The euro was up against the dollar on Thursday, having past 1.1200. The BoE and weak US stats had a positive effect on the price of the euro.
The Bank of England decided to leave things unchanged with interest rates at 0.5% and asset purchasing at £375 billion. The voting for the interest rate to remain unchanged, changing from 8 for to 9 for. It was this change that changed the fate of the euro.
The euro/pound cross’ effect lasted until Carney spoke. The Bank governor surprised everyone by saying that the next interest rate change is likely to be an increase. The pound won back its losses against the dollar and updated its maximum.
The dollar was under pressure on Wednesday after Fed representative Dudley expressed worries about a strong dollar. Worsening economic data from the States lowered the likelihood of us seeing the Fed up rates in March.
Unemployment benefit applications in the US for the week ending 20th January was 285k (forecasted: 280k, previous: 277k). The country’s PMI fell from -0.2% to -2.9%.
Main news of the day (EET):
The euro/dollar is trading at around 1.1194. Trader attention is on US labour market data. It is expected that there were 190k jobs created in the non-agricultural sector in January, against 292k in December. Before the NFP comes out and by Asian session close, a fall of the euro to 1.1160 is expected. I’ve no thoughts on the payrolls.
The euro/dollar was up to 1.1238 and it was last going for 1.1194. Whist the price is above the MA U3 line it’s risky to purchase euro. We’re likely to see a rebound to 1.1150. Further risks of a fall will come with the NFP which is unforecasted and so will have a powerful effect on the currency market. It could be strong or weak. If we account for the fact that the euro/dollar for the last two days has shot up by 300 points, we can say that a weak value for the indicator has been already taken into account by the market. With this in mind, it’s better to stay off the market today.
The euro/pound was up to 0.7701 on the European session. The euro’s strengthening against the pound was caused by MPC voting for interest rates to be left unchanged in which voting went from 8/9 for to 9/9 for. The growth of the cross lent support to the euro in the EUR/USD.
There is a lack of bear divergence between the AO indicator and the price. This means that a renewal of the maximum could take place before a downward correction. I’ve relied more on indicators of fundamental analysis. Since the NFP is out at 15:30 EET today, I expect to see a correction to the U1 at 0.7663.
The euro/dollar reached 1.1238, with the dollar losing 300 points over the course of two days. If the euro keeps strengthening after the NFP comes out, I see only one target: 1.1359/66 along the upper limit of an upwards channel (dotted line).
We could say the 1.1240 target has been reached. Now we can target 1.1366.
