EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: October 26, 2017

The EUR/USD climb higher due to various reasons including the result of the meeting of the ECB, the scheduled statement and the press conference later this day. The dollar also weakened across the market which pushed euro to move higher. Moreover, today is a significant day for the week. 

The statement and announcement from the ECB are anticipated after the press conference of Draghi. As the market expects the release of the statement, the ECB would give their hints and plans related to QE tapering during the press conference. If they were able to give a definite plan and timeline, it would be a big help for the euro which is already presumed to rally after. The data from the eurozone gives out positive data and for this reason. Hence, the ECB does not have a reason to postpone the tapering but the pace of the program is still in question.

Draghi is exerting oneself not to appear hawkish in the past few months to avoid pushing the euro too high. It is yet to be known today is the policy is to be sustained. It will not be an easy task for him since the euro will most likely go up since there is no definite timeline of the QE tapering from the central bank. Other than that, the data from the U.S. in the past 24 hours has also been positive as the data on durable goods came out stronger than anticipated. As for the dollar, the GDP data would be significant which will be released from the U.S. tomorrow.

For today, consolidation is anticipated during the first half of the day while the traders are already preparing for the ECB release in the afternoon. Volatility will also be present in the trading following the announcement and the press conference. It is recommended to wait on the sidelines until everything has settled down.

USD/CAD Fundamental Analysis: October 30, 2017

The U.S. dollar against the Canadian dollar closed the week high which makes the next week trading to be awaited by traders. Initially, the dollar has been moving steadily but the negative data the previous week pushed the pair to climb above towards 1.26 level with risks imposing the possibility for a breakout towards the level of 1.27.

The movement of the trend was driven by the retail sales data from the Canada which was published in the previous week that gave out a week data and has further escalate doubts to the BOC which has an inclination to increase its rates in short-term. The loonies may have declined but with the incoming Monetary policy statement from the BOC and press conference would open the possibility to become hawkish again. Although, they have been clear in the past that the central bank would not raise their rates for the remaining months in 2017 and presumably even in the early months of the following year. This lessens the hope for it and frustrated the market which resulted to a sell-off in the loonies.

On the other side, the dollar has held steady and was further pushed by a positive GDP data that may have raised the possibility of a rate hike in December. The pair moved towards the 1.28 level and even further towards 1.29 by the end of the week. However, the prices were affected by the reports on who will be the succeeding Fed Chair with chances to be Powell. At the same time, the oil prices soared which assisted in strengthening the Canadian dollar and drove the price to close for the week.

For this week, the Canadian dollar is anticipated to rally in the beginning which includes settlement of payments in oil in the present time of the year. In the latter part of the week, the labor data from the U.S. and Canada are to be released which would have an impact on the prices of the pair. Moreover, if the results of the data are good, the USD/CAD pair would rally and this would confirm the next Fed rate hike in December.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 2, 2017

The EUR/USD pair waited for the FOMC minutes throughout the trading day on Wednesday, the minutes are expected to be issued during the American session. Aside from this pair, there are other many currency pairs that desire to know the thoughts of Fed members regarding the future rate hikes with expectations to help them determine the short-term trend for the U.S dollar.

This ensures that the single European currency was fixed in a very tight range at 30 pips, while markets in a long position understand that any choppy movement would lead to an unprofitable trade. Since the focus is centered on the positioning of trades prior the major news events coupled with large trends once the news was issued.
It became more interesting due to the subsequent news later this week which has equal of importance with concerns of the greens. It further opened the door for the possible reversal by the FOMC with the approaching news events.

The FOMC failed to achieve its target, however, most of the text remained unchanged, particularly the talks of future outlook that came in lower than market expectations. This resulted in a sudden minor shock for the USD, met some buying and pushed the bucks to a tight range until the end of the course after the minute's publication.
Considering all the projections formulated the entire day, the minutes conversely disappointed the markets which further triggered choppy data by means of the ADP report released earlier the day.

