TD Securities: FX: CFTC Weekly Report-Week Ending Tuesday, March 4th

"IMM positioning in the major currencies was little changed in the week overall for the most part. The biggest and most obvious shift was in EUR positioning, with CTAs and speculative investors boosting net long EUR positioning ahead of the ECB meeting from the net long of +13.9k contracts in the week through February 25th to a net long of +23.4k contracts this week. That helped the implied aggregate long USD position held by the market slide to USD 11.2bn, the lowest since early…

TD Securities: USDBRL Weekly Technical Outlook

The BRL’s recent out-performance may be coming to an end. USDBRL appears to have based and reversed from the 2.30 area this week—right where we have highlighted strong USD support in recent updates—around the 50% retracement of the 2.18/2.45 rally and the 200-day MA. The reversal looks technically strong—a bullish…

TD Securities: AUDUSD Weekly Technical Outlook

The AUD is looking good in technical terms on a number of fronts. The AUD’s overall strength is well reflected in the AUDUSD chart. The daily patterns are bullish—break out from the February bull flag channel (implies about 400 ticks of upside potential from the high 0.89 area)—and pressure on the neckline break…

RBSM:AUD is likely to squeeze out shorts and may rise to .92/93

"AUD is likely to squeeze out shorts and may rise to .92/93

As discussed in recent reports, the Australian economic data has been much stronger than expected over the last week. The RBA Governor has attempted to discourage the AUD from rising by saying it is historically high. He repeated that today to parliament. However, he has been reluctant to say more.

He has emphasised that the RBA currently expects a long period of stable rates. In fact he has suggested…

RBSM:Weak data in the US is being ignored, Fed's Beige Book more optimistic

"US economic reports were generally weaker than expected on Wednesday, including lower ADP employment revised down from 175K to 127K in Jan, rising a little to 139K in Feb, weaker than 155K expected. Furthermore the ISM services report showed a large drop in the employment component from 56.4 in Jan to 47.5 in Feb, a low since 2010. The data suggests significant downside risk for the payrolls report on Friday.

 However, there was little reaction in the US rates market. This suggests that…

FOREX forecast 06.03.2014

EUR has tested 1.3700 support yesterday, but couldn't progress over 1.3750, finally closed the day close to 1.3730. Worse US data din't not affect the price at all, market completely ignored that and all eyes are on the ECB for today. If we are not able to progress over 1.3770 today, the pair will become under a heavy selling pressure with targets around 1.3600 and maybe below.Only above 1.3770 we shall try to reach 1.3825-30 which has rejected the price several times. If that is broken too…

BBH CurrencyView: Dollar Mixed Ahead of Key Events This Week

"The euro is a dog.  Instead of deriving support from the easing of tensions in Ukraine/Crimea and the best euro zone service PMI since June 2011, as well as a surge in January retail sales (1.6%, reversing the revised 1.3% decline in December), the euro has been sold to new lows for the week and nearing the low seen before last week's February inflation report…

FOREX forecast 05.03.2014

EUR is still consolidating below 1.3770. All are waiting for the next move from the ECB. Closing today below 1.3730 will make bulls' situation even more complex. Traders still avoid going SHORT and are very careful. Today more of the same can be expected with testing 1.3700 and 1.3770, which are the support and resistance levels. We have to wait for the ECB next move to see a breaking out of this range.

GOLD bounced back by the Weekly resistance 1354 and tested 1331 support area. For…

FOREX forecast 04.03.2014

EUR moved in a narrow range yesterday until american serrion, then it slided a little more on better US data and is currently trading near the well known support of 1.3720. We were not able to close the day below that support so the chances of recovery to the upside still present. Upside will be restored on H4 close above 1.3770 with first resistance 1.3830 and second one 1.3890. I expect the pair to find support at 1.3720 and at 1.3700 and finally 1.3670 in the next 2-3 days. Only breaking…

JP Morgan - Another key test for the broad USD

JP Morgan - "The setup for the broad USD picture weakened over the past week while presenting another important test for the short term view. In this regard, the failure against key initial resistance levels has shifted the focus back to critical support levels which should define whether a recovery phase or deeper retracement can develop. While the current oversold framework favors a recovery phase, the late-week decline raises some doubts. In turn, we highlight the key markers that should…
