EURUSD: pair ready to exit the consolidation range

On Wednesday the 19th of September, trading on the euro closed slightly up. Throughout the day, the single currency lacked any pronounced direction. The main drivers behind yesterday’s movements came from news about Brexit, the US-China trade war, and delays to the NAFTA deal. The currency pair spent the day trading within a range of 1.1662 – 1.1715.

EURUSD: pair still trading within Friday’s range

On Tuesday the 18th of September, trading on the euro closed down. Volatility was high throughout all the trading sessions. In the first half of the day, the euro rose to 1.1710. It then dropped to 1.1652 in the US session on the back of a rise in US10Y bond yields to 3.06%. Demand for the US dollar increased after China announced that it would be bringing in new trade tariffs from the 24th of September on more than 5,200 US goods worth 60bn USD.

Stock markets rebound in the US and EU after assurances from the ECB on its future policies despite slight slowdown in Eurozone growth

Stock markets in the US opened on Monday around the same level as Friday’s close, which marked a week of gains recovering the losses of the previous week. The S&P500 closed at 2905, up 1.21% on the previous week, the DJIA at 26155 (+0.94%), and the NASDAQ at 8010 (+1.39%) in a week in which Apple presented its new products in a presentation that disappointed some analysts. There are renewed threats of sanctions from the US against Chinese imports, with China threatening to stop any further trade talks in the event of new sanctions. This is bad news for global trade and, possibly, for global demand, yet stock markets rose on the belief that the tariffs are being used more as a negotiation tool than as a weapon to unleash a full-blown trade war.

EURUSD: euro bulls ready to test the 1.1722 resistance

On Monday the 17th of September, trading on the euro closed up. The rate recovered to 1.1669 (67 degrees). I reckon that the pair’s growth was triggered by the pound, which rose to 1.3164 against the greenback. The pound got some support following reports that progress is being made in the Irish border talks.

EURUSD: pair consolidating around the lower line of the channel

On Friday the 14th of September, trading on the EURUSD pair closed down. The greenback made gains across the board on the back of comments from Chicago Fed President Charles Evans as well as the closing of positions on risky pairs with JPY that came after news of new US sanctions against China. This brought the euro down to 1.1621.