There are reports that confirmed Jerome Powell as the next head of the Fed Reserve but caused the dollar to weaken later this day, nevertheless, the effect of this news would likely be temporary.

Ultimately, the attention was turned towards the British pound as there are no releases from the United States or the European region for today. Hence, it is safe to say that there is some tight ranging and consolidation within the euro-dollar pair amid the trading day while waiting for the US employment statistics tomorrow which could roughly confirm the rate increase in December.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 17, 2017 

The EUR/USD pair had been moving unsteadily in the past few days as the pair moves up and down with high volatility as the greenback moves without a specific direction in the present global tone. The dollar is appealing to be bought in the short term yet the market maybe thinking twice. Although, there are instances where the rally of the dollar where it is being sold at a faster rate.

This maintains the pressure in the dollar and which would be advantageous for the euro. Whatís keeping the market optimistic for the dollar is a rate hike from the Fed in December although, the market does not strongly believe this. There are no specific indications yet with indecisiveness of Fed members while the data move at a steady pace.

This has kept the dollar weak with any news or data to be released. In the past 24 hours, the euro decline to the area of 1.1750 which is seen to move down in general. The latest relevant news would be the continuation of the development of missiles from North Korea and the ongoing investigation on the accusation of Russian intervention in the US Presidential elections. These events would drive the dollar down.

For today, the speech of Draghi are expected during the London session but it is unlikely that he would discuss the monetary policy. Hence, traders should get ready for choppiness in trading this pair and be cautious in the liquidity of the pair.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 20, 2017

The British pound persisted to move at a fixed rate but it is the opposite to the euro currency because of the news from German coalition talks. The pound has taken advantage of the low dollar as it rose to 1.32 level. However, it is still to be observed if this move higher.

The latest news from Germany will most likely affect the British pound as well as other countries of the Eurozone with the ongoing Brexit talk. Thinking about it, the current situation facing Merkel in Germany may be similar with U.K. Prime minister Theresa May as she also fights her own battle. However, it should be considered that any changes to cause uncertainty would most likely affect the Brexit as well. This will not be favorable to Germany or U.K. Nevertheless, both countries would want a good transition and come to a conclusion that would be beneficial for both ends.

Any uncertainty in Germany would slow down the talks and look forward to an agreement which could complicate more things further and be disadvantageous for the pound in long-term. Aggressive leaders are best suited in the current situation as they are looking for a conclusion. However, some domestic concerns are hampering the process which gets their attention. For short term, the British pound could have some gains because of uncertainty from Germany. However, this could have a negative impact on the U.K. for the long term if this situation is prolonged.

For today, the British pound seems to be put under pressure as it depreciates against euro during the London session. There is no major news from the U.S. or from the U.K. in other times of the day. Consequently, the consolidation with a bearish tone is anticipated to take place today.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 20, 2017

The EUR/USD were pressured by reports about failed coalition talks in Germany. The pair was having a smooth direction since last week as the market may be unaware of the unfavorable incidents, which shocked the markets upon the emergence of the news earlier on Monday. Moreover, this pushed the single European currency lower after its strengthened during the trading course last week.

The news that was released in the morning reports about the negotiations of Merkelís parties in forming a coalition, as the FPD agreed to withdraw from the talks considering the unfeasible formation of the 4-way coalition at this particular moment. Hence, this caused trouble towards the entire government since Merkel would likely put all his effort to close a deal with other parties.

Germany is regarded to be the bedrock of the whole European region due to its well-established economy and government with the leadership of Merkel. Since her position is currently in jeopardy coupled with the ongoing Brexit, the scenario seems to have chaotic results that should be avoided. As the election results were issued, it disappointed Merkel as she failed to gain the victory among the majority which further exacerbates the situation.

