FOREX NEWS: RESISTANCE REACHED, RETRACEMENTS UNDERWAY


EUR/USD


Forex News: Yesterday the bulls pushed the pair higher, reaching a high at 1.1170. The U.S. Unemployment Claims showed a better than expected number, contributing to a limited extent to a pullback that tested 1.1120.

Technical Outlook

The pair retraced and breached the previous resistance at 1.1120 but at the moment this level can be considered support because rejection here is present (candles have long wicks in both their upper and lower sides). The bias remains clearly bullish and we expect further advances, with 1.1170 as first target, followed by 1.1240. Even if the pair breaks 1.1120 to the downside, the extent of the move lower should be limited.

Fundamental Outlook

There are no major economic releases scheduled for the last day of the trading week, so we expect price action to remain driven by the technical aspect.


GBP/USD

Yesterday the Pound benefited from a much better reading for the British Retail Sales (expected 1.2%, actual 2.3%) and this was the main catalyst for a move into key resistance at 1.3050.

Technical Outlook

The pair has reached an important resistance level at 1.3050 and now the Stochastic and Relative Strength Index are approaching overbought levels. This is not a sure indication that price will bounce lower from here, because as seen numerous times before, price can continue higher or lower despite overbought or oversold levels. However, if we get a bounce south, this move will encounter support at 1.2990 followed by 1.2965. To the upside, a break of 1.3050 will make 1.3090 the immediate target.

Fundamental Outlook

Similar to the Euro and US Dollar, the Pound will not be affected by economic indicators today, so the main focus will be on the technical side.

FOREX NEWS: BEARISH PRESSURE MOUNTS. STRONG RESISTANCE AHEAD


EUR/USD


Forex News: Friday the buyers remained in control, taking the pair above the previous top at 1.1170. The economic scene was calm, without major releases and most of the move was technical.

[Image: DevuQuo.jpg]

Technical Outlook

After establishing a low at 1.1075 the pair started to move up, resuming the uptrend and breaking 1.1170. The first upper target is located at 1.1240 but it must be noted that the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is showing bearish divergence, which is present when price is making a higher high and the oscillator is making a lower high. This divergence and the overbought condition of the RSI are early warnings that price may bounce lower but overall the picture remains bullish.

Fundamental Outlook

The day’s only notable event is the Eurogroup Meeting, attended by Finance Ministers from the Euro Area member states, as well as other personalities from the political and financial scene. The impact on the currency varies depending on the matters discussed, but caution should be used throughout the day.


GBP/USD

Friday the pair erased an earlier drop occurred Thursday and moved back into the resistance at 1.3050. The bias is still bullish but bearish pressure has increased.

[Image: xO19UnK.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The sudden drop after the first encounter with 1.3050 resistance is a warning sign that the uptrend may be coming to a stop or at least that it is weaker than before. However, the bearish move was completely erased, so the bulls still have enough “juice” for a break of 1.3050; if that happens, the next key level is located at 1.3430 but it’s way too far to be reached during one day. A bounce at 1.3050 will probably take the pair into 1.2990 but our bias for today is mostly neutral.

Fundamental Outlook

The Pound will not be affected today by major economic releases but United Kingdom representatives will attend the Eurogroup Meetings and this could generate increased volatility.

FOREX NEWS: EURO BOOSTED BY ‘TOO WEAK’ COMMENTS, POUND STILL ON THE FENCE


EUR/USD


Forex News: The Euro got another boost yesterday, this time from Germany’s Merkel, who mentioned that she considers the currency “too weak”. The comment sent the pair higher, rebounding around 1.1170 and moving past 1.1240 resistance.

[Image: bo4xBJW.jpg]

Technical Outlook

Although the current move up is overextended, the Euro found new strength in Chancellor Merkel’s comments and now the resistance at 1.1240 is in danger. The overall picture remains bullish and the next target is located at 1.1340 if 1.1240 can be decisively broken. However, it is highly likely to see a bearish retracement before the pair can reach that zone. Bearish divergence is still present (price is making higher highs and the Relative Strength Index is making lower highs), thus increasing the chances of a pullback.

Fundamental Outlook

The day’s highlight is the release of the German IFO Business Climate, scheduled at 8:00 am GMT. This is a survey with a very large sample size of about 7,000 German businesses, focused on the respondents’ view on current business conditions as well as a 6-month outlook. The forecasted value is 113.1 and usually the Euro is strengthened by a higher than expected number but the impact of this indicator is not very high.


GBP/USD

The pair dipped below support, in close vicinity of the 50 period Exponential Moving Average but soon after, it climbed back to where the market opened. Overall yesterday’s session lacked substantial developments or a clear bias.

