollar sharply lower, at least in a short-term. However, the news was not enough to change the current sentiment and thus, the dollar ended the trading pretty much unchanged against the euro and pound.
The price development in the EUR/USD was as expected. We saw a pullback sending the euro toward 1.2020.
We now expect the EUR/USD to trade between 1.20 and 1.1860. Current chances are still in favor of the bears, provided that the euro remains below 1.20. An important support zone is seen around 1.1850 that could be tested before the euro is primed for another leg up.
From the Eurozone we have the German GDP scheduled for release at 9:00 UTC, followed by the ECB meeting minutes at 12:30 UTC.
Trading the GBP/USD has recently proved difficult. From a technical perspective we expect slightly more bearish momentum to come. The pound could fall towards 1.3470 and 1.3450 before buyers are swooping in. A current resistance is however seen at 1.3540-50.
