    Will the ECB Kill the EUR Rally?

    The euro has performed extremely well leading up to Thursday's European Central Bank monetary policy announcement. In fact, it may be hard for some investors to believe that the majority of economists are looking for the ECB to cut interest rates by 25bp. Traditionally, expectations for easier monetary policy is negative for a currency but in the case of the euro, since the central bank started dropping hints about the potential for lower rates and economic data confirmed the need for more stimulus, the euro appreciated in value, rising to its highest level against the U.S. dollar in 2 months today.

    The European Central Bank has done a great job of setting expectations for this month's monetary policy meeting. They are known for preparing the market for any upcoming changes in policy with the hopes of minimizing volatility when the actual change is made. Since the last meeting, we have heard consistently cautious comments from policymakers who all sound as if they are warming to idea of more stimulus if data warrants it and it certainly does given the widespread weakness in German business, consumer and investor confidence along with the decline in manufacturing and service activity. - https://support.fxcc.com/email/technical/02052013/

    MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

    Upwards scenario: Next barrier on the upside lie at 1.3185 (R1). Surpassing of this level might enable our initial target at 1.3213 (R2) and any further gains would then be limited to last resistive structure at 1.3239 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, successful retest of our next support level at 1.3156 (S1) might provide sufficient momentum for the price acceleration towards the interim target at 1.3120 (S2). Final aim for today locates at 1.3084 (S3).

    Upwards scenario: Possibility of market strengthening is seen above the immediate resistive barrier at 1.5573 (R1). Price extension above it is required to validate our next intraday targets at 1.5598 (R2) and 1.5629 (R3). Downwards scenario: If the price manages to overcome our next support barrier at 1.5527 (S1), we expect to see further market decline towards to our next target at 1.5507 (S2) and then next stop could be found at 1.5481 (S3) mark.

    Upwards scenario: Pair has settled sideways formation on the hourly timeframe. However potential to move higher is seen above the resistance level at 97.42 (R1) mark. Loss here would suggest next intraday targets at 97.61 (R2) and 97.82 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, our next support level aligns at 97.11 (S1) and possible price regress below it might encounter downside rally. In such scenario we would suggest next intraday targets to be placed at 96.89 (S2) and 96.70 (S3).

    Sustainability of Dollar Rally Hinges on Payrolls

    With the European Central Bank's monetary policy announcement behind us, the focus of the forex market will now turn to the non-farm payrolls report. The newly delivered stimulus from the ECB and the better than expected U.S. jobless claims report boosted the attractiveness of the U.S. dollar against all major currencies. Whether or not the sell-off in the EUR/USD and rally in USD/JPY can be sustained will hinge on Friday's non-farm payrolls report. This week's FOMC statement tell us that that Federal Reserve officials aren't overly concerned about the health of the labor market as they completely ignored last month's sharp drop in payrolls, choosing instead to repeat that the labor market is improving.

    They better be right or else the dollar and U.S. stocks for that matter will come crashing down. Currently economists are looking for payrolls to rise by 140K in April, up from 88K in March. The drop in jobless claims and consumer confidence supports a stronger release and we believe that as long as payrolls rise by 150K or more, the dollar will rally. By cutting interest rates today and signaling that they are prepared to do more, the ECB has set a low bar for tomorrow's NFP release.

    EUR/USD still searching for direction after busy week of economic data

    After what was an extremely busy week of economic releases and central bank monetary policy meetings, the EUR/USD finished the week up 87 pips at 1.3116. The price action remains extremely choppy with neither side being able to sustain any follow through for a substantial amount of time. Many analysts are now wondering whether or not the “risk on” mentality which was boosted by the better than expected US Jobs data will have any follow through going into upcoming week and how will it influence the foreign exchange market.

    According to Kathy Lien of BK Asset Management, “Investors put on their rose colored glasses today and drove currencies and equities sharply higher on the back of stronger job growth in the month of April. At a time when other central banks like the ECB and BoJ are kick starting a new round of easing, the better than expected labor market report will keep the Fed comfortably on hold. The question now is whether the payroll driven rally in FX (and stocks) will last. With far less important data on the calendar next week, we think investors will remain optimistic.”

