Quiet Trading

Dear Traders,

U.S. inflation data came in line with expectations whereupon the dollar gave up some of its gains. However, the greenback had a rather mixed day while it ended yesterday’s trading day virtually unchanged against the euro and British pound.

Generally speaking, it seems that many market participants refrain from taking any larger positions now amidst the liquidity drain during the summer months. Therefore, we recommend to trade at a low risk or stay at the sidelines as long as risk events are lacking.

The Fed will deliver its monetary policy report to Congress today at 15:00 UTC.

We wish you a wonderful weekend.

Sluggish Market Conditions Persist Amid Geopolitical Tensions

Dear Traders,

Risk aversion and the liquidity drain ahead of the Easter holiday are hobbling the market. Tuesday’s best performer, however, was the British pound which soared to a high of 1.2494. The pound sterling benefited from a weakening U.S. dollar, which suffered some losses amid geopolitical tensions. The U.S.’s recent tougher stance created a new round of risk aversion in the market. However, the longer-term outlook for the dollar is still positive, including higher interest rates from the Fed while dollar bulls are likely to return to the market after the Easter break.

GBP/USD

The bullish movement has stalled near 1.25, a level that is considered a short-term resistance for the currency pair. The pound could possibly extend its gains to 1.2510/15 before we see a stronger correction. A break above 1.2525 however, could open the door for further bullish momentum, driving the cable towards the higher resistance zone around 1.2550/85. A current support is seen around 1.2430.

The U.K. Labor Market report is scheduled for release at 8:30 UTC and could have an impact on the price action. At the same time, Bank of England Governor Carney will speak at an event in London.

EUR/USD

The euro rose to a weekly high of 1.0630 but the currency pair’s price action is still confined to a narrow trading range. For breakout traders there was nothing to gain amid this subdued price development. The situation could persist until the French presidential election on April 23 as investors remain cautious ahead of that trend-setting event. For the time being we expect the euro’s price development to be limited to a range of 1.0650 and 1.0575.

Thin Liquidity Before The Christmas Break?

Dear Traders,

We are entering the final trading period of this year while financial markets are gradually becoming quiet.

Now that top-tier event risk is largely exhausted for the remaining trading days of 2016 we saw some corrective price action last Friday with some profit taking in the U.S. dollar. Nonetheless, there was nothing to be gained for us as currency fluctuations have been modest given the year-end liquidity drain. We recommend securing your monthly and annual profits now and trading at a low risk in the pre-holiday period.

From a technical perspective there is the possibility of further corrective movements in the dollar on the back of profit taking, driving the euro towards 1.0530 while the cable may tend to test the 1.2550-resistance level. Above 1.2570 the pound sterling may head for a test of 1.2650/80. A current support is however seen at around 1.2425.

The euro traded consolidated at around 1.0450 and if it holds above 1.0420 we may see a run for 1.0530. Below 1.04 however, we favor a bearish bias targeting at 1.03.

However we do not expect exaggerated movements within the next days and will take potential profits at smaller targets. The economic calendar is very light in terms of market moving data. The most interesting piece of data could be U.S. Durable Goods Orders alongside the final estimate of third-quarter GDP (Thursday), while the German IFO report scheduled for release today at 9:00 UTC could be worth watching for euro traders.

Furthermore, Fed Chair Janet Yellen speaks on the state of the job market today at 18:30 UTC.
