Euro, US Dollar and Italian Bond Yields Talking Points:
We have just released our Brand New Q4 Trading Forecasts including USD and EUR.
EURUSD – Bears Remain in Control
EURUSD continues to move lower on a combination of a resurgent US dollar – fueled by hawkish Fed talk – and a weak fundamental and technical Euro backdrop. And as the pair move lower, support levels are likely to creak under selling pressure. Italian government bond yields refuse to move lower with the closely watched 10-year currently trading with a yield of 3.35%, just 10 basis points below its recent multi-year high. The recently announced Italian budget will continue to worry the market, and depress the Euro, before Brussels gives its view on the proposal later in the month.
The daily EURUSD chart shows the pair falling back down to 50% Fibonacci support at 1.14480 before this year’s low, made on August 16, at 1.1301 comes into play with seemingly little between those levels to stem the fall. If selling accelerates, the important 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at 1.11870 becomes a longer-term target. The pair also trade below all three moving averages, a negative set-up, while retail sentiment is also negative.
