Where To Buy? - Credit Suisse (based on efxnews article)

  • "While resistance at 1.1397 caps, the immediate risk is seen staying lower, and a conclusive break below 1.1214 would warn the recent break higher and completion of a base was "false", to target the 61.8% retracement level at 1.1155 next, then the 21- and 55-day averages at 1.1125/07."
  • "Resistance moves to 1.1308 initially, then 1.1364. Above the “neckline” to last week’s small top at 1.1397 is needed to turn attention back to the 1.1714 breakout high."


CS runs a limit order to buy EUR/USD at 1.1108, with a stop at 1.1018 and a target at 1.1520.

EUR/USD To Recover Friday Losses (based on actionforex article)


  • 'What we're looking out for this week is the dollar strengthening back again given that Fischer has failed to rule out a September rate hike.' - Bank of New Zealand Ltd (based on Bloomberg)
  • "EUR/USD increased pressure on bulls as it decided to retreat below the monthly R1 at 1.1196 on Friday. However, an immediate recovery above this important support during the weekend and on Monday is raising hopes a recovery will take place in the nearest future. At first, the common currency is required to consolidate above the Aug 28 opening price of 1.1242, while the next resistance is represented by the same day's high at 1.1309. Meanwhile, additional demand is also created by the 20-day SMA, currently at 1.1215, as well as strongly bullish daily technical indicators."

Trade Ideas For EUR/USD, AUD/USD - UBS (based on efxnews article)

EUR/USD: "has traded bid since yesterday and it looks like 1.1200 is going to act as a base. We expect selling interest to show up on any move closer to 1.1400, so play the intraday moves and fade a 70 to 80 pip move in either direction, with stops at 1.1150 and 1.1425." 


AUD/USD: "continues to trade sideways.We still see AUDUSD heading lower, but are a bit cautious as the pair seems to struggle below 0.7100. This could be due to seasonal demand, and we will have to see if the sharp bounce in oil will support other commodities. Sell rallies between 0.7180 and 0.7250, with a stop above 0.7325."

Deutsche Bank: bullish condition for EUR/USD during and immediate after NFP (based on efxnews article)

BNP Paribas made the forecast for NFP to be more than 220K on Friday: "Our economists expect an above-consensus 230K increase in jobs and a steady unemployment rate of 5.3%."

By the way, Deutsche Bank is expecting for NFP to be significantly below 220K expectation:

  • "To be clear, we do not believe that underlying momentum in the labor market has meaningfully deteriorated. As we have previously noted, August employment has historically tended to disappoint consensus expectations. The last four August payroll reports were all weaker than expected; they were on average 55k below consensus."
  • "The data are even more compelling if we go back further in time. Since 1988, when our sample begins, August nonfarm payrolls have disappointed the financial markets in 21 of the last 27 years, or 78% of the time. The average forecasting error has been -61k. The range of misses, though, has been large. The median forecast error has been -42k."

So, we can expect the following concerning EUR/USD for example:

  • BNP Paribas - bearish condition for this pair during and immediate after this high impacted news event.
  • Deutsche Bank - bullish condition for this pair during and immediate after this high impacted news event.

Trading the News: European Central Bank (ECB) Interest Rate Decision (based on dailyfx article)

Even though the European Central Bank (ECB) is widely expected to retain its current policy in September, the fresh updates coming out of the Governing Council may trigger a selloff in EUR/USD should the committee show a greater willingness to expand/extend its quantitative easing (QE) program.

What’s Expected:


Why Is This Event Important

Dovish rhetoric accompanied by a downward revision in the ECB’s growth & inflation forecast is likely to dampen the appeal of the Euro, and central bank President Mario Draghi may talk up bets for additional monetary support in an effort to further insulate the fragile recovery in Europe.

Nevertheless, we may get more of the same from the ECB as the non-standard measures work through the real economy, and the near-term bound in EUR/USD may gather pace in September should the central bank endorse a wait-and-see approach.

How To Trade This Event Risk
Bearish EUR Trade: ECB Shows Greater Willingness for Larger/Longer QE Program

  • Need red, five-minute candle following the policy announcement to consider a short EUR/USD trade.
  • If market reaction favors a bearish Euro trade, sell EUR/USD with two separate position.
  • Set stop at the near-by swing high/reasonable distance from cost; need at least 1:1 risk-to-reward.
  • Move stop to entry on remaining position once initial target is met, set reasonable limit.
Bullish EUR Trade: President Draghi Continues to Endorse Wait-and-See Approach
  • Need green, five-minute candle to favor a long EUR/USD trade.
  • Implement same strategy as the bearish euro trade, just in the opposite direction.
Potential Price Targets For The Release

EURUSD Daily


  • Despite expectations for a greater deviation in the policy outlook, need a break of the near-term bullish trends in price & RSI to favor a further decline in EUR/USD.
  • Interim Resistance: 1.1760 (61.8% retracement) to 1.1810 (38.2% retracement)
  • Interim Support: Interim Support: 1.0790 (50% expansion) to 1.0800 (23.6% expansion)

2015-09-03 13:30 GMT (or 15:30 MQ MT5 time) | [USD - Trade Balance]
  • past data is -45.2B
  • forecast data is -43.2B
  • actual data is -41.9B according to the latest press release

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

Export demand and currency demand are directly linked because foreigners must buy the domestic currency to pay for the nation's exports. Export demand also impacts production and prices at domestic manufacturers.

July exports were $188.5 billion, $0.8 billion more than June exports. July imports were $230.4 billion, $2.5 billion less than June imports."
