GBP/USD

GBP/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • GBP/USD extends the decline from the previous month as the Purchasing Manager Indices (PMI) figures coming out of the U.K. highlight s slowing recovery and raises the risk for the Bank of England (BoE) to further delay its normalization cycle.
  • Even though the BoE remains on course to normalize monetary policy, GBP/USD may continue to give back the rebound from back in April (1.4565) as the pair carves a downward trending channel, while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) preserves the bearish formation from back in May.
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long GBP/USD since November 19, but the ratio appears to be working its way back towards recent extremes as it climbs to +1.65, with 62% of traders now long.

EUR/USD

EUR/USD Daily Chart
  • The long-term outlook for EUR/USD remains tilted to the downside as the European Central Bank (ECB) stands ready & willing to further embark on its easing cycle, with the April (1.0519) and March low (1.0461) largely in focus.
  • Despite the dovish pledge by ECB President Mario Draghi, the euro-dollar stands at risk of a short-squeeze as market participants look for an adjustment to the quantitative easing (QE) program accompanied by another reduction in the central bank’s deposit-rate.
  • With market participants heavily looking for a major announcement from the ECB, a disappointing interest rate decision may spur a move back towards former-support zones, with the key region of interest coming in around 1.1090 (50% retracement).

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • USDOLLAR pares the decline from earlier this week as ADP Employment expands 217K in November and boosts expectations for a strong Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report; may see the greenback coil for a move higher amid speculation for a December Fed rate-hike.
  • Beyond the Fed’s Beige Book, Chair Janet Yellen’s testimony before the congressional Joint Economic Committee may boost the appeal of the greenback should the central bank head continue to endorse a 2015 liftoff ahead of the December 16 interest rate decision.
  • Topside targets remain in focus for the USDOLLAR, with the Fibonacci overlap around12,273 (161.8% expansion) to 12,296 (100% expansion) up next.
