http://wlwsingles.com/ecb-exchange-rates-2/ Euro Zone Decline Continues Last week the risk appetite that had dominated currency markets for the previous two weeks came to an abrupt halt. In spite of warnings from professionals that economic optimism was premature numerous investors and traders adopted the 'green shoots of recovery' theory. The euro to dollar trade rate posted record monthly gains and commodity dependent currencies this kind of as the Canadian and Australian dollars rose. Data that showed the Euro Zone economy declining at its fastest pace ever triggered a return to risk aversion benefiting the US dollar and the Japanese Yen. Yen Supported by Safe Haven Demand A drop in Asian and European shares supplied support for the Yen and also the Dollar as investors sold riskier currencies and returned towards the safe haven from the dollar and yen. The dollar index which measures the dollar's overall performance against six main currencies rose .2 late Friday to 83.161 .DXY affecting the dollar exchange rate. The euro to dollar exchange fee fell .4% to $1.3436 down from a high of nearly $1.37 final week.

Euro foreign exchange reference rates of European Central Bank (ECB), 8 July 2016... All currencies quoted against the euro (base currency)... "The ECB is changing the publication time of the euro foreign exchange reference rates (ECB reference rates) from around 14:30 CET to around 16:00 CET as of 1 July 2016. The ECB reference rates will continue to be determined using the current methodology, which is based on a point-in-time snapshot at 14:15 CET. The new publication regime aims to reinforce the distinction between exchange rate fixings used as benchmarks for transaction purposes and the ECB reference rates that are published for information purposes only. The ECB will monitor foreign exchange market developments closely and expects transaction activity related to the ECB reference rates to decline substantially. If it does not, the ECB will consider further delaying the publication of the reference rates, potentially until the next business day. The changes to the ECB reference rates take into account the recommendations of the Financial Stability Board on foreign exchange benchmarks, as well as the principles for benchmark-setting processes in the EU drawn up by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and the European Banking Authority (EBA) and the principles for financial benchmarks drawn up globally by the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO)..."

SOUNDBITE (English) Mario Draghi, President of the European Central Bank "Let me say just one more thing about the comments about the exchange rate which are now frequently made by lots of people. I think that when they are made by people who are not immediately related to monetary policy, some of these commentaries are inappropriate or they are fruitless." 9. Mid of journalist asking question 10. SOUNDBITE (English) Mario Draghi, President of the European Central Bank "They are inappropriate if these comments are meant to instruct the ECB to achieve a certain exchange rate. This would mean violating the independence of the ECB and forgetting that the ECB's mandate is not to set the level of the European exchange rate, but to set price stability in the medium term." 11. Mid of journalist asking question (UPSOUND) 12. Wide of press conference ending STORYLINE: European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi criticised politicians at a news briefing on Tuesday, telling them it was "inappropriate" and "fruitless" for them to push the ECB to influence the euro's exchange rate. Draghi told journalists in Madrid that there had been "comments about the exchange rate from a lot of people" and that they were "inappropriate" if they were "meant to instruct the ECB to achieve a certain exchange rate." Several European leaders have highlighted the increase in the value of the euro as a potential problem, with French President Francois Hollande going as far to say the Eurozone should target an exchange rate for its currency. The ECB is forbidden by treaty from taking instructions from politicians. Draghi said the bank doesn't target a particular exchange rate but was monitoring the stronger euro's effects on the economy. The Group of Seven leading industrial nations, which includes the US, Japan and Germany, warned on Tuesday that volatile movements in exchange rates could adversely hit the global economy. There have been increasing concerns around the world that countries might manipulate their exchange rates through their domestic economic policies in order to gain an edge. A lower foreign exchange rate can make a country's exports cheaper, thereby boosting growth. But one currency can fall only if another rises - which in turn will create trade problems for other countries. This process could spark a 'currency war' - a destabilising battle where countries compete against one another to get the lowest exchange rate. In a statement published on Tuesday on the Bank of England website, the G-7 finance ministers and central bankers insisted they remained committed to exchange rates driven by the market - not government or central bank policies - and would consult closely when it comes to sharp movements in foreign currency markets. The statement comes ahead of a meeting in Moscow at the weekend of finance ministers from the world's top 20 industrial and developing countries. In light of the recent swings in the foreign exchange markets, notably relating to the Japanese yen, currency issues were expected to feature heavily during the Group of 20 discussions in the Russian capital. Much of the recent volatility in foreign exchange markets has been a by-product of developments affecting the Japanese yen, which dropped Tuesday to its lowest level against the dollar since May 2010.

