Euro bounce from 1.3060 support for second time means we are heading north now, in H4 chart after breaking resistance now my focus is on daily resistance around 1.3340/50 that we might see next week. For today after breaking 1.3170 resistance we should see 1.3220/40 targets for today.
The EURO continued its unclear direction yesterday trapped between 1.3060 and 1.3180 , bottomed at 1.3068 , topped at 1.3184, closed at 1.3142..
Today I assume a bearish move testing the key support 1.3120 / 13080 , a clear break below this level should test the key support 1.3030/1.3000.
Immediate resistance is seen around 1.3185, stability below 1.3250 is indeed to keep the bearish move suggested for today valid, a clear break above this level would mix up things and test…Continue

Euro is locked in a range, 200 pip bound trading is expecterd between 1.2980-13180 this week surviving dip below 1.30 due to poor US data, but all odds suggest that Euro’s upside will remain limited as sellers of currency will not hesitate to short Euro in the absence of any positive news from the Euro-zone region.
Preferred strategy remains unchanged i.e, to sell Euro on the rise, as Europe has nothing positive to offer. In reality European financial market…Continue

US equity markets are opening with some light selling pressure despite some positive stories out of Europe. During the latest bond auctions, treasury fell in France and Spain and corporate earnings from some key financial companies (Bank of America and Morgan Stanley) surpassed analyst estimates, and both stocks rose more than 4 percent after the releases. The latest earnings report from eBay was also particularly strong and sent the stock price 11 percent higher before topping.

Gold and silver declined yesterday and thus continue to dwindle with an unclear trend. Yesterday the IMF issued a report in which it stated European banks' financial problems are far from over and they may reduce their balance sheets by as much as $2.6 trillion. The IMF also forecasted the EU will contract in 2012 by 0.3% and expand by only 0.9% in 2013. This grim outlook may bring down a bit the Euro during today's…Continue

Since last week, news from Europe and Spain continues to dominate the world financial market. This week we saw successful biding of Spain’s short term bond, but today’s 10-year auction would further indicate investor’s confidence level in Spanish economy.
Spain’s latest doubtful bank loan figures added more to country’s economic gloom, since February’s number suggest that the ratio of bad loans jumped to 18-years high to Euro 143.8 billion to 8.15 pct of the…Continue
