More Risk From Portugal

The euro area has had a rough few weeks: Cyprus agreed a bailout program that will decimate its economy, Italy’s Pier Luigi Bersani, the Democratic Party leader, failed to put together a government, borrowing costs for businesses in the peripheral countries continue to rise, unemployment reached record highs, and purchasing manager indices across the region greatly underperformed expectations. There may be one more piece of bad news to add to the pile before the week is out: Portugal’s budget for 2013 may fall apart, and with it the Portuguese government. During his New Year’s Day address, Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva called on the constitutional court to rule whether the budget, which consists of tax increases and spending cuts worth 5.3 billion euros ($6.8 billion), is legal.

If the court rules against the budget, an estimated 2 billion euros of the austerity measures may be compromised. This would immediately derail Portugal’s progress toward hitting its fiscal targets, only weeks after the country’s international creditors relaxed them. Rejection of the budget could also cause the government to collapse if the ruling Social Democratic Party cannot find alternative austerity measures to get Portugal back on track with its bailout program. It is unclear exactly when the constitutional court will make its ruling, but it may be before the week is out. Concerns over what the court might say could account for an increase in Portuguese two-year bond yields to over 3.8 percent today, before falling back to around 3 percent again later in the day. This isn’t what a country looking to exit its bailout program and regain full market access needs. -FXstreet.com

Clearance here is required to resume uptrend structure towards to next target at 1.3176 (R2) and any further price appreciation would then be limited to last resistance for today at 1.3212 (R3). Downwards scenario: Next challenge on the downside is seen at 1.3083 (S1).

Eurogroup releases statement on Cyprus

Eurozone finance ministers, who are holding talks in Dublin today, have released a statement on Cyprus in which they assure that the country has met all the requirements, allowing for the bailout deal to be completed. According to the document: The Eurogroup notes with satisfaction that the Cypriot authorities have implemented decisive bank resolution, restructuring and recapitalisation measures to address the fragile and unique situation of Cyprus' financial sector. The Eurogroup commends the authorities for their demonstrated resolve in implementing these important measures in a tight timeframe and reiterates its appreciation for the efforts made by the Cypriot citizens over the last weeks.” Eurozone finance ministers expect the bailout fund ESM board to give the green light to the proposal of granting Cyprus a 10 billion euro bailout on April 24. The first tranche of the aid could then be released by mid-may.

Following the release of the statement on the Cypriot bailout, Eurozone finance ministers, who hold talks today in Dublin, announced that the loan repayment for Ireland and Portugal would be extended. Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem confirmed that the Eurozone finance ministers agreed to give seven more years to Portugal and Ireland to repay their bailout loans amounting to 78 billion euros and 85 billion euros, respectively. He also informed that the maturity extension will most probably be approved at the upcoming Ecofin meeting, which kicks off later today. EU Commissioner Olli Rehn expressed hope that Ecofin would give the green light to the measure, which in his opinion is an important step on the road to exiting the rescue program.

Portugal unveils new austerity measures to appease the Troika

Troika inspectors arrived in Lisbon on Monday in order to carry out the seventh review of the country’s bailout program, since it had received 78 billion euros of aid in 2011. Portugal had to come up with new austerity measures to meet the budget gap of about 1.3 billion euros, which emerged after the Portuguese Constitutional court ruled that four of the measures proposed by the PM Pedro Passos Coelho’s government were illegal.

Currently the 2 billion euro bailout tranche is blocked. If the Troika’s review has a positive conclusion, the money will be released and Portugal will also have a better chance of obtaining the 7 year loan repayment extension, approved on Friday by Ecofin. Passos Coelho said today that the additional 600 million euros would come from cuts in healthcare, education , social security and public services and another 600 million euros from reductions of administrative costs. These new austerity measures have been heavily criticized by the left-wing opposition and labor unions.

IMF cuts global growth for fourth consecutive time, European recession likelihood 50%

International Monetary Fund (IMF) trimmed its global growth forecast and urged European policy makers to use “aggressive” monetary policy as a second year of contraction leaves the euro area’s recovery lagging behind the rest of the world. The global economy will continue to grow a further 3.3% this year, less than the 3.5% forecast in January, after 3.2% growth in 2012, the fund noted today, cutting its prediction for this year a fourth consecutive time. Moreover, the Washington-based IMF sees the 17-country euro area shrinking 0.3% , compared with a 0.2% retreat in January, with France joining Spain and Italy in the contraction. “The main challenge is still very much in Europe,” IMF Chief Economist Olivier Blanchard said. “Europe should do everything it can to strengthen private demand. What this means is aggressive monetary policy and what this means is getting the financial system to be stronger -- it’s still not in great shape.” As central banks in U.S. and Japan enact unorthodox policies such as asset purchases to rekindle and reinvigorate demand, pressure is mounting on the European Central Bank to do more. The IMF report describes a “three-speed” recovery led by emerging markets including China, with the U.S. forging ahead and Europe trailing after fighting a debt crisis that has forced bailouts of five countries in the region.

