EURUSD Price, Chart and Analysis:

  • Will the recent EURUSD 1.1200 ‘floor’ hold?
  • ECB likely to prime markets for additional monetary loosening on Thursday.

ECB and Data Releases Will Steer the Euro

A quiet start to the week with little data for traders to use, but the Euro this week could see recent trading ranges broken as the ECB primes itself to boost the ailing Euro-Zone economy.Along with the latest ECB monetary policy meeting on Thursday, where future rate cuts are expected to be discussed, PMI data on Wednesday is expected to show that the economy remains in a parlous state, especially the manufacturing sector. The Euro-Zone manufacturing PMI is expected to remain unchanged at 47.6 in July. A reading under 50 represents contraction compared to the previous month.

EURUSD has been trading in a triangular set-up since mid-June and the price is now heading towards a breakout as trendlines converge. To the downside, recent lows between 1.1203 and 1.1182 may be vulnerable to any sell-off, leaving the way clear to a fall back towards 1.1107, a low last seen in May 2017. The current downtrend suggests resistance starts around 1.1240, while the 20- and 50-day moving averages are situated either side of 1.1255 and may stall any further upside.
