FOREX NEWS: IT’S NFP DAY. EXPECT FIREWORKS!


EUR/USD


Forex News: Yesterday after an initial drop that touched the 50 Period Exponential Moving Average, the bulls stepped in and took the pair very close to the recent resistance at 1.0950. The session was bullish but the pair is still in a range.

Technical Outlook

The bounce at the 50 period Exponential Moving Average shows that the US Dollar is not yet strong enough to take the pair significantly lower. On the other hand, the bullish move seen yesterday shows that upwards pressure has increased and that we will probably see a move into 1.1000 psychological level if 1.0950 can be broken. Keep in mind that today the technical aspect will be somewhat secondary to the fundamental, due to the important U.S. jobs data release.

Fundamental Outlook

Today the spotlight will be on the US Dollar for the release of what is considered the most important employment data: the Non-Farm Employment Change (aka Non-Farm Payrolls). The scheduled time is 12:30 pm GMT and the expected change is 194K, much higher than last month’s 98K. Higher numbers usually strengthen the US Dollar but keep an eye on the Average Hourly Earnings released at the same time because lately this indicator seems to gain a lot of importance. If people are paid more for their work, they tend to spend more and this ultimately increases economic activity, strengthening the US Dollar as well. The expected change is 0.3%, while the previous was 0.2%.

Round two of the French Presidential Election will take place Sunday and this will most likely affect price on Monday’s opening but possibly also today.


GBP/USD

The British Services PMI showed a reading of 55.8, higher than the expected 54.6 and this was part of the reason why the pair had another bullish session, reversing an early drop below support.

Technical Outlook

The failed break of the support at 1.2855 and the move back above the 50 period Exponential Moving Average shows increased bullish pressure and makes us anticipate a move into 1.2965. Another move below the 50 EMA and 1.2855 would invalidate the bullish scenario and would open the door for a move into 1.2770; however, this is a less likely scenario. Price behaviour will be strongly affected by the fundamental side today and we may experience irregular movement.

Fundamental Outlook

The United Kingdom didn’t schedule major economic releases for today, so the pair will be mainly influenced by the U.S. employment data and by the technical aspect.

FOREX NEWS: FRANCE GETS A NEW PRESIDENT, EURO GETS A VOLATILITY BOOST


EUR/USD


Forex News: Friday the spotlight was on the U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls that posted a figure of 211K, better than the anticipated 194K. However, last month’s number was revised from 98K to 79K and this was the main reason why the US Dollar weakened.

[Image: EOOnaWK.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The pair finished last week right on the psychological resistance located at 1.1000. If this level will be broken, we expect price to consolidate above it and then shoot up to 1.1100 – 1.1120 but this will not happen during the course of one day unless surprising events take place. If the level can’t be broken, the pair will probably move back into 1.0945 – 1.0950 zone but keep in mind that the Euro will be influenced by the French Election, so the technical aspect is secondary.

Fundamental Outlook

The German Factory Orders will be released today at 6:00 am GMT, expected to post a reading of 0.7% from the previous 3.4%. The report shows changes in the value of orders placed with manufacturers and acts as a leading indicator of production and economic activity, with higher numbers strengthening the Euro. The effect is often low to medium.

French banks will be closed today in observance of Victory Day but the Presidential Election will probably trigger irregular price action and increased volatility.


GBP/USD

Friday the bulls continued the move started after the bounce at the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and managed to break the previous high located at 1.2965. Most of the US Dollar weakness was generated by the lower revision of last month’s NFP.

[Image: LOZKUoi.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The next resistance is located at 1.3050 and we expect the pair to retrace lower once it gets there. The level at 1.3000 is also an important hurdle and the Relative Strength Index is very close to overbought on H4 and Daily charts, so we might see a retracement lower when one of the mentioned levels is touched. That being said, as long as the pair is making higher highs and higher lows and is trading above the 50 EMA, we consider it in an uptrend so we favor the long side. 

Fundamental Outlook

The United Kingdom didn’t schedule any important economic indicators for today, so the pair’s direction will be mainly decided by the technical aspect.

FOREX NEWS: BOUNCE OR BREAK SCENARIOS IN PLAY, ON A LACKLUSTRE FUNDAMENTAL SCENE


EUR/USD


Forex News: The French Presidential Election has concluded but the Euro wasn’t severely affected by the outcome. Overall the currency weakened and the pair dropped after a brief move above 1.1000 resistance.

[Image: Mbaoz1k.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The sellers managed to take the pair below the support at 1.0950 and now bearish pressure has increased, making the 50 period Exponential Moving Average the immediate target. Once this barrier is touched, the pair will decide its next direction through a classic ‘bounce or break’ scenario: a break of the EMA will probably take the pair back towards 1.0850 support, while a bounce will make 1.1000 the next destination. As long as the pair is trading between 1.0950 and the 50 EMA, our view is neutral.

