FOREX NEWS: US DOLLAR STRENGTH PUTS THE BEARS BACK IN CONTROL. RETRACEMENTS EXPECTED

EUR/USD


Forex News: The US Dollar gained against the Euro and most of its other counterparts as inflation in the United States increased unexpectedly. The pair had a bearish day yesterday and support was touched.

[Image: 2014.10.23-US-Dollar-strength-puts-the-b...d-pic1.png]

Technical Outlook

The support at 1.2660 was touched yesterday and price moved below the 50 period Exponential Moving Average, things which show that we are trading in a bearish market. A break of the current support zone would make 1.2500 the next target but before that can happen, price will most likely stall around 1.2660. The Relative Strength Index is approaching the 30 level which indicates an oversold market and this increases the chances of bullish moves.

Fundamental Outlook

At 7:00 am GMT France will release the Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index, a survey which shows the level of optimism among purchasing managers regarding the current and future economic conditions in the manufacturing sector. The expected number is 48.6 and higher values will most likely strengthen the Euro. Half an hour later, at 7:30 am GMT, Germany will release the indicator with the same name; the forecast is 49.6 and the Euro will be positively affected by a higher number.


GBP/USD

The pair traveled south yesterday as the votes on the latest interest rate decision showed that Bank of England officials see risk for the growth of the UK economy. This dampened the appeal of the Pound and triggered and extended bearish move.

[Image: 2014.10.23-US-Dollar-strength-puts-the-b...d-pic2.png]

Technical Outlook

Although the support level at 1.6060 was pierced, we didn’t see a clear break. Price is trading below the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and this will be the first form of resistance if the pair will bounce higher. Today’s direction will be heavily influenced by the fundamental aspect, making the technical part somewhat secondary.

Fundamental Outlook

The British Retail Sales are released at 8:30 am GMT with an expected decrease from last month’s 0.4% to -0.1%. Since the retail sector is of crucial importance for overall economic activity, a decrease would negatively affect the Pound and would take the pair lower. Usually the Retail Sales release creates strong moves so we recommend caution if trading at the time.

FOREX NEWS: UNITED KINGDOM’S GDP AND AMERICAN HOUSING DATA, THE FINAL HEADLINES OF THE WEEK

EUR/USD


Forex News: Euro strength was seen yesterday once a German Manufacturing survey posted better than expected numbers. However, the pair failed to break resistance and price returned lower later in the day.

[Image: 2014.10.24-United-Kingdoms-GDP-and-Ameri...k-pic1.png]

Technical Outlook

Yesterday’s trading session was not characterized by one sided price action and the pair reversed soon after crossing 1.2660 to the upside. There is still a lot of bearish pressure as shown by yesterday’s failed attempt to break 1.2660 resistance but we expect mostly ranging movement today. The first lower level of importance is located at 1.2610, while a move above 1.2660 and the 50 period Exponential Moving Average would put the bulls in control.

Fundamental Outlook

The US Dollar will be affected today by the New Home Sales release scheduled at 2:00 pm GMT. Usually people buy a new house in times of economic expansion and this triggers additional expenses (furniture, electronic appliances, etc.), thus higher numbers for today’s release will have a positive impact on the greenback. The forecast is 473K while last month’s number was 504K.


GBP/USD

British Retail Sales disappointed yesterday, triggering a bearish move below support. However, the sellers couldn’t maintain their control over the pair and price moved north later in the day.

[Image: 2014.10.24-United-Kingdoms-GDP-and-Ameri...k-pic2.png]

Technical Outlook

The choppy price action seen yesterday paints an unclear picture with long wicked candles which suggest indecision. Resistance sits at 1.6060 while first major support is located at 1.5900 and the day’s direction will be dictated by the value of the British Gross Domestic Product which is the main gauge of an economy’s overall performance.

Fundamental Outlook

The release of United Kingdom’s GDP is scheduled at 8:30 am GMT and the expected value is 0.7%, a decrease from the previous 0.9%. This would be another blow to British economic recovery and would weaken the Pound, driving the pair lower. As always, the US events will have a direct impact on the pair’s direction.
We hope you had a profitable trading week and we wish you a relaxing weekend.

