Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Looks as though EUR/USD will continue to close above 1.1185 (23.6% expansion) to 1.1210 (61.8% retracement), but will retain the approach to ‘sell-bounces’ in EUR/USD as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains the bearish momentum.
  • Updated forecasts along with the forward-guidance for monetary policy will be largely in focus as the European Central Bank (ECB) prepares to launch its quantitative-easing (QE) program.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd has flipped back to net-short EUR/USD going into the end of the month, with the ratio currently holding at -1.02.

USDOLLAR Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar outlook remains bullish going into March as it retains the upward trending channel carried over from July 2014; topside targets favored following break of bearish RSI momentum.
  • The stronger-than-expected 4Q GDP print may fuel expectations for a very robust Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report, but we will keep a close eye on the wage growth figures especially as the Fed remains in no rush to normalize monetary policy.
  • Still favor the approach to ‘buy dips’ in USDOLLAR, with the next topside target coming in around 11,901 (78.6% expansion).
