EUR/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • EUR/USD may mount a near-term recovery going into June as the pair appears to be breaking out of the downward trending channel from earlier this month, while the European Central Bank (ECB) is widely anticipated to retain its current policy at the next policy meeting on June 2.
  • With the Euro-Zone’s Core Consumer Price Index (CPI) projected to increase an annualized 0.8% following the 0.7% expansion in April, sticky price growth in the monetary union may spark a bullish reaction in the single-currency as market participants scale back bets for additional ECB support.
  • May see the bullish trend carried over from the end of 2015 reassert itself over the coming days amid the failure to break/close below near-term support around 1.1090 (50% retracement) to 1.1110 (50% retracement), with the first topside hurdle coming in around 1.1210 (61.8% retracement) to 1.1230 (38.2% retracement) followed by 1.1270 (38.2% retracement) to 1.1290 (23.6% retracement).
DailyFX SSI
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows the retail FX crowd has flipped net-long EUR/USD going into the end of May after being net-short since early March.

EUR/USD to Mount Near-Term Recover on Sticky CPI, Wait-and-See ECBUSDOLLAR Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Even though the preliminary U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report fell short of market expectations, the USDOLLAR pares the decline from earlier this week as the core Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE), the Fed’s preferred gauge for inflation, expands an annualized 2.1% to mark the highest reading since the first three-months of 2012.
  • With Fed Chair Janet Yellen scheduled to speak later this afternoon, fresh comments from the central bank head may spark increased volatility going into the holiday weekend as Fed Funds Futures continue to price less than 40% probability for a June rate-hike; will also keep a close eye on the news wires in the week ahead as St Louis Fed President James Bullard, Fed Governor Jerome Powell, Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans and Fed Governor Lael Brainard scheduled to speak over the days ahead.
  • Another unsuccessful attempt to break/close above the Fibonacci overlap around 11,951 (38.2% expansion) to 11,965 (23.6% retracement) may keep the USDOLLAR within a narrow range, with the first downside region of interest coming in around 11,898 (50% retracement), followed by 11,836 (61.8% retracement) to 11,843 (38.2% retracement).
