EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: September 7, 2017

As the week begins, the EUR/USD was seen consolidating and trading in a tight range which continues in the past 24 hours. But it is possible to change its course after the next 24 hours since the markets will draw their attention towards the single European currency, also with the plan of the European Central Bank in the near term.

The euro-dollar pair hovered at the level of 1.19 in the following day, however, there are no hints of any specific trend. Generally, markets appeared to be in a consolidation mode because traders and investors are waiting for the situation to become normal and calm again.

The tension and global risks remain high as the market somewhat predicts for an approaching attack from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. With this, the dollar weighed down with a lot of pressure since Monday.

However, the focus for this day could possibly be in the euro due to the announcement made by the ECB about interest rates which is followed by a press conference. The central bank planned to maintain the rates steady and this is what M. Draghi expected to say during the press con. Hence, this will determine the direction of the EUR in the short term.

The ECB is now very cautious about the strengthening of the euro as the bank failed to reverse or change the fundamentals and planning to put euro in a bid in order to limit the currency’s strength. If Draghi did not do so, then it is expected the EUR/USD will move under the 1.19 handle and drove near 1.18 in the near term. Otherwise, the pair will return to its highs at 1.2070 again.

Ultimately, there are no major releases from the United States or from the euro region. Therefore, the focus will turn to the developments in Korea, as well as to the ECB.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: September 13, 2017

The U.S. dollar moved sideways at the beginning of Tuesday session. Soon after, the pair rallied much higher. Currently, the level of 110 is being tested but there is still a gap that could raise some concerns. Nevertheless, this gap has been filled. However, traders should still be careful since there is a sign of “overbought” in the market. A pullback could happen after some time since the market is sensitive enough to react suddenly before going forward. Consequently, a breakout occurred at 110.25 level and the price will most likely move forward towards 111 level.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: September 19, 2017

The trading has been sluggish but the pound still remains to be the tops in the volatility as it continues to move the market in the past 24 hours. Yesterday, the only major news was the speech of Carney and the market anticipates a hawkish decision which further boosts the GBP/USD pair during the first half of the day. However, it declined later on.

Although Carney has mentioned monetary tightening, the Bank of England still needs to take manage the economy. Yet, there are no specific dates which frustrate the market as the British currency dropped after the speech and move lower than 1.35 for the day. A rebound occurred overnight and traded higher than 1.35 although this could just be a form of a correction in a bigger uptrend that could still change.

Considering the upcoming data and the recent developments in the U.K., it is possible for the BOE not to give attention to the economy and the central bank will most likely react but only in the succeeding months. The BOE already said that they will have a reaction amid the uncertainty with the ongoing Brexit. These would result in a rate hike in the upcoming months. Both the central bank and the market are anticipating for the Brexit uncertainty would wear off in the next few months which hasten the decision of the bank.

Today, there is no major news from the U.K. or from the U.S. Hence, consolidation is already anticipated ranges between 1.35 and 1.36 for the day as the market manages ahead of the FOMC meeting tomorrow. The bullishness is presumed to persist for the GBP/USD pair for short-term and target for 1.38 and 1.39 levels.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: September 25, 2017

On Friday, the EUR/USD had another range trading and consolidative day and attempted to break the 1.2000 level. However, a sudden strong selling beat the pair back which pushed the single European currency under the 1.20 region. This scenario was already anticipated since the elections in Germany is scheduled over the weekend, considering the fact that there is no one who would like to have large positions until the weekend.

The elections took place and the results were announced, showing already anticipated outcome which is the victory of Merkel’s party. However, something unexpected happened as the formation of a coalition started since many have said that Merkel is incapable to lead a government by herself only. Moreover, this could continue for some days or even weeks and the market is not in favor with this. There are only some instances where markets preferred some uncertainties and this situation could probably keep going and could lead for the euro sell-off.

During the trading session this morning, we saw some sell-off in EUR, but a retracement developed. As of this writing, the EURUSD appeared to be weak which might continue until the end of the day. The London session is much awaited due to a lot of news regarding the elections that the markets would receive, allowing the market to make its own decision about which way to go. Hence, the indecision and uncertainty brought an impact to the euro.

Ultimately, the ECB President Mario Draghi is expected to have his speech along with Germany’s election results which could possibly control the EUR trend for this day. According to projections, the euro-dollar pair will be under pressure throughout the day.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: October 4, 2017

The EUR/USD bounced back after the report for wholesale price inflation came in better than expected. As the yields provided some support which made the single European currency to gain more attraction in relation to the US dollar, with the continuous boiling of the Catalonian issues.
The greenback was able to sustain its gains due to a stronger than expected results of same-store sales, as it jumped almost to 5%.

The euro-dollar pair rebounded yesterday, followed by testing of the support region at 1.1661 area near the August lows. The pair’s resistance touched the 1.1822 level which is close to the 10-day moving average. Whence, the 10-day moving average moved beneath the 50-day moving average which indicates a downtrend in the medium-term in place.

