Q1 2019 Trading Forecasts including USD and EUR.

EURUSD Remains Structurally Weak

Euro-Zone headline inflation (y/y) is expected to fall to 1.6% from 1.9%in December, matching earlier expectations, while the core rate is expected unchanged at 1.0%, with lower energy costs keeping price pressures subdued. ECB President Mario Draghi recently said that growth across the single-block remained weak, adding that ‘a significant amount of monetary policy stimulus is still needed to support the further build-up of domestic price pressures and headline inflation developments over the medium term.'

EURUSD Price May Fall Further as Inflation Remains Low

A look at the EURUSD daily chart confirms this negative backdrop for the single-currency, with three lower highs/lower lows printed. The pair have also just slipped below both the 20-and 50-day moving average – a negative sign – and trade at levels last seen on January 4. Support below starts at 1.1345 but there is little in the way of a re-test of 1.1300. Below here, the recent 19-month low at 1.1215 comes into play before 1.1187, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the January 2017 – February 2018 move.