FOREX NEWS: EUROPEAN BANKS STRESS TESTS RESULTS GENERATE CHOPPY PRICE ACTION

EUR/USD


Forex News: Friday’s price behavior was influenced by rumors regarding the European Banks stress tests and the bulls reversed an initial move below support. Although price action was choppy, the day and week ended above support.

[Image: image0014-1024x479.png]

Technical Outlook

The pair’s movement will be heavily affected by the European Banks stress tests released Sunday and some irregular volatility might be experienced throughout the day. The important levels are 1.2660 to the downside and 1.2695 (Friday’s high) to the upside. A break of either one would expose the resistance at 1.2750 or the support zone between 1.2620 and 1.2600 and could trigger an extended move in that direction.

Fundamental Outlook

The German IFO Business Climate survey is released today at 9:00 am GMT. The importance of this survey comes from its large sample of about 7,000 businesses but also from the fact that it acts as a leading indicator of optimism and economic health. The anticipated value is 104.6 and higher numbers usually have a positive impact on the Euro.

The US Pending Home Sales will be released at 2:00 pm GMT and expected to increase 1.1% from last month’s -1.0%, a fact which would strengthen the greenback.


GBP/USD

United Kingdom’s Preliminary Gross Domestic Product posted the anticipated value Friday but this was interpreted as bullish by most market participants and the Pound strengthened, finishing the week above 1.6060.

[Image: image0034-1024x479.png]

Technical Outlook

Although the pair climbed above resistance, the move doesn’t seem to be backed by strong fundamentals and could be easily reversed. If price moves below the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and below 1.6060, the first target will be represented by the minor support at 1.6000. If 1.6060 will be successfully tested from above and turns into support, price will head towards the next resistance which is located at 1.6180 but we don’t expect it to travel the entire distance unless surprising events take place.

Fundamental Outlook

The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) will announce today at 11:00 am GMT the Realized Sales. This index is a leading indicator of consumer spending because the sales made by wholesalers and retailers are directly influenced by consumers. Today’s anticipated value is 35 and numbers above it usually strengthen the Pound, suggesting increased economic activity.

FOREX NEWS: RESISTANCE AHEAD. US DATA DETERMINES THE DAY’S BIAS

EUR/USD


Forex News: Yesterday the pair’s behavior was mainly influenced by the fundamental aspect as we saw a weak Euro once a worse than anticipated value of the German IFO survey was posted, followed by US Dollar weakness when the Pending Home Sales failed to meet analysts’ expectations.

[Image: 2014.10.28-Resistance-ahead.-US-data-det...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

The latest momentum belongs to the Euro bulls on the back of a weak Dollar but on an hourly chart we can note the Relative Strength Index is approaching overbought territory and this may trigger some bearish price action. The 50 period Exponential Moving Average is now sitting below price and will offer support if touched from above; the first upper target is located at 1.2750 while support is represented by 1.2620 if the Moving Average is broken.

Fundamental Outlook

At 12:30 pm GMT the American Durable Goods Orders are announced, showing the change in orders for goods with a life expectancy of at least 3 years. Analysts expect a change of 0.4%, a huge difference from last month’s -18.4% and we believe that any value close to this expectation would strengthen the US Dollar.

Later in the day, at 2:00 pm GMT a US Consumer Confidence survey is released and expected to change from 86.0 to 87.4. A higher number would also benefit the US Dollar because confidence among consumers is often an indication of increased retail sales in the near future.


GBP/USD

The Pound continued to climb higher on the back of a better than anticipated value of the CBI Realized Sales and is now trading above a four-hour 50 period Exponential Moving Average. Overall yesterday the pair moved in one direction, without sharp reversals.

[Image: 2014.10.28-Resistance-ahead.-US-data-det...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

The peak at 1.6180 is considered the pair’s first target and also the first place where the bulls may encounter some resistance. If price will indeed reach this level and the Relative Strength Index will enter overbought territory, the chances of a bounce lower will be increased. To the downside the first support is offered by the 50 period Exponential Moving Average, followed by the level at 1.6060.

Fundamental Outlook

The United Kingdom didn’t schedule major news releases for today so price action will be affected by the technical aspect and by the US indicators mentioned earlier.

