Quiet Trading On May 1st?

Dear Traders,

We welcome you to the trading month of May. May 1st is a public holiday in many countries with many major markets shut for holidays. Trading in the Forex market could therefore be quieter than usual but that doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be no profitable movements. Let us be surprised.

Yesterday we saw the U.S. dollar continuing its rally against the euro and British pound with the GBP/USD touching a fresh low at 1.3712, slightly above the crucial 1.37-boundary. Following the recent declines and with both EUR/USD and GBP/USD hovering around key technical levels now, traders should expect some short covering around crucial support levels. In other words, prepare for consolidated movements around 1.20 in the EUR/USD and 1.37 in the GBP/USD.

EUR/USD: The euro was able to hold above 1.2050 and it will now hinge on the appetite for USD whether the euro falls towards 1.1990 or stabilizes above 1.2150.

GBP/USD: The cable rejected the 1.3710-level and consolidated between 1.38 and 1.37. Whether we will see some extended market moves above or below that zone remains to be seen. Above 1.38, we expect a next resistance to come in at around 1.3840 whereas on the bottom side, a next lower target could be at 1.3650.

Sterling traders will watch the U.K. PMI Manufacturing at 8:30 UTC today.

Furthermore, we have the ISM Manufacturing Index due for release at 14:00 UTC.
