EUR/USD

EUR/USD Vulnerable on Slowing Inflation- U.S. 2Q GDP Tops Forecast
  • May fail to close the opening weekly gap ahead of the European Central Bank (ECB) on September 4 as Relative Strength Index (RSI) holds in oversold territory.
  • May see growing speculation for additional monetary support should the Euro-Zone Consumer Price Index (CPI) highlight a greater threat for deflation.

USD/CAD

EUR/USD Vulnerable on Slowing Inflation- U.S. 2Q GDP Tops Forecast
  • Looks as though the USD/CAD will hold above 1.0820 (61.8% retracement) to 1.0830 (61.8% retracement) ahead of Canada’s 2Q GDP, which is expected to show a 2.7% rise in the growth rate.
  • May see the Bank of Canada (BoC) come under increased pressure to adopt a more hawkish tone for monetary policy at the September 3 meeting should the 2Q GDP report raise the outlook for growth and inflation.
  • Next downside objective comes in around 1.0780 (38.2% expansion) to 1.0790 (50.0% retracement).

USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index rebounds from a fresh weekly low of 10,616 as the advance 2Q GDP report shows an unexpected upward to 4.2% from an initial forecast of 4.0%, marking the fastest pace of growth since 3Q 2013.
  • Core Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) continues to highlight sticky inflation as it shows the highest reading since 1Q 2012; will it be enough to shift the Fed’s forward-guidance for monetary policy?
  • Still waiting for a break of the bullish RSI momentum to favor a larger USDOLLAR correction; former resistance around 10,555 (50.0% retracement) to 10,561 (100% expansion) remains in focus.