    What Equity Rally Says About Currencies

    Over the past week, all of the action has been in equities. U.S. stocks powered to new record highs while currencies consolidated quietly. The U.S. dollar weakened against the euro and Japanese Yen and strengthened against the British pound, Swiss Franc, Australian and New Zealand dollars. This divergent price action confirms that there isn't one directional interest in currencies. Part of the reason why currencies have not enjoyed the same type of strong trend as equities is because this is a QE driven rally and with central banks around the world engaged in new rounds of easing, the availability of more stimulus has been ambiguously positive for stocks. Unfortunately these simultaneous easing programs has also clouded the outlook for currencies as investors wonder which central bank will win the race to debase.

    The rally in stocks and consolidation in currencies also tells us that investors are much more interested in joining the trend in equities than try to figure out whether support or resistance will be broken in currencies. Eventually this will change but for the time being we can't ignore the fact that the big moves are happening in other markets. However what stocks have done for currencies is keep them supported - if not for the equity market rally, we would have probably seen a deeper sell-off in the EUR/USD and AUD/USD.

    EUR/USD notches a solid day of gains as ‘risk on’ mentality continues

    In a day where risk assets were primarily well bid across the board, the Euro was able to notch some decent gains, finishing up 81 pips at 1.3159. The initial catalyst which seemed to help push the pair higher was the German Industrial Production (MoM) release which came in at 1.2% actual vs. -0.1% forecast. According to analysts at TD Securities, “In Europe, a solid German industrial production release has boosted the EUR. Not significantly though, as the very well established range that has held since early April remains firmly intact. EUR focus remains on the evolving ECB message, which as we heard last week remains open to another rate cut. They have not signaled any balance sheet expanding programs, however, which overall could leave the EUR well supported.”

    The German data also seemed to give a boost to both commodities and equities, with oil notching its’ highest close since late March and the S&P 500 closing at a new all time high of 1632.59. The recent behavior of the EUR/USD is beyond confusing as it appears to follow risk assets some days and others have no correlation to outside markets at all. Although it must be noted, the EUR does continue to outperform the commodity currencies such as the AUD and NZD. Forex Technical & Market Analysis: May 09 2013

    Forex Technical Analysis EURUSD :
    MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis



    Upwards scenario: Instrument stabilized after the gains provided yesterday. Penetration above the resistive structure at 1.3185 (R1) might encourage protective orders execution and drive market price towards to the next resistive means at 1.3206 (R2) and 1.3226 (R3). Downwards scenario: On a slightly longer term we expect pullback formation. Risk of market depreciation is seen below the next support level at 1.3152 (S1). Clearance here would suggest lower targets at 1.3128 (S2) and 1.3105 (S3) in potential.

    Resistance Levels: 1.3185, 1.3206, 1.3226

    Support Levels: 1.3152, 1.3128, 1.3105

    -------------------------
    Forex Technical Analysis GBPUSD :



    Upwards scenario: Pair has settled sideways formation on the hourly timeframe. However potential to move higher is seen above the resistance level at 1.5549 (R1) mark. Loss here would suggest next intraday targets at 1.5565 (R2) and 1.5581 (R3). Downwards scenario: Possible downside expansion would attack our support levels at 1.5517(S2) and 1.5498 (S3). However prior reaching our targets, market should manage to overcome the resistive structure at 1.5533 (S1).

    Resistance Levels: 1.5549, 1.5565, 1.5581

    Support Levels: 1.5533, 1.5517, 1.5498

    -----------------------
    Forex Technical Analysis USDJPY :



    Upwards scenario: USD/JPY tested negative side the past days, however break above the resistance at 99.00 (R1) is liable to stimulate bullish pressure and validate next targets at 99.14 (R2) and 99.27 (R3). Downwards scenario: Loss of our support level at 96.68 (S1) would open road for a market decline towards to our next target at 98.57 (S2). Any further price weakening would then be limited to final support for today at 98.40 (S3).

    Resistance Levels: 99.00, 99.14, 99.27

    Support Levels: 98.68, 98.57, 98.40

    Will a busy economic schedule next week be the catalyst for EUR/USD?