[Image: 2aGYKXU.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The pair showed rejection near the 50 period EMA but also failed to move past 1.3050 again. These are indications that control doesn’t clearly belong to either side for the moment, although from a longer term perspective the pair is still in an uptrend. Today’s price direction will be mostly determined by Governor Carney’s testimony and the technical side will be secondary. The levels to watch remain 1.3050 followed by 1.3090 to the upside and the 50 period EMA to the downside.

Fundamental Outlook

At 9:00 am GMT the Inflation Report Hearings take place. During these hearings, BOE Governor Mark Carney and several MPC members will testify before the Parliament's Treasury Committee on inflation and economic outlook. The Pound can be strongly affected by the testimony but the impact cannot be accurately predicted, thus caution is recommended.

FOREX NEWS: US DOLLAR SHOWS MINOR SIGNS OF RECOVERY. FOMC MEETING MINUTES EYED


EUR/USD


Forex News: The German IFO Business Climate survey released yesterday posted a better than expected value but this didn’t help the Euro to push higher, mostly because the pair was already overbought for a long period.

[Image: FuXWQKv.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The uptrend failed to break 1.1240 for the time being, although the pair climbed briefly above this resistance. In the short term it’s very likely to see a move into 1.1170, followed possibly by an encounter with the 50 period Exponential Moving Average. Overall the pair is in a clear uptrend but it is also under bearish pressure.

Fundamental Outlook

At 12:45 pm GMT, ECB President Mario Draghi will speak at the First Conference on Financial Stability, organized in Madrid by the Bank of Spain. The speech may have an impact on the Euro and volatility may be affected, so caution is recommended.

On the US Dollar side we have the FOMC Meeting Minutes, scheduled for release at 6:00 pm GMT. The document contains details of the reasons behind the latest interest rate decision but more importantly, it can contain hints about future monetary policy. If this is the case, the US Dollar will be strongly affected so, as always, we recommend caution.


GBP/USD

The Pound slipped lower yesterday but movement was choppy and lacked a strong bias. The 50 period Exponential Moving Average was touched but offered good support and pushed the pair higher.

[Image: gzzhsH4.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The failure to break the 50 period EMA to the downside shows that the pair is not yet ready for a strong move south but on the other hand, the bulls also lack clear determination. It looks like the pair is still trapped in a range, but with a slightly bullish bias as long as it remains above the 50 period EMA. To the upside 1.3050 is still the first target and a strong resistance.

Fundamental Outlook

The Pound will not be affected by any major economic indicators today but the pair’s direction will be influenced by the contents of the FOMC Meeting Minutes.

FOREX NEWS: US DOLLAR ON SHAKY GROUND: ADVANCES AGAINST POUND, LOSES GROUND AGAINST EURO


EUR/USD


Forex News: The pair had a flat day before the release of the FOMC Minutes but volatility increased at the time of the announcement and the Dollar weakened. The support at 1.1170 is still intact and shows clear rejection at the time of writing.

[Image: uOl87wW.jpg]

Technical Outlook

As long as the pair remains above 1.1170 support and above the 50 period Exponential Moving Average, our bias is bullish, anticipating a move into 1.1240 resistance and possibly above it. Almost all of yesterday’s price action took place very close to the mentioned support, so this level is clearly important for short term movement and a break would indicate that the bears are winning the battle and would make the 50 EMA the first target.

Fundamental Outlook

Today the two currencies will not be affected by major economic indicator releases but the OPEC Meetings take place in Vienna and this may influence the markets to a certain extent. Also, keep in mind that German and French banks will be closed in observance of Ascension Day.


GBP/USD

Overall the pair had a bearish session yesterday and the US Dollar losses seen at the time of the FOMC Minutes release were quickly erased. Price is now trading below the 50 period Exponential Moving Average, which is a bearish sign.

[Image: ipgI3To.jpg]

Technical Outlook

As long as the pair is trading below 1.2990 and below the 50 EMA, our bias is bearish for the short term, anticipating a move into 1.2900. It must be noted that the Stochastic has moved into oversold territory, so a potential move into the mentioned support might be followed by a bounce higher. Overall the pair remains in an uptrend but control doesn’t clearly belong to either side.

Fundamental Outlook

At 8:30 am GMT the Pound will be affected by the release of the Second Estimate Gross Domestic Product, expected to show a change of 0.3%, same as previous. This version of the GDP is less important than the Preliminary but more important than the Final so we can expect to see some movement, especially if the actual change will differ from analysts’ forecast; better than expected numbers usually strengthen the Pound.

FOREX NEWS: CAN THE US DOLLAR BOUNCE BACK? U.S. GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT EYED


EUR/USD


Forex News: Yesterday the pair spent the entire session bouncing between support and resistance, without breaking either of them. The economic scene was calm, without major releases from either side.

