FOREX NEWS: RANGE-BOUND TRADING AMID A LACKLUSTER FUNDAMENTAL SCENE
 
EUR/USD


Forex News: Friday we saw mixed price action and yet another move into resistance that resulted in a bounce lower. The US Consumer Sentiment survey posted a lower than expected reading but the US Dollar still gained against the Euro and overall price remained in range-mode.

Technical Outlook

Price bounced several times at 1.2280 resistance and this suggests that we will see moves lower before bullish price action can resume. For today we expect to see a slow and ranging session, confined within the channel created by 1.2280 and 1.2195. A break of the 50 period EMA will make 1.2100 the next target but it will probably take more than one day to reach it.

Fundamental Outlook

Today the Eurogroup Meetings will take place in Brussels but other than that, the fundamental scene is calm and without major economic data.

GBP/USD

Friday the pair made another attempt to break the previous high located at 1.3942 but this resulted in a perfect bounce lower, thus establishing the level as strong resistance for the future.

Technical Outlook

The pair showed several times that it is overextended and the last bounce at 1.3942 is indicative of an extended move to the downside. The first target for today will be 1.3820, followed by the 50 period Exponential Moving Average. If the bulls take price higher from the current level and break 1.3942, we don’t expect strong moves above it.

Fundamental Outlook

The Pound will not be affected today by economic data so the technical aspect will take center stage.

FOREX NEWS: EURO STALLS, POUND GAINS MOMENTUM. WEF MEETINGS IN THE SPOTLIGHT

EUR/USD

Forex News: The pair remained inside the range for the entire yesterday’s trading session, mostly due to the lack of any fundamental developments or economic data releases. Trading was choppy and without important advances to either side.

Technical Outlook

The balance of power doesn’t favour either side as long as price remains confined inside the channel created by 1.2195 support and 1.2280 resistance. Usually when a horizontal channel is broken, price continues to move in the direction of the break for an extended period of time and because an uptrend is in place, we favour a bullish break, followed by upside movement. Today’s price action will likely be influenced by the WEF Meetings, so caution is advised.

Fundamental Outlook

The German ZEW Economic Sentiment will be released today at 10:00 am GMT, showing the opinions of about 300 German investors and professional analysts about a 6-month outlook for the German economy. The survey acts as a leading indicator of economic health but the impact is not always notable; nonetheless, numbers above the expected 17.8 can strengthen the Euro. Also, today is the first day of the World Economic Forum Annual Meetings held in Davos.


GBP/USD

The bias was mostly bullish yesterday and the Pound bulls made notable advances, breaking the previous top at 1.3942.

Technical Outlook

The break of 1.3942 marks the resumption of the uptrend and indicates that higher prices will probably follow. The next major hurdle is the psychological resistance at 1.4000, which is a big, round number that will very likely generate a bounce lower if it’s touched. It must be noted that the Relative Strength Index is again close to overbought and this increases the chances of a move lower.

Fundamental Outlook

The Pound will not be affected by major economic data today but United Kingdom representatives will attend the WEF Meetings and this may be a reason for increased volatility.

FOREX NEWS: US DOLLAR TAKES ANOTHER BEATING. HIGHER PRICES TO FOLLOW?

EUR/USD


Forex News: The pair remained in a tight range for most of yesterday’s trading session but later in the afternoon bullish pressure increased and we saw a break of the horizontal channel. However, it remains to be seen whether this break is true or not.

Technical Outlook

The move outside the horizontal channel created by 1.2195 support and 1.2280 resistance cannot be considered a true break at least at the time of writing. If it will turn out to be a clear break, then 1.2280 will become support and the next target will become 1.2350 followed by 1.2400. A more important resistance is located at 1.2570 but that’s a distance too big to be travelled over the course of one day.

Fundamental Outlook

We have a slow day ahead, with some Eurozone data making the headlines: at 9:00 am GMT the European Manufacturing and Services PMIs will be released, showing the opinions of purchasing managers about business conditions in the respective sector. The surveys act as leading indicators of optimism and economic health but the impact is often overlooked by market participants if the actual reading doesn’t differ a lot from expectations. The forecast for the Manufacturing PMI is 60.4 and for the Services PMI is 56.5.

GBP/USD

The US Dollar remained under pressure yesterday and allowed the Pound to take the pair into 1.4000 territory. The move was mostly technical but the USD weakness played an important role.

Technical Outlook

At the time of writing the pair is hovering near 1.4000, which is a major psychological level that may trigger a bounce lower. The overall bias is clearly bullish and the pair is in an uptrend so all moves south should be treated as retracements as long as price remains above the 50 EMA. The first target for the day is 1.4050 if 1.4000 turns into support.

Fundamental Outlook

Today’s highlight for the Pound will be the Average Earnings Index, scheduled for release at 9:30 am GMT. The index shows changes in the wages paid by employers for labor and acts as a leading indicator of inflation because when businesses increase the price they pay for work, they usually increase the price of their products. The expected change is 2.5%, same as previous and higher numbers usually strengthen the Pound.

FOREX NEWS: BREXIT IN THE LIMELIGHT ONCE AGAIN. POUND AND EURO POST MASSIVE GAINS

EUR/USD


Forex News: Yesterday the US Dollar remained under heavy selling pressure for the entire trading session and the pair made huge advances, reaching the resistance zone around 1.2400.

Technical Outlook

Part of yesterday’s move was triggered by new hints that the United Kingdom – European Union divorce will be smooth, so both the Euro and the Pound strengthened against the US Dollar. The pair is now sitting at a big round number (1.2400) which acts as resistance and this calls for a retracement. Some of yesterday’s buyers are likely to close out their positions due to profit taking and this normally generates a move lower. The overall bias is clearly bullish so after the pullback, we expect higher prices.

Fundamental Outlook

All eyes will be on the Euro today for the ECB Interest Rate announcement scheduled at 12:45 pm GMT and followed shortly after by Mario Draghi’s press conference (1:30 pm GMT). The rate is not expected to change (currently 0.00%) but if the ECB President will hint towards changes to the QE program, then the Euro is likely to show strong volatility.


GBP/USD

Positive British jobs data combined with hopes of a smooth Brexit were the main ingredients for yesterday’s huge rally that took the price above 1.4200. The pair is now prone to a move lower.

Technical Outlook

The pair is massively overextended and once the bullish momentum dims down we expect to see a pullback based on profit taking. The Relative Strength Index and Stochastic are both above their respective overbought levels, thus supporting a bounce lower. Of course, the main bias is clearly bullish so we will most likely see higher prices after the retracement.

Fundamental Outlook

The United Kingdom didn’t schedule major data releases for today so the technical aspect will decide the pair’s direction.
