More U.S. Strength Ahead?

U.S. inflation came in higher than expected, pushing back expectations of an early Federal Reserve rate cut. A potential rate cut at the Fed’s May meeting is now being priced out. The U.S. dollar rose to a fresh three-month high following the surprise reading.

EUR/USD: A next lower target is now seen at around 1.0680-70. From there, bulls may jump back in but chances remain in favor of the bears right now. A current resistance is intact at around 1.08.

GBP/USD: The cable looks slightly tilted to the downside but must break below the EMA200 at 1.2550 for further bearish momentum. Falling below 1.2540, turns the focus to a next lower target at 1.25. As long as the pair remains below 1.27, sterling bulls might stay on the sidelines and take a wait-and-see approach.

DAX: Can Bulls Hold 16000?

The DAX recaptured the 16000-handle but faces a next hurdle at around 16100. Above 16130, chances increase for a renewed bull run towards 16300. Falling back below 15880, however, could see increased bearish momentum with a next lower target at around 15700 – the latest support area (green ellipse).

DAX Tests 15200, Pound Sterling Above 1.23

After several lossmaking fakeouts this week the DAX finally broke above 15200 and is currently testing that level on its hold as a higher support. If the price area between 15150 and 15200 holds, we may see a further leg up towards 15500. On the other side, a significant breakout below 15000 would change the sentiment in favor of the bears.

The best performer yesterday was the British pound which erased previous losses and climbed up to 1.23. Above 1.22, a next higher target is seen at 1.2450.

DAX® (GER40)

Long @ 15230

Short @ 15130

The Euro Refrains To Trade Below 1.07

Dear Traders,

There was little consistency in the performance of the EUR/USD Tuesday and the euro’s roller coaster ride gave traders no cause for joy. The euro peaked at 1.0816 before it ended the day in negative territory. We went long and short but no movement proved to be sustained. However, the 1.07-support level is still unbroken and as long as the euro remains firmly above that level, we shift our focus to an upside break above 1.0820.

There is no important economic data from the Eurozone today. From the U.S. we have the PPI Report at 13:30 UTC and Industrial Production figures at 14:15 UTC due for release but these reports are not expected to have a dramatic impact on the greenback.

The pound sterling fell towards 1.2380 after a report showed U.K. inflation unexpectedly slowed last month. Meanwhile, BoE policy makers shifted to a neutral stance with Carney saying in testimony that the neutral path is “appropriate” and officials are not considering expansion of any of the Bank of England’s programs. Sterling traders should pay attention to U.K. Employment Report at 9:30 UTC today as any surprises may lead to volatile swings in the GBP/USD. Technically we are waiting for a renewed break below 1.24 in order to sell the pound towards 1.2350. Above 1.2560 however, the bias may shift in favor of the bulls.

Market Remained Unimpressed By FOMC Statement

Dear Traders,

The market reaction to the FOMC statement was muted with the U.S. dollar ending the trading day virtually unchanged against the euro and British pound. While the Fed minutes confirmed that the central bank is moving toward tightening it also shows continuing disagreement among policy makers. Last month’s decision to hold interest rates at their current level was a close call with three FOMC members dissenting for a rate rise, the minutes showed. Market participants expect the Fed to move in December and while the market is pricing in the probability of year-end hike, the Fed may consider that move to be inevitable to preserve the central bank’s credibility.

Overall, the dollar remains bid on corrections and investors will be looking for dollar dips to buy the currency and participate on the dollar rally. Consequently, we expect further dollar gains in the medium-term but we will pay attention to potential pullbacks in the short-term.

There are no major economic reports scheduled for release today so trading could be quiet.

Here is where we see current resistance and support levels for both currency pairs:

  Resistances Supports
EUR/USD 1.1050/60

1.11

 

1.10

1.0970

 

 

  Resistances Supports
GBP/USD 1.2230

1.2320

1.2150

1.21

The Lack Of Market Moving Data Could Result In Sideways Motion

Dear Traders,

Friday’s U.S. labor market report showed that the economy is still performing well overall. While the unemployment rate rose to 5 percent from 4.9 percent as more people entered the labor force, closely-watched average hourly earnings increased 0.3 percent. The uptick in wages and a solid 215k gain in payrolls add confidence that the U.S. economy will hold up against slowing global growth. The U.S. dollar strengthened in response to the report but gains were limited in the EUR/USD, whereas the cable came under increased pressure on the back of a weaker manufacturing PMI and amid concern that economic and political uncertainty could deter investment inflows from overseas.

As expected the short-term uptrend in the British pound has been reversed and the focus returns to the next support levels at 1.4150 and 1.4050. Short-traders efforts paid off last Friday as our short-entry proved to be profitable and reached our target of 90 pips. Before shifting our focus to next support zones at 1.4140 and 1.4120, the cable must break below 1.4170. After a break below 1.41 a next important support is seen at 1.4050. On the topside we expect upward movements to be limited until 1.4320 and 1.4345.

The euro marked a current resistance around the 1.1440-level. With a renewed break above 1.1415 we might see another test of that resistance level followed by a rise towards 1.1460 and further 1.15. Remaining below 1.14, we expect the 1.1350-level to lend a short-term support to the euro. However, below 1.1335 the focus will shift to the 1.13-barrier.

This week’s economic calendar is relatively light in terms of market moving data. Apart from the FOMC minutes on Wednesday we get some speeches from Fed Presidents throughout this week as well as a speech by ECB President Mario Draghi, scheduled for Thursday. The only important piece of U.S. data will be the ISM Non-Manufacturing index, due for release on Tuesday.

Sterling traders should pay attention to Tuesday’s PMI reports as well as Manufacturing and Industrial Production figures, due for release on Friday.

Today, the U.K. Construction PMI, scheduled for release at 8:30 GMT could have an impact on the British pound.

The FOMC minutes are not expected to be a big market mover as Fed Chair Janet Yellen has just reiterated the Fed’s approach to proceed cautiously in raising interest rates. Given that cautious outlook, the dollar could thus show further signs of weakness.

We wish all traders a good start to this week and many profitable trades.

Euro Benefits As Funding Currency – Sterling Under Pressure

Dear Traders,

The euro advanced as it plays an important role as a funding currency at times of market turmoil. Before rallying above 1.12 the common currency was able to gain ground above 1.1085. For the time being, we continue to expect the 1.1070/50-level to act as a current support-zone. On the upper side, next important price levels could be at 1.1260 and 1.1280. While many traders are wondering how high the euro may go, we should bear in mind, that a strong rise in the euro, much to the displeasure of the European Central Bank, brings policymakers on to the scene in order to talk down the currency. We expect verbal intervention by the ECB should the euro rise further.

The cable, however, declined towards its next important support-level at 1.4350. As long as Brexit concerns remain on the table, the currency is likely to remain under pressure. We expect increased bearish momentum as soon as sterling breaks below 1.4330/25. Lower targets could be at 1.4240 and 1.4180. A short-term resistance-zone is seen at 1.4450/65. Above 1.4475, sterling may climbs towards 1.4540.

Today we have second-tier data scheduled for release, which is expected to have only a minor impact on the currencies.