    The EUR/USD finished the day down 116 pips at 1.3044. Economic data was quiet for the most part but weekly jobless claims out of the US came in better than expected at 323k vs. 3.35k forecast. The US Dollar was well bid across the board, with the majority of action taking place in the USD/JPY which crossed the 100 threshold for the first time in four years. This seemed to help provide additional USD buying against other pairs, and also helped limit advances in commodities which were primarily lower for the day. Economic releases out of the Eurozone in the coming session include German Trade Balance, Italian Industrial Production, and EU Consumer Price Index.

    After the better than expected jobs number past Friday, and another week of improvement in continued claims, some analysts view it as a sign the US Dollar could be set up for further gains in coming weeks. Furthermore, if we see continued gains in USD/JPY it could also be a tailwind and help the US Dollar remain well bid in other pairs. https://support.fxcc.com/email/technical/10052013/

    Japan rests re-assured not labeled 'currency manipulator' by G7

    Over the weekend, the G7 re-assured the market that Japan is not deliberately weakening the yen in order to create a competitive advantage against other industrialized nations. The group repeated its old same lines about its commitment to avoid artificial currency devaluation for domestic gain purposes, while re-iterating its commitment to avoid volatility in FX rates. According to Mike Paterson, editor at Forexlive: "The general consensus seems to be they accept Japan’s arguments that their dramatic easing on monetary policy is aimed at combating deflation rather than weaker currency advantage." Mr. Paterson thinks the last developments in the G7 meeting "should be the green light for further yen selling when markets re-open given that it takes the uncertainty out of the equation but the announcement was hardly a surprise" he said.

    It will be interesting to see just how much weaker it gets in the early stages. Failure to drop too far will suggest that there rightly should be an air of caution after such rapid falls. But as the say goes, all that glitters is not gold, and US, Canada and Germany were all suspiciously more notorious on voicing out a closer monitoring over Japan's next policy actions. As Mr. Paterson rightly points out, "behind the scenes of G7, sure there is not such a united front as they wish to portray." U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had something to say on yen weakness: “We’ll keep an eye on that”, suggesting that any signs of currency manipulation by Japan will be watch very closely, adding that Japan had “growth issues.” Japan's Finance Minister Mr. Aso confirmed to media reporters that no criticism was noted on Japan’s monetary easing. https://support.fxcc.com/email/technical/13052013/

    MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

    Upwards scenario: Neutral hourly studies point towards further consolidation, with a break of next resistive structure at 1.3011 (R1) is required to spark stronger upside action. In such scenario we would suggest our next initial targets at 1.3036 (R2) and 1.3062 (R3). Downwards scenario: Medium-term bias is clearly negative. Possible progress below the initial support level at 1.2957 (S1) might expose our intraday targets at 1.2934 (S2) and then 1.2909 (S3).

Downwards scenario: Next support level is seen at 1.5334 (S1), any penetration below it might activate further downside pressure and enable lower target at 1.5310 (S2).

    Schäuble suggests revising EU treaties to make way for banking union

    German finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble told the Financial Times today that the banking union could not be completed without a modification of EU treaties. The process of changing them however could last several months or even years. According to Schäuble the existing treaties “do not suffice” to allow for forming a strong central resolution authority. Therefore he warned against making promises which the EU cannot keep, as they would directly affect its credibility.

    “The EU does not have coercive means to enforce decisions” Schäuble said. “What it has are responsibilities and powers defined by its treaties.” A change to the treaties would provide a better separation of the ECB's monetary and supervisory functions. The German finance minister is conscious that such changes might take a long time, so he proposed a two-step process consisting of a resolution mechanism based on a network of national authorities as well as a network of resolution funds. Even though Schäuble acknowledges that such a structure would not be trons enough in the long term, he believes that it would allow to buy time and create the base for reaching the final objective: a European banking union, which encompasses the entire interior market. https://support.fxcc.com/email/technical/14052013/

    EU gives the go-ahead to Spanish bank restructuring plan

    The European Commission announced on Wednesday its approval of the plans to restructure Spain's four nationalized banks: Bankia, Nova Caixa Galicia, Catalunya Caixa and Banco de Valencia. Vice President of the European Commission responsible for Competition Policy Joaquín Almunia said in the European morning that the injection of 37 billion euros of the bank rescue would require a 60% reduction in the size of the nationalized financial institutions by 2017.

