Euro Crosses Trading: Fundamentals
Head of European Central Bank, ECB’s Mario Draghi wasn’t feeling the good vibes in the euro zone in their last non-monetary policy meeting. He said low interest rates are only the symptom, not the cause of an underlying problem across major economies. To add insult to the injury, Euro zone’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) came out in red on Friday May 13. On the news, Mr. Euro dropped his pants against most of his major forex dancing partners.
Note that Mr. Euro is quoted first in most of these major currency pairs. That means more pessimism on EU’s fate, would drag these pairs lower. More optimism will push Euro crosses trading pairs higher.
Euro zone economy above pre-crisis peak
- Healthy household consumption and a rebound in investment
- High debt, weak bank profits, high unemployment and vast excess capacity in the economy
- EU back in deflation
Keep an eye on…
- ECB’s Non-monetary policy meeting on Wednesday May 18
- April’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) on Wednesday May 18
- ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts on Thursday May 19
- May’s preliminary CPI on Tuesday May 31
Note that Mr. Euro has become a new safe haven every time China announces miserable economic data. That’s why despite bad data from Europe, Mr. Euro managed to keep face at least a tiny bit when Chinese data also came in red.
CAUTION: To do a 360 analysis on Euro crosses, you MUST do your due diligence on the economy of cross currencies as well.
When in doubt, consult Invest Diva.

Euro Crosses Trading: EUR/GBP
Big Picture Monthly Chart: The pair is moving inside a downward channel. Currently testing the 0.7850 level which falls on two Fibonacci retracement levels: Long term 50% and short term 23%. The pivot of 0.76 is also pretty important. Downward movements towards these pivots would indicate further long term bounces inside the downward channel.
