Euro Jumps On Migration Deal At EU Summit

Dear Traders,

There was nothing to gain for day traders on Thursday with the price action in both major currency pairs EUR/USD and GBP/USD remaining limited to a tight trading range. Rather, we suffered losses while trying to benefit from the choppy swings yesterday. The moderate market development can be attributed to lacking fundamental headlines, while the first day of the EU Leaders summit ended without a deal on migration issues. However, those that had a look at the market in today’s early trading hours may have wondered what happened to the euro which showed an impressive rise towards a high at 1.1666. News that EU leaders have reached a deal on migration at the summit spurred the euro’s bullish price action in early Asian trading. The euro jumped at the prospect of the deal defusing a dispute over how to share the burden of immigration within the EU.

EUR/USD: As stated in yesterday’s analysis, as long as the 1.15-support holds we expect the euro to test the 1.17-resistance and possibly even the 1.18-handle.

GBP/USD: The pound rose in tandem with the euro this morning but was unable to overcome the short-term resistance at 1.3130, at least until now. A break above 1.3130 could result in an upswing towards 1.3150/70 whereas a renewed break below 1.3060 could lead to a test of 1.30.

Today we will watch the U.K. GDP Report, due at 8:30 UTC, followed by the Eurozone Consumer Price Index (9:00 UTC) and the U.S. PCE Index (12:30 UTC).

Have a wonderful weekend.

GBP Tests Support, What’s Next?

Dear Traders,

It came as it had to come in the GBP/USD: The British pound retreated from its highs and corrected some of its recent gains. Before yesterday’s pullback happened, we saw the pound touching a fresh post-Brexit high at 1.4377 but the U.K. employment report put an end to the cable’s rally. As we warned traders yesterday, the pullback was inevitable given the overbought situation in the GBP/USD. The job report was, however, generally positive and likely to keep the Bank of England on track to raise interest rates next month.

Today we have the U.K. Consumer Price Report scheduled for release at 8:30 UTC. If inflation numbers come in weaker than expected, the pound could drop towards 1.4230/20. A significant break below 1.4220 could even open the door for a larger decline towards 1.4150. If the pound sterling is, however, able to gain ground above 1.43, buyers may take the opportunity to buy pounds at lower levels with a higher target at 1.4420.

The euro’s climb above 1.24 had been brief while the pair EUR/USD was unable to hold above that important threshold – at least for the time being. With the 1.24-barrier being a hart nut to crack, we now focus on the 1.2350-support which is equivalent to a rising trendline of the recent uptrend channel. Euro bulls should pay attention to a break above 1.2425 which could justify accelerated bullish momentum towards higher targets.

The Eurozone Consumer Price report is scheduled for release at 9:00 UTC but as long as there is no surprise in the headline figure, the report’s impact on the price action could be limited.

GBP/USD: Upswing Toward 1.43 or Drop Below 1.40?

Dear Traders,

The U.S. dollar has proven to be stable on Tuesday amid trade tensions between the U.S. and China. Furthermore, the greenback was supported by speculation for an extended Federal Reserve hiking-cycle following hawkish commentary from Fed Governor Lael Brainard. Elsewhere, San Francisco President John Williams will be the successor to NY President William Dudley. Williams is more hawkish than Dudley.

The U.S. dollar strengthened against the euro but ended the trading day unchanged against the British pound.

As expected in our technical analysis from yesterday, the euro found a current support at 1.2250 from where it corrected some losses. If the euro now drops below 1.2240 we expect further losses towards 1.22. For bullish momentum to gain steam we would need to see a break above 1.2360.

Euro traders will watch the Eurozone Consumer Price Index today at 9:00 UTC, a report which could have an impact on the single currency.

The pound sterling rose towards 1.41 after it refrained from a decline below the rising trendline (see our analysis from Tuesday, April 3). If there is a renewed break below 1.4030 the pound could be vulnerable to further losses towards 1.40 and 1.39. However, as long as the pound remains above 1.40 we favor a bullish stance in the GBP/USD.

From the U.S., we have the ADP report scheduled for release at 12:15 UTC followed by the ISM Non-Manufacturing Index at 14:00 UTC.

Currency Pairs Remain Range-Bound Ahead Of Next Week’s Central Bank Meetings

Dear Traders,

The euro and pound were unable to hold onto their recent gains and weakened against the U.S. dollar Thursday despite political turmoil in the Trump administration. The euro tested the 1.23-threshold but was able to stabilize above that barrier – at least for the time being. Short traders were able to pocket a good profit yesterday as we entered short as soon as the euro dropped below 1.2350.

The pound sterling still rejects 1.40 and thus, remains range-bound between 1.40 and 1.39. As long as there is no sustained break above or below that range, there is nothing new to report.

