Forex Weekly Outlook August 18-22

US housing data, Inflation data in the UK, the US and Canada, FOMC Meeting Minutes, Philly Fed Manufacturing Index, Janet Yellen’s speech are a few of the major events on Forex calendar. Follow along as we explore the Forex market movers for this week.

Last week US retail sales disappointed with a flat reading in July, a poor start to the third quarter, suggesting some loss of momentum. Economists expected 0.2% increase. The unchanged reading was the weakest since January, preceded by a 0.2% gain in June. However, despite the lukewarm release, sales are expected to rise in the coming months thanks to the growth trend in the labor market, strengthening domestic demand. The uneven economic growth will enable Fed Chair Janet Yellen to keep interest rates low for a longer period.
  1. UK Inflation data: Tuesday, 8:30. UK consumer prices edged up 1.9% in June, reaching a five year high amid price rises in food and summer clothes. The reading was higher than the 1.6% climb forecasted by analysts and topped May’s 1.5% increase. This rise may prompt the BOE to increase rates sooner than estimated. Inflation is expected to remain tame in the coming months, however, inflation threat will rise if wages increase. UK consumer prices are expected to reach 1.8% this time.
  2. US Building Permits: Tuesday, 12:20. U.S. housing starts and building permits unexpectedly fell in June, indicating uneven growth in the housing market, following the slowdown in late 2013. Permits declined 4.2% to a 963,000-unit pace in June, while economists expected them to rise to a 1.04-million unit pace. Permits for single-family homes edged up 2.6% to a 631,000 unit-pace, the highest level since November. Permits for multi-family housing plunged 14.9% to a 332,000-unit pace. A rise to on million unit pace is forecasted now.
  3. US Inflation data: Tuesday, 12:30. U.S. consumer prices gained 0.3% in June, following 0.4% increase in May, amid a rise in gasoline prices. The rise was in line with market forecast. On a yearly base CPI edged up 2.1% as in May, indicating inflationary pressures are building up. Fed Chair Janet warned the Fed may raise interest rates sooner than estimated if the job market continued to improve. Meanwhile, core inflation excluding energy prices rose 0.1% after rising 0.3% in May. In the 12 months through June, the core CPI increased 1.9 % after climbing 2.0% in May. Consumer prices are expected to rise 0.1% , while core prices are expected to gain 0.2%.
  4. US FOMC Meeting Minutes: Wednesday, 18:00. The FOMC minutes from June meeting showed that taper continued as scheduled, expecting to end in October, if all goes well. The Fed is forecasted to stop reinvestment of paid principal on bonds as soon as the first rate hike is announced. For controlling the pace of unwinding, interest on excess reserves (IOER) will be the key tool and reverse repos will play a supporting role. The Fed noted a rise in inflation, however the lob market recovery is not complete despite recent improvements.
  5. US Unemployment Claims: Thursday, 12:30. The number of Americans applying for U.S. unemployment benefits increased last week to 311,000 from 290,000 in the previous week. Despite the 21,000 climb, jobless claims remain close to pre-recession levels. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, increased 2,000 to 295,750, nearing the averages before the Great Recession in late 2007. The number of jobless claims is expected to grow by 299,000.
  6. US Existing Home Sales: Thursday, 14:00. The U.S. existing home sales edged up in June to a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 5.04 million units, rising 2.6% from May, however still below the 5.16 million-unit rate seen last year. Economists expected a lower figure of 4.98 million units. Inventories remained high and price gains slowed in many parts of the country increasing transactions. Nevertheless, the housing sector remains a concern for the Federal Reserve ever since the rise in mortgage rates in 2013. Existing home sales are expected to reach 5.01 million units.
  7. US Philly Fed Manufacturing Index: Thursday, 14:00. Manufacturing activity in the Philadelphia-region picked up in July to 23.9 points, rising 6.1 points from June. This was the fastest gain in more than three years. Analysts expected the index to drop to15.6 in July. The current new orders component increased 17 points. The current indicators for labor market conditions to improve. Philly Fed Manufacturing Index is expected to reach 20.3.
  8. Janet Yellen speaks: Friday, 14:00. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will speak to the central bank’s symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Yellen will deliver a speech titled “Labor Markets.” She will not answer questions from the audience. The Fed’s three-day gathering of central bankers and economists will be titled “Re-evaluating Labor Market Dynamics.” The conference has foreshadowed some of the Fed’s major policy shifts. Market volatility is expected.
  9. Mario Draghi speaks: Friday, 18:30. European Central Bank head Mario Draghi will follow Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s speech at the Jackson Hole Symposium and talk about employment issues. Market volatility is expected.

