USDOLLAR Triangle Lingers as EUR/USD Breaks its ST Uptrend
- See the May forex seasonality report.
The April US jobs report on Friday was a bit of a mixed report - good, not great, and certainly with some lacking areas - but it might just be good enough to stem the bleeding in the US Dollar's selloff that's materialized since mid-April. A return to jobs growth north of +200K could help alleviate immediate concerns that the US economy is backsliding into a recession, allowing traders to refocus their energies elsewhere. In the short-term, this includes Greece once more, as the Eurogroup meets today to hammer out a statement of progress and framework for capital injections/financing going forward. It's tough to believe, but the extension deal reached in February runs out in three-weeks, bringing back the dreaded 'Grexit' conversation to the table.
See the above video for technical considerations in EURUSD, EURJPY, and the USDOLLAR Index.