Fundamental Outlook

The U.S. Job Openings is today’s only notable release, scheduled at 2:00 pm GMT. The indicator shows the number of available jobs, excluding the farming industry but its impact is often low; usually, higher numbers than expected strengthen the US Dollar. Today’s forecast is 5.67 Million while the previous was 5.74 Million.


GBP/USD

The pair moved lower during the first day of the week but price action was rather slow and the pair remained in a range of about 50 pips for most of the day.

[Image: gH1MvDi.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The pair created a temporary top at 1.2990 and then dropped below 1.2965, probably en route to 1.2900 and the 50 period Exponential Moving Average. From a longer term perspective, we expect 1.2990 to be taken out and the pair to climb into 1.3050 but currently price seems overextended and in need of a deeper retracement. We will probably see a drop into the 50 period EMA, which is in close vicinity to the support at 1.2905 – 1.2900 and there, the next direction will be decided.

Fundamental Outlook

The Pound won’t be affected by major economic releases today, so the technical aspect will be the main market mover.

FOREX NEWS: BEARISH PRESSURE ESCALATES, SUPPORT LEVELS THREATENED


EUR/USD


Forex News: The pair had a bearish session yesterday, on the back of a stronger US Dollar, boosted partly by higher than expected values posted by the JOLTS Job Openings.

[Image: m89rTl7.jpg]

Technical Outlook

Price broke the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and the support at 1.0900, showing strong bearish momentum, so we anticipate a move into 1.0850. At the time of writing the pair is showing rejection at the previous low (1.0875) but this hurdle will probably be taken out soon. If the support at 1.0850 is broken, we will probably see a move to close the weekly gap in the near future, but this scenario will be invalidated for now if price moves back above the 50 period EMA.

Fundamental Outlook

ECB President Mario Draghi will speak today at the Dutch House of Representatives, about the impact of monetary policy. The effect of this speech is not known but as usual, caution should be used whenever heads of central banks speak publicly. The scheduled time is 12:00 pm GMT.


GBP/USD

The pair had a mixed session yesterday, first dropping into support and then bouncing higher from the confluence zone created by the 50 EMA and the level at 1.2905. For now the pair is still in an uptrend but bearish pressure has increased.

[Image: Ddo9cI6.jpg]

Technical Outlook

Price is facing an important support zone created by the Exponential Moving Average and the level at 1.2905. Judging by yesterday’s trading session, price is reacting to this zone because it moved higher immediately after touching it, but as long as the pair stays below 1.2965, we expect a drop through this zone and into 1.2855 – 1.2850. The oscillators are showing good downside momentum and are not oversold, further increasing our bearish bias; however, keep in mind that we are still in an uptrend, so the possibility of a move up shouldn’t be ruled out.

Fundamental Outlook

The Pound has another light day in terms of economic releases, but this doesn’t mean that the pair will have a slow trading day; however, the technical aspect will prevail.

FOREX NEWS: POUND IN THE SPOTLIGHT: BOE INTEREST RATE, INFLATION REPORT AND MONETARY POLICY SUMMARY


EUR/USD


Forex News: The speech of ECB President Draghi was shifted an hour earlier than initially scheduled but the Euro remained mostly unfazed by the event and was stuck in 40 pip range for the most part of yesterday’s trading session.

[Image: B6BIskY.jpg]

Technical Outlook

Although movement was slow yesterday, the pair remained below the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and broke the previous low at 1.0875. These are bearish signs, which make us anticipate a break of 1.0850 in the short term, followed by an extended move to the downside, possibly to the place where the bullish gap originated. This scenario is valid as long as the pair remains below the 50 period EMA.

Fundamental Outlook

At 12:30 pm GMT the United States Producer Price Index comes out, showing changes in the price charged by producers for their goods. The index acts as a leading indicator of inflation because a higher producer price usually means that consumer prices will increase. The forecast is a change of 0.2% (previous -0.1%) and higher values tend to strengthen the US Dollar but often the impact is limited if the actual number matches expectations.


GBP/USD

The Cable had another close encounter with the resistance at 1.2990 but immediately bounced lower, thus offering more hints that the uptrend is starting to fade.

[Image: Sc09NBr.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The bulls failed to take out 1.2990 resistance but the pair is still trading above the 50 period Exponential Moving Average, so the bias is not yet bearish. Once (and if) the 50 EMA is broken, we expect price to move below 1.2905 and closer to 1.2855 but it must be noted that today is an important day for the Pound, due to multiple Bank of England releases. The technical aspect will be secondary and the pair’s direction will be mostly decided by the fundamentals.

Fundamental Outlook

At 11:00 am GMT the Bank of England will release the Monetary Policy Summary, containing their interest rate decision as well as the breakdown of the rate votes and commentary about the reasons that influenced the votes. The rate is not expected to change (currently 0.25%) but if the Summary contains hints about future changes, volatility will increase on all Pound pairs.

