Risk-Off Mode In The Market

Dear Traders,

It seems that market participants are shying away from any risk right now.This risk aversion leads to unsteady and trendless markets with limited swings. Also, we have a U.S. market holiday on Wednesday which is why market participants may prefer to stay on the sidelines until Thursday. Thus, we didn’t see larger swings Monday with both EUR/USD and GBP/USD remaining confined to relatively tight trading ranges.

EUR/USD: Looking for short-term price breakouts, we are keeping tabs on a break either above 1.1680 on the upside or a break below 1.1570 on the downside.

GBP/USD: Looking for short-term price breakouts, we are keeping tabs on an upside break either above 1.32 or a downside break below 1.3090.

The only piece of economic data today will be the U.K. Construction PMI due at 8:30 UTC. From the U.S., we have Durable Goods Orders at 14:00 UTC but none of these reports is expected to trigger larger fluctuations in the market.

Euro And Pound Depreciate Against U.S. Dollar

Dear Traders,

Monday’s worst performing currency was the British pound which fell towards 1.3250 after weak U.K. manufacturing figures prompted concerns over the country’s health. The GBP/USD extended its slide this morning and tagged a low at 1.3229. On the other side, a stronger U.S. dollar contributed to the cable’s decline. After testing the crucial support area around 1.3230/1.32, we will shift our focus now to a significant break of that support-zone which could lead to further losses towards 1.3150 and 1.3050. With GBP/USD remaining below 1.34 we generally favor the bearish bias in short-term time frames.

The U.K. Construction PMI report is scheduled for release at 8:30 UTC, but this report is not expected to have a major impact on the pound.

The euro extended its slide against the greenback and fell towards 1.17. The U.S. dollar’s recovery was bolstered by a stronger ISM manufacturing sector activity index, which hit a 13-year high. As mentioned in our yesterday’s analysis we still wait for a significant break below 1.1680 in order to anticipate further losses in the EUR/USD.

There are no major economic reports scheduled for release today, so the price action could hinge on the appetite for dollars.

Challenging Trading While EUR/USD And GBP/USD Consolidate

Dear Traders,

Amidst Tuesday’s consolidation phase with both EUR/USD and GBP/USD fluctuating sideways within tight trading ranges, we have suffered some losses with our daily signal entries. Any attempt to buy euros or pounds at lower price levels has failed. We hope for better trading opportunities within the next 48 hours and will keep an eye on the technical barriers.

EUR/USD: If the pair is able to overcome its short-term hurdle at 1.1835/40, we may see a run for 1.1880. On the downside, we will wait for a significant break below 1.1790 but bearish momentum may be limited to 1.1770/60.

GBP/USD: The cable was confined to a narrow trading range between 1.3245 and 1.3195. Sterling bears should keep an eye on price drops below 1.3190 and 1.3150 whereas on the other side, a renewed upside break above 1.3225 may send the pound soaring towards 1.3265.

Interesting data points for today:

8:30 UK Construction PMI

12:15 USA ADP Employment Change

(Time zone UTC)

Dollar Strengthened Amidst Quiet Trading Environment

Dear Traders,

The U.S. dollar regained some strength and rose against the euro and British pound Monday. However, yesterday’s rebound in the dollar is still not significant enough to alter the technical outlook, thus far.

The euro fell toward 1.1350 and with U.S. markets being closed for the Independence Holiday today, we expect the EUR/USD to remain trading between 1.1440 and 1.13. If the euro dips below 1.1325 we anticipate increased bearish momentum towards 1.1290. For euro bulls to regain control, the euro will need to take the hurdle at 1.14 significantly.

The pound sterling came off its highs but found some halt near 1.2930. If the cable slides below 1.29 we expect a next support to be at around 1.2860. On the topside, the pound will need to break above 1.3030 in order to encourage sterling bulls for a test of 1.3060 and 1.31.

The U.K. Construction PMI is scheduled for release at 8:30 UTC and this is already the only piece of data today.

It is the U.S.  Independence Holiday today and trading is expected to be quiet.

All Quiet In The Market

Dear Traders,

It has been a quiet start on Monday with the euro being stuck to a 40-pips range and the cable not showing much effort to break below its recent uptrend channel. The British pound found some halt around the lower barrier of its latest upward trend-channel at 1.2465 but it was unable to hold onto that high level and fell towards 1.24 this morning. If the pound breaks also below 1.2390, we expect further losses towards 1.2330 and 1.23. As noted in yesterday’s analysis, the cable will need to break the 1.26-level significantly in order to invigorate fresh bullish momentum.

Sterling traders will watch the U.K. Construction PMI, scheduled for release at 8:30 UTC. This report could have a short-lived impact on the pound.

The euro remained stuck between 1.0680 and 1.0640. We may see some accelerated momentum today but euro traders are unlikely to get any new insights into the ECB’s thinking from ECB president Mario Draghi who is scheduled to speak at 13:30 UTC in Frankfurt. If he does not refer to monetary policy, his speech will be a nonevent for traders. From a technical perspective, we expect the EUR/USD to trade between 1.06 and 1.07 in short-term time frames.