EUR/USD alert to ECB policy decisions   (24.07.2018)
 
01:57
European traders began the new session, absorbing the survey on business activity from the Markti Economics research group. Analysts had low expectations on PMIs in the eurozone in the context of the lingering trade conflict between the US and EU. However, despite pessimistic expectations, business activity in the manufacturing sector of the euro area is again on the rise. Flash manufacturing PMIs in France, Germany and the whole eurozone surpassed forecasts and came in stronger than the previous scores. On the other hand, preliminary services PMIs slightly undershot the median forecast. One of the key sectors of any advanced economy, the service sector, declined marginally in July but remained at historically high levels. At the same time, the composite PMI both in France and the whole euro area fell short of expectations. The composite PMI in Germany revealed the positive dynamic which came as a pleasant surprise to the market. The euro/dollar pair is trading today at around 1.1700 after yesterday’s spike. Traders are in the wait-and-see mood amid mixed readings on business activity in the eurozone. Besides, anticipation of policy decisions by the ECB also causes hesitation among traders. As a result, the euro/dollar pair has been trapped at the neutral level. Interestingly, the pair was trading exactly at the same level a year ago at the crucial moment of the fight between bulls and bears. A further direction of the euro/dollar pair will clear up on Thursday at the ECB press conference. If the European regulator keeps its dovish rhetoric on monetary policy, the most popular currency pair will resume a downward move. https://www.instaforex.com FX Analytics - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_analytics Forex Calendar - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_calendar Forex TV from InstaForex - https://www.instaforex.com/instaforex_tv Forex charts - https://www.instaforex.com/charts Instant account opening - https://www.instaforex.com/fast_open_live_account Forex Trading Contests - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_contests List of official InstaForex blogs: https://www.facebook.com/instaforex https://www.instagram.com/instaforex/ https://twitter.com/InstaForex

ECB president Mario Draghi cautions United States about talking down dollar
 
01:00:18
Europe's top economic official Mario Draghi has cautioned the U.S. and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin about talking down the dollar's exchange rate, which helps U.S. exporters but could make life harder for Europe and other trade partners. European Central Bank President Mario Draghi didn't mention Mnuchin by name but was quick to note Thursday that global leaders had agreed for years that "we will refrain from competitive devaluations." Draghi's swipe came after Mnuchin said this week that "obviously a weaker dollar is good for us as it relates to trade and opportunities." Those remarks broke with a twenty-year U.S. policy of speaking in favor of a strong dollar. Such comments matters because a weaker dollar can help U.S. exporters by making their goods cheaper against foreign competition. But it's a zero-sum game: a fall in the dollar means a rise in a corresponding currency — the euro rose to a three-year high of $1.25 upon Mnuchin's remarks. The higher euro can become a headache for Europe as it can hurt its exporters and weigh on inflation, which is already worryingly low. In his comments on Thursday, Draghi cited the repeated joint statements by international finance officials in which they commit to refrain from lowering their currencies' exchange rates to gain trade advantage at the expense of other countries. Draghi also said that recent swings in the euro exchange rate with the dollar — mostly up in the past few days — were "a potential source of instability" that required "monitoring." Draghi noted that the exchange rate wasn't a policy goal for the ECB but had to be considered in its deliberations about what to do about inflation. Exchange rates are determined by many factors such as trade flows and central bank policies. Rates these days are not set by governments but by global foreign exchange markets where major currencies are bought and sold. Official comments can however have an impact. One risk, however, is that other countries might retaliate by taking measures that lower their currency. "The ECB refrained from aggressively pushing back against the strength of the euro at their monetary policy decision...but also warned the U.S. against opening a Pandora's box of competitive devaluation," said William Adams, senior international economist at the PNC Financial Services Group. "Put simply, Draghi is warning that foreign countries could follow the U.S. in a race to the bottom if the U.S. tries to devalue the dollar. Draghi made his comments at a news conference following a decision by the bank's 25-member governing council to leave its stimulus programs and interest rates unchanged. The bank gave little additional hint about whether its 30 billion euros ($36 billion) in monthly bond purchases would run past September. Currently, the bank says the purchases will continue at least through September and longer if necessary, leaving the exact end open. The purchases pump newly created money into the economy to raise inflation and growth in the wake of the 19-country eurozone's crisis over high debt in member states like Italy and Greece. Stimulus withdrawal has been much discussed in markets because the eurozone economy is growing strongly. Germany's Ifo index of business sentiment matched its record high in January, and surveys show business activity is expanding rapidly. The eurozone is expected to have grown 2.4 percent last year, while unemployment has fallen to 8.7 percent from a high of 12 percent in 2013. The bank left its key short-term interest rate benchmark unchanged at a record low of zero. Its rate of minus 0.4 percent on deposits it takes from commercial banks was also unchanged. The negative rate is a penalty aimed at pushing banks to lend the money rather than let it pile up risk-free at the ECB. Full press conference, with Q&A session included.