At the same time the BoE will release the Inflation Report, containing their economic and inflation predictions for the next 2 years. This is yet another reason for increased volatility so the Pound is likely to have a busy day ahead.

FOREX NEWS: FOCUS SHIFTS ON THE US DOLLAR: U.S. RETAIL SALES AND INFLATION DATA


EUR/USD


Forex News: Yesterday’s trading session belonged to the bears, who managed to test 1.0850 support, partly helped by a better than expected value of the U.S. Producer Price Index.

[Image: KxJBcWp.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The pair is slowly making its way lower but the support at 1.0850 is still not broken and can reject price higher. The short term bias is bearish, anticipating a move into 1.0800 and a closing of the gap later on. A move above the 50 period Exponential Moving Average would invalidate our bearish scenario for the time being and keep in mind that today the US Dollar will be affected by important releases so the technical side will be secondary.

Fundamental Outlook

At 12:30 pm GMT the U.S. Consumer Price Index is released, showing changes in the price paid by consumers for the goods and services they purchase. The expected value is 0.3% and because the indicator has inflationary implications, higher numbers usually strengthen the US Dollar.

At the same time another important indicator comes out: the U.S. Retail Sales, expected to show a change of 0.6% from the previous -0.2%. Sales made at retail level represent the main part of consumer spending, which in turn accounts for the major part of economic activity, so higher numbers can also strengthen the U.S. Dollar.


GBP/USD

The Bank of England kept the rate unchanged as expected but the Monetary Policy Summary and Governor Carney’s press conference triggered a boost of volatility and moved the pair into key support.

[Image: SD8LYMx.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The pair has moved strongly below the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and is now facing a key level at 1.2855 (1.2850). We will probably see some sort of rejection here, but the extent should be limited and followed by a break of the mentioned support, if the pair will remain below the 50 period EMA and below 1.2900. Also keep in mind that the US Dollar will be affected by important economic releases that will play a major role for today’s price direction.

Fundamental Outlook

The Pound doesn’t have anything major on the economic calendar, so the pair’s movement will be mainly influenced by the USD releases and the technical aspect.

FOREX NEWS: SUPPORT HOLDS, BULLS STEP BACK INTO THE GAME


EUR/USD


Forex News: U.S. Consumer Price Index disappointed Friday by showing a change of only 0.2% (forecast 0.3%), but also the Retail Sales showed a 0.4% change compared to the expected 0.6%. All this combined with rumours of ECB tapering the QE, triggered a strong move up.

[Image: P1r6LGF.jpg]

Technical Outlook

Friday’s move up was fast and strong and broke the 50 period Exponential Moving Average to the upside, thus making the short term bias bullish. However, it must be noted that usually, moves like this one are followed by a counter move or a period of stagnation so we might see a descent into 1.0900 and the 50 EMA. If this support zone holds, the next destination will be 1.0950.

Fundamental Outlook

Today there are no major releases scheduled for either the US Dollar or the Euro, so the technical aspect will prevail and will be the main market mover.


GBP/USD

Friday the pair bounced at support following weak U.S. CPI and Retail Sales data but the bullish advances weren’t substantial and overall we had a slow session, below the 50 period Exponential Moving Average.

[Image: 74axydi.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The support at 1.2855 (1.2850) rejected price twice during the recent period and this may be an indication that the bears lack the strength to clearly end the uptrend. The upside is capped by the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and as long as the pair is trading between these two barriers, our short term bias is neutral. A strong break will be probably followed by an extended move in that direction.

Fundamental Outlook

Similar to the United States and the rest of Europe, the United Kingdom didn’t schedule major news releases, so the technical side will decide the pair’s direction.

FOREX NEWS: POUND AFFECTED BY INFLATION DATA, STRONG MOVES AHEAD


EUR/USD


Forex News: The pair remained above the 50 period Exponential Moving Average yesterday and had a strongly bullish session, without retracing lower. No major economic indicators were released, so most of the move was technical.

[Image: moObbTV.jpg]

Technical Outlook

Yesterday’s move easily broke through 1.0950 resistance and came very close to 1.1000 psychological level, bringing the Relative Strength Index and Stochastic in overbought territory. The overextended position of the pair calls for a retracement lower (possibly into the 50 period EMA) although the bias is bullish for the medium term. However, it should be noted that from a longer term perspective the pair is still in a range.

Fundamental Outlook

At 9:00 am GMT the Euro will be affected by the release of the Eurozone Gross Domestic Product, which is the main gauge of economic performance across the European Union. The forecast is a change of 0.5% and usually the release has a stronger impact if the actual number differs from expectations. Higher values strengthen the currency.

