    EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 21, 2018

    The euro major par declined abruptly during the US session and reached a fresh new low at 1.1359. The greenback has strengthened across the market in the last hours of trading especially equity in Wall Street paired against yen and euro and consolidated losses due to a bearish decline. Earlier, the price peaked at 1.1472, which has been the highest since November 7 but pulled back and lost momentum, resulting in a correction and lose over 100 pips. The risk-off sentiment yesterday lead the financial markets with the greenback standing strongly against the common currency as well as other main competitors

    The decline is not just about the risk-off sentiment with the euro which also had its weakness that was primarily because of the tension between EU Commission and Italy on the 2019 budget. Moreover, the rhetoric by ECB’s Weidmann saying that policy normalization may take a long time.

    This adds high bearish pressure on the common currency with concerns on the possible sanction for the Italian government from EU being lenient to France on budget concerns. Italy pointed out that growing out may lead to an economic slowdown that may affect the whole of Europe.

    How the EU reacted may add a bearish pressure to the euro if it turns out against Italy, that could add political tension and reach new highs. However, the yields differential may decline abruptly, raising again the euro to yesterday’s high of 1.1472 if the EU becomes more dovish. As for the headlines, there is no data to be released from the Eurozone but existing homes sales data and core durable goods from the US are scheduled today, as well as the weekly crude oil inventory.

    The euro major is moving steadily upward higher than the 1.14 during the Asian session as the sentiment on the common currency shifted by the Brexit optimism and general weakness of the US dollar as markets prepare for the Markit preliminary of November PMI scheduled later from the EU and the US. The euro gained early bids amid thinned market due to holidays. The Asian market supports the Brexit declaration as talked about by the UK and the European Commission for the night that lays out trade relationship prior to the Brexit summer this Sunday.

    The weakened US dollar across the market amid trading concerns of the Fed may tighten and slowed down the pace but keeps the currency afloat. Moreover, the euro supported the ECB minutes that showed the central bank pursuing the QE easing program in December in the background of sluggish Eurozone economic growth. On the headlines, the Eurozone flash manufacturing and services PMI reports will boost and Italian budget concern will still have an influence over the euro in the next few days.

    EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 3, 2018

    The euro major pair is trading close to a fresh midline at 1.1340 during the Monday session after the momentum of risk appetite after the G20 summit over the weekend that allows the broad recovery after the US and China put on hold the tariff increase for another three months as they come to an agreement again. Meanwhile, Italy has been open to negotiating budget plans which can be an obstacle for the euro bulls.

    Over the weekend, Italy’s Prime Minister Conte and European Commission’s Jean-Claude Juncker discussed the deal between Italy and the EU while investors are still uncertain about the deficit spending of Italy and growth forecast until solid data has come out. On the headlines, traders should look out for the Eurozone PMI for the month of November while a drop of the German PMI is anticipated right before it.

    EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 7, 2018

    The movement of the global trades has affected the US dollar being the safe haven and added downward pressure on the euro major pair. Recent headlines about the arrest of top executive and add worries about the US-China relation that reduces appetite for riskier assets on Thursday. The dollar didn’t gain a leverage on the early uptrend but was instead brought down by the negative US employment report, failing to meet the expected figure. It seems that the USD bulls wasn’t swayed as much with optimistic US ISM non-manufacturing PMI data with its sudden uprise.

    Moreover, the shift in the US Treasury bond yield curve that signals potential recession that adds pressure to the dollar and adds momentum to the pair’s intraday positive momentum. The price rose higher than 1.1400 handle, close to the weekly high on Tuesday. It has been moving steadily and oscillating in a narrow trading band during the Asian session. Now, investors are monitoring the US NFP monthly jobs reports that could drive a significant momentum today. Yet, trades still have to be heedful with nearing OMC monetary policy decision in the latter days of the month. Thus, there are less expectations for the day and resume its trading range-bound in a broader trading range.

    The US dollar dropped below Friday session that has further lower by the unexpected monthly jobs report and shows the economy gained only 155,000 new jobs in November. Dovish comments by the Fed governor Lael Brainard and St. Louis Fed President James Bullard support the comments of the postponement of the Fed rate hike cycle in 2019. Selling greenback has boosted the economy over signs of weaker economic growth in the eurozone and pushed for a steady ascent of the euro major pair, ending the week with optimism, just higher than 1.1400 handle. Another report of the third quarter GDP revision shown an annual growth rate of 1.6 percent, slightly lower than the forecast of 1.7 percent. Nevertheless, this had a few impacts on sales.

    Reports on China import and export growth figure published over the weekend that instilled fears of global growth slowdown and chances to postpone the Fed rate hike in 2019. Moreover, worsening trade tension between the US and China, as well as the arrest of top Chinese executive in Canada, has added weight to the sentiment of investors and cap the rally despite important economic reports from the euro or the US. The dollar sell-off will probably continue until the European market hours given the dovish turn of Fed expectation that is favorable for US dollar denominated global currencies in depreciating exchange rate.

    Both of the US and European markets are subdued but we can anticipate for the release of job openings reports to be hawkish that could boost the US greenback broad-based market sentiment. On a technical aspect, the pair was able to clear a significant descending resistance trend line and a part of the symmetrical triangle on the daily chart was established.
