EURO FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP

Last week’s NFP beat laid the foundation for Monday’s open lower for EUR/USD as markets look forward to U.S. inflation data as the next possible upside risk event for the dollar. Until then, the economic calendar is filled with Fed speeches which can provide some price fluctuation on the pair with an increasingly hawkish tone expected from many contributors.

From the European perspective, the Russian oil import ban from the EU is not helping the case for the Euro as growth forecasts continue to fade. Talks around a European recession and decelerating Chinese growth expectations have placed the dollar in top spot amongst major currencies, in conjunction with strong U.S. labor and inflationary data and an aggressive Federal Reserve, the dollar remains bid at least in the medium-term against the Euro.

Giving added impetus to dollar upside, the U.S. 10-year Treasury yield extends its climb higher leaving 2018 highs vulnerable.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

EUR/USD DAILY CHART

EURUSD daily chart

Chart prepared by Warren Venketas, IG

Technical analysis on the daily EUR/USD chart shows price action consolidating beneath the 1.0600 resistance zone. The catalyst for a break below support is likely to stem from a ‘hot’ U.S. CPI release but with oversold conditions on the Relative Strength Index (RSI) we may see marginal Euro strength to come before a continuation lower.

Resistance levels:

  • 1.0806
  • 20-day EMA (purple)
  • 1.0600

Support levels:

IG CLIENT SENTIMENT DATA POINTS TO SHORT-TERM HESITANCY

IGCS shows retail traders are currently LONG on EUR/USD, with 75% of traders currently holding long positions (as of this writing). At DailyFX we typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment however, due to recent changes in long and short positioning, we favor a cautious approach.

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