    Joaquín Almunia informed that during the negotiations with Spanish authorities and the banks in question it was established that the recapitalization funds would be distributed as follows: 18 billion euros for Bankia, 9 billion for Catalunya Caixa, 5.5 billion for Nova Caixa Galicia and 4.5 billion for Banco de Valencia. The four nationalized financial institutions should abandon conceding loans for high risk activities and should transfer 45 billion euros of toxic assets to the newly created bad bank. Catalunya Caixa and Nova Caixa Galicia are expected to be sold before 2017.

    Upwards scenario: Next on tap, resistance level at 1.2962 (R1). A break higher could open the door for an attack to next target at 1.2980 (R2) and final immediate resistance is seen at 1.2996 (R3). Downwards scenario: Further retracement formation on the medium-term might occur below the support level at 1.2939 (S1), break here is required to put focus on actual targets at 1.2921 (S2) and 1.2903 (S3).

    BoE sees a modest and sustained recovery over the next three years

    The quarterly Inflation Report released by the Bank of England on Wednesday suggests that UK inflation should rise above 3% in June and that it will possibly remain above the 2% target for the next two years. As for the GDP, it is “likely to pick up gradually over the next year or so, supported by past asset purchases, an easing in credit conditions aided by the Funding for Lending Scheme, and a continuing improvement in the global environment.”

    The BoE MPC expects GDP growth of 0.3% in the first quarter of 2013. In the current quarter they see quarterly GDP expanding by 0.5%, while year-on-year GDP is projected to grow by 2.2% (compared with the previous forecast of 2%). Nevertheless, the MPC recognizes that the recovery is still “weak and uneven.” The report states that in the light of the growth and inflation forecasts more stimulus might be required. No rate hike should be carried out before 2016 however. Following the release of the report, BoE Governor Mervyn King presented it at a press conference. He pointed out that there are many obstacles on UK's road to recovery, the most important being the Eurozone crisis and rising unemployment. He stressed that UK policymakers should continue their efforts to boost the recovery as “this is no time to be complacent.” Forex Technical & Market Analysis: May 16 2013

    Bearish developments on EUR/USD charts continue to take shape

    It was a rough week for the EUR/USD, as continued speculation of the Fed tapering QE purchases and worries of economic growth in Europe continued to put pressure on the pair throughout the week. When all was said and done, the pair finished the week down 0.90% to close at 1.2838. Market participants will be focusing on a number reports this week including testimony from Fed Chairman Bernanke, as well as speeches by some regional Fed officials. According to Greg Gibbs, FX Trading Strategist at RBS,“the market will be looking closely at the Fed commentary this week. Bernanke's testimony to Congress on Wednesday is the main focal point, but there are important speeches by doves Evans and Dudley before then. As key supporters of maintaining the current $85bn pace of asset purchases, any shift in their tone will be seen as evidence that the consensus and Bernanke's views have shifted.”

    He went on to add, “the commentary by Fed Watcher Hilsenrath just over a week ago and by a Fed dove Williams on Thursday last week has got the market thinking about potential for QE tapering in the summer, which puts into play the 19 June, 31 July or 18 September meetings. The June meeting includes a Bernanke press conference and staff projects, as does the September meeting.”

    Upwards scenario: Bullish market sentiment is slightly improved yesterday however further appreciation needs to clear barrier at 1.2855 (R1) to enable our interim target at 1.2882 (R2) and then any further gains would be limited to last resistance at 1.2908 (R3). Downwards scenario: If the price manages to overcome our next support barrier at 1.2818 (S1), we expect to see further market decline towards to our next target at 1.2800 (S2) and then next stop could be found at 1.2780 (S3) mark.

    Upwards scenario: Next immediate resistive barrier is seen at 1.5209 (R1). If instrument gains momentum on the upside and manage to overcome it we would focus on the intraday targets at 1.5241 (R2) and 1.5276 (R3) in potential. Downwards scenario: Any downside extension is limited now to the next support level at 1.5163 (S1). Break here is required to open a route towards to next target at 1.5141 (S2) and then any further easing would be targeting final support at 1.5117 (S3).

