Talking Points

EUR/USD Daily

EUR/USD Daily Chart

Technical Outlook: Euro reversed off parallel resistance extending off the December high this week- Note that the slope of this trendline originates from the broader descending median-line formation extending off the 2016 highs. A hold in daily RSI sub-60 also highlights the threat to the advance off the monthly lows.

EUR/USD 120min

EUR/USD 120min Chart

Notes: A closer look at price action shows Euro trading within the confines of a near-term ascending pitchfork formation extending off the December lows. Note that the break below the median-line / weekly open shifts the near-term focus lower with the decline already taking out initial targets at 1.0672. Subsequent support objectives at the 50-line (currently ~1.0650), the 38.2% retracement at 1.0609 & the lower parallel at 1.0580- area of interest for possible exhaustion / long-entries.

Consensus estimates are calling for a 2.2% q/q clip for US 4Q GDP, down from a previous read of 3.5%. Even though tomorrow’s release is expected to highlight a slowdown in both growth & inflation, the data is unlikely to move the needle as it pertains to monetary policy with Fed Fund Futures still pricing in a 74% probably for an interest rate hike in June. That said, from a trading standpoint, heading into the release I would be looking to fade strength while below the monthly / yearly high-day close at 1.0730 with a move lower targeting downside objectives into structural support.

EUR/USD Eyes 1.0580 Support Ahead of 4Q GDP
  • A summary of the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows traders are short EUR/USD - the ratio stands at -1.22 (45% of traders are long)- weak bullish reading
  • Long positions are 21.2% higher than yesterday and 10.8% above levels seen last week
  • Short positions are 14.4% lower than yesterday but 12.9% above levels seen last week
  • Open interest is 1.3% lower than yesterday but remains 12.6% above its monthly average
  • The current dynamic of building long interest highlights the risk of further near-term weakness in price as the ratio continues to narrow from recent extremes of -1.77. Look for a flip to net long in the coming days to suggest that a more significant reversal is underway.