Weidmann opens the door to an ECB rate cut and foresees a lost decade in Europe

Jens Weidmann, the Bundesbank’s president, has affirmed that the European Central Bank could cut its interest rates if economic data continues worsening, according to an interview published by WSJ. Market has been speculating about the possibilities of the ECB cutting rates and now with inflation below the 2.0% it seems more than likely in May or June. However, Weidmann said the ECB “might adjust in response to new information," but he doesn’t “think that the monetary policy stance is the key issue."

"A point that I think is important to make, perhaps less for my central bank colleagues than for finance ministers,” Weidmann pointed, “is that the medication monetary policy makers administer only cures the symptoms and that it comes with side-effects and risks." In Weidmann's words, the important thing is the development of the reforms at the national and European level. The Bundesbank president also stated that the European recovery will take as much as a decade. The opinion is contrary to other European leaders who said that the worst of the crisis is over. "Overcoming the crisis and the crisis effects will remain a challenge over the next decade,” Weidmann affirmed.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Price consolidates after the initial downtrend development yesterday. Price appreciation is possible above the next resistance level at 1.3061 (R1). Break here is required to enable intraday targets at 1.3081 (R2) and 1.3102 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, technically important supportive structure lies at 1.3001 (S1). If the price manages to overcome it, we would suggest next initial targets at 1.2979 (S2) and 1.2957 (S3) in perspective.

Resistance Levels: 1.3061, 1.3081, 1.3102
Support Levels: 1.3001, 1.2979, 1.2957

GBPUSD :

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Down
TREND CONDITION : Downward penetration
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

Upwards scenario: GBPUSD maintained a negative near-term tone though recovery action is possible above the next visible resistance at 1.5270 (R1). Clearance here might initiate bullish pressure and validate our next targets at 1.5287 (R2) and 1.5304 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the downside our focus is shifted to the next support level at 1.5216 (S1). Loss here is required to push the price towards to our next interim targets at 1.5199 (S2) en route towards to final support at 1.5182 (S3)

Resistance Levels: 1.5270, 1.5287, 1.5304
Support Levels: 1.5216, 1.5199, 1.5182


USDJPY :
HIGH 98.367 LOW 97.634 BID 98.064 ASK 98.069 CHANGE -0.05% TIME 09 : 05:30



OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Neutral
TREND CONDITION : Sideway
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

Upwards scenario: Next visible fractal level locates at 98.44 (R1). Violation here is required to provide a signal of possible uptrend formation. In such case, resistances at 98.70 (R2) and 98.96 (R3) acts as next attractive points for the bullish oriented traders. Downwards scenario: Negative developments might be settled below the important support level at 97.81 (S1). Any price action below it would then be targeting support at 97.56 (S2) and final target could be exposed at 97.29 (S3) mark.

Japan escapes censure on the G-20 meeting

he G-20 communiqué provied little fresh headlines to market participants, with the main take away on FX-relate news being the permissive stance towards Japan's monetary policies to beat deflation. The G20 communiqué is basically echoing the same position by the G7 back in February. As noted by Eamonn Sheridan of Forexlive: "Leading into the G20 meeting market concern was that Japan would come under fire for its deflation-fighting policies (which have, as a side-effect, a weaker yen or are have as a central component the aim of a weaker yen, depending on your point of view). It became clear on Friday that Japan had escaped censure from the G20 over its policies, a position made officially clear at the conclusion of the meetings."

The section in the G20 communique that makes references to currencies, stated: "We reiterate our commitments to move more rapidly toward more market-determined exchange rate systems and exchange rate flexibility to reflect underlying fundamentals, and avoid persistent exchange rate misalignments. We will refrain from competitive devaluation and will not target our exchange rates for competitive purposes, and we will resist all forms of protectionism and keep our markets open." It added: "We reiterate that excess volatility of financial flows and disorderly movements in exchange rates have adverse implications for economic and financial stability. Monetary policy should be directed toward domestic price stability and continuing to support economic recovery according to the respective mandates of central banks. We will be mindful of unintended negative side effects stemming from extended periods of monetary easing."

MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Market remains sideways oriented. Next hurdle on the upside might be found at 1.3084 (R1). Break here would open road towards to our interim aim at 1.3097 (R2) and enable final intraday resistive measure at 1.3110 (R3). Downwards scenario: Failure to establish positive bias today might lead to the recovery action in near term perspective. Next immediate support locates at 1.3046 (S1). Break here is required to enable bearish pressure towards to our targets at 1.3033 (S2) and 1.3020 (S3).

Forex Technical Analysis GBPUSD :



Upwards scenario: Upside risk aversion is seen above the next resistance level at 1.5251 (R1). Appreciation above it might lead to the positive intraday bias formation towards to our next targets at 1.5269 (R2) and 1.5287 (R3). Downwards scenario: Negative tendency development might occur below the key support level at 1.5216 (S1). Break here would open road towards to next supportive measure at 1.5198 (S2) and then final supportive bastion could be found at 1.5180 (S3).

Forex Technical Analysis USDJPY :



Upwards scenario: Intraday market sentiment is shifted to the negative side after the losses provided during the Asian session, however market appreciation is possible above the next resistance at 99.89 (R1). Loss here would suggest next intraday targets at 100.19 (R2) and 100.49 (R3). Downwards scenario: Possibility of the price depreciation is seen below the next support level at 99.37 (S1). Break here could provide sufficient momentum and expose our next intraday targets at 99.05 (S2) and 98.75 (S3).

Slovenia Bailout Would Be Spanish-Cypriot Mongrel

The ink on the provisional bailout agreement for Cyprus was hardly dry last month before bond markets shifted their attention to Slovenia, another small euro- area country with a banking problem. The Slovenian government’s borrowing costs subsequently shot up. The fear that Slovenia might be the next Cyprus, with international creditors again forcing losses onto bank bondholders and uninsured depositors, is only partly justified. Slovenia isn’t Cyprus, and its rescue program, when it comes, will probably look like a hybrid between the Spanish-style bailout and the Cyprus-style bail-in.

Spain might get EU deficit target extension

The EU signalized on Tuesday that Spain might be granted two more years to reach the deficit target. Additionally, the President of the European Commission José Manuel Durão Barroso said yesterday that 2013 deficit targets for other EU countries could also be eased. EU sources suggested that the European Commission could allow Spain to have a budget deficit of 6.5% this year and that deadline for it to reach 3% could be extended by two more years. Barroso said that the correction of budgetary imbalances in Greece, Portugal and Spain has been very impressive and that the European Commission is considering extending the deadlines for the correction of excessive deficits also for other EU Member States, as the objective is to combine the adjustment of deficits and debt with growth in the short term.

Yesterday weak German PMI data release (47.9 actual vs. 49.1 estimates) fueled more talk of possible ECB rate cuts in the coming months. Although the EURUSD did close below the 1.3000 level, some analysts found the lack of follow through to the downside impressive and believe the key will be to see how it reacts to data in coming sessions. The main report due out today will be the German IFO which is released at 8:00 GMT. Economic data out of the UK is light in the coming session, with Mortgage Approvals due out at 8:30 GMT. The US session will also be fairly quiet with Durable Goods due out at 12:30 GMT.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Instrument gained momentum on the downside recently, turning short-term bias to the negative side. However upwards penetration above the resistance at 1.3012 (R1) would enable bullish forces and might drive market price towards to our initial targets at 1.3031 (R2) and 1.3051 (R3). Downwards scenario: Fresh low formed today offers an important supportive mark at 1.2987 (S1). Depreciation below it might shift medium-term tendency to the bearish side and validate our next intraday targets at 1.2970 (S2) and 1.2953 (S3).