This Friday we do not have great expectations as the focus turns to the central bank meetings next week so market movements could be flat ahead of the upcoming risk events.

Traders may keep an eye on the Eurozone Consumer Price Index at 10:00 UTC and the University of Michigan Sentiment at 14:00 UTC. However, none of these reports is expected to have a significant impact on the currencies.

We wish you a beautiful weekend!

U.S. Dollar Continues Slide After Trump State Of The Union Speech

Dear Traders,

Turn-around Tuesday lived up to its name and we got what we were looking for: A reversal of the dollar’s short-lived recovery and a very good daily and monthly profit. The U.S. dollar is being sucked into the maelstrom triggered by the ‘America First’ agenda of the Trump administration. As for the depreciation of the greenback and the long-term outlook, we can point out that the protectionism move will negatively influence the world’s largest economy.

The dollar extended its slide after U.S. President Trump’s State of the Union speech. As expected, Trump sought to strike a positive tone and described a “New American Moment” of wealth and opportunity. Trump called on Congress to pass a 1.5 trillion infrastructure-spending plan but this campaign promise was widely expected by the markets. Thus, the dollar’s reaction to his speech was muted.

EUR/USD

The euro recovered some of its losses after the 1.2330-support proved intact. Now that the single currency has stabilized above 1.24 we could see another test of 1.2450, a short-term resistance in the EUR/USD. If the euro finds its way above 1.2460 we expect further gains towards 1.25 and possibly even 1.2650.

The British pound started a relief rally after the psychological support at 1.40 has been tested. If the pound climbs above 1.4210 we may see a rise towards 1.43 but this depends on the risk appetite and demand for dollars ahead of the FOMC decision.

The next upcoming risk event will be the FOMC rate decision at 19:00 UTC but no changes are expected. It will be Janet Yellen’s last FOMC meeting before her term ends in February.

Before coming to the FOMC decision, we will keep an eye on the Eurozone Consumer Price report, due at 10:00 UTC, followed by the ADP report at 13:15 UTC.

EUR And GBP: Bearish Reversal Ahead?

Dear Traders,

We saw some profit taking Tuesday with both euro and pound giving up some of their recent gains versus the U.S. dollar. We were thus able to pocket some profit with our short entries. The modest rebound happened before both currency pairs were poised for another bullish run towards higher highs. In thin Asia trading the euro took a short glimpse above 1.23 but was unable to hold above that level. The pound sterling climbed to a high of 1.3836 before it dropped back below the 1.38-barrier.

Whether we will see further gains in the EUR/USD and GBP/USD depends on the market’s risk appetite for euros and pounds. The euro recently received a boost from speculation, the ECB could end its bond-buying program earlier than the market currently expects but we bear in mind that it is a sensitive time for the ECB. A strengthening euro could damp prices, giving ECB policy makers an excuse to keep monetary policy steady, at least until after the end of QE, which is set to expire in September.

Apart from fundamental drivers, we keep tabs on technical barriers. On a daily basis, both pairs are still overbought, increasing the chances of steeper corrections. For the time being we expect the EUR/USD to trade between 1.2350 and 1.21.

Traders should keep an eye on the Eurozone Consumer Price Report today at 10:00 UTC.

The British pound remained below 1.3850 and as long as that barrier holds, we see chances in favor of a bearish reversal, provided that the cable drops below 1.3730. Lower targets could be around 1.3690 and 1.3610.

Pound Is Flying High, Next Targets To Watch Out For

Dear Traders,

The British pound extended its gains and jumped higher towards the next hurdle around 1.35-1.3515. Traders who traded the bullish movement yesterday had, however, to struggle with limited upside swings and short-term corrections before the pound was ready for another leg higher. Reportedly, Dublin and London are close to an agreement on the Irish border which will allow Brexit talks to move forward. The Irish border is a main obstacle in separation talks. The latest progress in the divorce talks has thus pushed the pound to fresh highs.

Given the strong rally we anticipate further gains in the GBP/USD. Next higher targets could be at 1.3515 followed by 1.3570. On the bottom side, it would require a renewed break below 1.3250 to reinvigorate bearish momentum.

The EUR/USD found some support near 1.1820 from where a reversal started. As noted in yesterday’s analysis, as long as the euro remains well above 1.18, we favor a bullish bias anticipating higher targets at 1.19 and 1.20. If the euro falls however below 1.1830 and further 1.18, we could see bears taking over.

Euro traders should keep an eye on the Eurozone Consumer Price Index, scheduled for release at 10:00, which could lead to some upside swings in the EUR/USD. From the U.S. we have the PCE deflator scheduled for release at 13:30 UTC which is the Fed’s favored inflation measure.