As expected, this caused the euro to sell off and the EURUSD currently moved down towards the 1.1730 level as of this writing. Further selling is anticipated upon the development of the story and during the London trading session. ECB President Mario Draghi will have several speeches scheduled for this day, however, it appears that Draghi is in doubt to discuss monetary policy and was surprised by the current events in Germany

The lows of the range in the 1.16 mark is projected to be under pressure throughout the trading course.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 21, 2017

The EUR/USD pair has a choppy which lead the whole trading session in the past 24 hours.Although, this was influenced by the events in Germany which have put pressure on the market. The euro was affected by the news of the coalition talks in Germany which resulted in a breakdown and declined to a much lower rate during the Asian session. It seems that the euro will be weakened but this was reversed during the trading session as it gained strength.

The euro climbed higher reaching the level of 1.18 as the market ignored the happenings which moved the whole trend higher. It was clearly shown that there is some pressure in the pressure which would be more obvious later on. It initiated during the U.S. session but the euro declined once again lower than the 1.1750 by the end of the day and will most likely continue.

Merkel has been facing an obstacle that has weakened both locally and internationally amid the Brexit negotiations. She would want to be in alliance with other parties although, she knows that this would not be easy. Another option is for her to go for another election but this would bring more uncertainty. It cannot be determined if she will come out stronger or would weaker position in the election. This shaken the German market which also affected the euro.

For today, there is no major news anticipated from the Eurozone or from the U.S. The euro is anticipated to trade in a weak manner in the course of the day and reached lower than the level of 1.17 until there are still pressure present in the market.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 23, 2017

The GBP/USD pair gained more strength from the American dollar than the British pound after the publication of FOMC minutes. The announcement of budget and UK economic outlook had a slight impact towards the pound, hence, the weakness that was left in the dollar provided support to the Cable pair in order to edged higher.

This day is predicted to be highly volatile for the GBP due to the UK budget announcement and FOMC minutes in the United States later. If this happens, the GBPUSD would decline to the 1.3220 mark during the London hours after the issued news relative with the Britainís budget, however, when the details were already published the flow is expected to reverse.

The announced budget seems to have huge borrowing amount that softened the sterling initially but reduced the trend productivity. This helped the pair to make a reversal and drive upwards near the 1.3250 level. Moreover, the GBP remained unchanged until the issuance of the Fed minutes which said that majority of the members agreed with the rate hike in December, but the following increase is not yet sure.

Mainly, concerns regarding inflation continues and the central bank stated that they wanted to wait for further upcoming data prior making a final decision for a further rate increase. The focus of the market is centered on the dovish statement that will weaken the greenbacks as well as to support the Cable to move near the 1.33 level. The pair is currently trading above 1.33 and would be better to push towards the mark 1.34 in the short-term.

Ultimately, the second estimate for the UK GDP is expected to release and marks the onset of the long weekend due to US Thanksgiving celebration. This indicates that liquidity may dry up while volatility could possibly lower down. In that event, it is not surprising for a boring consolidation for the rest of the day.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 24, 2017

The British pound moved at a steady pace for the day as the pound bulls could not really make use of the long weekend in the U.S. which induced low volatility in the past 24 hours. This resulted in a subdued trading of the currency since the GDP data has been released which does not have much of an effect on traders as well as the volatility.

The publication of the GDP data marked the day which is already anticipated. Yet, this did not have any significant effect on the pound quotations. This would be beneficial for the pound bulls since the economy is about to balance out. Moreover, another budget data which was released the other day giving a positive result that sustained the rate of the pound for short-term amid the Brexit negotiations.

The domestic concerns of the country which were face UK PM May and the German leader Merkel but this has a minimal effect on the Brexit talks. It is already presumed that a breakout would occur after the December meeting which is yet to be observed where there will be an agreement between countries. Ultimately, this will be beneficial for the U.K. economy as well as the pound yet this are just prospects.

For today, there is less economic calendar along with the U.S. Thanksgiving for the weekend. The pound is anticipated to range within narrow levels and consolidate through the course of the day. This day will most likely result in a lackluster trading as the weekend is drawing closer.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 1, 2017

The EUR/USD pair resumed trading in a robust manner in the past 24 hours while the strength of the US dollar alternately moves higher and lower amid the trading session yesterday. Moreover, this helped the eurodollar pair to go nearer the 1.19 level and continues to trade during the first part of the day on Friday.

