EUR/USD

EUR/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • EUR/USD looks poised to retain the range-bound price action ahead of the Eurogroup meeting as Greece struggles to secure a near-term resolution.
  • Need a break & close above/below the current range for conviction; long-term outlook remains bearish as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains the bearish momentum dating back to October 2013.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-short EUR/USD ahead of the meeting, but the ratio has come off of recent extremes as it currently holds at -1.52.

USD/JPY

USD/JPY Daily Chart
  • USD/JPY threatens the wedge/triangle formation as it ran up to a fresh monthly high of 119.61; need a close above 119.00-10 for conviction/confirmation for a bullish break.
  • Cautious on the move in USD/JPY as SPX500 preserves the range-bound price action & remains capped by 2064-2070.
  • Next topside target comes in around 119.60 (23.6% retracement) to 119.80 (100% expansion), but will keep a close eye on Japan’s 4Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report as market participants look for a meaningful rebound in economic activity.