Traders expect nothing new from ECB and BOE policy meetings  (13.09.2018)
 
01:35
The European traders are waiting for two major events for the euro and the pound. Their outcome will shape the further dynamics of these currencies. The most popular currency pair is approaching the level of 1.1600 gradually. EUR/USD pares gains as market participants are not expecting any groundbreaking changes from the ECB officials. On the back of political instability in Italy and intention of some European countries to gain trade independence from the United States, the ECB will likely refrain from adjusting its monetary policy. However, traders hope that the bank will announce the timing of tapering the quantitative easing program. As for the Bank of England, it is also expected to maintain status quo, bearing in mind that the interest rate has already been raised to 0.75%. Moreover, Brexit influences not only the exchange rate of the pound sterling, but also the monetary policy of the Bank of England. Unlike the euro, the British pound remains attractive to investors. The GBP/USD pair was trading near the level of 1.3060. The upcoming publication of the inflation data from the United States is also quite important as it has a major impact on the investor sentiment. https://www.instaforex.com FX Analytics - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_analytics Forex Calendar - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_calendar Forex TV from InstaForex - https://www.instaforex.com/instaforex_tv Forex charts - https://www.instaforex.com/charts Instant account opening - https://www.instaforex.com/fast_open_live_account Forex Trading Contests - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_contests List of official InstaForex blogs: https://www.facebook.com/instaforex https://www.instagram.com/instaforex/ https://twitter.com/InstaForex #eur #gbp #forex_news

USD Price Action Setups Ahead of ECB (EUR/USD)
 