Moreover, the momentum preserved its negative position while the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) histogram is printing in the red accompanied by a descending trajectory. This further shows that exchange rate became lower.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: October 10, 2017

The markets are generally dull yesterday in spite the Cable pair moved higher during the daytime trading session. Both Canada and the United States is a holiday and liquidity is expected to be low during the entire day, while Japan is a holiday as well. However, the bulls active in the pound market took advantage of the low liquidity in pushing the prices upwards.

Meanwhile, the British pound continues to struggle in the sluggish data causing the Bank of England to keep on hold in the near term. During the BoE’s meeting in the previous month, there are possibilities that the central bank would raise its rates in December this year, but the impact of political risks and weaker data prompt them to be on hold.

The Brexit process is excluded from the issues of political uncertainties rather the extension of the UK Prime Minister Theresa May from her position.

Currently, PM May is urging to resign even by her own party and it remains unclear how she will handle this issue as well as to maintain the focus on processing the Brexit referendum.

Moreover, there is a rising issue about the no-deal in the euro area which could negatively affect the Britain’s economy.

If these factors were combined, it could probably keep the GBP in the pressured area. For today, the UK manufacturing production data is scheduled to be released from the United States. When the liquidity became stable again, it is expected that the greenback will continue to decline but will support the GBP/USD pair to ascend.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: October 13, 2017

The GBP/USD pair keep on trading in an up and down direction which seems directionless, by the weakness of the U.S dollar helps the Cable pair to boost amid this period.

The struggle of the British currency continues due to the risks linked with the Brexit process, however, the dollar weakening appeared to be massive which affected others in moving up over the greenback. Until now, the Brexit process is ongoing but it remains to be seen any major development.

The delay in the talks continues while other discussion also does not provide any progress so far. This trigger doubts if Brexit talks could possibly break down and further led to question if the United Kingdom will depart from the European Union even without any accomplished deal. This could be the possible thing to happen at this particular moment, which further resulted in lot of uncertainty.

Moreover, the position of PM Theresa May seems to be threatened since last week because most of her party are against her leadership technique. Albeit, she was able to surpass such mess, she remains involved in a complicated scenario. These combined events pushed the sterling pound under pressure but the weakening of the dollar made it acceptable.

Ultimately, the retail sales and CPI data from the United States are scheduled today while the United Kingdom has no major data for this day. These set of data should be monitored carefully by market participants because inflation is considered a major parameter by the Federal Reserve, particularly, in making the decision about the rate hike in December. In case the figures showed strong data, the GBPUSD is expected to wane.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: October 17, 2017

The euro bucks pair failed to gain strength during the trading session on Monday, followed by expectations to drive higher amid sluggish US data issued on Friday. While the retail sales showed robust data as well, however, the CPI resulted to a lower than anticipated figures. This caused the EURUSD to test the 1.1870 range high but the pair continuously moved lower since that period.

The EUR/USD weakened until the end of the trading course last Friday and the activity happened yesterday was a mere continuation of that previous trend. On one side, the U.S. dollar was able to acquire further strength since there are no any hints about the next missile launch from North Korea sooner or later, but the markets are still expecting for such motion. Moreover, this supported the greens to stir gradually and firmly across the board in the morning. The momentum ascends during the American hours with a high possibility that John Taylor would replace Janet Yellen for the position as Fed Chair. Taylor is known to be hawkish and very supportive of Fed rate increase. He is also favored by President Trump as the hawkishness helped the USD to perk up versus its counterpart currencies. Also, this has pushed the pair downwards below the 1.1780 mark as of this writing.

Ultimately, the Germany ZEW economic sentiment is scheduled to release today and no other major news both from the European Union and the United States.

The strength of the greenbacks is predicted to resumed this day as the pair eventually turns towards the range lows at 1.1700 mark.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: October 23, 2017

The EUR/USD pair closed the day with a decline during the course on Friday and up to this day, the weakness keeps going. Also, the US dollar strengthens while the eurozone continues to manage the Spain’s condition that placed further pressure on the single European currency in the near-term. The market could possibly trend sideways in the next couple of days while waiting for the decision of the European Central Bank (ECB) on the short-term direction for the EUR. The complicated situation in Catalonia is not yet over since the Spanish administration dismissed the Catalonia government and appealed for new elections with an attempt to abandon the independence proposal. This caused uncertainties and confusion that affected the euro for today.

While traders keep on carefully tracking the situation to assess the impact on Spain and other parts of the European region.

There is not so much action expected during the first half of the week as the market count on the ECB. The central bank is anticipated to talk about the QE tapering in the meeting and Draghi’s statement and the press conference would likely lead to high volatility towards the euro after some time.

Moreover, the ECB did not yet provide any definite timeline for the tapering and the markets are waiting to receive some information from them. The greenbacks persist to remained steady despite the fact that the arriving figures from the United States seem choppy. This resulted in a disorganized state of the dollar. Also, it is projected to fix itself over the following weeks which could possibly prompt a strong trend.

Ultimately, there are no major economic releases from the European Union or the United States scheduled for today. Hence, the complicated condition of the Korean region and the risks in Catalonia are predicted to rule over the market trend for today.
