EUR/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: ECB President Draghi Speech and 17 pips range price movement

2017-01-31 08:00 GMT | [EUR - ECB President Draghi Speaks]

[EUR - ECB President Draghi Speaks] = Speech to deliver opening remarks at a joint conference by the European Central Bank and the European Commission, in Frankfurt.

==========

From official report:

  • "First, let me say a few words on financial integration, which is a focal point for two of our panels today. Promoting European financial integration is – besides the primary objective of price stability – a key objective of the Eurosystem. It is essential for a well-functioning single currency. Indeed, you can see financial integration and the single currency as two sides of the same coin: one basic motivation for the single currency was to maximise the benefits of the single market for capital. Conversely, it was understood that integrated financial markets would be necessary for an effective single currency."

EUR/USD W1: bearish ranging within 1.08/1.03 levels (based on the article)

Weekly price is located below 100 SMA/200 SMA reversal levels in the bearish area of the chart for the ranging within 1.0873 resistance level and 1.0324 support level.

If the price breaks 1.0873 resistance to above on weekly close bar so the secondary rally will be started.
If the price breaks 1.0324 support level so the primary ebarish trend will be resumed.
if not so the price will be on bearish ranging within the levels.



"Last was the smallest non-holiday weekly range since September 2012. This week was an outside week (although didn’t close on the highs). The current dynamic is the exact opposite of what happened in September 2012. Price wise, EUR/USD is fighting against 1.0820/50, which was support in 2015 and 2016. It’s a big level but consider upside as long as above this week’s low due to the mentioned small range, outside week dynamic. If this week’s low is taken out then I’d still watch for support near 1.0462-1.0539 (2015 lows)."

EUR/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: ECB President Draghi Speech and 34 pips range price movement

2017-02-06 14:00 GMT | [EUR - ECB President Draghi Speaks]

[EUR - ECB President Draghi Speaks] = Speech on monetary policy before the European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee, in Brussels.

==========

From official report:

  • "Our monetary policy strategy prescribes that we should not react to individual data points and short-lived increases in inflation."
  • "We therefore continue to look through changes in (harmonized) inflation if we believe they do not durably affect the medium-term outlook for price stability."
  • "But support from our monetary policy measures is still needed if inflation rates are to converge towards our objective with sufficient confidence and in a sustained manner. The pickup in headline inflation in December and in January largely reflects sizeable upward base effects and recent increases in energy prices. So far underlying inflation pressures remain very subdued and are expected to pick up only gradually as we go on. This lack of momentum in underlying inflation reflects largely weak domestic cost pressures. The still significant degree of labour market slack and weak productivity developments are weighing down on wage growth."

Technical Intra-Day Targets for EUR/USD by United Overseas Bank (based on the article)

EUR/USD: ranging waiting for direction.

H4 price is located within 100 SMA/200 SMA reversal area and near and above 200 SMA in the ranging area of the chart: the price is testing 1.0655 support level to below for 1.0620 level as the nearest target for the bearish reversal. By the way, UOB is evaluating the trend for this pair as a neutral with 1.0700/1.0615 range:

"The ease of which the strong 1.0700 support was taken out came as a surprise (low has been 1.0653). EUR has likely made a short-term top at 1.0825/30 last week and the current pull-back from the high appears to have room to extend lower towards 1.0615, possibly extending to 1.0575. At this stage, a sustained move below 1.0575 seems unlikely. Resistance is at 1.0735 but only a move back above 1.0760 would indicate that the immediate downward pressure has eased."

RSI indicator is estimating the ranging trend to be continuing in the near future.  

  • If the price will break 1.0700 resistance level on close H4 bar so the primary bullish trend will be resumed.
  • If price will break 1.0620 support on close bar so the reversal of the price movement from ranging bullish to the primary ebarish market condition will be started.
  • If not so the price will be on ranging within the levels.


Resistance
Support
1.07001.0655
N/A

  • Recommendation to go short: watch the price to break 1.0620 support level for possible sell trade
  • Recommendation to go long: watch the price to break 1.0700 resistance level for possible buy trade
  • Trading Summary: ranging

Weekly EUR/USD Outlook: 2017, February 12 - February 19 (based on the article)



EUR/USD was unable to take advantage of the greenback’s weakness and suffered trouble of its own. GDP numbers stand out and also the ECB meeting minutes should be watched.
  1. German GDP: Tuesday, 7:00. An accelerated level of growth is expected for Q4, in line with other European countries that have already published their inflation figures.
  2. German CPI (final): Tuesday, 7:00.
  3. Italian GDP: Tuesday, 9:00. The data for Q4 could be positive.
  4. Flash GDP: Tuesday,10:00.
  5. German ZEW Economic Sentiment: Tuesday, 10:00. The all-European number stood at 23.2 points.
  6. Industrial Production: Tuesday, 10:00. The data for December will probably be negative due to Germany’s poor performance.
  7. Trade Balance: Wednesday, 10:00.
  8. ECB Meeting Minutes: Thursday, 12:30. Four weeks after the European Central Bank stuck to its dovish tone, the minutes from the meeting are released. It will be interesting to see whether some members were opposed to dismissing the recent rise in inflation as only energy-based or if some of the German members wanted to express a more upbeat tone.
  9. Current Account: Friday, 9:00. A surplus of 36.1 billion was seen in November.