01:02:42
- The first market that we looked at was the U.S. Dollar. The Greenback put in a steady stream of strength after last week’s CPI report, but has since seen sellers come-in ahead of a key zone of resistance that runs from 94.08-94.30. While this could be attractive for bearish continuation, the messy nature of near-term price action makes an immediate setup unclear. We looked at two different areas to watch in order to implement a directional approach on the U.S. Dollar. - We then moved over to EUR/USD as one of the more attractive short-side USD plays. The pair put in a bounce off the top of a key zone of support, producing a higher-low from the swing set earlier in October. Given that we’re coming off of a recent higher-high, this opens the door for top-side continuation setups. A bullish breech of 1.1880 opens the door for a re-test of 1.2000 and then 1.2050. If new highs come-in potential resistance around 1.2134 can be utilized as an additional target. - We then looked at the British Pound, which is rather messy at the moment. While there’s a heavy intrigue of political risk in the pair, there are also economic consequences to contend with. November 2nd brings a highly important BoE rate decision in which there is a realistic chance of a rate hike from the Bank of England; and Tuesday inflation of 2.9% made that rate hike look even more likely. But even with all of that bullish build, GBP/USD remains rather weak while dwindling around in a longer-term support zone. We looked at levels above and below current price action that can open the door to directional approaches but, until then, remain cautious. - We then moved over to USD/CAD, which is beginning to look interesting on the short-side. We specifically focused-in on the recent bear flag formation and the fact that prices appear to be scaling-down that channel. Continued resistance around the 1.2500 handle opens the door for short-side setups, with eyes on stops above prior swing-highs. - We then looked at USD/JPY, which is still working with the big zone of support that runs from 111.61-112.43. Given the fact that prices haven’t been able to show much to the effect of bullish continuation, a bit more information could make the topside theme considerably more attractive. Alternatively, a re-test of support around 111.61 could open the door to bullish plays, particularly if the previous structure of higher-lows around support remain respected. - We then looked at Swissy, which just put in a double top formation when resistance showed around .9838. This opens the possibility of a double-top breakout should another test of that resistance come in. Alternatively, the short side can remain workable, but traders would likely want to let some additional weakness show before looking to trade the bigger picture bearish reversal. - We then moved over to AUD/USD, which could be an attractive setup for bullish-USD continuation. The pair put in a recent break of support and this, combined with the near-term lower lows and lower-highs, can be a denotation that the short-side of the pair is continuing to build interest for a deeper run. We had discussed this setup in yesterday’s Market Talk article entitled, USD Stretches Towards Resistance: Yen, Aussie to Offer Opportunity. - We then looked at NZD/USD, which appears to be incorporating some newfound political risk into price. A downside breech of prior support at .7054 opens the possibility of bearish continuation. Traders will likely want to avoid chasing, as the psychological level just below current prices could bring pause to that short-side run. We looked at using potential resistance of .7100, .7150 or .7200 for short-side approaches in NZD/USD. - We then looked at EUR/JPY, which remains bullish. The fundamental backdrop here is bullish, as well, and prices remain supported at a key level around 131.70-132.05. So, what’s wrong with the setup? What’s wrong is that it’s been in this spot for almost a full month and buyers haven’t yet been able to break prices up to a fresh high. So, while this remains bullish, it hasn’t been bullish enough to yet justify trend-continuation strategies. Traders can, however, look to trade the near-term range, and this can be done with a prior trend-side bias in the effort of having ones cake and eating it too. This can be done by looking to buy range support, while scaling out of the position at resistance. But rather that completely closing and then reversing, traders would keep a remainder of the position on while at resistance in the hope of a continued breakout. - We also looked at GBP/JPY, which isn’t yet in a workable spot for me. I showed a couple of different elements of what I’m looking for before I can look to assign a trend-bias into the pair’s near-term price action. #trading #forex #fx #usd #usdollar #dollar #eurusd #euro #ecb #draghi #gbpusd #usdjpy #audusd #nzdusd #usdcad #eurjpy #gbpjpy #yen #fomc

Euro traders get ready for publication of ECB meeting results  (26.07.2018)
 
02:02
Today the most important event of this trading week will take place – the meeting of the European Central Bank will be held. The results of this meeting will unlikely provide any surprises, so traders gradually sell the single European currency. The euro-dollar pair is declining towards the neutral area near the psychological level of 1.1700. However, yesterday the pair managed to reach the local high at 1.1740, so today it can hold some of the recent gains in case the ECB keeps the ultra-accommodative monetary policy stance. The pair managed to gain ground as the US dollar was weaker. Investors sold the American currency on the back of optimism, caused by easing of tensions in trade relations between the United States and other countries. In particular, the outcome of negotiation between US President Donald Trump and European Commission Head Jean Claude Juncker encouraged traders. During the meeting, the leaders agreed to cancel tariffs with the exception of imports of cars. The euro-dollar pair will manage to sustain the upward momentum only if Mario Draghi surprises markets with plans to taper the quantitative easing program which is unlikely to happen. The ECB Governor will probably remind investors about sluggish inflation and unstable economic growth. Today’s report from GfK proved this fact, indicating that the consumer climate index plunged to the 13-month low. The leading index came in at 10.6 points while analysts expected the reading to remain unchanged. So, market participants expect that the euro-dollar pair will continue falling after the ECB meeting. https://www.instaforex.com FX Analytics - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_analytics Forex Calendar - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_calendar Forex TV from InstaForex - https://www.instaforex.com/instaforex_tv Forex charts - https://www.instaforex.com/charts Instant account opening - https://www.instaforex.com/fast_open_live_account Forex Trading Contests - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_contests List of official InstaForex blogs: https://www.facebook.com/instaforex https://www.instagram.com/instaforex/ https://twitter.com/InstaForex