Downwards scenario: Pair looks likely to test our supportive means today. Devaluation below the support at 102.62 (S1) would initiate bearish pressure. On the way our next interim support at 102.39 (S2) en route to final target at 102.07 (S3).

    Fed-Speak to dominate EUR/USD trading in coming days

    The EUR/USD was able to claw back a small portion of its losses suffered last week, finishing the day up 64 pips at 1.2884. Economic news was light on the session with European markets closed and no releases out of the US. Market participants will be expecting volatility to really pick up later in the week when we see Fed Chairman Bernanke’s testimony to Congress, the release of the most recent FOMC minutes, and a number of other regional Fed speakers on the wires. Given the recent market buzz of the prospects of Fed tapering QE, the next few days could help set a more established trend for the pair as we near month end.

    According to Marc Chandler, Head Currency Strategist at BBH, “in the US, the FOMC minutes from the April 30/May 1 meeting will be released on Wednesday. Markets will be parsing them very thoroughly for any clues about QE tapering. Those minutes will be sandwiched between another heavy slate of Fed speakers including Bullard and Dudley on Tuesday, Bernanke testimony on Wednesday, and Bullard again on Thursday. Bernanke’s testimony will be the most important, of course. While we expect the key Fed officials to signal steady as she goes with regards to QE, we acknowledge that markets could see some turbulence.” Other analysts also mention to keep a focus on Europe, as we will see a number of important PMI releases from the region later in the week as well as speeches from important European officials including ECB President Draghi.

    Upwards scenario: On the upside market might get more incentives above the immediate resistive barrier at 1.2905 (R1). If the price manages to overcome it we would suggest next intraday targets at 1.2930 (R2) and 1.2955 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, possible downtrend development may encounter supportive measure at 1.2860 (S1). Penetration through this level would targeting then supportive means at 1.2836 (S2) and 1.2811 (S3) later on today.

Downwards scenario: On the other hand, pair keeps the consolidation pattern intact. We see potential to positively retest supportive barrier at 102.19 (S1).

    Bernanke testimony, FOMC minutes, & European data to heighten EUR/USD volatility

    The EUR/USD finished the day moderately higher, closing up 25 pips at 1.2905 ahead of what is sure to be a volatile session with Fed Chairman Bernanke set to testify in front of congress at 14:00GMT. Furthermore, we will also see the release of the most recent FOMC minutes at 18:00GMT. According to Sean callow of Westpac,“The US calendar is dominated by Fed chairman Bernanke’s testimony on “The Economic Outlook” to the Joint Economic Committee of Congress (10am NY time). He will deliver a prepared text then take numerous questions from both friendly and hostile lawmakers. Volatility over the course of his appearance seems assured, as markets try to quickly decide whether Bernanke is trying to dampen talk of reducing QE some time soon, is affirming such a view or remaining non-committal. USD should gain in the latter two scenarios but we still expect the first outcome – Bernanke arguing that it is too soon to be confident that the economy is recovering sustainably.”

    Other analysts are pointing towards European economic data as the additional catalysts for the EUR/USD which may help to break the recent range bound activity. Market participants should be aware that later in the week will see a number of European PMI figured which could also heighten volatility. Forex Technical & Market Analysis: May 22 2013

    Upwards scenario: Instrument stabilized after the gains provided yesterday. Penetration above the resistive structure at 1.2926 (R1) might encourage protective orders execution and drive market price towards to the next resistive means at 1.2940 (R2) and 1.2955 (R3). Downwards scenario: Measures of support might be activating when the pair approaches the 1.2905 (S1). If it continues to extend its weakening below it we expect next targets to be exposed at 1.2889 (S2) and 1.2877 (S3) later on.

Downwards scenario: Price regress below the support level at 1.5128 (S1) would increase likelihood of failing towards to our key supportive barrier at 1.5110 (S2) and any further market decline would then be targeting final support for today at 1.5092 (S3).

Downwards scenario: Our next support level at 102.44 (S1) limits possible recovery attempts for now.

