EURUSD rebounded in the early part of the past week, much as we expected it might after the consolidation late the week before. But despite a very powerful rally Monday (outside range day), the gains did not have any staying power and the EUR traded softly over the balance of the week, falling to test the 40-day…Continue

"USD: Data Dependency | The FOMC meeting last week continued the transition away from explicit forward guidance and toward full data dependency. But the follow-through in the USD remains lacklustre, despite the move higher in US short-term interest rates. The March 19th FOMC decision was seen as hawkish largely because switching to pure data dependence means the Fed will ultimately have to react if economic indicators come in stronger…Continue

not a broader retracement to the 1.4425-50 area. Although not (yet) negated, this potential is under threat.
The failure to hold above the previous resistance level of 1.3825 raises concern that an…

EURUSD found a support yesterday and turned up above 1.3870 that can be a bullish signal, but for confirmation it's too soon as rally from 1.3745 is not in five waves. For now it's in three legs so it can either be start of an impulsive structure or wave (x) of a complex correction. In either case we have to wait more time as pair is still sideways on "no man's land". We however prefer the bullish scenario because of the larger trend that is still up, but based on current wave structure…Continue

"Outlook in EUR is balanced, but Ukraine may weaken it somewhat
The EUR continues to trade more like a save haven in the face of a crisis in Ukraine than as an asset at risk. This may to some extent reflect capital flight by Russian investors from assets held in the US. And from assets in Russia and Eastern Europe to assets in the Eurozone.
The economic trends in the Eurozone have tended to improve and periphery sovereign yield spreads over bunds continue a relentless grind to…