ECB president Mario Draghi: "Exchange rate volatility needs monitoring as euro tops $1.25"
 
12:04
European Central Bank president Mario Draghi said today "the recent volatility" in the exchange rate needed monitoring, after it was confirmed key interest rates will remain unchanged at record lows. The central bank expects them to remain there "well past" the end of its quantitative easing programme. The euro topped $1.25 as Draghi said the central bank did not target foreign exchange rates when asked about the strength of the single currency. Changes in policy had not been expected from today's announcement, though questions had been building over how the ECB would tackle the euro’s rise against the dollar – something threatening to impact inflation.

USD Weakness Runs into BoC, ECB Rate Decisions
 
01:06:46
- In this webinar, we used price action to look at macro markets ahead of two key rate decisions from the Bank of Canada on Wednesday and the European Central Bank on Thursday. - The first market we looked at was the U.S. Dollar via ‘DXY’ after last Friday’s NFP report. The Dollar had put in a bullish move after setting a fresh 2.5 year low last week, and as we walked into NFP, support had held around the 50% retracement of that move. But another disappointing jobs report was unable to hold-up USD, and prices broke-lower after payrolls were released. It was the thirty minutes after that that were very interesting, however, as prices moved-higher and held support as we moved into the weekend. The fact that the net response after that disappointing NFP print was USD-strength highlights how incredibly oversold the Dollar has become; and that USD-bears may want to be very careful as to where they take on USD exposure. - We then looked at USD/CAD ahead of tomorrow’s rate decision. There is a legitimate chance of a rate hike tomorrow after the BoC hiked rates in July for the first time in seven years. We had looked at USD/CAD being a bull trap ahead of last week’s NFP report, with focus on a long-term support trend-line for a deeper low. That support trend-line came into play around NFP, and a recurrent test to open this week keeps interest around this level. This opens the possibility of topside plays in the pair. - We then moved over to EUR/USD, with the European Central Bank hosting a vitally-important rate decision on Thursday. Many are expecting the ECB to finally provide some element of clarity with what the bank wants to do with stimulus. In recent weeks, we’ve heard from ECB ‘sources’ that have indicated that the ECB may try to kick the can on stimulus exit, for fear that any such announcements would strengthen the Euro. Mario Draghi has been fairly clear with his dovish posture, and it would not be surprising to see some type of strategy designed to prevent or stem a rampant run of strength in the single currency. - We then looked at GBP/USD, which is putting in some strength even with an absence of bullish drivers. The Repeal Bill goes to parliament on Thursday, and this could be giving traders reasons to tighten up bearish GBP exposure. Mark Carney has been fairly clear around the BoE’s dovish stance, and that is unlikely to change until more confirmed data around inflation is seen; and this can keep the British Pound in a vulnerable spot that makes the currency attractive when paired up with a stronger currency. - USD/JPY continues to test longer-term support in the zone that runs from 108.08-108.83. This can be an excellent proxy for the overall theme of USD-weakness along with risk aversion around the North Korea scenario. Should the situation around North Korea continue to develop, this could keep the Yen strong, and eventually that support zone could give way. But under this scenario, Yen strength may be a bit more attractive elsewhere, such as against the British Pound. - GBP/CAD is working on a morning star formation on the daily chart. This could be an interesting CAD-fade play for those expecting CAD-weakness if BoC does not hike rates tomorrow. - EUR/CAD – two very strong currencies matched up together. Near an interesting support zone in the middle of the longer-term major move. - AUD/NZD – Higher low support after a bullish breakout, looking for continuation. The zone around 1.0850 is very interesting. - AUD/USD – Having difficulty holding above .8000. A print of a fresh high beyond .8066 opens the door for bullish continuation, but until that happens, the potential for reversal remains. - NZD/USD – Giving the appearance of trend shift. Looking for a lower-high on the daily/four-hour charts for bearish continuation. #news #trading #forex #fx #usd #fomc #ecb #eurusd #eurjpy #euro #usdollar #usd #usdjpy #priceaction #gbpjpy #gbpusd #usdcad #boc #rates @CVecchioFX @DavidJSong @MBForex @JamieSaettele @JohnKicklighter @ilyaspivak @ForexYell @JStanleyFX @DRodriguezFX @PaulRobinsonFX

