EURUSD Price: Renewed Downward Pressure Hints at New Lows

EURUSD Price: Renewed Downward Pressure Hints at New Lows

EURUSD and German Growth:

  • The German economy will grow by just 1% in 2019.
  • The EURUSD 1.1300 level continues to hold but for how long?

Q1 2019 Trading Forecasts including USD and EUR.

EURUSD Likely to Break Below 1.1300 and Test sub-1.1200

The constant flow of bad economic news in the Euro-Zone has yet to fully impact the single-currency which currently trades around 1.1320. Respected German newspaper Handelsblatt ran a sourced report late Thursday which said that the German government had downgraded growth to just 1% in 2019, down from a prior 1.8% projection just a few months ago. This figure coincides with a report out just over a week ago from the German business body BDI which said that a disorderly Brexit would hammer German growth.

Sentiment reports out this week have also highlighted the current weakness in the Euro-Zone and more may be to follow today when German IFO data is released. Expectations are for further falls and more negative news for the Euro-Zone’s economic engine. The ECB professional forecasters also release their latest views on Friday morning.

EURUSD Price Likely to Face Renewed ECB Headwinds.

EURUSD Price: Renewed Downward Pressure Hints at New Lows

IG Client Sentiment currently gives us a mixed trading bias despite retail data showing traders long EURUSD by a ratio of 1.84 to 1 (64.7%). Retail traders have remained net-long of EURUSD since January 10 when the pair traded near 1.1508.

EURUSD continues to press the 1.1300 level without a decisive move lower. Any time the pair break below here they rebound, although these bounce-backs are looking weaker. A clean break below 1.1300 opens the way to the 1.1210-1.1220 area seen back in November before the important 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the January 2017 – February 2018 move comes into play at 1.1186. If things turn very bearish for the pair, the January low around 1.0340 would retrace the whole rally.