Downwards scenario: On the other side, any prolonged movement below the support at 1.5225 (S1) might enable downside forces and drive market price towards to supportive means at 1.5211 (S2) and 1.5197 (S3) later on today

Enrico Letta named Italian PM

Italian President Giorgio Napolitano, who was reelected to the post last weekend, has given the mandate to form a government to center-left deputy leader Enrico Letta on Wednesday.After accepting the nomination the new Italian Prime Minister said that he would form "a government of service to the country." He stressed that politics in Italy should regain credibility in order to make head against the crisis. He said that the situation in Italy was very difficult at the moment and that the most urgent issues which should be addressed were unemployment, poverty and problems faced by small businesses. He suggested that the Eurozone should not press so much for austerity and rather focus on boosting growth in the area. 46 year old Enrico Letta is the second youngest Prime Minister in the history of Italian politics. He is the nephew of Gianni Letta, Silvio Berlusconi's close ally and despite his young age he has extensive government experience (he held various ministerial positions in the Italian government and served as a Member of the European Parliament for the North-East region) The cabinet formed by Letta will receive support mainly from Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PDL) party, Letta's Democratic Party (PD) and Mario Monti's centrist Civic Choice.

MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Retracement action is reasonable scenario for EURUSD today. Our focus is shifted to the key resistive barrier at 1.3061 (R1). If the price manages to overcome it we would suggest next intraday targets at 1.3079 (R2) and 1.3096 (R3). Downwards scenario: Possible downside expansion would attack our support levels at 1.3017 (S2) and 1.3000 (S3). However prior reaching our targets, market should manage to overcome key resistive structure at 1.3034 (S1).

Support Levels: 1.3034, 1.3017, 1.3000

Upwards scenario: The recent price acceleration on the upside suggests a possible move higher. Next on tap is resistive barrier at 1.5334 (R1) on the way towards to higher targets at 1.5347 (R2) and 1.5361 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, if the price failed to gain momentum on the upside we expect retest of our next support level at 1.5298 (S1). Clearance here is required to keep the downside extension intact and enable our lower targets at 1.5285 (S2) and 1.5270 (S3).

Upwards scenario: Measures of resistance might be activating when the pair approaches the 99.77 (R1) mark.

Downwards scenario: Signal of instrument depreciation would be created below the next support level at 99.15 (S1). In such case we would suggest next interim target at 98.77 (S2) and then our final aim at 98.40 (S3).

All eyes on the ECB
This week's data releases were disappointing on balance. While economic numbers in the US and China continued to come in on a weak(er) note, the eurozone's business climate readings failed to improve again. The UK's GDP report, however, was a nice exception, showing that the economy returned to growth earlier this year. With German business sentiment figures down again (but overall still signaling growth), the French numbers pretty mixed at low levels and Italy's reading (to be released next Thursday) likely up from depressed lows, EMU-wide sentiment does not show signs of recovery after the weakness of the last two months. This should further challenge the ECB's expectations of a stabilization in activity in 1H13 followed by a gradual recovery in the second half of the year. Coupled with recent dovish remarks from Council members and the "lively debate" during the last meeting, this indicates that the central bank should cut the refi rate (but not the deposit rate) by 25bp within the next five weeks. The exact timing of the rate cut is a close call. But our guess is that June is more likely than May, also because the ECB will have the 1Q13 GDP numbers at hand and will have finished its macroeconomic update procedure by then.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Price stabilized after the yesterday depreciation. Today we see potential to overcome our next resistance level at 1.3049 (R1). Clearance here might pull the pair towards to eventual targets at 1.3066 (R2) and 1.3082 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, market bias remains negative. Risk of further decline is seen below the key support level at 1.3017 (S1). Break here is required to validate lower targets at 1.3000 (S2) and 1.2982 (S3).

Further correction development would open road towards to next target at 1.5402 (S2) and any further losses would then be limited to 1.5378 (S3) mark.

EUR/USD – The week we’ve all been waiting for? ECB and Fed meetings on tap

EUR/USD has started the week off on a strong note, benefiting from the headlines that Enrico Letta has been elected as the new Italian Prime Minister. At one point earlier in the session, the pair had traded as high as 1.3068, but is now back to consolidating near the opening print of 1.3050. According to analysts at FXStreet.com, “After two months of an irreconcilable political deadlock, Enrico Letta, 46, and member of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), was sworn in as new Italian Prime Minister on Sunday. Letta, who has managed to pull together a 21-member Cabinet, while becoming the third youngest Prime Minister since World War II, nominated an unprecedented seven women to his Cabinet. Fabrizio Saccomanni was appointed finance minister, taking on the responsibility to overlook and bring forward much needed economic reforms to the economy.”

The main event later this week will be the upcoming ECB Monetary Policy meeting on May 2nd at 11:45 GMT. Analysts have been pointing to the weak economic data from Germany, and continued dovish comments from ECB officials as a good reason to expect an adjustment to current policy.

