Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: EUR/USD Proving Tricky

The big news overnight in the FX markets was the decision by the PBoC to devalue the CNY. This not surprisingly prompted a fairly immediate dollar rally across the board. USD strength was short-lived in the case of EUR/USD, however, as the pair made back all its PBoC inspired losses by the beginning of European trading (purportedly on the back of a large unwind of short EUR/CNH positions). The loss of downside momentum in EUR/USD over the past few days in the face of some fairly positive USD news clearly raises the risk for a deeper upside correction in the pair. The 50-day moving average around 1.1100 remains critical in this regard as it has so successfully repelled rally attempts over the past month. Any traction above this level would be a pretty clear bullish change in behavior. Failure around this level followed by a break of 1.0950 likely paves the way for a renewed assault on the critical downside pivot at 1.0800.
