EURUSD May Struggle to Move Higher

The news that the Italian Five Star Movement and the Northern League are close to agreeing a new government will have been watched closely by Brussels as the populist movement in the Euro-Zone’s third-largest country gathers further momentum. A new government is likely to cut taxes and pension reforms and is also said to be looking at issuing a quasi-parallel currency, putting it at squarely at odds with the European Union. The Northern League leader Matteo Salvini in the past has said that Italy should break free from the EU’s austerity measures and ignore the bloc’s 3% budget deficit limit.

The single currency looks set to be capped in the short-term against the US dollar despite the greenback slipping back due to lower US Treasury yields. With the closely followed 10-year UST yield unable to make a clean break above 3%, the greenback has drifted lower in the last few trading sessions. Any EURUSD upside however is likely capped at the 200-day moving average around 1.20510 and a small gap on the May 1 candle between 1.20300 and 1.20600.