The headlines on Thursday was mainly about the American dollar along with its tax reform bill which continues to undergo the Senate. While President Donald Trump and his team remain confident that the bill will be approved, the delayed process has placed pressure on the USD. It is expected that the proposed law will be enacted in the middle day of the week and because of different issues, the approval was delayed. Since we are currently on the last day of the week, the bill is not yet approved, however, it is expected to be passed today.

The ratification of the tax reform could possibly provide a limited and short-term increase to the greens but the underlying strength of the single European currency is clearly apparent for everyone to notice. As the tax reform bill is also priced into the markets, there is no any significant run from the USD regarding the bill enactment. It is still unclear if the euro will keep on gaining strength and reach the 1.20 level which could possibly the next target of the bulls

Ultimately, there are no major economic releases from the United States or the European region for this day, since the tax reform is projected to rule over the present day. The other main focus is the decision of the euro bulls whether to continue pushing the euro higher.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 4, 2017

The euro paired against the U.S. dollar declined since the dollar is starting to strengthen in the past day. The dollar was the highlight in the past week. This will be applicable for the data which will be released from the U.S. due to political issues.

Tax reform will be pushed through by the Senate which would be beneficial for the greenback. The dollar will continue to climb higher as long as the process goes on accordingly. This is what has been happening since Friday. On the other hand, the issue concerning Flynn adds more pressure to the dollar which will put it in a negative stand.

These changes will most likely be the highlight in the news when it comes to the dollar and focuses the week. The dollar will move steadily during the short-term as the end of the week approaches. The rate hike is also anticipated to push through from the Fed for this month. Even though the dollar will rally for a brief period of time, these factors placed the dollars at a good bidding.

There will be no major news from the eurozone or the U.S. for today. However, the dollar will remain strong for the day because of the reasons mentioned above. This keeps the euro under pressure that could result in consolidation and ranges around the level of 1.19 during the day.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 6, 2017

The pound dollar pair resumed declining as the greenbacks remain unchanged. The market is generally preferred a wait-and-see mode since this last month of the year. However, the case of the British pound would likely show higher volatility due to the emergence of political turmoil within and over the United Kingdom. This further caused the GBP to weaken which was seen in the past couple of days.

During the previous entire week, the sterling is crowned to be the strongest currency among its rivals because of the agreement prospect concluded in the Brexit negotiations that helped the bid to keep under the British currency. Moreover, the pound climbs higher to the 1.35 mark and seems that the Cable pair plans to ascend to the 1.38 level upon the release of the contract details within this week or the next. There are expectations that everyone will end the year with satisfaction after the details were announced.

Nevertheless, the opposition of the DUP party towards the Irish borders interrupted the deal that erased hopes for the current week. This deterred the plans of UK Prime Minister Theresa May that delayed her domestic and international plans. It may also imply a tough decision to conduct any deal in the short-term for this apparently put pressure on the pound, while the pair slumped again to the 1.34 mark amid the current trading course.


Ultimately, there are no major economic releases from Britain as the spotlight is turned to the USD and the ADP employment report scheduled later today. On the other hand, UK services PMI data showed some weakness yesterday that further contributed pressure on the GBP. In case that the ADP figures came in positive, then the pair is expected to soften in the near-term.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: December 6, 2017

The European currency edged downwards while the yields declined and the American dollar was able to conduct further progress. This happened after the release of a weaker than anticipated result of the European Retail Sales data. Moreover, the Services PMI in the euro region had increased as the US trade deficit expanded that could lessen the overall growth in the U.S. economy.

The eurodollar pair descended during the trading session on Tuesday and fell near the support at 1.1866 level around the 10-day moving average. The current support highlighted the 1.1757 mark beside the 50-day moving average. Further support lies at 1.1630 near the ascending trend line. Additionally, the momentum became negative and at the same time, the MACD histogram formed a crossover sell signal. The moving average convergence divergence index prints in the red, showing a descending sloping trajectory that moves to a lower exchange rate.
