EUR/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • With EUR/USD climbing to a fresh monthly high of 1.1363, the near-term series of higher highs & lows may spur a further advance in the exchange rate, which may open up the broad range from 2015.
  • With the Euro-Zone’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) anticipated to show an uptick in the core rate of inflation, the single-currency may show a bullish reaction to the report as limit’s the European Central Bank’s (ECB) scope to implement more non-standard measures in 2016.
  • Will continue to watch the topside targets for EUR/USD as the pair holds above 1.1090 (50% retracement) to 1.1110 (50% retracement), with the next region of interest coming in around 1.1420 (23.6% retracement) to 1.1460 (78.6 retracement).

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • The near-term series of lower highs & lows accompanied by the bearish formation in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) may lead to a further decline in the USDOLLAR as the dovish comments from Fed Chair Janet Yellen drags on interest-rate expectations.
  • Despite the 200K print for ADP Employment, central bank rhetoric may continue to drive market volatility as New York Fed President William Dudley, a permanent voting-member on the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is scheduled to speak ahead of the highly anticipated U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report.
  • Downside targets remain in focus for the USDOLLAR with a close below 11,898 (50% retracement) raising the risk for a more meaningful run at 11,826 (61.8% expansion) to 11,843 (38.2% retracement).