ECB / Euro : Mario Draghi's pledge on low interest rates hits euro, lifts bonds
 
30:05
The euro fell, stocks extended gains and bond yields pulled off their highs on Thursday, after ECB boss Mario Draghi reaffirmed a commitment to keep interest rates low “through” next summer, even though he saw inflation picking up by the end of the year. After the European Central Bank, as expected, kept interest rates on hold, Draghi told reporters inflation uncertainty was receding, though he cautioned it was “too early to call victory”. He also sounded an optimistic note on euro-area economic growth, saying it remained “solid and broad-based”. The euro, which had inched higher following Draghi’s optimistic comments on growth and inflation, eased to a session-low of $1.16525 after Draghi reiterated interest rates would stay low for a while yet. The single currency stood 0.55 percent down on the day, while European stocks extended gains after Draghi spoke to trade 0.8 percent higher. Government bond yields, meanwhile, trimmed rises on confirmation of the low rate outlook.

Will ECB hike interest rate  28 11 2017
 
01:53
The most traded currency pair lost ground during the European trading session. Market participants waited for the report of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development on the outlook for the global economy. The report showed that the Eurozone and the United States are expected to post the fastest pace of growth. According to the forecast, in 2018 the EU gross domestic product will continue advancing. Great emphasis was put on the ECB policy stance. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said that the European Central Bank should not hurry to hike the interest rate. The financial watchdog is better to postpone tightening of the monetary policy until 2020 . It became clear that the ECB, which usually prefers to take a cautious stance, will likely follow this piece of advice and will not take any steps in the nearest term. That is why soon after the report was published, bears took control over the euro-dollar pair. This trading instrument is hovering near the level of 1.1890. Analyst expects the single European currency to move further downwards as the German consumer climate index failed to provide enough support to the pair. According to official data, the index rose to 10.7 points and didn’t match the forecast. Meanwhile, the US dollar faces the major event. US President Donald Trump and nominee for the Fed Chair Jerome Powel will speak to the Senate. Probably, the greenback will get the upper hand by the start of the American trading session.

GBP could be sold into rallies, Euro awaits ECB – CIBC
 
07:15
“Sterling rally is going to be cautious, modest and the currency could be sold into rallies”, says Jeremy Stretch, Head of G10 FX at CIBC while discussing the fundamental aspects of Pound-Dollar exchange rate. Stretch believes next 24 hours are crucial for Euro-Dollar pair as market participants would be all ears for ECB commentary on possible tapering of its QE program. Stretch is joined by Tip TV’s Zak Mir and Mike Ingram, Strategist from BGC Partners. Key points: ECB - Dec meeting would be pivotal, Bank could be forced to extend the maturity of the program. This coupled with higher inflation forecasts would create room for cheering the efficacy of the QE program and Taper talk. Markets are heavily short on Sterling, thus the risk of a correction, which is likely to be modest. Talk of Scottish referendum is another risk.

Pre-ECB, NFP, FOMC Price Action Setups (3.7.2017)
 
