Euro/Dollar Stabilised at 1.1260

Yesterday”s Trading:

On Thursday the euro/dollar was touching the support at around 1.1233. Bouncing off the 135th gradient, the euro at one moment rose to 1.1294 after the Bank of England convened. The euro bulls were stopped going further by the US stats. So they had to drop to 1.1260. The euro is trading at this level now. The Asian participants even ignored the Chinese stats this morning. It”s possible that the news will have its effect later on.

The US data showed a fall in unemployment benefit applications. Consumer inflation was worse than expected. This data could reduce the chances of interest rates being raised.

The number of US unemployment benefit applications for the week was 253k (forecasted: 270k, previous: 266k).

The US CPI in March was 0.1% (forecasted: 0.2%, previous: -0.2%). The CPI without food and energy was 0.1% (forecasted: 0.2%, previous: 0.3%).

Market Expectations:

The euro/dollar is stable in a 1.1247-1.1275 range. Since the MA line is heading down and the price is under the balance line, in the first half of the day I expect a weakening of the euro to 1.1230. If the euro/pound falls from 0.7955 to 0.7905. the minimum will shift to 1.1215. There”s no important data out in Europe. In the forecast I”ve gone for a V-shaped pattern.

Day”s News:

11:30, UK construction in February;

12:00, Eurozone February balance of trade;

15:30, Bank of Canada February industrial sales;

15:30, US New York Fed business activity in manufacturing for April;

16:15, US industrial production for March;

17:00, US preliminary consumer confidence from Michigan university for April.

Technical Analysis:

The euro has been trading sideways for fifteen hours. The balance line heads through 1.1283 so there is a risk that it will drop to this level before trading opens in Europe. Only, if the euro rises above 1.1295, it”d be worth staving off sales of the currency until Wednesday. A proper break in yesterday”s minimum of 1.1233 with support from the euro/pound cross will open the road to 1.1170 for the sellers. Today is Friday and so before the weekend anything could happen.