EURUSD Technical Analysis: Holding Short in Consolidation (based on dailyfx article)

  • EURUSD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.3644
  • Support: 1.3345, 1.3291, 1.3248
  • Resistance:1.3419, 1.3472, 1.3516



The Euro may be preparing for a rebound against the US Dollar having declined as expected after showing a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. The appearance of a Hammer candle coupled with positive RSI divergence now argues for an on-coming correction. Near-term resistance is at 1.3419, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a daily close above that exposing the intersection of the 38.2% level and a falling channel top at 1.3472. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib expansion at 1.3345 clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% threshold at 1.3291.

U.S. Consumer Prices Inch Up Just 0.1% In July

Consumer prices saw only a modest increase in the month of July, according to a report released by the Labor Department on Tuesday, with higher prices for shelter and food offset by decreases in prices for energy and airline fares.

The Labor Department said its consumer price index ticked up by 0.1 percent in July after rising by 0.3 percent in June. The modest increase by the index matched economist estimates.

The uptick in consumer prices was partly due to higher food prices, which climbed by 0.4 percent in July after inching up by 0.1 percent in June.

The other food at home index increased by 0.7 percent, its largest increase since August of 2011, while the index for non-alcoholic beverages rose by 0.5 percent.

Meanwhile, the report showed that the energy index pulled back by 0.3 percent in July after surging up by 1.6 percent in the previous month.

EURUSD Technical Analysis forecast for the week of August 18, 2014 (based on fxempire article)

The EUR/USD pair initially fell during the course of the week, but for the third week in a row found support below, and ended up forming a hammer. Because of that, we believe that the Euro is about to get a bounce, not only because of this chart, but because of some other EUR related charts. With that, we think that we are heading to the 1.35 handle first, and then will have to make more significant decisions at that level. In the meantime, we would not be interested in selling this market until we get below the 1.33 level.

Strategy Video: EURUSD Breaks Support to Extend Fundamental, Technical Trend

  • EURUSD marked a technical break of recent wedge support and a 50% Fib at 1.3325
  • The medium and long-term outlook for the Euro and US Dollar are on very divergent paths
  • However, the momentum for this recent continuation effort may prove uneven given its catalyst

EURUSD has cleared support and further progressed a four-month reversal into a fully developed bear trend. However, does this most recent push promise momentum? The medium and long-term fundamental and technical picture paint a very appealing view. The turn off resistance from a decade-long wedge pattern has aligned itself to a larger change in underlying fundamentals: through growth, rate speculation and perhaps eventually risk trends and capital flows. The opportunity is significant, but the market's momentum behind the theme is still lacking. What should we look for in an active trade? How quickly should we expect a setup to play out under these circumstances? We focus on the EURUSD in today's Strategy Video.

EURUSD touched multi-month low (based on dailyfx article)


  • EUR/USD has come under further pressure to touch its lowest level since late September
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the euro while below 1.3430
  • The 6th square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.3280 is a key pivot with a daily close below needed to confirm that a new leg lower is underway
  • A cycle turn window is eyed on Thursday
  • A move over 1.3430 would turn us positive on the euro
EUR/USD Strategy: Holding only reduced short positions while below 1.3430.

German Private Sector Growth Slows In August

Germany's private sector growth slowed in August as contraction in manufacturing deepened further, flash data from Markit Economics showed Thursday.

The composite output index dropped to 54.9 in August from 55.7 in July. The current sequence of continuous activity growth now stretches to 16 months.

The service sector remained the driving force behind the overall expansion in August. Although the services Purchasing Managers' Index fell to 56.4 from 56.7 in July, it remained above the expected score of 55.5.

Meanwhile, the manufacturing PMI dropped to 52 in August from 52.4 a month ago. The index was expected to fall more sharply to 51.5.

"The PMI data available for the third quarter so far point to a swift recovery in GDP from the ground lost during the second quarter," Oliver Kolodseike, an economist at Markit, said.