01:17:39
- The next week and a half produce a series of pivotal announcements for markets. On Thursday, the European Central Bank goes through another rate decision, on Friday we see the release of U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls and on Wednesday of next week – we hear from the Federal Reserve at a rate decision in which much of the world is expecting a rate hike. - As we mentioned, it appears as though this Friday’s NFP print will be crucial for the Federal Reserve’s rate decision next week. This NFP print will likely garner considerable attention as continued strength in the U.S. Labor market could further signal a stronger rate hike path for the Federal Reserve. We first looked at the U.S. Dollar in a bullish, albeit more tame state than what we saw last week. - We then looked at EUR/USD which is working on a near-term range formation. The longer-term setup could possibly be conducive for bullish plays after bears were unable to drive with significant continuation below the long-term zone of support around 1.0500. The near-term side that’s most attractive would be the short-term resistance zone; but the longer-term setup that could garner more attention would be another test of 1.0500. - We then looked at EUR/JPY as a potentially more attractive option for playing Euro-strength. The troubling fundamental aspect of longer-term EUR/USD bullish plays is the idea of being short-USD as the Federal Reserve is getting more hawkish on the prospect of ‘normalization’. This is not the ideal environment to be short the currency (USD); so looking to voice those long-Euro themes against the Yen could be a bit more attractive. - We then moved over to look at U.S. Stocks via the S&P 500. Stocks finally caught a bit of softness after last week’s quick rush of strength. The big ‘activator’ for the bullish move in the S&P last week was a) John William’s comments about a potential rate hike in March and b) Donald Trump’s non-State of the Union Address (Joint Address to the Union). But since then – as in, from Thursday on, stocks have had difficulty catching a bid. This likely has at least something to do with the Fed’s expected rate hike next week. But there may be more at play here. - We looked at USD/JPY for long-USD plays. The longer-term symmetrical wedge is still at work, and we looked at an area around 113.20 that could be attractive for bullish-plays. #nfp #fomc #usd #usdjpy #eurusd #gbpusd #priceaction --- Written by James Stanley, Analyst for DailyFX.com Contact and follow James on Twitter: @JStanleyFX

Pound and euro lowest value in 10 months – what’s next for GBP?
 
05:50
A weekly look into the GBP/USD and EUR/USD pairs by our Chief Market Strategist, David Jones. The political turmoil in the UK and the EU’s public readiness for a no-deal Brexit have put further pressure on the pound. The euro, on the other hand continues to be impervious to volatility. This has been the case for the past few months. GBP/USD The uncertainty around Brexit has pushed the pound lower. Sterling has hit its lowest level since September last year at $1.2960. We saw a bullish divergence towards the end of the week – suggesting the weakness is losing steam – yet the downward trend remains. The level to watch is around $1.33 to $1.3350. Should it be able to clear this mark, we might see a shift in trend. There is a lot of expectation building up on next week’s developments. EUR/USD The ECB will be releasing its decision regarding interest rates on Thursday. No major shifts in policy are expected but it could push some volatility. Meanwhile, the euro has not shown any signs of change, holding the same levels as last week at around $1.1850. Buyers continue to flock in at the $1.16 mark, just like the week before. The European currency is still looking for a breakout from this sideways range.

Euro bulls waiting for US data  (02.02.2018)
 
02:19
On Thursday, the single European currency strengthened against the US dollar. The main support for the euro/greenback pair was provided by the news from the ECB. The representatives of the European Central Bank are trying to convince Mario Draghi to define the accurate timing of the planned changes in the bank monetary policy. Now investors doubt that the ECB will raise the key interest rate in the near future, however, even a hint of this event can strongly support the euro. One of the ECB representatives, Edward Novotny, spoke against the extension of the asset purchase program. It is likely that many members of the ECB Governing Council have the same opinion. According to experts, the QE program winding down will start in September. At the same time, it is too early to expect changes in the key interest rates. Inflation in the euro area continues to slow down, while the ECB set a target for the consumer prices growth rate at 2 percent. Meanwhile, the ECB's monetary policy is much more interesting for traders than for the Fed. Most likely, this supports the euro growth. Davydov comments: «Market participants are optimistic about today's release of the US labor data. It is clear that the unemployment level will remain unchanged, however, the labor force participation rate and the rate of creation of new jobs are expected to grow. Moreover, average hourly earnings will also increase. If the forecasts are confirmed, then the single European currency will drop to 1.2400». Конец комментария Analysts are refraining from giving forecasts on how the euro/US dollar pair will close the week. The single European currency might show a slight correction against the US dollar. https://www.instaforex.com FX Analytics - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_analytics Forex Calendar - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_calendar Forex TV from InstaForex - https://www.instaforex.com/instaforex_tv Forex charts - https://www.instaforex.com/charts Instant account opening - https://www.instaforex.com/fast_open_live_account Forex Trading Contests - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_contests List of official InstaForex blogs: https://www.facebook.com/instaforex https://www.instagram.com/instaforex/ https://twitter.com/InstaForex https://telegram.me/instaforex