    FOMC minutes show members open to tapering QE

    The minutes from the April 30 and May 1 FOMC meeting showed that "a number" of officials expressed willingness to taper the bond buying program as early as the June meeting "if the economic information received by that time showed evidence of sufficiently strong and sustained growth". However, according to the minutes, views differed about what evidence would be necessary and the likelihood of that outcome. One Fed official wanted to stop the bond purchases immediately, while another wanted to increase the size of the program. Despite the discrepancies, most members emphasized importance of being prepared to adjust purchases either up or down.

    The minutes also revealed the Fed started a review of their exit strategy principles last released to the public in 2011. The broad principles appeared generally still valid, but the bank will probably need greater flexibility regarding the details of implementing policy normalization. The greenback surged against majority of its person Wednesday after Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke hinted at possibilities of the central bank slowing its bond purchases. Initially, dollar briefly dropped across the board after Bernanke said monetary stimulus is helping the U.S.economy recovery. Forex Technical & Market Analysis: May 23 2013

    Will German GDP/IFO be the catalyst to take EUR/USD back above 1.3000?

    The EUR/USD finished the session sharply higher, mainly benefiting from a better than expected European PMI data print. It will be another busy upcoming economic session in Europe, with German GDP due out at 6:00GMT, followed by German IFO at 8:00GMT. One has to ask, if the print comes in better than expected, will it be enough to take the pair back above the critical resistance level of 1.3000(the 20dma)? According to analysts at Rabobank, “there was a modestly firmer tone, maybe a ‘less downbeat tone’ is a better description because despite improvement they remain sub-50, to the suite of eurozone PMIs. In Germany, the Manufacturing PMI gained to 49.0, up from April’s 48.1 and the Services PMI ticked up to 49.8 from 49.6. France’s Manufacturing PMI increased to 45.5 from 44.4 and the Services PMI held steady at 44.3. For the eurozone as a whole, the Manufacturing PMI gained to 47.8 from April’s 46.7.”

    They went on to add,“there’s no particularly strong message in these data but they are consistent with our thinking – and that of the ECB – that Europe’s economy will show some improvement as this year unfolds. Calmer financial market conditions should pay a positive dividend to the real economy over time.” The ‘risk on’ vs. ‘risk off’ sentiment of the equity market will also be something to keep in mind. It was interesting to see the EUR/USD go well bid on a day when the Nikkei dropped 7%. However, its hard to imagine this correlation continuing should US equities start a serious correction. Furthermore, some analysts believe that just because the recent EU PMI data came in better than expected, EU officials will not deviate from the dovish rhetoric which has been plentiful in recent weeks. https://support.fxcc.com/email/technical/24052013/

    EU gives the go-ahead to Spanish bank restructuring plan

    The European Commission announced on Wednesday its approval of the plans to restructure Spain's four nationalized banks: Bankia, Nova Caixa Galicia, Catalunya Caixa and Banco de Valencia. Vice President of the European Commission responsible for Competition Policy Joaquín Almunia said in the European morning that the injection of 37 billion euros of the bank rescue would require a 60% reduction in the size of the nationalized financial institutions by 2017.

    Joaquín Almunia informed that during the negotiations with Spanish authorities and the banks in question it was established that the recapitalization funds would be distributed as follows: 18 billion euros for Bankia, 9 billion for Catalunya Caixa, 5.5 billion for Nova Caixa Galicia and 4.5 billion for Banco de Valencia. The four nationalized financial institutions should abandon conceding loans for high risk activities and should transfer 45 billion euros of toxic assets to the newly created bad bank. Catalunya Caixa and Nova Caixa Galicia are expected to be sold before 2017.

    Forex Technical & Market Analysis FXCC May 28 2013

    As last week’s volatility in Japanese markets demonstrates central banks do not have it all their own way. Unfortunately for Japan the risk remains that policy makers spur higher yields without accompanying growth, an outcome that would be highly undesirable, especially if it hits economic activity. Equity markets and risk assets in general came under pressure and safe havens found long lost bids, with core bond yields moving lower and JPY and CHF strengthening. The heightened volatility in markets was also partly triggered by concerns about the timing of the tapering off of Fed asset purchases, with Fed Chairman Bernanke setting the cat amongst the pigeons by with commenting about the possibility of reducing asset purchases over the next few meetings. Additionally weaker than forecast Chinese manufacturing confidence data came as another blow to markets. While the market reaction looked a tad overdone in it is notable that the dichotomy between growth and equity market performance has widened over recent weeks.