At the same time the German ZEW Economic Sentiment is released, showing the opinions of about 275 German professional investors and analysts about the state of the German economy. It acts as a leading indicator of optimism and economic health, and higher numbers than the forecast 22.3 are usually beneficial for the Euro.


GBP/USD

The pair had a slower session than the EUR/USD but maintained a bullish bias and managed to climb above the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and above 1.2905 resistance. The economic scene was calm, without major releases.

[Image: N57Offy.jpg]

Technical Outlook

If the current move above the 50 period EMA and 1.2905 can be sustained, the pair is likely to climb into 1.2965 in the near future. A break below the EMA and 1.2905 will open the door for 1.2855, a level which proved a strong support in the past and may reject falling prices higher. The oscillators are showing good bullish momentum, without being overbought, thus increasing the chances of an extended move north.

Fundamental Outlook

At 8:30 am GMT we take a look at the always important British CPI, which is the main gauge of inflation in the UK. The indicator measures changes in the price paid by consumers for the goods and services they purchase and usually strengthens the Pound if it posts a reading above the forecast, which for today is 2.6% (previous 2.3%).

FOREX NEWS: EURO POPS HIGHER. THE BULLS RUN THE SHOW


EUR/USD


Forex News: The pair climbed for more than 100 pips yesterday, without retracing lower and the bulls scored a major victory by taking price way above 1.1000 psychological level.

[Image: wT8v2Gl.jpg]

Technical Outlook

At the time of writing the pair was hovering around the 1.1080 mark, after a strongly bullish session during which the pair moved straight up. The Relative Strength Index and Stochastic are both extremely overbought and this calls for a retracement lower but the overall picture is bullish and we expect to see a move into the next area of resistance, located at 1.1100 – 1.1120.

Fundamental Outlook

At 9:00 am GMT we take a look at European inflation with the release of the Final version of the Consumer Price Index. This is the last version and tends to have the lowest impact but it shouldn’t be overlooked because it can generate increased volatility. The forecast for today is 1.9% and usually a higher number strengthens the Euro.


GBP/USD

British inflation showed a better than expected value but this created just a quick spike up, followed by a drop and by another move that almost erased the earlier dip. Overall we had mixed movement, without a clear bias.

[Image: VCoZnBx.jpg]

Technical Outlook

It looks like the pair is stuck in a range and control doesn’t clearly belong to either side. Lately price doesn’t react to the level at 1.2900 and we saw it breached several times, so the boundaries of the range are 1.2855 as support and 1.2990 as resistance. Until the pair exits one of these boundaries, we expect more of this choppy movement, without a clear winner. The oscillators lack momentum and the 50 period EMA is flat, further showing the ranging state of the pair.

Fundamental Outlook

The British Average Earnings Index comes out at 8:30 am GMT, showing changes in the price that businesses pay for labor. If people are paid more, they tend to spend more, thus boosting consumer spending and this leads to increased economic activity and usually a stronger Pound. Today’s forecast is a change of 2.4%, while the previous was 2.3%.

FOREX NEWS: US DOLLAR TAKES A BIG HIT. ALL EYES ON POUND FOR RETAIL SALES RELEASE


EUR/USD


Forex News: The Euro continued to strengthen and the pair showed another bullish session, moving above the long term resistance located at 1.1120. Despite the overextended condition of the pair, the buyers remained in control. 

[Image: ieIKTds.jpg]

Technical Outlook

Since the latest move up started, only one candle was bearish and the pair climbed strongly, without any form of retracement lower. The Relative Strength Index and Stochastic are extremely overbought and this would normally call for a pullback but the US Dollar totally lacks strength, making us anticipate further advances north for the pair. The previous resistance at 1.1120 – 1.1100 may turn into support, while to the upside the next level of importance is 1.1240.

Fundamental Outlook

At 12:30 pm GMT the U.S. Unemployment Claims are released, showing the number of people who asked for unemployment related benefits. A higher number than the forecast 240K usually weakens the US Dollar and the opposite is true for a lower number but this indicator has a low-to-medium impact, mostly because it is released every week.


GBP/USD

British jobs data matched analysts’ expectations but US Dollar selling pushed the pair higher, into the top of the channel, at 1.2990.

[Image: vlnDjoP.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The pair is facing a strong resistance at 1.2990 – 1.3000. If this area can be surpassed, we expect to see a move into 1.3050, followed by 1.3100 but we cannot rule out a bounce lower from the current resistance. However, the weakness showed by the US Dollar against most of its counterparts makes us anticipate a break of the level and a continuation higher.

Fundamental Outlook

The British Retail Sales are today’s highlight, released at 8:30 am GMT and expected to show a change of 1.2% compared to the previous -1.8%. Sales made at retail levels represent the major part of consumer spending and usually a higher number strengthens the currency, because it shows increased economic activity.