Forex Technical Analysis EURUSD :



MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: We are not expecting significant volatility increase today however upside risk aversion is seen above the next resistance level at 1.3076 (R1). Price evaluation above this level would suggest next targets at 1.3094 (R2) and 1.3111 (R3). Downwards scenario: Price regress below the support level at 1.3037 (S1) would increase likelihood of failing towards to our key supportive barrier at 1.3026 (S2) and any further market decline would then be targeting final support for today at 1.3014 (S3).

Upwards scenario: On the upside potential is seen for a break above the resistance at 1.5525 (R1).

Downwards scenario: Further correction development is limited now to 1.5481 (S1). If the price manages to surpass it we would suggest next intraday targets at 1.5454 (S2) and 1.5426 (S3).

If pair gains momentum on the upside and overcome our next resistance at 97.97 (R1), we would suggest next resistances at 98.16 (R2) and 98.34 (R3) as intraday targets. Downwards scenario: On the other hand, successful retest of our next support level at 97.45 (S1) might provide sufficient momentum for the price acceleration towards to interim target at 97.27 (S2). Final aim for today locates at 97.08 (S3).

FOMC Meeting -- a major catalyst or non-event?

The EUR/USD finished the day sharply higher, closing up 0.55% at 1.3166. Intra-day the pair traded as high as 1.3186 but was once again unable to take out the 1.3200 level. All eyes will be on the upcoming US session, with both Construction Spending and ISM Manufacturing PMI due out at 14:00 GMT. Following this data, we will get the Federal Reserve Monetary Policy statement at 18:00GMT. However, with all the hype surrounding the upcoming economic data due out of the US, some analysts are saying not to look too much into the release and the effect on the US Dollar might be minimal.

According to Kathy Lien of BK Asset Management, “Given the recent disappointments in economic data, it will be very difficult for the hawks inside the Fed to justify hardening their call for a rate cut. In contrast, the doves will sing louder about the need for maintain the current level of stimulus. However none of these discussions are likely to appear in the FOMC statement.

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/

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.”

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. http://blog.fxcc.com/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

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).

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.

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.” http://blog.fxcc.com/forex-technical-market-analysis-may-16-2013/

Talking Down the EUR

The euro came under selling pressure today against the U.S. dollar after European Industry Commissioner Tajani tried to talk down the currency. As the head of an agency whose goal is to protect the export sector, Tajani complained that the euro is too strong and called on the central bank to manage the currency in a way that would help exports. Considering that the euro has been in a downtrend since the beginning of the month and has lost over 5% since the beginning of February, some investors may be surprised by the timing of Tajani's comments. However it is clear that underperformance of the Eurozone economy, which is currently in recession is a big motivation for industry officials, politicians and central bankers to make overtures to weaken the euro now versus February. In addition, with the currency in a downtrend, comments such as these will have a greater impact on the euro. As the ECB considers whether to introduce negative deposit rates or purchases of asset backed securities, a weaker currency will provide additional support to the region's economy.

TREND CONDITION : Sideway
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: 20 SMA acts as next resistance level at 1.2886 (R1). Penetration above that mark might trigger upside pressure and expose our next resistive mean at 1.2911 (R2) en route towards to final target for today at 1.2937 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, successful retest of our next support level at 1.2843 (S1) Market would create a signal of bearish sentiment and enable our interim target at 1.2819 (S2). Final support for today locates at 1.2794 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.2886, 1.2911, 1.2937

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Down
TREND CONDITION : Downward penetration
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

Upwards scenario: A bearish tone dominates during the Asian session however further buying interest might arise above the resistance at 1.5281 (R1). Clearance here would suggest next intraday target at 1.5315 (R2) and if the price holds its momentum we can expect an increase towards to 1.5351 (R3). Downwards scenario: If the price failed to establish further positive bias today, likely we will see retest of our key support level at 1.5228 (S1). Break here is required to enable initial lower targets at 1.5194 (S2) and 1.5163 (S3) in potential.

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Neutral
TREND CONDITION : Sideway
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

Upwards scenario: Neutral channel formation remains in play on the hourly chart. Our next resistance level is placed at 102.47 (R1). Strengthening above it would point to resistive structure at 102.81 (R2) onto 103.14 (R3). Downwards scenario: Possible downtrend evolvement might occur below the immediate support level at 102.05 (S1). Clearance here is required to enable our next targets at 101.70 (S2) and 101.36 (S3) in potential.