    This week is likely to begin on a calmer note, with holidays in the US and UK today. Data releases in the US will remain encouraging , with May consumer confidence likely to move higher although US Q1 GDP is likely to be revised slightly lower to 2.4% due an inventories hit. In Europe, while the trajectory of recovery is starting from a much lower base there will be some improvement in business confidence in May while inflation will be well contained at 1.3% YoY in May, an outcome that will maintain room for more European Central Bank policy easing. In Japan a sixth straight negative CPI reading will highlight jus how difficult the job is for the Bank of Japan to meet its inflation target. The JPY was a major beneficiary of last week’s volatility helped by short covering as speculative positioning in the currency reached its lowest level since July 2007. A calmer tone to markets ought to ensure that JPY upside will be limited and USD buyers are likely to emerge just below the USD/JPY 100 level. In contrast the EUR has been surprisingly well behaved despite the fact that speculative EUR positioning has also dropped sharply over recent weeks. While the overall trend is lower EUR/USD will find some support on any dip to around 1.2795 this week.

Downwards scenario: Any downside penetration is limited now to the initial support level at 1.2883 (S1).

    EUR Succumbs to Rise in U.S. Yields

    Demand for U.S. dollars kept pressure on the euro and all major currencies throughout the North American session. Between the recovery in U.S. stocks and the surge in U.S. yields, the dollar is one of the most coveted currencies. Even though we haven’t seen a major pickup in foreign demand for U.S. dollars, particularly from Japan, the longer U.S. yields hold above 2% (10 year yields are at 2.15%), the more tempting it will be for foreign investors. The lack of U.S. data at the front of the week means the lack of threat to the dollar rally. As long as the good news continues to flow in, the dollar will remain in demand. How well the greenback performs against various currencies will of course depend on how economic data from those countries fare. We have seen some recent improvements in Eurozone data that reduces the chance of additional easing by the European Central Bank. German labor market numbers are scheduled for release tomorrow and an upside surprise will keep the EUR above 1.28.

    The main driver of EUR/USD weakness has been the divergence between U.S. and Eurozone data – one was improving as the other was deteriorating. If we start to see improvements in the Eurozone economy, then the dynamics affecting the euro will start to change to benefit of the currency. Unfortunately based on the latest PMI numbers, there’s a risk of a downside surprise. According to the report, staffing levels fell for the first time since January with job shedding seen in both the manufacturing and service sectors. If unemployment rolls climb in the month of May, the EUR/USD could extend its losses but even then, the losses could be contained to 1.28, a level that has held for the past month. We probably need to see back to back weakness in Eurozone data (German unemployment and retail sales) for 1.28 to be broken.

Downwards scenario: On the other hand, prolonged movement below the initial support level at 102.01 (S1) might trigger protective orders execution and drive market price towards to supportive means at 101.82 (S2) and 101.61 (S3).

    OECD: Global economy is moving forward at multiple speeds

    In its biannual Economic Outlook report, published on Wednesday, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development reduced the global growth outlook to 3.1% from the previous estimate of 3.4%. It expects the US and the Japanese economies to improve this year, suggesting at the same time that the Eurozone will continue to lag which might have “negative implications for the global economy."

    The OECD cut the Eurozone growth forecast to -0.6% from -0.1% estimated in November 2012, warning that "activity is still falling, reflecting ongoing fiscal consolidation, weak confidence and tight credit conditions, especially in the periphery." The Eurozone economy should rebound to 1.1% in 2014. The OECD also urged the ECB to seriously consider implementing QE and introducing negative deposit rates in order to stimulate recovery in the area. China, which already saw its growth outlook reduced on Tuesday by the IMF, is expected to grow by 7.8% this year, down from a previous estimate of 8.5%. The organization was more upbeat about the US, which is projected to grow by 1.9% in 2013 and by 2.8% in 2014. Japan's growth forecast was hiked to 1.6% from 0.7%, with the prospect of a 1.4% gain next year, owing to the BoJ's implementation of fiscal and monetary stimulus programs.