FOREX NEWS: US MONETARY POLICY IN THE SPOTLIGHT. VOLATILITY INCREASES

EUR/USD


Forex News: The Durable Goods Orders disappointed yesterday, posting a reading of -1.3% which weakened the US Dollar and allowed the pair to move straight up into major resistance. Later in the day, an optimistic value of the US Consumer Confidence survey erased some of the greenback’s losses.

[Image: 2014.10.29-US-Monetary-Policy-in-the-spo...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

On the hourly chart above, we can note the pair is having some difficulty breaking 1.2750 resistance and on top of that, the Relative Strength Index has reached overbought. Although the overbought condition is not an extreme one, we expect the pair to bounce lower, possibly for a touch of the 50 period Exponential Moving Average. If 1.2750 is broken, the next resistance is located at 1.2835.

Fundamental Outlook

The day’s main event is represented by the US interest rate announcement, together with the FOMC Rate Statement, both scheduled at 6:00 pm GMT. The rate is not expected to change from the current <0.25% but the biggest market mover will probably be the FOMC statement which will offer hints about future monetary policy and the reasons which stood behind the rate decision. A positive outlook contained by this Statement will most likely strengthen the US Dollar.


GBP/USD

Similar to the Euro, the Pound gained against the greenback and resistance was touched but a break didn’t occur. Overall we had a bullish day, with price controlled by the buyers.

[Image: 2014.10.29-US-Monetary-Policy-in-the-spo...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

Once price reached 1.6180 resistance, bullish momentum dampened and the action slowed down. Before this level can be broken, we expect small pullbacks lower and if a break will occur, the level needs to be tested from above for the pair to be considered a true one. To the downside, the first dynamic support is represented by the Exponential Moving Average while horizontal support sits at 1.6060.

Fundamental Outlook

At 9:30 am GMT the British Net Lending to Individuals value is announced; the indicator shows the sum of new credit issued to clients and higher numbers are considered bullish because they indicate a thriving economy where people are confident and willing to spend money. On the other hand, it also indicates that banks are comfortable issuing those loans. The expected value is 2.8B, a decrease from the previous 3.2B and higher than anticipated readings will most likely strengthen the Pound. Of course, the US events will have a direct impact on the pair’s movement.

FOREX NEWS: MIXED PRICE ACTION AHEAD OF EUROPEAN INFLATION DATA

EUR/USD


Forex News: German inflation dropped yesterday more than analysts anticipated and the US Gross Domestic Product increased 3.5% while the anticipated value was 3.1%. Al this generated another bearish push for the pair during the first part of the day but a pullback occurred in the second part.

[Image: 2014.10.31-Mixed-price-action-ahead-of-E...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

The bullish move seen yesterday doesn’t seem to have a clear reason and we expect the sellers to continue their assault on support today. The pair is currently testing the level at 1.2620 from below and we favor a bounce lower which will take price in close vicinity of 1.2500 key support. The Relative Strength Index is close to oversold (probably this had something to do with yesterday’s rise) but we don’t consider the position of the RSI something that could fully reverse price direction. However, if 1.2620 is broken to the upside, the next target will be represented by the 50 period Exponential Moving Average.

Fundamental Outlook

The day’s main event is the release of the European Preliminary Consumer Price Index scheduled at 10:00 am GMT. European inflation is a major concern for the ECB as their desired target is just below 2.0% and the current value of 0.3% is considered too low. For today’s release, analysts expect a rise of 0.4% and probably if this value will not be reached, the Euro will weaken, allowing the pair to descend.


GBP/USD

Although the pair moved lower when the better than expected value of the American GDP was posted, it soon began to climb, breaking 1.6000 to the upside and overall yesterday price was controlled by the bulls.

[Image: 2014.10.31-Mixed-price-action-ahead-of-E...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

Today we expect the bearish pressure to take the pair lower, probably below 1.6000 as the latest move north is considered just a correction. If price continues to move to the upside, the 50 period Exponential Moving Average combined with the level at 1.6060 will provide resistance and the chances of bearish movement will substantially increase if that confluence zone will be reached.

