EUR/USD Carves Narrowing Range as ECB Buys Time- NFP in Focus

EUR/USD Carves Narrowing Range as ECB Buys Time- NFP in Focus

2014-10-02 16:10:00
David Song, Strategist

Talking Points:

- EUR/USD Holds Weekly Range as ECB Offers Limited Details Surrounding Non-Standard Measures.

- USD/JPY Vulnerable to Larger Correction Amid Bearish RSI Break.

- USDOLLAR Threatens Ascending Channel Formation as Bullish Momentum Wanes.

  • EUR/USD carving narrowing range as European Central Bank (ECB) keeps benchmark interest rate at 0.05% while providing limited details surrounding the asset-back securities (ABS) and covered-bond purchase program.
  • Could be seen as an attempt from the ECB to buy time as President Mario Draghi wants to see the take up of the second targeted long-term refinancing operation (T-LTRO).
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) continues to reflect net-long positioning in EUR/USD as the ratio stands at +1.22, but may continue to serve as a contrarian indicator as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains the bullish momentum.


  • USD/JPY risks a more meaningful correction as the RSI breaks down from the bullish trend; long-term outlook remains bullish amid the deviation in the policy outlook.
  • Bank of Japan (BoJ) policy meeting on October 7 may serve as a fundamental catalyst to trigger a larger pullback should Governor Haruhiko Kuroda refrain from further expanding the asset-purchase program.
  • Will continue to watch the downside targets, with former resistance coming in around 105.20 (50.0% expansion) to 105.35 (50.0% retracement).
