GER30 Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Bearish Outside Day (Engulfing) raises the risk of seeing a larger correction in GER30 especially as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) struggles to retain the bullish momentum.
  • Nevertheless, may see risk sentiment track higher following the European Central Bank (ECB) interest rate decision should President Mario Draghi highlight a dovish forward-guidance for monetary policy.
  • Break & close below 11,261 (23.6% retracement) will favor a move into the Fibonacci overlap from 11,122 (100% expansion) to 11,156 (38.2% expansion).


GBP/USD Daily Chart
  • GBP/USD may continue to track sideways following the failed attempt to push back above former support, while the Bank of England (BoE) is widely expected to retain its current policy in March.
  • Will retain a flat bias for GBP/USD amid the string of closes above 1.5300 (23.6% retracement) to 1.5320 (78.6% retracement), but may see the British Pound outperform against its non-USD counterparts as a growing number of BoE officials prepare U.K. households and businesses for higher borrowing-costs.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long GBP/USD since February 26, with the ratio currently standing at +1.31.

GER30 Carves Outside Day, Threatens Bullish Momentum Ahead of ECBUSDOLLAR Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar may chop around in a larger range should it fail to close above 11,826 (61.8% expansion); still waiting for a break of the bearish RSI momentum to favor a larger advance.
  • Outcome of ADP Employment and the ISM Non-Manufacturing report may influence market expectations for Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) as participants now see employment increasing 235K in February.
  • Lack of momentum to hold/close above 11,826 may spur another test of the range support/February low (11,736).
