EUR/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • EUR/USD pares decline to 1.1726 even as European Court of Justice rules in favor of the European Central Bank’s (ECB) Outright Monetary Transactions (OMT) program; close above 1.1740 may continue to signal range-bound prices ahead of the January 22 meeting.
  • With growing expectations of seeing the ECB announce its quantitative easing (QE) program next week, may see a short-squeeze in EUR/USD should the Governing Council fail to act.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) show retail crowd remains net-long EUR/USD, with the ratio currently standing at +1.18.


USD/JPY Daily Chart
  • USD/JPY extends decline as risk appetite continues to wane; downside targets remain favored as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains the bearish momentum.
  • Need to see a close below 116.10 (61.8% retracement) for conviction/confirmation for a larger pullback in USD/JPY.
  • May see a test of the December lows (115.55) followed by 114.55 (78.6% retracement) should the Japanese Yen continue to benefit from the drop in market sentiment.
