EUR/USD to Eye 1.3330 Support on Strong U. of Michigan Survey

EUR/USD to Eye 1.3330 Support on Strong U. of Michigan Survey

David Song, Strategist

- U. of Michigan Confidence Survey to Rebound Following Unexpected Decline in July.

- Expected to Hold Above 80.0 for Ninth Consecutive Month.

Trading the News: U. of Michigan Confidence

A rebound in the U. of Michigan Confidence survey may generate a bullish reaction in the U.S. dollar (bearish EUR/USD) as it raises the outlook for growth and inflation.

What’s Expected:

Why Is This Event Important:

A pickup in household sentiment may spur a larger dissent within the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) as central bank officials look for a stronger recovery in the second-half of the year, and the Fed may show a greater willingness to normalize monetary policy sooner rather than later as the committee turns increasingly confident in achieving the dual mandate for full-employment & price stability.

Higher wage growth paired with marked rebound in 2Q GDP may prop up household confidence, and an upbeat U. of Michigan print may heighten the bullish sentiment surrounding the U.S. dollar as the Fed looks to move away from its easing cycle later this year.

However, the slowdown in private sector credit along with the recent weakness in household consumption may warn of a further decline in consumer sentiment, and another unexpected decline in the confidence survey may trigger a near-term correction in the greenback as it drags on interest rate expectations.

July 2014 U. of Michigan Confidence Survey

EUR/USD Chart

The U. of Michigan Confidence survey unexpectedly weakened in July, with the index slipping to 81.3 from 82.5 the month prior, while 12-month inflation expectations climbed to an annualized 3.3% from 3.1% in June. Nevertheless, the greenback struggled to hold its ground following the dismal confidence report, with the EURUSD trading back above the 1.3500 handle, and the reserve currency continued to trade heavy throughout the North American trade as the pair ended the day at 1.3521.
