EUR/USD Continues to Carve Lower-Highs; EUR/NZD Top in Place?

David Song, Strategist

Talking Points:

- USDOLLAR Falls Back From Fresh Monthly High as Retain Sales Disappoints

DJ-FXCM Dollar Index







  • Slips to fresh monthly low of 1.6698 as U.K. Average Weekly Earnings contracts for first time since 2009 while Bank of England (BoE) sees first rate hike in February 2015.
  • Even though the BoE remains on course to normalize monetary policy, seems as though the central bank is in no rush to raise the benchmark interest rate as they cut the wage growth forecast & highlights greater uncertainty surrounding the fundamental outlook..
  • Nevertheless, DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long on GBP/USD, with the ratio standing at +2.18.


  • Despite the oversold reading in the Relative Strength Index (RSI), will retain a constructive view for NZD/USD as long as it holds above the June low (0.8401).
  • New Zealand 2Q Retail Sales may generate a larger rebound as household spending is expected to increased 1.0% versus 0.7% during the first three-months of 2014.
  • According to Credit Suisse Overnight Index Swaps, market participants still see the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) raising borrowing costs by at least 40bp over the next 12-months.
