EUR/USD: Trading the US Non-Farm Employment Change

US Non-Farm Employment Change measures the change in the number of newly employed people in the US, excluding workers in the farming industry.

US factory orders fall 10.1% – but dollar looks strong

The fall in August is worse than expected, but the dollar is actually gaining, perhaps riding on the previous data release, which is more important. Factory orders were expected to fall by 9.4%. This follows a big leap in July. Earlier, jobless claims came out at 287K, significantly better than 299K expected and breaking the losing

3 comments that show the USD rally has gone too far, too fast

The dollar has been on a roll in recent months, breaking new ground against many currencies, as markets prepare for the eventual rate hike in the US, awaiting us sometime in 2015.

ECB Live Blog: Draghi does not rock the boat – EUR/USD rises

After the ECB left all rates unchanged as expected, the focus moved to Mario Draghi. In a press conference from Naples, the Italian president of the central bank provided a timetable for the new measures, mentioned lower inflation, but mostly passed the ball to the governments’ courts and did not say anything to rock the boat. On this background, EUR/USD

No surprises after the ECB reached its lower bound: rates remain unchanged. EUR/USD awaits Mr. Draghi. Will he give any numbers regarding the ABS program? Will he hit the euro when it’s down? Follow a live blog of the event here. The European Central Bank was widely expected to leave all the interest rates unchanged:

Petition to repeal FIFO requirement from the NFA rule book

Forex regulation in the United States has been getting tighter and we are seeing more consolidation in that space. And now, a petition has come online calling to repeal one of the earlier rules regarding the industry, the one preventing hedging via the First In First Out principle. The NFA’s 2-43(b) rule has been in place for

ECB Preview: Draghi to hit the euro when it’s down? 5 topics to watch out for

The euro has certainly fallen, but this isn’t reflected in inflation. Will Draghi call for patience, expressing optimism but risking a rise in the value of the euro? Or will he keep pushing the “ready to do more” mantra and hit the euro when it’s down, sending EUR/USD to the comfort zone closer to 1.20? Follow

US Dollar Index Weekly Analysis

In the previous analysis we had pointed out to possible weaknesses in the US Dollar Index. While we were first expecting to see a retest of support at 81.5 ahead of the resistance level of 84.5, the Dollar Index simply rallied higher and broke this key resistance level. The follow up article then identified an

UK Construction PMI 64.2 points – in disconnect with the economy

The UK housing sector is going it alone: a score of 64.2 points in the Construction PMI shows that this sector continues growing rapidly, in a total disconnect from other sectors.

Dollar unmoved by strong ADP release

Once again, the ECB finds itself with a great weight of expectations upon its shoulders ahead of its policy meeting today.
