Short-term outlook (12/07-12/11)


Despite several attempts to breach higher last week, the euro failed to hold gains as the dollar rallied across the board on Friday, as a result of better than expected unemployment figures. The 270 points decline of Friday has cleared half of euro’s gains accumulated during the previous two months, hence December started by favoring the dollar bulls. Is this the time of a prolonged correction? Could be… but I maintain my positive view on EUR against the buck, for now, treating such declines as potential opportunities to re-initiate EUR long positions. Speaking of current market conditions – short-term sentiment is slightly bearish due to recent rejection into the 1.5150 region along with Friday’s collapse below the 1.49 handle, back into the key support region around 1.4850. A rising trend line support coming from July’s low at 1.3830 has been reached and limited intra-day losses but in case of the decline’s resumption within the coming trading sessions, we should focus towards the next support levels – into the 1.4700/30 and 1.4600 regions. In case of a recovery, which at this moment seem more plausible to me, I expect the 1.5000 mark, along with 1.5050, to provide a minor barrier – a lot weaker than before (during October and November). A sustained breach above the 1.5 handle would also turn momentum positive, signaling that the correction is over. Also keep an eye on the S&P500 as important levels are still intact into the upside – the 1113 barrier which is still intact, despite several attempts to breach higher along with false breaks/spikes to as high as 1119. Another key barrier is the median retracement of the long-term decline from 1576 to 666.75 which is set at 1121. Due to the solid correlation between EURUSD and S&P500: no sustained break above 1113 -> no breach above the 1.5100/50 region, simple as that.

The superior band of the uptrend channel (seen in the chart below) is, once again, providing support on current pullback. In case of a break lower, next downside barriers into the 1126 and 1100 regions may limit losses. Short-term sentiment shows some bearish signs but it was about time to look for a correction – because it can’t just climb to record highs forever, right? However, if the correction continues – below 1100, bulls should start to worry. On a medium term basis – uptrend is intact and extended dips will favor further buying.

In my previous article, when cable was trying to recover some ground pushing on the 1.6600 handle from below, I pointed out that more selling towards 1.64 was likely – further weakness emerging, as expected, and cable printed session lows around 1.6420 before closing the week .36% lower. Downside remains favored for now, and a break above 1.6700 is needed to confirm the positive bias. Recent hesitation into the 1.6700 zone confirms the indecision of both bulls and bears and the 1.6270-1.6700 range will probably remain valid for now. However, the said 1.6270/00 support region may limit extended losses and provide a reversal point, as that’s quite an important level.

Former support provided by the rising trend line coming from .6475 of July has provided a stable resistance on last upside attempts into the .7280/00 region. A break was needed to resume uptrend but selling into rallies favored the current decline which extended to as low as .7130 on Friday. Although NZD’s losses have been relatively smaller comparing to EUR (-0.86% vs. -1.37%), there are no signs of uptrend’s recovery yet. Below current market levels, important support is formed around .7050 by the 61.8% fibonacci retracement of .6685 – .7635. We’ll see how it reacts if current decline continues.
