EUR/USD

EUR/USD Vulnerable to Hawkish Fed- Outlook May Hinge on T-LTRO
  • May hold tight range as market participants weigh the take-up of the European Central Bank’s (ECB) Targeted Long-Term Refinancing Operations (T-LTRO); seeing expectations range from EUR 100B to EUR 150B.
  • The outcome of the T-LTRO may highlight the scope & magnitude of the ECB’s asset-back securities (ABS) purchase program as the central bank’ balance sheet is expected to near the early 2012 highs.
  • Even though the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) continues to narrow, with the ratio continues to show net-long positioning as it stands at +1.14.

GBP/USD

EUR/USD Vulnerable to Hawkish Fed- Outlook May Hinge on T-LTRO
  • GBP/USD may fill the gap on a close-basis as U.K. Jobless Claims slips 37.2K, while Average Weekly Earnings including Bonus climbs 0.6%.
  • Nevertheless, it seems as though Bank of England (BoE) will retain its current policy as the meeting minutes continue to show 7-2 split, but the GBP/USD looks poised for a larger rebound as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) comes off of oversold territory.
  • Will watch former support zones for new resistance, with the first region of interest coming in around 1.6410 (61.8% retracement) to 1.6440 (23.6% expansion).

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index could be marking a bullish inside day (Harami) ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting as market participants look for a more hawkish twist to the forward-guidance for monetary policy.
  • If Fed disappoints & we get more of the same, batch of dovish commentary may serve as the fundamental catalyst to spur a larger correction in the USDOLLAR.
  • With that said, still need to see the RSI fall back from overbought territory & break the bullish momentum for confirmation & conviction for a near-term decline in the greenback.
