Mr. Euro quits being a crab


Jun.12.2014

日本語版はこちら

The pick of the day is EUR/USD as Mr. Euro dances against Ms. USA. The pair finally gave up its crab dance and continued down as we predicted. Here is all the art they have been creating on the chart:
Validated a double top pattern, a rising wedge (reversal pattern) and dancing below the Ichimoku cloud with the RSI flattening near the oversold zone.
We are currently looking at short positions below 1.378 with targets @ 1.345 & 1.33 in extension. Alternative scenario would be above 1.378 for further upside with 1.4 & 1.4245 as targets.

 Hot Market Moving News

Markets broadly speaking were down yesterday. With the exception of Mr. Kiwi. The big story of the morning London session continues to be the New Zealand Dollar, continuing its rally after the Reserve Bank of New Zealand hiked interest rates once again during the Asia session.  And if that wasn’t enough for Kiwi bulls, they hinted at possibly a few more before the end of the year!  The spike in Kiwi didn’t stop as European traders decided to jump in on the momentum to put the Kiwi up big time for the Thursday trading session

In the UK the number of people employed grew by 345,000 on the prior quarter to 30.54 million, the fastest quarterly growth since records began, and currently unemployment is at the lowest level since January 2009. All very positive on the employment front but the excuses are being pulled out for wage growth, down 0.7%. . With CPI sitting at 1.8%, even excluding bonuses earnings were up by a paltry 0.9%. It would seem that the economy looks much healthier but our Britt friends sitting  within it are feeling a lot more ill.

In Europe attention is back on the gloomy asset back securities (ABS). Last week the ECB announced a stimulus package to buy “high quality” ABS, which it has yet to fully define or find for that matter. France unveils new spending cuts to curb business costs, public spending and whatever it can set its eyes on. Mr Hollande is getting it in the ear from both sides, he has fallen well behind of the EU’s budget deficit targets which have already been delayed. Furthermore pressure from the ruling Socialist party to change course it mounting and there is a long line of party rebels sticking the boot in whenever they can. Brussels is demanding a reduction of budget deficit to 3% by the next year, this additional €4bn in extra cuts will go some way to achieving the targets, but the target sign on Mr Hollandes forehead is growing in tandem. Michel Sapin, finance minister has gallantly stepped into the breach saying to the dissidents there would be a dialogue “but no negotiation”. No one is sure as yet whether hollow platitudes will be sufficient to calm the angry crowds.

US stocks edged lower yesterday with indexes pulling back from recent record highs. Wall street is struggling for direction currently with moves ebbing and flowing and ending up all but unchanged. The dollar took a bit of a pounding on reduced expectations of an early FED rate hike, markets widely anticipate no news from the FOMC meeting next week. The World Bank in a cautious and typically sedate manner cut global growth forecasts for 2014 to 2.8% from 3.2% surmising that the US winter and situation in Ukraine caused the slowdown, however those issues seem to be in the fast and the globe is now on sound footing. It is all a bit doom and gloom from the US at the moment and President Obama is getting some flack as well. In a Bloomberg National Poll, favourability ratings hit their lowest point in his presidency, with only 44% of Americans saying that they have positive feelings towards him.

Today we have already seen Australian unemployment figures come out broadly in line with expectations. Today is relatively quiet with few obvious market movers, save for european CPI followed by US retail sales this afternoon
