EUR/JPY, Coronavirus, Eurozone Consumer Confidence Data – Talking Points

  • Euro may fall if consumer confidence data spooks markets
  • Eurozone facing deep recession as coronavirus spreads
  • EUR/USD broke key support, may resume prior downtrend

US equity futures pointed higher heading into Asia’s Monday trading session after reports showed coronavirus deaths from countries with the highest infected rates slowed. Meanwhile, Brent plunged over nine percent after tensions between Russia and Saudi Arabia resurfaced over the weekend. US President Donald Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force held a press conference but markets appeared unphased by the content of it.

Euro May Fall on Eurozone Consumer Confidence Data

The Euro may face selling pressure if Eurozone Sentix Consumer Confidence data for April underwhelms and reinforces concern about a deep regional recession.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis

EUR/USD is approaching a floor at 1.0783 after it broke below a key support range that may be the catalyst behind a resumption of the prior steep downtrend. A compression zone between that floor and potential resistance (labelled as “Downtrend Alpha”) may be forming and could accelerate a selloff if it caps EUR/USD’s gains.
