    EUR/USD Technical Analysis: ranging near Senkou Span waiting for the bearish reversal (based on the article)

    Daily price is located near and above Senkou Span line which is the virtual border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish trend on the chart. The price is going to be tested with descending triangle pattern together with 1.0569 support level to below for the bearish reversal to be started, otherwise - bullish ranging waiting for direction.


    "Since the start of the year, EUR/USD daily RSI has oscillated between 60 and 40 (nothing above 70 or below 30). This ‘RSI profile’ indicates range conditions. At some point, these range conditions will break and a trend will emerge. When is that ‘some point’? I don’t know but it’s probably soon because this feeling of peak frustration is typical before a sizeable move. Price wise, a short term trendline is being put to the test. If it breaks, then short term focus is towards the year open at 1.0466 and maybe a lot lower given the 3 wave rally from the January low."

    Weekly EUR/USD Outlook: 2017, April 23 - April 30 (based on the article)

    EUR/USD drifted to the upside, driven by the dollar’s weakness. Is there more to come? The big event of the upcoming week is the French elections, followed by the ECB decision.


    1. French Presidential Elections: Sunday, exit poll expected before markets open, but full results could wait for Monday morning if the race is very close.
    2. German Ifo Business Climate: Monday, 8:00. Germany’s No. 1 Think-tank reported a rise in business confidence, to a score of 112.3, above expectations.
    3. Belgian NBB Business Climate: Tuesday, 13:00. A drop of 0.1% m/m is forecast.
    4. Spanish Unemployment Rate: Thursday, 6:00. The fourth-largest economy in the euro-zone still suffers from a very high level of unemployment, but this has been improving. In Q4 2016, the unemployment rate stood at 18.6%. The same rate is estimated now.
    5. German GfK Consumer Climate: Thursday, 6:00. A tick up to 9.9 is projected.
    6. Spanish CPI: Thursday, 7:00. A bump up to 2.5% is expected.
    7. ECB rate decision: Thursday: decision at 11:45 and the press conference is at 12:30.
    8. German retail sales: Friday, 6:00. A modest advance of 0.1% is likely now.
    9. French CPI: Friday, 6:45. A rise of 0.2% is projected.
    10. Spanish GDP: Friday, 7:00. A similar expansion is predicted now: 0.7% once again.
    11. Monetary data: Friday, 8:00. The ECB tracks the money in circulation (M3 Money Supply) and private loans. M3 has growth at an annual rate of 4.7% in February. Private loans had accelerated their growth rate to 2.3% back then. M3 is expected to rise at the same pace while the volume of loans will likely accelerate to 2.4%.

    French Election: intra-day breakout with the bullish reversal; 1.09 resistance is the key (based on the article)

    Daily H4 intra-day price broke Ichimoku cloud to above for the breakout with the bullish reversal: the price is testing 1.0906 resistance level for the bullish trend to be continuing.


    • "The EUR/USD currency pair looked set to open around two cents higher at near $1.09 this Sunday night - around about a 5-month high. And, there could be some “pretty big volatility and wider-than-usual bid-ask spreads” at times. For most of the past week the euro has traded at a touch above 1.07, but rose late today towards the 1.09 mark."
    • "It might not hold those gains for long but no nightmare scenario should be worth about 1-2%,” he ventured. Added to that any exuberance in the markets is likely to be tempered by a number of factors."