Fundamental Outlook

From a fundamental point of view the entire week has been slow for the United Kingdom and the same is valid for today as no major economic or financial indicators are released. Price direction will be mainly affected by the technical aspect.
We hope you had a profitable trading week and we wish you a relaxing weekend.

FOREX NEWS: SUPPORT THREATENED AHEAD OF MANUFACTURING PMI RELEASES

EUR/USD


Forex News: Friday’s session was controlled by the bears and the pair remained below its resistance. This was mostly triggered by the fact that Euro Zone inflation didn’t show any clear sign of improvement, coupled with optimistic US economic data.

[Image: 2014.11.03-Support-threatened-ahead-of-M...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

Once the pair touched 1.2500 support, it immediately bounced higher, showing signs of rejection; also, the Relative Strength Index is close to the 30 level which suggests a possible oversold condition. These factors make us believe that today we will see a retracement higher before the pair will make another attempt to break 1.2500 support, heading towards 1.2440.

Fundamental Outlook

At 3:00 pm GMT the US Manufacturing PMI is announced and expected to remain almost unchanged at 56.5 compared with last month’s 56.6. This is a survey of about 400 purchasing managers from the Manufacturing sector and acts as a leading indicator of optimism and economic health, thus higher numbers can strengthen the US Dollar, driving the pair lower.


GBP/USD

The pair showed choppy price action Friday as it failed to move away from the level at 1.6000. All moves were quickly reversed and neither side was in clear control.

[Image: 2014.11.03-Support-threatened-ahead-of-M...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

Friday’s choppy action makes the picture unclear for today and the pair is range-bound below 1.6000. Once price moves away from this level, we can expect a touch of either 1.6060 resistance or 1.5900 support but the direction will be decided by the economic data scheduled for release.

Fundamental Outlook

The British Manufacturing PMI is released at 9:30 am GMT. As mentioned before, the PMI is a survey derived from the opinions of purchasing managers from the Manufacturing sector and indicates the levels of optimism. A value above the anticipated 51.5 has the potential to strengthen the Pound, taking the pair higher and the opposite is true for a value below expectations.

FOREX NEWS: BEARS MAINTAIN CONTROL AS LONG AS RESISTANCE REMAINS INTACT

EUR/USD


Forex News: The week opened with a downside gap and on top of that, US Dollar strength generated by a better than expected American Manufacturing PMI took the pair into the support at 1.2440. However, price remained close to 1.2500 for most of the day.

[Image: 2014.11.04-Bears-maintain-control-as-lon...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

The Relative Strength Index on a four hour chart is hovering near the 30 level which indicates oversold and the pair bounced higher after touching the support at 1.2440. Although these are bullish signs, the pair is in a downtrend and the strength still belongs to the bears so further advances to the south are not out of the question but 1.2440 remains the first barrier. To the upside, the 50 period Exponential Moving Average can provide resistance, as well as the current level at 1.2500.

Fundamental Outlook

The most important event of the day is the US Trade Balance scheduled for release at 1:30 pm GMT. This indicator measures the difference between imported and exported goods and a negative number suggests that imports exceeded exports; a higher number than the anticipated -40.0B can have a positive impact on the greenback as it shows increased demand for American goods and services.


GBP/USD

The British Manufacturing PMI posted a value which exceeded analysts’ expectations but this strengthened the Pound only for a brief moment and the bulls failed to capitalize on the news.

[Image: 2014.11.04-Bears-maintain-control-as-lon...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

The strength generated by the positive British news found resistance at 1.6000 and the pair started to move lower for the remainder of the day but overall neither bulls nor bears managed to gain a clear advantage. However, the pair remains below resistance, without being oversold so we consider the bias remains bearish as long as 1.6000 is not breached. The first support is located at 1.5900.

Fundamental Outlook

The British Construction PMI is announced today at 9:30 am GMT and is expected to decrease slightly from last month’s 64.2 to 63.5. The indicator is a survey of purchasing managers from the construction sector and tries to gauge their optimism regarding economic and business conditions, thus a higher value can strengthen the Pound, taking the pair higher.

