EUR/USD

EUR/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • With EUR/USD extending the rebound from earlier this week, will keep a close eye on former support around 1.0910 (38.2% expansion) for new resistance; the pair remains at risk of giving back the advance following the European Central Bank’s (ECB) December interest rate decision as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) fails to preserve the bullish formation from the end of November.
  • Despite the mixed data prints coming out of the euro-area, the Governing Council may largely endorse a wait-and-see approach at the next policy meeting on January 21 as the non-standard measures work their way through the real economy.
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd flipped net-short EUR/USD on January 6, with the ratio slipping to -1.33 as 43% of traders are now long.

USD/CAD

USD/CAD Daily Chart
  • Even though USD/CAD climbs to a fresh weekly high of 1.4168 ahead of Canada’s Employment report, a bearish RSI divergence appears to be taking shape especially as the oscillator fails to retain the bullish formation from back in October.
  • With Canada anticipated to show a 10.0K rebound in job growth, a positive development may boost the appeal of the loonie as it encourages the Bank of Canada (BoC) to endorse a neutral tone for monetary policy as Governor Stephen Poloz turns upbeat towards the economy.
  • Next topside target stands at 1.4370 (100% expansion), with near-term support holding around 1.3780 (61.8% expansion).

EUR/USD Eyes 1.0900 Despite Mixed Euro-Zone DataUSDOLLAR Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Despite market expectations for another 200K expansion in U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP), the USDOLLAR may face choppy price action ahead of the key event risk as it holds within the previous day’s range; will keep a close eye on Average Hourly Earnings as the U.S. economy approaches ‘full-employment.’
  • However, the Fed Minutes suggests we may see a rift at the January 27 interest rate decision as central bank doves look for stronger inflation, and a dismal NFP report may drag on rate expectations as Chair Janet Yellen appears to be in no rush to further normalize monetary policy.
  • Bullish breakout may spur a larger run at the next topside targets around 12,273 (161.8% expansion) to 12,296 (100% expansion).
