US new home sales went down slightly in August, dropping at a 609,000 annual rate and decreasing by 7.6% as compared to the data last July, lower than the expected 8.6% decline. The USD was also strengthened by comments from the Fed’s lacker which has stated that there is a strong possibility of an interest rate hike in December.

However, the dropping bank equities in London’s trading session affected the trades on Tuesday.

However, none of the two central banks are expected to release new modifications, which leaves the EUR/USD pair at a lower value than the previous trading sessions. Fed Chair Janet Yellen has already stated that there is no definite period as to when the Federal Reserve would be increasing its interest rates. On the other hand, ECB Chair Mario Draghi has stated that the central bank’s negative rates are not the ones to be blamed for problems in the European banking sector.
The Durable Goods Orders data came out without much activity, even falling below the expected data release in August. The DGO report has also showed that capital equipment shipments had already decreased in value four months in a row, and investors are expecting that this will lead to a drop in Q3 GDP rates.
In general, the EUR/USD pair has been struggling to make progress during this week. The pair’s 4-hour chart indicates that its value has been unable to go above its moving averages. Momentum levels are expected to go south and below the 100 level. Meanwhile, RSI indicators are in the 47-point range and is leaning towards the negative. Selling interest are now below 1.1190 and this could make the currency pair go even lower at 1.1120 during the next trading sessions.
The EUR decreased its value after Germany’s Unemployment Change report turned out to be far weaker than what traders and investors had expected. Meanwhile, the USD strengthened slightly after hints that the Fed might possibly implement an interest rate hike before the year ends.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: April 20, 2017
The EUR/USD pair encountered a lot of selling pressure after it reached the 1.0750 trading range and was unable to make any significant progress beyond this particular region. The currency pair has tried in vain to break through this range and has since then resorted to consolidating between 1.0750 and 1.0700 region for the duration of yesterday’s session, with the pair’s bulls mostly responsible for maintaining the pair’s position within its range highs.
There were no economic news released during the previous session and this is why the EUR/USD pair merely engaged in a ranging and consolidating mode with a bullish undertone for the US dollar. The USD strength was not that pronounced and was only able to induce a minor correction in the EUR/USD pair. However, there are some members of the ECB that are saying that economic speculations in the eurozone could possibly exceed market expectations, however this did not make a significant dent in the current value of the EUR/USD pair. The 1.0750 trading range could possibly be a good position for the pair’s bears to push the currency pair down, where the selling is expected to surge. The currency pair could also possibly correct towards 1.0600 unless a major market phenomenon shocks the market yet again.
For today’s trading session, the US will be releasing its unemployment claims data as
well as its Manufacturing Index data while there are no expected releases from the EU economy. The US Treasury secretary will also be making a speech within the day and this is expected to increase today’s market volatility. On the other hand, the USD is expected to hold its ground and the currency pair will most likely remain within its current range.
