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

EUR/USD managed to edge up as the ECB expressed some cautious optimism. Another appearance by Draghi as well as inflation and trade figures stand out in the upcoming week. 


  1. Mario Draghi talks: Monday, 13:30. The President of the ECB has another opportunity to move the euro.
  2. German CPI (final): Tuesday, 7:00.
  3. German ZEW Economic Sentiment: Tuesday, 10:00. The all-European figure stood at 17.1 points last time and is expected to hit 19.3 now.
  4. Industrial output: Tuesday, 10:00.
  5. French CPI (final): Wednesday, 7:45. According to the flash read for February, prices increased by 0.1% in the eurozone’s second-largest economy. The figure will probably be confirmed.
  6. Employment Change: Wednesday, 10:00.
  7. CPI (final): Thursday, 10:00.
  8. Trade Balance: Friday, 10:00. The euro-zone enjoys a wide trade surplus, driven by Germany’s export machine. After a positive 24.5 billion in December, a narrower surplus is on the cards now: 22.3 billion.

EUR/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: ECB President Draghi Speaks and 11 pips range price movement 

2017-03-13 13:30 GMT | [EUR - ECB President Draghi Speaks]

[EUR - ECB President Draghi Speaks] = Speech at a joint conference organized by the European Central Bank and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Frankfurt.

==========

From official report:

  • "There are many reasons why it is a priority today in the euro area to address weak productivity growth. But while some progress can be made in innovation, it is not in my view the sole issue. Equally important for the euro area is to facilitate and encourage the spread of new technology from the frontier to the laggard firms."
  • "Of course, creating the right regulatory framework and market conditions to nurture innovation and promote its transformation into new products and processes is complex, and there is no particular established winning formula. But there are a number of countries in the euro area that have proven relatively more successful at putting in place an effective “innovation ecosystem”."
  • "Simply by diffusing better the technology we already have in the euro area, we could make sizeable gains in productivity. In other words, there is much we can still do to reverse the aggregate productivity slowdown and dispel pessimism about our future."

Job gains remained solid and the unemployment rate was little changed in recent months. Household spending has continued to rise moderately while business fixed investment appears to have firmed somewhat. Inflation has increased in recent quarters, moving close to the Committee's 2 percent longer-run objective; excluding energy and food prices, inflation was little changed and continued to run somewhat below 2 percent. Market-based measures of inflation compensation remain low; survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations are little changed, on balance."
  • "The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System voted unanimously to raise the interest rate paid on required and excess reserve balances to 1.00 percent, effective March 16, 2017."

Here's my prediction for EUR/USD



I am looking for a 1.09000 level before end of the Month. This will allow me to have a good SELL entry for my expected downtrend for the Month of April 2017. I am expecting that the eurusd price will test 1.04000 level by April or first week of may.


Happy trading..

EUR/USD: intra-day ranging for the bullish to be resumed or for the correction to be started (based on the article)

H4 price is located above Senkou Span line which is the virtual border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish trend on the chart. The price is on ranging within 1.0824/1.0769 support/resistance levels since 21st of march this year waiting for the bullish trend to be resumed or for the secondary correction to be started.


  • "The 240 minute EUR/USD Forex chart has been rallying for 4 weeks. Yet, the rally over the past 6 days has had many reversals and bear bars. It therefore is probably the start of a trading range."
  • "While the daily EUR/USD chart has been rallying up from a higher low major trend reversal for 4 weeks, it has not yet strongly broken above the neck line. In addition, the rally is a wedge top on the 240 minute chart. Furthermore, it has been especially weak over the past 6 days. These 6 days look like a bull leg in a trading range. Hence, the EUR/USD chart will probably pull back to test the most recent higher low, which was Tuesday’s low."