[Image: Gfeg4Rf.jpg]

Technical Outlook

By failing to break 1.1240, the pair printed a lower high yesterday and this suggests that we may see a move into the 50 period Exponential Moving Average in the near future. Price remains in an uptrend for the time being but the bulls are starting to lose their clear control and a move below the 50 EMA would further weaken the uptrend. To the upside the first important barrier remains 1.1240, followed by 1.1340.

Fundamental Outlook

At 12:30 pm GMT the Preliminary version of the U.S. Gross Domestic Product is released, showing changes in the total value of goods and services generated by the economy. This is the main gauge of economic performance and usually, higher numbers strengthen the US Dollar. Today’s forecast is a change of 0.9% compared to the previous 0.7%.

Also today the G7 Meetings start and will be attended by representatives of the 7 industrialized nations. The matters discussed may have an impact on the pair’s movement, so caution is recommended.


GBP/USD

British GDP numbers released yesterday disappointed and this reversed an earlier climb above 1.2990 resistance. Overall the session had choppy price action, with a bearish bias.

[Image: IlEKp1m.jpg]

Technical Outlook

If the bears can push price lower, keeping the pair below the 50 period Exponential Moving Average, we are likely to see a move into the support at 1.2900. A push above the 50 EMA will probably take the pair above 1.2990 – 1.3000 and closer to 1.3050. From a longer term perspective the pair is in an uptrend but the break of the 50 EMA signals a possible short term bear market.

Fundamental Outlook

The Pound will not be affected by any important economic indicators today but UK and US representatives will attend the G7 Meetings and this can influence the pair overall.

FOREX NEWS: ECB PRESIDENT DRAGHI TESTIFIES, U.S. AND U.K. BANKS CLOSED DUE TO HOLIDAYS


EUR/USD


Forex News: The U.S. Preliminary GDP released Friday posted a better value than analysts had anticipated (actual 1.2%, forecast 0.9%) and this was part of the reason why the US Dollar had a strong session.

[Image: vEGrRAI.jpg]

Technical Outlook

After the failure to break 1.1240 the pair moved into the confluence zone created by the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and the support at 1.1170. This zone will be today’s main focus, as a break would probably trigger a move into 1.1120 but a bounce will make 1.1240 the target once more. The pair is still in an uptrend, with no significant low printed, so the possibility of another climb shouldn’t be overlooked although bearish pressure is mounting.

Fundamental Outlook

Today at 1:00 pm GMT, ECB President Mario Draghi will testify in front of the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee about the economy and monetary policy. This speech can have a high impact on the Euro, so caution is recommended. U.S. banks will be closed in observance of Memorial Day and no major indicators will be released.


GBP/USD

The Pound weakened against most of its counterparts Friday, on concerns that Prime Minister May’s Conservative Party may not be able to win the June 8 election. The pair moved through several support levels and lost about 150 pips in a day.

[Image: XJh5Sd8.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The bears are in control of short term price action but the strong drop seen Friday is likely to retrace higher, possibly into the resistance at 1.2850. Both the Relative Strength Index and Stochastic are oversold, increasing the chances of a bounce higher from 1.2770 but bearish pressure is high and this could generate another move south after the said retracement. The lacklustre fundamental scene may contribute to a ranging session, without major developments.

Fundamental Outlook

UK banks will be closed due to Spring Bank Holiday and no important indicators will be released. This may contribute to a low-volatility day, with possible choppy price action.

FOREX NEWS: GERMAN INFLATION, U.S. CONSUMER CONFIDENCE – CATALYSTS FOR SURGING VOLATILITY


EUR/USD


Forex News: Price action was very slow yesterday, with a slightly bullish bias after a failed attempt to break the 50 period Exponential Moving Average. Draghi’s testimony did not have a notable impact on the pair and volatility remained low throughout the session.

[Image: iqjrV2j.jpg]

Technical Outlook

For now the pair has found good support at the confluence zone created by the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and the horizontal level at 1.1170. If the bears cannot break this zone soon, we will probably see a resurgence of the uptrend and possibly another test of 1.1240 key resistance. On the other hand, a break of 1.1170 and the 50 EMA will open the door for a touch of 1.1120 but currently price action lacks momentum and our bias is mostly neutral.

Fundamental Outlook

Today at 12:00 pm GMT we take a look at German inflation with the release of their Consumer Price Index. The indicator shows changes in the price paid by consumers for the goods and services they purchase and usually strengthens the Euro if it posts numbers above forecast, which for today is -0.1% from the previous 0.0%.

On the US Dollar side we have the Consumer Confidence, which is a survey with a large sample size of about 5,000 households, focused on the respondents’ opinions regarding the overall state of the economy. Today’s forecast is 120.1, the time of the release is 2:00 pm GMT and normally, a higher number strengthens the US Dollar but the impact is often medium.