The Dollar’s Fate Is In The Hands Of The U.S. Tax Reform Bill

Dear Traders,

U.S. inflation data, at the end of the day, did not have a major impact on the U.S. dollar with the greenback ending the trading day virtually unchanged against the euro and British pound. The EUR/USD soared to a high of 1.1860 before it fell back below 1.18. Our assumption of a slight extension of gains in the EUR/USD has proved correct but the sharp intraday reversal could cause euro bulls to run out of breath now. While the 1.1910-Level remains a crucial resistance on the topside, the euro could now struggle to overcome the 1.1805-hurdle. If the single currency is able to stabilize above 1.18 we may see a run for 1.19 but with bullish momentum running out of steam the euro may head for 1.1730.

Euro traders should keep an eye on the Eurozone Consumer Price report due at 10:00 UTC, which could have a minor impact on the euro’s price action.

The current price action in the GBP/USD frays the nerves of day traders. The pair trades without any discernable direction and for traders looking to assign a directional approach, we recommend waiting for price breakouts either above 1.3270 and 1.3350 or below 1.31 and 1.3020.

Sterling traders should pay attention to a round of Bank of England speakers including BoE Governor Carney who is scheduled to speak at 14:00 UTC.

Apart from market-moving topics like Brexit and monetary policy, the fate of the U.S. dollar is in the hands of the U.S. tax reform. Today, the House will vote on its tax-overhaul bill, aiming to take the most concrete step toward overhauling the American tax system. House Republicans aim to get the tax reform done by year-end and that is exactly what dollar bulls want to see. How the dollar will trade in the near-term could therefore hinge on the outcome of today’s vote.

Profitable Trading Month June

Dear Traders,

The euro and British pound extended their rallies and further strengthened against the struggling U.S. dollar. With the European Central Bank and the Bank of England gradually shifting the tone toward a more hawkish stance, the euro and pound benefited against the greenback.

The EUR/USD approaches 1.15 and if U.S. key inflation data due at 12:30 UTC misses, we could see at least a test of the crucial 1.15-level. The PCE deflator is considered the Federal Reserve’s favorite inflation gauge and analysts expect the annual rate slowed to 1.4 percent.

The EUR/USD trades currently at 1.1445 and if the pair passes 1.1470, we could see the euro heading for a test of 1.15 and possibly even 1.1550. Sellers of the EUR/USD should either enter at higher resistance levels, taking advantage of potential pullbacks or wait for a decline below 1.1370.

Euro traders should keep an eye on the Eurozone Consumer Prices scheduled for release at 9:00 UTC.

The GBP/USD was able to hold above 1.30, at least for the time being. If the price breaks above 1.3060 we expect the cable to head for 1.3120. A crucial resistance is however seen at 1.3240/50. As long as the pair remains above 1.29, there is no cause for concern for sterling bulls.

The U.K. GDP is scheduled for release at 8:30 UTC.

Having gained a very good profit this month by our daily signals we will sit back today and secure our monthly profits. Have a good weekend.

GBP/USD: How High Can The Pound Go?

Dear Traders,

Markets have had a surprisingly volatile start after the Easter holidays as the shock news of a U.K. election has caused the British pound to skyrocket against the U.S. dollar. The euro traded in sympathy with the pound and was able to climb above the 1.07-barrier.

The biggest story on Tuesday was however sterling’s roller coaster ride amid U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s announcement in Downing Street. When May initially said she would make an announcement outside Downing Street, she offered no further explanation. Consequently, the pound dropped towards 1.2515 as a result of uncertainty. When it was clear that May announced an early election, the pound jumped to fresh highs, breaking through significant technical barriers. The announcement came as a surprise in the market and as a trader we know that surprise moves can be very profitable. And thus, every of our swing and daily signal trades have easily reached the final profit target.

The snap election that will be held on June 8 was called in order to increase May’s majority in the House of Commons before the difficult two-year negotiating period with the European Union.

GBP/USD

How high can sterling go? This is precisely the question that interest traders. In the near-term, we expect a continuation of the recent upward move, targeting at the next resistance zone around 1.29 – 1.2920. If sterling breaks through 1.2950 it may head for a test of 1.3050 – the upper resistance level. We expect a stronger resistance around 1.3050 and 1.31 that could limit further gains in the pound. On the downside, we see current support levels at 1.27 and 1.26, barriers at which bulls could take the opportunity to buy sterling at lower levels.

The euro broke through 1.07 and was able to hold above that important price level. We do not expect larger market moves ahead of the French elections as uncertainty prevails, but anything is possible. A next resistance is seen around 1.0750 and the single currency would need to break significantly above that level in order to extend potential gains towards 1.08. A crucial support-zone remains intact at around 1.0640/30.

Eurozone Consumer Prices are scheduled for release at 9:00 UTC but this report could be of minor importance.
