EUR/USD June 23 – Back down to support on disappointing

EUR/USD  tried to rise up from support early in the week, rising on the weakness of the US dollar. However, the euro has issues of its own and the pair eventually dropped back to support. Do we have a “sell the rallies” pattern?  Interesting US housing data lies ahead.

.  Here is a quick update on what’s moving the pair.

  • EUR/USD climbed up to 1.3615before sliding back down towards 1.36.
  • Current range:  1.3585 to 1.3650.

Further levels in both directions:

EUR/USD Sentiment

  • Weakness in the euro-zone: France only temporarily recovered according to the PMIs, and the streak of German disappointments extend from the previous week. Apart from the disappointing PMIs, tomorrow’s IFO Business Climate will be in the limelight. See how to trade the IFO figure with EURUSD.
  • Yellen’s dovishness weighs on USD: The Federal Reserve  tapered QE for the 5th time  to $35 billion/month as expected. The Fed also lowered growth forecasts, and this no surprise either. After the  strong inflation numbers, some had expected a more hawkish tone from Yellen. Yet she described the data as noisy and left rate hike expectations in the far future. This eventually triggered a big USD sell off that continues into the new week.
  • US focus turns to housing: After both  jobless claims  and the Philly Fed figure came out slightly above expectations, the focus shifts this week to an area which caused worries to the Fed: housing. Today’s existing home sales and more importantly the new home sales numbers will be very closely watched.
  • Eurozone inflation remains weak:  So far, the euro did not lose enough ground even though various European interest rates have fallen after  Draghi’s big announcement. This implies yet another month of low inflation in the euro-zone. We will get  initial German numbers next week. If  the euro remains strong and inflation continues falling, the ECB will have to be even more creative.