FOREX NEWS: FIRST US EMPLOYMENT DATA OF THE WEEK COULD SHAKE THE MARKET

EUR/USD


Forex News: The bulls managed to break resistance yesterday as the Euro gained against a US Dollar weakened by a disappointing Trade Balance. Later in the evening rumors about turmoil within the ECB generated increased volatility and some strong movement.

[Image: 2014.11.05-First-US-employment-data-of-t...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

The pair moved above the resistance at 1.2500 which has now turned into support and the short term bias is bullish. The Relative Strength Index is angled upwards, after being previously oversold and this indicates that further advances can be made, aiming towards 1.2620 resistance. The 50 period Exponential Moving Average is the first barrier in front of rising prices and a place where bullish movement can be reversed.

Fundamental Outlook

Today’s main event is the release of the ADP Non Farm Employment Change scheduled at 1:15 pm GMT. This report is put together by a privately owned company and tries to mimic the government employment data (NFP) which comes out Friday. A higher number than the expected 214K would strengthen the greenback because increased job creation suggests a thriving economy and acts as a leading indicator of consumer spending.


GBP/USD

Yesterday the pair had very slow and choppy price action, with its biggest move happening at the time of the British Construction data release. The worse than anticipated value weakened the Pound but this weakness didn’t last long and the pair continued slowly upwards.

[Image: 2014.11.05-First-US-employment-data-of-t...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

Yesterday’s price action was inconclusive and does not offer a lot of hints regarding today’s probable direction. However, the Relative Strength Index is angled upwards, so we may see a touch of 1.6060 resistance if the bulls manage to keep price above 1.6000. The 50 period Exponential Moving Average is the first barrier and we may see a bounce lower once price touches it; if this happens, we believe 1.6000 will be broken to the downside.

Fundamental Outlook

The final British Purchasing Managers’ Index of the week is released today at 9:30 am GMT: the Services PMI. This survey acts as a leading indicator of economic health and higher numbers suggest optimism among purchasing managers from the services sector, thus the Pound tends to strengthen. The forecast is 58.5 while last month’s value was slightly higher at 58.7.

FOREX NEWS: ECB’S RATE DECISION AND PRESS CONFERENCE SET THE STAGE FOR SHARP MOVES

EUR/USD


Forex News: The US Dollar strengthened yesterday even before the ADP employment data was released and a better than anticipated value for this indicator added fuel to the downwards momentum. The day was controlled by the bears and today we expect further advances.

[Image: 2014.11.06-ECBs-rate-decision-and-Press-...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

The level at 1.2500 was broken to the downside and price didn’t even pause before moving past it, showing that the latest move has momentum and that 1.2440 is the pair’s next target. If this support is breached, the next one is located at 1.2280 but probably more than one day will pass before the pair reaches it. Today’s price direction will be mostly influenced by the ECB Press Conference so the technical side will be secondary.

Fundamental Outlook

At 12:45 pm GMT the ECB will announce their interest rate decision, with no change expected from the current 0.05% but the more important event is the ECB Press Conference scheduled at 1:30 pm GMT. ECB President Mario Draghi will read a prepared statement and then will answer journalists’ questions; this second part of the press conference is usually the one that triggers strong and often irregular movement. Caution is recommended if trading during the Press Conference.


GBP/USD

The Pound suffered losses during the first part of yesterday after a worse than expected value of the Services PMI was posted, but most of these loses were erased in the second part of the day, even if the US Dollar strengthened against other currencies.

[Image: 2014.11.06-ECBs-rate-decision-and-Press-...24x479.png]

Technical Outlook

Yesterday price bounced between the resistance at 1.6000 and the support at 1.5900, traveling the entire distance down then climbing back up close to resistance. Whichever level is breached first today will probably determine an extended move in that direction but we consider resistance harder to break because the 50 period Exponential Moving Average is in close vicinity.

Fundamental Outlook

The British Manufacturing Production numbers come out at 9:30 am GMT, showing the change in the total value of goods produced by the manufacturing sector. Last month’s value was 0.1% and the forecast for today’s indicator is 0.3%; a higher value would be beneficial for the Pound, taking the pair higher. Later in the day, at 12:00 pm GMT the Bank of England will announce the Interest Rate but no change is anticipated from the current 0.50%. However, caution is recommended as the market can react strongly to speculation about a future rate change.
