EUR/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: FOMC Member Dudley Speech and 16 pips price movement
2016-05-10 07:15 GMT | [USD - FOMC Member Dudley Speaks]
[USD - FOMC Member Dudley Speaks] = Speech in a panel discussion about the international monetary system, in Zurich.
"The dollar’s dominant reserve currency status has sometimes been
referred to as the United States’ “exorbitant privilege,” implying that
the U.S. benefits extraordinarily from this privileged status. I’d
argue that the situation is much more nuanced. Yes, this status does
allow the U.S. to benefit from seigniorage. More than half of all U.S.
currency outstanding is held abroad. But, there are also costs of being
the dominant reserve currency. For example, this can lead to shifts in
the valuation of the dollar that are due primarily to developments
abroad that affect risk appetites and international capital flows. In
such cases, the dollar’s valuation can be pushed to levels inconsistent
with U.S. economic fundamentals.
I welcome other countries’ progress toward achieving the preconditions
necessary for their currencies to attain the stature of a reserve
currency. However, we should not act as if this is sufficient to
achieve a well-functioning global financial system. In particular, the
current regime is inefficient in a number of important ways. Countries
have found it necessary to self-insure against the risk of large capital
flow reversals. This has led to a very sharp rise in aggregate foreign
exchange reserve holdings. This form of self-insurance is very
expensive—especially when the return on the foreign exchange reserve
portfolio is less than the cost of the domestic liabilities that fund
these holdings. As I have said in the past, I encourage more work to
examine whether there are other more efficient regimes that, for
example, would economize on required foreign exchange reserve buffers.
In this regard, I think expanding the capacity of the IMF’s resources
and working to further de-stigmatize drawing on the IMF’s liquidity
facilities could be worthwhile steps in this direction."

Technical Targets for EUR/USD by United Overseas Bank (based on the article)
EUR/USD: intra-day bearish, daily correction
is located below 200
period SMA (200 SMA) for the ranging market condition within the following key reversal support/resistance levels:
the price breaks 1.1361 level to above so the intra-day bullish reversal will be started, and if the price breaks 1.1282 level to below so the
bearish trend will be continuing.
Daily price is located above 200 SMA for the bullish market
condition: price is testing 1.1282 support level for the secondary correction to be continuing.
United Overseas Bank is considering the EUR/USD price to be on downtrend with 1.1215 target:
"The unexpected breach of 1.1350 and 1.1300 last Friday has shifted the
risk to the downside. While the outlook for EUR is bearish from here,
the downside potential appears to be limited to a test of April’s low of
1.1210/15. Downward momentum is only beginning to improve and a break
back above 1.1400 is enough to indicate that a short-term low is in

EUR/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: FOMC Meeting Minutes and 66 pips price movement
2016-05-18 18:00 GMT | [USD - FOMC Meeting Minutes]
[USD - FOMC Meeting Minutes] = Record of the FOMC's most recent meeting, providing
in-depth insights into the economic and financial conditions that
influenced their vote on where to set interest rates.
"Participants agreed that their ongoing assessments of the data and other
incoming information, as well as the implications for the outlook,
would determine the timing and pace of future adjustments to the stance
of monetary policy. Most participants judged that if incoming data were
consistent with economic growth picking up in the second quarter, labor
market conditions continuing to strengthen, and inflation making
progress toward the Committee's 2 percent objective, then it likely
would be appropriate for the Committee to increase the target range for
the federal funds rate in June. Participants expressed a range of views
about the likelihood that incoming information would make it appropriate
to adjust the stance of policy at the time of the next meeting. Several
participants were concerned that the incoming information might not
provide sufficiently clear signals to determine by mid-June whether an
increase in the target range for the federal funds rate would be
warranted. Some participants expressed more confidence that incoming
data would prove broadly consistent with economic conditions that would
make an increase in the target range in June appropriate. Some
participants were concerned that market participants may not have
properly assessed the likelihood of an increase in the target range at
the June meeting, and they emphasized the importance of communicating
clearly over the intermeeting period how the Committee intends to
respond to economic and financial developments."