From the U.S. we have Durable Goods Orders due for release at 14:00 UTC but this report is only of secondary importance.

Pound Near Post-Brexit Low as U.K. Sets EU-Exit Date

Dear Traders,

The British pound came under huge pressure after U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May set a March 2017 date to trigger Article 50 and begin exiting from the European Union. The pound subsequently went into a tailspin as market participants now prepare for a “hard Brexit“.

GBP/USD

The cable may face a next support around its post-Brexit low at 1.2798. Technically, we see an oversold situation in the 4- hour chart, which could increase the probability of some corrections toward the 1.29-level in the near-term. In case of a break below 1.2790 however, sterling could fall towards 1.2720.

chart_gbp_usd_4hours_snapshot4-10-16

From the U.K. we have the Construction PMI scheduled for release at 8:30 UTC, which could have a minor impact on the pound.

The euro traded slightly lower against the U.S. dollar Monday. With no major market moving data we expect the 1.1160/50- area to lend a short-term support to the EUR/USD while a current resistance is still intact at 1.1250.

Payrolls Report To Determine Direction

Dear Traders,

The U.S. dollar suffered a significant correction after the ISM Manufacturing index showed an unexpected contraction in August, raising doubts about global growth optimism. The British pound started to rise against the greenback in the wake of an unexpected strong U.K. manufacturing PMI, showing signs of expansion in the U.K. after the Brexit vote. Even though our buy order in the GBP/USD was triggered slightly later due to high slippage around the release time of the U.K. data, we were able to get a piece of the pie and secure some profit.

The euro flirted with the 1.12-level on the back of a weakening dollar and it will be interesting to see whether the euro is able to hold onto its higher price level going into the highly anticipated U.S. jobs report. Economists predict job growth will slow to 180k in August from 255k in July. While traders are waiting for the payrolls to determine the direction in the market, there is a risk that the outcome could disappoint the market’s high expectations. However, we will prepare for both bullish and bearish scenarios but advise traders to trade the payrolls report with caution.

The U.S. Jobs Report is scheduled for release at 12:30 UTC. Sterling traders should also keep an eye on the U.K. Construction PMI due at 8:30 UTC.

We wish you profitable trades and a wonderful weekend.

Currency Pairs Trade Almost Motionless

Dear Traders,

The currency market was fairly quiet or rather motionless on Monday. While the euro hovered around the 1.1170-mark, the British pound traded slightly lower against the U.S. dollar. Given the fact that the market is short the pound on speculation the Bank of England will ease monetary policy on Thursday, the risk is clearly to the downside. We will pay attention to a break of 1.3150 and 1.3060 in order to sell sterling towards lower levels. Upward movements however, could be limited to 1.3340 and 1.3440.

The only piece of second-tier economic data will be the U.K. Construction PMI scheduled for release at 8:30 UTC. From the U.S. we only have Personal Income and Spending figures scheduled for release at 12:30 UTC alongside the PCE report. These reports are not expected to have a significant impact on the currencies.

As there will be no market movers today, the consolidation phase may continue to dominate the markets. We therefore do not expect any major movements and recommend taking smaller profits if there are any.

Euro and Sterling Rose Against The Greenback

Dear Traders,

The euro and British pound traded higher against the greenback Monday. The best performing currency pair was the cable, which experienced a short squeeze and broke through all recent resistance-levels. A next resistance is seen at 1.4470/75 and if sterling is able to break above that level, we may see a test of 1.45. However, given the uncertainty surrounding the U.K. referendum, which is possible as early as June, the risk is to the downside for GBP/USD. Current support levels are seen at 1.4350, 1.4310, 1.4240 and 1.4180.

The EUR/USD flirted with the 1.09-barrier  but as long as there is no sustained break above 1.0915/25, the euro may drop back towards 1.0840 and 1.0810. On the upper side, the 1.0955/60-level remains in focus and euro-bulls should wait for prices above that level.

Meanwhile, ECB President Draghi reiterated the ECB’s plan to review its stimulus program in March and thus confirmed its dovish tilt. The euro is therefore more vulnerable to losses going into the next monetary policy meeting in March.

The German Unemployment report is scheduled for release at 8:55 GMT which could have a short-term impact on the euro if numbers surprise to the upside.

Sterling traders should keep an eye on the U.K. Construction PMI, due for release at 9:30 GMT.

Euro Trades Sideways, Cable Lacks Direction

Dear Traders,

There was only little consistency in the currencies’ performances yesterday. While the euro preferred to trade sideways, the cable has been torn between better than expected U.K. PMI data and the neutral outcome in U.S. Manufacturing. GBP/USD still remains below 1.55 and traders are wondering if the Inflation report, scheduled for release on Thursday, could help the pound for a break through its key resistance.

Let’s wait and see. Before “Super Thursday” we will keep an eye on the U.K. PMI reports. The U.K. Construction PMI is due for release at 9:30 GMT today. Furthermore U.S. Factory Orders are scheduled for release today at 15:00 GMT but this report is unlikely to have a significant impact on the USD.

ECB president Draghi will speak at the opening of the European Cultural Days today at 19:00 GMT.