ECB hammers home dovish message
 
03:18
For information visit our website currenciesdirect.com or email us at [email protected] Phil McHugh, Trading Floor Manager at Currencies Direct UK. lends us his expertise on a daily basis. Foreign Exchange (FX) Market analysis is a daily market overview and commentary. The European Central Bank (ECB) held its now six-weekly interest rate meeting yesterday (16 April). The biggest surprise was a protestor (who posed as a reporter to get in), glitter-bombing ECB president Mario Draghi in a protest against the ECB’s policies. Once Mr Draghi had shaken off the glitter, he hammered home a dovish message by underlining the bank’s commitment to the full implementation of the quantitative easing (QE) programme. The ECB sees the programme as ongoing until inflation shows clear signs of meeting its objectives. This will need to be over the medium to long-term, so any perceived transient uptick in inflation will be ignored. All talk of tapering or an exit from QE is therefore certainly premature, and the feedback caused the euro to weaken further against the pound and the US dollar. Poor data weakens US dollar The US dollar, although gaining against the euro, broadly weakened across the markets following more lacklustre US data. Industrial production data was poor, showing a mere 0.1% uptick from March. We also saw a fall in new orders for April. The weaker data follows disappointing retail sales data earlier in the week. As the case for a rate rise will be built on economic data and momentum, the recent data should push back expectations for a rate rise in the coming months. We have US housing starts and jobless claims figures out this afternoon (16 April). The market is looking for solid feedback from the housing starts after poor weather led to a weak February reading. The jobless claims will be more closely studied for signals to the health of the labour market. We also have a number of US Federal Reserve members speaking today, and the markets will be taking note of their views on the outlook for potential rate rises, especially given the weaker-than-expected retail sales data earlier in the week.

EUR lacks momentum ahead of ECB meeting while GBP surges to new peaks  (23.01.2018)
 
02:42
This week, traders pay close attention to the policy meetings of the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank. Japan’s financial regulator has already unveiled its plans regarding the further policy stance, so now market participants are waiting for the results of the ECB monetary policy meeting. On Thursday, the ECB Governing Council will hold a meeting. Investors hope that the bank’s officials will confirm their plans to taper the quantitative easing program this autumn. However, some experts are less optimistic as they doubt that the European financial watchdog will dare to change its monetary policy stance. Amid these doubts, the euro-dollar pair failed to extend its gains. The single European currency is trading at the level of 1.2240 against the US dollar. Analysts expect that the pair will be trading flat until Thursday. Earlier, currency strategists forecasted high volatility of the euro exchange rate due to the ZEW reports. However, the published macroeconomic statistics did not make the desired impact. Nonetheless, the released data was quite positive. According to the ZEW report, the economic sentiment index in Germany surged to the highest in 8 months level of 20.4 points versus the expected reading of 17.8 points. The sentiment index for the Eurozone also rose to 31.8 points from 29 points. However, traders paid little attention to this macroeconomic statistics. The British pound is also moving in line with investors’ expectations. The more so, the policymakers of the Bank of England said that the monetary policy should be tightened in the nearest future. Probably, it provided support to the pound-dollar pair that has hit the 18-months peak at 1.40. Additionally, the pound exchange rate is still highly dependent on the Brexit issue. Experts hope that the United Kingdom and the European Union will finally reach a compromise in the nearest future. Anyway, the European assets will continue trading higher until the greenback becomes attractive to investors. https://www.instaforex.com FX Analytics - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_analytics Forex Calendar - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_calendar Forex TV from InstaForex - https://www.instaforex.com/instaforex_tv Forex charts - https://www.instaforex.com/charts Instant account opening - https://www.instaforex.com/fast_open_live_account Forex Trading Contests - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_contests List of official InstaForex blogs: https://www.facebook.com/instaforex https://www.instagram.com/instaforex/ https://twitter.com/InstaForex https://telegram.me/instaforex
