Bearish EUR/USD Outlook Favored Below Former Support on ECB Policy

Bearish EUR/USD Outlook Favored Below Former Support on ECB Policy

David Song, Strategist

Talking Points:

- USDOLLAR Eyes Former Support; Non-Farm Payrolls to Climb 219K

- EUR/USD Coming Up Against Former Support Ahead of ECB Rate Decision

- USD/CAD Fails to Break Out Despite Weak Canada 1Q GDP; BoC Meeting in Focus

The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) may continue to work its way back towards former resistance (10,470) ahead of the highly anticipated Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report as the bearish break on the Relative Strength Index (RSI) gathers pace.

Indeed, the recent weakness in the dollar may turn into a larger decline as the reserve currency carves a lower-high in May, but a rate cut by the European Central Bank (ECB) paired with another 200+K rise in U.S. NFPs may spur a material shift in the technical outlook should the key event risks deviate from market expectations.

With that said, we will retain a prudent approach going into June as we’ll be watch the monthly opening range take shape, and we may see a sharp rise in market volatility throughout the summer months amid the prospects for a more material shift in the policy outlook.
