Forex: EUR/USD, USD/JPY Bear Waves Need an S&P 500 Collapse

Forex: EUR/USD, USD/JPY Bear Waves Need an S&P 500 Collapse

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

EURUSD marked a meaningful technical break this past session having slipped below a nine-month trendline carrying through to 1.2800. Yet, a breakdown does not guarantee follow through. And, given the move that the USDollar has forged over the past few weeks; further escalation of aggressive short-term dollar drives for pairs like EURUSD, GBPUSD and AUDUSD or forcing tantalizing reversals for USDJPY and other yen crosses needs a kinetic development. Committed risk aversion is that spark. However, with the S&P 500 - a benchmark for risk appetite - matching its longest rally in nearly four years, that scenario is not easily accomplished. We discuss the technical and fundamental trade considerations behind the EURUSD and many other pairs in today's video.

Market conditions change, and our strategy should reflect those changes. We have coded the DailyFX-Plus strategies for Breakout, Range and Momentum to adapt to these market shifts.