GBP/USD

U.K. and U.S. banks were closed yesterday due to holidays but nonetheless, the big move seen Friday was retraced higher and the pair reached the previous support, now turned resistance.

[Image: KIEXW0O.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The pair has bounced almost perfectly at 1.2770, which remains a strong support and price is likely to react to it in the future. The latest strong move is bearish and yesterday’s climb can be considered a normal retracement, so if 1.2850 resistance holds, we expect to see a continuation of the move started Friday and potentially a break of 1.2770 or at least another test; otherwise, the pair will probably climb into the 50 period EMA.

Fundamental Outlook

There are no major economic indicators scheduled for release today, so the pair’s direction will be decided by the technical aspect and by the U.S. Consumer Confidence survey.

FOREX NEWS: BULLS ERASE LOSSES, EUROZONE INFLATION EYED FOR NEXT MOVE


EUR/USD


Forex News: The euro moved higher yesterday on speculation that the European Central Bank may remove easing at their June meeting. Now the pair is trading again above the 50 EMA and above support.

[Image: DVlSWd8.jpg]

Technical Outlook

Although the pair briefly dipped below the 50 period Exponential Moving Average, the bulls quickly pushed price higher after a bounce at 1.1120 support. This makes 1.1240 the first target and a break would mean uptrend resumption and probably a move into 1.1340 resistance. If the pair moves below the 50 period EMA again, we will probably see a break of 1.1120 and a move into 1.1075.

Fundamental Outlook

The Eurozone Consumer Price Index will be released today at 9:00 am GMT, offering insights into the state of European inflation. Today’s version is the Flash Estimate and tends to have a bigger impact than the Final, which is released about two weeks later, so we can expect to see increased volatility, with bullish bias if the actual number exceeds the forecast of 1.5% (previous 1.9%).


GBP/USD

The Pound rebounded and erased some of the losses suffered last week, making the short term bias bullish and bringing the pair above 1.2850, a level that acted as both support and resistance in the past.

[Image: JrvIaZs.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The resistance at 1.2850 initially pushed price lower but the sellers quickly ran out of steam and the pair continued higher, through the mentioned resistance, now turned support. The immediate target seems to be the 50 period Exponential Moving Average but if the line is not broken, we expect to see another push below 1.2850. The 50 EMA is in close vicinity of 1.2900 resistance and together the 2 elements create a confluence zone which will be tough to break.

Fundamental Outlook

The United Kingdom didn’t schedule important news releases for today, so the pair’s direction will be mainly decided by the technical side.

FOREX NEWS: US DOLLAR WEAK ACROSS THE BOARD AHEAD OF ADP NON-FARM EMPLOYMENT CHANGE


EUR/USD


Forex News: European inflation data came slightly below expectations yesterday but despite this fact, the pair climbed above the 50 period Exponential Moving Average and tested 1.1240 resistance, giving us a bullish session.

[Image: hOTPSVV.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The pair climbed above the 50 period EMA and above 1.1170, which has now turned into support once more. If the key resistance at 1.1240 can be surpassed with ease, we expect to see a move into the next resistance, located 100 pips higher, at 1.1340. Another failed attempt to break 1.1240 would show increased pressure and would make our bias bearish, aiming for 1.1170, followed by 1.1120.

Fundamental Outlook

Today at 12:15 pm GMT we take a first look at the U.S. employment situation with the release of the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change. The report shows changes in the total number of employed people, excluding Government and the farming sector. The indicator is less important than the Non-Farm Payrolls, released Friday but nonetheless, higher numbers are indicative of a thriving economy and usually strengthen the US Dollar. Today’s forecast is 181K, a small increase from the previous 177K.


GBP/USD

After a perfect bounce at 1.2770 the pair rallied and the bulls managed to break 1.2850. The US Dollar has weakened against most of its counterparts and this will likely generate additional upside movement.

[Image: 9QcBcoW.jpg]

Technical Outlook

The pair is facing an important hurdle represented by the 50 period Exponential Moving Average, followed by the horizontal resistance at 1.2900. If these two elements can be broken, we expect to see a climb into 1.2990 but this target will probably be reached after a retracement. If the pair bounces lower at the 50 EMA or at 1.2900, it will probably move into 1.2770 area once again.

Fundamental Outlook

The Pound will be affected today by the release of the British Manufacturing PMI, a survey derived from the opinions of purchasing managers about the state of the manufacturing sector. Numbers above the forecast usually strengthen the currency but the impact is limited if the actual number comes close to expectations. The indicator is released at 8:30 am GMT and the anticipated number is 56.5.
