    EUR/USD Weekly Outlook: 2016, July 03 - July 10 (based on the article)

    EUR/USD wobbled in the post-Brexit week, but basically did not go too far. More PMIs as well as the postponed ECB meeting minutes are eyed. Will EUR/USD choose a new direction? Here is an outlook for the highlights of this week.

    1. Services PMIs: Tuesday: Markit releases the data for Spain at 7:!5, Italy at 7:45, the final French figure at 7:50, final German number at 7:55 and final euro-zone number at 8:00. Spain saw robust growth in its services sector in May with 55.4 points, above the 50 point threshold separating expansion and contraction. A score of 55.2 is expected for June. On the other hand, Italy suffered from slight contraction with 49.8 points. 50.3 is predicted now. The initial read for France for June showed a weak 49.9 points. Germany contrasted that with 53.2 and the whole euro-zone with 52.4. These 3 numbers will likely be confirmed in the final read.
    2. Retail Sales: Tuesday, 9:00. 
    3. German Factory Orders: Wednesday, 6:00.
    4. Retail PMI: Wednesday, 8:10.
    5. German Industrial Production: Thursday, 6:00.
    6. French Trade Balance: Thursday, 6:45.
    7. ECB Meeting Minutes: Postponed from last week. Thursday, 11:30. The ECB releases minutes from its June meeting, when the ECB did not announce new measures but described the implementation of corporate bond buying and the new TLTROs. In that meeting, they also provided new forecasts which were not too optimistic. The minutes can show how worried members really are regarding their inflation mandate. It can also expose the internal debate. What could be more interesting is if we get details about the members’ view on the potential of Brexit.
    8. German Trade Balance: Friday, 6:00.
    9. French Industrial Production: Friday, 6:45.
    10. US Non-Farm Payrolls: Friday, 12:30. US monthly jobs report for June is forecast to show a 181,000 jobs gain, while the unemployment rate is estimated to rise to 4.8%.

    Technical Targets for EUR/USD by United Overseas Bank (based on the article)

    H4 price is located near and below 200 period SMA (200 SMA) for the bearish ranging near bullish reversal. The price is on ranging within the following key s/r levels:

    • 1.1426 resistance level located above 200 SMA in the bullish area of the chart, and
    • 1.0911 support level located below 100 SMA/200 SMA reversal on the bearish area.

    Bullish reversal level for H4 timeframe is 1.1168, and if the price breaks this level to above so the reversal of the price movement from the ranging bearish to the primary bullish trend will be started


    Daily price. United Overseas Bank is considering for EUR/USD to be on the bearish market condition with 1.0813 key support level:

    "The current short-term consolidation/correction phase is taking longer than expected as EUR continues to hold above the 1.1095/00 support. Downward momentum is beginning to show signs of slowing but as long as 1.1210 is intact, we are not giving up on our bearish view just yet. That said, the prospect for a sustained down-move has clearly dimmed and EUR has to move and stay below 1.1095 within these couple of days or the risk of an interim low would continue to increase."


    • If daily price breaks 1.1168 resistance level on close bar so the bullish reversal will be started.
    • If daily price breaks 1.0911 support level on close bar so the primary bearish trend will be continuing with 1.0813 level as a possible bearish target.
    • If not so the price will be ranging within the levels.

    EUR/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: U.S. Factory Orders and 25 pips price movement

    2016-07-05 14:00 GMT | [USD - Factory Orders]

    if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for USD in our case)

    [USD - Factory Orders] = Change in the total value of new purchase orders placed with manufacturers.

    ==========

    U.S. factory orders fall, but unfilled orders increase :

    • "New orders for U.S. factory goods fell in May on weak demand for transportation and defense capital goods, but growing order backlogs and lean inventories suggested the worst of the manufacturing downturn was probably over."
    • "The Commerce Department said on Tuesday new orders for manufactured goods declined 1.0 percent after two straight months of increases."
    • "April's orders were revised slightly down to show a 1.8 percent increase instead of the previously reported 1.9 percent jump. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast factory orders falling 0.9 percent in May."
    • "The department also said orders for non-defense capital goods excluding aircraft fell 0.4 percent in May instead of the 0.7 percent drop reported last month. These so-called core capital goods are seen as a measure of business confidence and spending plans on equipment."

    Bank of America Merrill Lynch - "We now expect EUR/USD to end 2016 at 1.05" (adapted from the article)

    Bank of America Merrill Lynch predicted for EUR/USD price to be around 1.05 by 2016 year end, and at 1.10 by by the end of 2017:
    "We revised our projections following the UK referendum. We now expect EUR/USD to end 2016 at 1.05, from 1.08 before, appreciating to 1.10 by the end of 2017, from 1.15 before. These projections will still keep the Euro undervalued, but not substantially, compared with our equilibrium EUR/USD estimate of 1.16. In our view, a much weaker Euro would affect the Fed’s policy reaction function, as the US data remains mixed, recently losing momentum."

    If we look at the weekly chart so the price is located on the bearish market condition with the ranging within 1.1455 resistance level and 1.0936 support level. Breaking the resistance at 1.1455 will lead to the ranging bearish condition by the bear market rally up to the possible weekly bullish reversal. Alternative, if the price breaks 1.0936 support to below on close weekly bar so the primary bearish trend will be continuing up to 1.0516 support level as a the end-year bearish target.


    Most likely scenario for the long-term price movement for this pair is the following: ranging bearish market condition will be continuing within 1.11/1.05 ranging area.

        Trading News Events: U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls by Barclays, TD, Goldman (adapted from the article)


        Barclays: "For the June US employment report, we expect nonfarm payrolls to rise by 175k, private payrolls to increase by 170k, and government payrolls to rise by 5k. A number in line with our expectation would represent a modest rebound in hiring relative to the May employment report after adjusting for the effects of the Verizon strike. Telecommunications employment fell 37k in May, about in line with the estimate of the strike-related effects as estimated by the BLS, and we look for this employment to return in June given the conclusion of the strike prior to the survey week. Elsewhere in the report, we expect the unemployment rate to remain unchanged at 4.7%. Finally, we expect average hourly earnings to rise 0.2% m/m (2.7% y/y) and average weekly hours to hold steady at 34.4."

        TD: "We expect the sharp downdraft in employment to partially reverse in June, with a forecasted increase of 175k jobs. This print will be supported by the return of 34k Verizon workers who were on strike in May. In addition to the rebound in the telecom sector, a bounce back in the wholesale, manufacturing and construction sectors should also bolster the headline print. The unemployment rate is forecast to increase to 4.8% from the cycle-low of 4.7% on account of an expected rebound in the labor force (following the outsized 820K decline over the prior two months), which should more than offset the gains in household employment. On the wage growth front, average hourly earnings are expected to rise modestly, posting a 0.2% m/m gain, resulting in the pace of wage growth accelerating from 2.5% to 2.7% y/y due in large part to favorable base effects."


        Goldman: "We forecast that nonfarm payroll growth rebounded to +210k in June from just +38k in May. In part the pickup reflects the conclusion of a strike at Verizon Communications—this alone accounts for 70k of the month-over-month swing. However, we also see scope for improvement beyond Verizon, as other labor market data have generally looked encouraging. We expect a small increase in the unemployment rate to 4.8% after its three month decline in May. Data from the household survey have been volatile in recent months, but the broad trends—participation stabilizing and job growth remaining strong enough to reduce slack over time—still look intact. We see a low month-over-month gain in average hourly earnings due to calendar quirks, but the year-over-year rate should edge higher."

        EUR/USD Quick Technical Overview: intra-day bearish trend to be resumed.
