Euro Forecast: EUR/USD Gains Facing Russian and USD Month End Risks

EUR/USD SHORT TERM GAINS LIMITED AMID RUSSIAN RISKS AND POTENTIAL USD MONTH END DEMAND

Thus far a relatively sanguine response in the FX space to the first round of sanctions on Russia. That said, in the short term, market sentiment will continue to change on a whim from headline to headline, staying agile is the prudent approach in this current environment. As I mentioned in yesterday’s note, I remain a longer term bull on the Euro, which can also be expressed via EUR/GBP. EUR/USD continues to hold onto the 1.13 handle with the recent break below failing to inspire in much the way of a follow through. Now while this may be encouraging for Euro bulls, the current geopolitical risks suggest that the currency is not out of the woods yet. Not to mention we are also approaching month-end rebalancing, which may well see similar price action that we saw at the end of last month. So far the S&P 500 is down 4.6% MTD and as the chart below highlights, when the index reports MTD losses of at least 3%, the USD picks up in the last few days of the month, before paring the entirety of the move in the first week of the new month.

BANK OF ENGLAND TO STICK WITH MODEST STEP BY STEP HIKING APPROACH

As noted above, a way to express a bullish Euro view can via EUR/GBP. Over the last 24hrs there has been a pick up in commentary from the Bank of England. The most notable comments from BoE’s Ramsden, who voted to hike the Bank rate by 50bps at the most recent meeting. The rate setter highlighted that should the economy develop in line with the February MPR forecast, then some “modest” tightening in monetary policy is likely to be appropriate in the coming months. This somewhat signals that the Bank will continue to take a step by step approach with 25bps increments. What’s more, with only the labour market report to be released before the March decision, I continue to remain in the 25bps hike camp.

    • Corn Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Function - Trend  Mode - Trend Structure - Expected Impulse wave for (3) Position - Wave 4 of (3) Direction - Wave 5 of (3) Details - Wave 4 appears to be close to completion. Wave 5 down is expected to follow to complete wave (3). The current price action of Corn indicates a continuation of the bearish sequence that began in April 2022. Trading around the lows of October 2020, the long-term outlook suggests that the decline is part of a larger bearish cycle originating from April 2022. Given this context, selling on rebounds appears to be a prudent strategy.   Daily Chart Analysis On the daily chart, Corn exhibits a clear bearish impulse wave pattern starting from the peak of April 2022 at 824. The first two waves, (I) and (II), concluded in July 2022 and October 2022, respectively. Currently, wave (III) is in progress from the October 2022 high. Within this structure, wave (2) of 3 (circled) of III has completed, indicating that there is still considerable downside potential. Wave (3) commenced at 477'2 and is developing into a bearish impulse wave. According to Fibonacci projections, this wave could reach 345 or lower.   H4 Chart Analysis The H4 chart provides a closer look at the sub-waves of wave (3). It appears that Corn has completed an extended move for wave 3 of (3). The current rebound represents wave 4, which has already touched the 23.6% retracement level of wave 3 at 409 and could potentially continue higher to the 38.2% retracement level at 420. Once this corrective structure completes, the commodity is expected to resume its downward movement in wave 5 of (3).     Summary In summary, the Elliott Wave analysis for Corn suggests a bearish outlook both in the long term and short term. Key levels to watch include the support at 345 and resistance at 420. The analysis indicates that wave (III) is still unfolding, with wave 3 of (III) likely to push prices further down. Traders should consider selling opportunities during corrective bounces, particularly around the 420 level, as the overall trend remains bearish. By monitoring wave structures and key price levels, traders can anticipate future movements in the Corn market and make informed decisions to capitalize on the prevailing downtrend.

    • Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart, Euro Stoxx 50 Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Orange wave 4 POSITION: Navy blue wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES: Orange wave 5 DETAILS: Orange wave 4 remains in play as a sideways movement. Wave Cancel invalid level: 4618 The Euro Stoxx 50 Elliott Wave Analysis on the day chart indicates that the market is currently in a counter-trend phase. This phase is characterized by a corrective mode, suggesting a temporary pause or reversal in the prevailing trend. The specific wave structure being analyzed is orange wave 4, positioned within navy blue wave 3. This means the market is in the fourth wave of a larger wave sequence, typically involving consolidation or a corrective movement before the final leg of the trend. The analysis suggests that the next higher degree direction is orange wave 5. This indicates that after the completion of the current corrective phase (orange wave 4), the market is expected to transition into orange wave 5, resuming the primary trend direction and likely leading to further price increases. Detailed observations indicate that orange wave 4 is still developing and is unfolding in a sideways pattern. This implies the market is currently in a consolidation phase with limited directional movement, characteristic of a corrective wave that moves sideways rather than trending strongly in one direction. A crucial aspect of this analysis is the wave cancellation invalid level, set at 4618. This level serves as a critical threshold for validating the current wave structure. If the market price falls below this point, it would invalidate the current wave analysis, indicating that the expected wave pattern is no longer valid and would require reassessment. In summary, the Euro Stoxx 50 day chart analysis shows the market in a corrective counter-trend phase within orange wave 4, positioned in navy blue wave 3. The market is currently consolidating sideways, and after this phase completes, it is expected to transition into orange wave 5, resuming the primary trend direction. The wave cancel invalid level is 4618, serving as a critical validation point for the current wave analysis.   Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Weekly Chart, Euro Stoxx 50 Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Orange wave 4 POSITION: Navy blue wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES: Orange wave 5 DETAILS: Orange wave 4 is still unfolding as a sideways movement. Wave Cancel invalid level: 4618 The Euro Stoxx 50 Elliott Wave Analysis on the weekly chart shows that the market is currently in a counter-trend phase. This phase is classified as corrective, indicating a temporary pause or reversal within a larger trend. The specific wave structure under analysis is orange wave 4, positioned within navy blue wave 3. This positioning suggests the market is in the fourth wave of a larger wave sequence, typically involving a corrective or consolidative movement. The analysis predicts that the next higher degree direction will be orange wave 5. This suggests that after the completion of the current corrective phase (orange wave 4), the market is expected to transition into orange wave 5, resuming the main trend and potentially leading to further upward movement in prices. A key detail in the analysis is that orange wave 4 is still in progress, manifesting as a sideways movement. This sideways movement indicates that the market is in a consolidation phase, with limited directional momentum, characteristic of a corrective wave that does not strongly trend in either direction but instead moves in a horizontal pattern. An important aspect to note is the wave cancel invalid level, set at 4618. This level is crucial as it serves as a validation point for the current wave structure. If the market price drops below this level, it would invalidate the current wave analysis, signaling that the expected wave pattern is no longer applicable and that the analysis would need revision. In summary, the Euro Stoxx 50 weekly chart analysis indicates the market is in a corrective counter-trend phase within orange wave 4, situated in navy blue wave 3. The market is consolidating sideways, and upon completion of this phase, it is expected to move into orange wave 5, resuming the primary trend direction. The wave cancel invalid level is 4618, serving as a critical threshold for validating the current wave analysis.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
