EUR/USD

EUR/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • May only be a matter of time before EUR/USD breaks 1.20 as European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi sees a risk for deflation; fueling bets for quantitative easing at the January 22 meeting.
  • Downside break in Relative Strength Index (RSI) to favor a further decline in EUR/USD, with the next target coming in around 1.1960-70 (78.6% expansion).
  • May see stops get triggered on a move below 1.20 as the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long EUR/USD since December 16, with the ratio currently standing at +1.63.

USD/CAD

USD/CAD Daily Chart
  • Weak crude oil prices may continue to drive USD/CAD higher as Bank of Canada (BoC) Governor Stephen Poloz remains in no rush to further monetary policy.
  • As RSI comes up against overbought territory, a topside push should provide conviction/confirmation for a further advance in dollar-loonie.
  • Next topside objective for USD/CAD comes in around 1.1750-60 (100% expansion).

  • Nevertheless, long-term outlook for USDOLLAR remains bullish as growing number of Fed officials show a greater willingness to normalize monetary; will have to see how the 2015 rotation will impact interest rate expectations.
  • Despite the lack of momentum to clear 11,623 (100% expansion), the RSI may highlight another topside move in USDOLLAR as the oscillator threatens the bearish momentum & looks to push back into overbought territory.
