  • This week's ECB meeting minutes should be interesting to watch especially in light of the US-China #tradewar. Stay tuned for more in-depth analysis.
  • You also have to take into account the demographic factor whereby the wide-spread graying of Europe (and soon the US) will further sap inflationary pressure. As people age, they spend less of their income because unlike their younger years, they aren't trying to accumulate stuff.
  • Europeans are going to have to find a way to reconcile that because cutting rates deeper into negative territory I don't think is going to give the same stimulative effect as when rates were higher. Plus they've already got QE going on indefinitely.
  • "Policymakers therefore have to find a way to reconcile maintaining the institutional integrity of the growth and stability pact – in order to prevent states from flirting with sovereign debt crises and wrecking the Eurozone – and letting members exercise greater fiscal autonomy"

DailyFX Trading Guides and Forecasts

-GBPUSD continues to trade above long term support (see here) but price needs to take out 1.4515 in order to eliminate the wet blanket behavior. A push through the noted level would complete a 2+ month head and shoulders bottom and target longer term downtrend resistance near 1.50. Until then, downside continuation into the low 1.30s cannot be dismissed.
