Analysis: German ZEW Economic Sentiment
The European traders
anticipate The German Zentrum fĂĽr EuropĂ¤ische Wirtschaftsforschung (ZEW)
Economic Sentiment to determine the sentiment of German institutional
Above 0 indicates optimism while below 0 indicates pessimism. It's
a leading indicator of business conditions. The reading is concluded from survey
of about 350 German institutional investors and analysts.
A higher than
expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the EUR, while a lower
than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the EUR. The
analysis predict a future reading of 25.20.
The Euro broke the support specified in Fridayâ€™s report
1.2677, and dropped to 1.2607 before it continued its way down after the new
weekâ€™s open to 1.2578 (todayâ€™s low at the moment of preparing this report). The
rise topped at 1.2720, in what turned out to be the most serious test of the top
of the rising channel on the hourly chart. The drop which followed the open,
raised the possibilities that we could be before an important turning point at
the channel top, specially after dropping from Fridayâ€™s high 150 pips so far. As
we said in our last report: â€śWe will not be able to escape the fact that a break
here will be a very positive signal for both the short & medium terms. But,
if we keep trading below (or around) it, we could be facing a turning point
which will probably lead to a drop of hundreds of pointsâ€ť, and we still stand by
this view! Short term support is at 1.2552, and once we break it, we will start
drifting away from the channel top, and will target 1.2442, and may be 1.2393.
The resistance is at 1.2607, and if broken, the negative outlook we have been
praising will get a â€śshockâ€ť, and the Euro will be on the way to 1.2737, and may

The Dollar/Yen continued to
rise, reaching 89.13, but at a much slower pace that we have seen on Wednesday.
This slow bounce came as no surprise, with the consolidation around 88, and
after bouncing from the support area shown on the hourly chart below, and after
clearly breaking the falling trend line from June 21st top. It seems as if we
are in a wave 4 correction now (please refer to the attached chart), which will
ideally target a Fibonacci ratio of the wave 3 dive. Short term support is at
Fridayâ€™s top 88.60, and breaking it would indicate a continuation of the drop to
87.99 & 87.35. The resistance is at 89.01, and breaking it would mean that
the Dollar will continue to capitalize on the break of the above mentioned trend
line, which will ideally target Fibonacci levels for wave 3: 89.52 & 90.13.
This pair is going as expected, in the expected direction, and in convergence
with our negative technical outlook for the medium term. We absolutely expect
the fall to continue on the medium term. But we should not neglect the enormous
possibilities of a bounce up targeting Fibonacci levels: a bounce is highly
probable, and it is most likely to be just a temp, but the trend is down without
a shadow of a doubt!
