Victor Ziborov:

Today is September 6, 2017. The maximum price of EURUSD was 1.2070 on August 29, 2017. After that, there were no serious events that could seriously move the price anywhere. After that, we had NonFarm = 156K (it's less than 200K) on September 1, which did not affect the situation in any way. (When NonFarm is more than 200K, this provokes serious movement.)

Tomorrow September 7 at 14:45 (Kiev), the following event will occur, which may move the EURUSD price even higher. This is the interest rate for the EUR (Minimum Bid Rate). And the next event will take place on September 20. This is the interest rate for USD (Federal Funds Rate). This event can also seriously change the situation.

Weekly EUR/USD Outlook: 2017, September 10 - September 17 (based on the article)


"Looking ahead to the coming week, we do not have any major news from the Eurozone but we have the PPI and the CPI data from the US which should tell us about the inflation in the US and give us a hint of when the next rate hike from the Fed would be. With the pair closing the week above 1.20, we believe that the uptrend is still intact but the moves could be much slower than usual as the ECB is clearly uncomfortable with the euro being at these levels and the traders seem to be biding their time for a turnaround in the dollar strength. So, in the coming week, we could see the EURUSD make its way towards the 1.21 and then 1.22 region provided the US data is not too strong. Else, we could see the pair correct towards 1.18."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for EUR/USD (based on the article)


EUR/USD"Fed Fund Futures highlight growing expectations Chair Janet Yellen and Co. will stay on hold throughout the remainder of the year as the central bank struggles to achieve the 2% target for price growth, with Governor Lael Brainard warning the central bank ‘should be cautious about tightening policy further until we are confident inflation is on track to achieve our target.’ In turn, the data prints coming out ahead of the September 20 interest rate decision may produce headwinds for the dollar as the core U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) is projected to slowdown in August, while Retail Sales are anticipated to increase 0.1% following a 0.6% expansion in July. Subdued price growth accompanied by signs of easing consumptions may encourage the FOMC to preserve a wait-and-see approach especially as Vice-Chair Stanley Fischer departs the central bank in October, and Fed officials may ultimately project a more shallow path for the benchmark interest rate as Hurricane Harvey and Irma risk derailing the economic recovery."

Will there be a downward turn on the EURUSD chart?

As can be seen from the graph, we have a clear divergence in the MACD, which allows us to assume a possible downward turn, or at least an approaching flat. Meanwhile, the presence of divergence is not a 100% guarantee of the forecast. On the chart, we showed weekly candles in yellow. As you can see, the last four weeks candles look up confidently. Therefore, we can not conclude that we can predict a 100% turn down.

Market still fear on how Hurricans would affect the Dollar, I'm expecting Eur/Usd would extend its gain afer the correction movement. Resistance can be found around 1.2090/1.2100 zone.

  • "Everyone agrees that we have to make sure that the reduction of the stimulus takes place in an orderly manner, without any excessive shocks."

Weekly EUR/USD Outlook: 2017, September 17 - September 24 (based on the article)

EUR/USD suffered under pressure from the US dollar and as the German elections near. Is this just a correction after reaching new highs? Or has the rally peaked? Inflation data and PMIs stand out now. Here is an outlook for the highlights of this week.


  1. CPI (final): Monday, 9:00. The numbers will likely be confirmed in the final read.
  2. Bundesbank Monthly Report: Monday, 10:00. An upbeat assessment will support Chancellor Angela Merkel.
  3. Current Account: Tuesday, 8:00. A slightly wider surplus of 22.3 billion is predicted.
  4. German ZEW Economic Sentiment: Tuesday, 9:00. A score of 22.3 billion is projected.
  5. German PPI: Wednesday, 6:00. A rise of 0.1% is forecast.
  6. ECB Economic Bulletin: Thursday, 8:00. This monthly report by the European Central Bank provides insight on how they see the economic situation and price development. It is a more detailed report than the statement released after the rate decision.
  7. Consumer Confidence: Thursday, 16:00. A repeat of the same score is on the cards.
  8. Flash PMIs: Friday: 7:00 for France, 7:30 for Germany and 8:00 for the euro-zone. 
  9. Belgian NBB Business Climate: Friday, 13:00. A similar score of -2 is projected now.

EUR/USD Intra-Day FundamentalsECB President Draghi Speech and range price movement 

2017-09-21 14:30 GMT | [EUR - ECB President Draghi Speaks]

If the speech suggests the tightening of the monetary policy = positive for the euro.

[EUR - ECB President Draghi Speaks] = Speech to deliver opening remarks at the European Systemic Risk Board annual conference, in Frankfurt. 

==========

From official report :

  • "Financial and business cycles can potentially become de-synchronised, meaning that financial imbalances can grow in an environment characterised by relatively muted inflation. In such an environment, the use of monetary policy is not the right instrument to address financial imbalances, and may lead to substantial deviations of aggregate output and inflation from their desirable levels. This is particularly so in a currency union where monetary policy affects the entire region, but financial imbalances may be local in nature. Macroprudential policies, targeted at particular markets or countries, can play a key role in addressing such imbalances."
  • "But beyond increasing the resilience of the banking sector, there is also a need to address the remaining legacies of the crisis. Two important aspects are the resolution of already impaired assets, and better accounting for impaired assets for the future."
