Factors Support Euro and British Pound
Looking at the upcoming week, technical factors are
indicting the possibility that the Dollar will once again feel downside
pressure.Traders have priced in an
interest rate cut by the European Central Bank and the Bank of England so there
should be no surprise in these markets.The key to the marketâ€™s direction will most likely be the U.S.
Presidential election on Tuesday.Overnight
trading indicates light volume and low volatility.
The European Central Bank is expected to cut its key
interest rate this week.Traders are
mixed as to whether it will be 25 or 50 basis points.The threat of a global recession expanding
throughout the Euro Zone is a negative factor as well as the possibility of
credit issues with Eastern European emerging markets. Technically, the EUR USD
posted a higher close last week and completed a closing price reversal up.This chart pattern will be confirmed if the
market can take out last weekâ€™s high.

key interest rate by 50 basis points on November 6.With the U.K. in a recession, any good news
regarding housing, mortgages, employment and consumer demand will be greatly appreciated.

Eastern European credit issues.Traders

in the USD CAD could lead to follow through selling this week.Watch the commodity markets - especially
crude oil- for direction this week.Traders are also factoring in the possibility of an interest rate cut by
the Bank of Canada.This could slow help
accelerate a decline in the USD CAD.
