john watching your 200 hour and also 50 on swissy. euro at 13470 smacks a good sell. and as long as we come back down to 30/40 or lower would be ok for next (short). a close near highs if around 60/70 would set us up for a rebound to 135xx next week.

100 hour mva that has traded below since mid-July broken (currently 1.3406) but upside capped so far by 200 hour mva (1.3432) -- as posted earlier in my daily outlook video.

Plovdiv  Gotin  13:11:52 GMT - 07/31/2014  
It seems to me 1.3144(tgt from 1.3994 not be enough for sellers)There are signs for lower levels.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  12:33:00 GMT - 07/31/2014  
US bind yields are driving the market. 10-year is approaching 2.60%, note the fx impact.

NY JM  01:15:22 GMT - 07/29/2014  
Looks like one more day biding time until a barrage of key events for the rest of the week.

Market will stay bearish as long as below 1.3450-55

I meant 1.3448

Plovdiv  Gotin  13:09:39 GMT - 07/28/2014  
1st sign euro is up break 1.3457 and stay above.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  11:54:35 GMT - 07/28/2014  
Market is biding its time ahead of key events this week with the focus on the US (FOMC, GDP, Employment), which should favor the dollar but still data dependent

EUR is at the bottom of the fx food chain - geopolitics also weighing on EUR as stepped up European sanctions on Russia expected

Upside contained as long as below 1.3450-55.

Only 1.3483+ would put 1.35 in play again.

Downside needs firm break of 1.3400 to out the 1.3394 target in play.

Sums it up for a consolidating Monday.

Plovdiv  Gotin  15:14:49 GMT - 07/23/2014  
BTW 1.3475 is the weakest sup in the area 1.34/1.35 leading to 1.3304(-171 pips)....1875.

NY JM  14:39:19 GMT - 07/23/2014  
Sub-1.3475 maintains yesterday's breakout. 18 pip EURUSD range so far today.

Gotin 13:46 until it happens it is a theoretical possibility

Plovdiv  Gotin  13:46:28 GMT - 07/23/2014  
JP/ And if 1.3370 not hold....1.3295 right?

NY JM  13:35:49 GMT - 07/23/2014  
That assumes 1.3475 holds on top.

Plovdiv  Gotin  13:21:11 GMT - 07/23/2014  

Mtl JP  13:18:46 GMT - 07/23/2014  
Gotin - on short-term while under the Pivot, bias is down and some targets are:
Pivot 1.3486
Sup 1 1.3441
Sup 2 1.3415
Sup 3 1.3370

thanks john.

GVI Forex john   16:13:21 GMT - 07/22/2014  
PK- Its not so obvious on the dailies, but recently we stabilized (died) first for a couple of weeks above 1.3600 then we had the same price behavior above 1.3500. Yesterday we traded a 15 pip range above 1.3500. I was just extrapolating and suggesting we could do the same thing above 1.3400 before going for 1.3300 next.

This has a very suspicious feel to me like someone is trying to manage an orderly decline in EURUSD. We know the ECB wants the EURUSD lower, so they would be my number one suspect.

GOT PK  15:50:27 GMT - 07/22/2014  
john - "1.3420 or so....". am I missing something? can´t see this as support level. care to elaborate? cheers.

GVI Forex john   15:10:29 GMT - 07/22/2014  
Now that we are through EURUSD 1.3500, do we now work our way down to 1.3400 and then stabilize at 1.3420 or so for a week or so before we trade down into the 1.3300's?

EUR is fundamentally weak and the ECB does not mind seeing it fall. This is an unsatisfying move because the USD is seriously flawed. Note I said "flawed", not weak.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  13:48:51 GMT - 07/22/2014

I would like to say this is a typical summer Friday as EURUSD has nearly retraced its full day range, and the dollar easing vs most pairs but this market is anything but typical. Resistance still at 1.3535-40.

Stocks have recovered as fresh selling did not emerge today.

1.3500 trades (so much for the invisible hand) ... res now at 1.3512-15, 1.3475 remains the key level. To state the obvious, 1.35 sets the tone.

Wednesday's Trading Outlook
GVI Forex Jay Meisler 15:36 GMT 07/09/2014 - My Profile
Charts show the 1.3660-65 area as next resistance so no obvious stops nearby other than above the day high (1.3642). if the high holds then range initially to 1.3630, which was the overnight high

GVIForex Jay Meisler  15:22:57 GMT - 07/08/2014  
Yesterday EURUSD got stuck around 1.3605-6 for hours after grinding slightly higher

Today it is currently stuck around 1.3611-13 but hope it is not a replay of yesterday.

Using 1.3700-1.3576

1.3623 = 38,2%
1.3638 = 50%
1.3653 = 61.8%

Main focus is on weaker equities to state the obvious.

GVIForex Jay Meisler  15:21:22 GMT - 07/07/2014  
EURUSD tested 1.3600-03 late US on Friday and again since we came in today. Clearly 1.3600 is the pivotal/bias setting level, currently acting as resistance.

1.3598 = 20 day mva
1.3576 = 200 day
1.3570 50 day

GVIForex Jay Meisler  13:40:32 GMT - 07/02/2014  
1.3650 will now set the bias.

1.3640 is current support, below it sees 1.3600-20 (includes a daily trendline)

On top, 1.3675 is again important (blocks 1.3700)

Livingston nh  12:48:03 GMT - 07/02/2014  
EUR/USD failed to hold above the daily 89 ema (1.3681)--But now ADP has raised the bar for tomorrow's events - June has usually lowest plug factor in Q2 and education figs can be distorted in May or June ("Bad weather" extended school year in some states)

So a good NFP effect on USD might be diminished by today's fig

GVIForex Jay Meisler  17:11:15 GMT - 07/01/2014  
I am using 1.3675 as the pivotal level while within 1,3650-00 and the bounce off it has it testing the 1.3690-95 area I suggested earlier. Much will depend on whether there are stops to run on the upside. JPY has been the underperformer today, suggests carry trade interest with USD and EUR 2nd in line.

PAR 16:51:38 GMT - 07/01/2014  
Basically if ECB had taken no action Euro would be much lower and real European economy would be in much better shape.

Central bankers are sorcerers apprentices who think they know , but they just dont know .

london red  16:49:28 GMT - 07/01/2014  
following the current trend the high could have come in anywhere from 13650-13750. anytime we do more than 50% the chance is we will explore further upside so the region between 13730-50 becomes key. it will need something hawkish out of the ecb or dovish from the fed, or some poor data from the US to take us above those resistance, in which case youd need to look to 138.
cable closing above res at 17120 makes 17337 more likely but equally likely, given that there has been no pullback, that 17337 marks a multi week high, being 50% of 1.35-2.12. take note that cable has barely traded in junes range (applies to euro also to a lesser degree) and this will likely be corrected by the end of the month, so on no pullback to at least 1.70, a top at 17337 if reached looks like on a medium term basis.

Livingston nh  16:46:25 GMT - 07/01/2014  
last 60 days -- Technicals play a role (e.g., above 1.81 there are no daily MA resistances), fundamentals are on the shelf for now but the big moves come on "events" and the "expectations" those events promote

EUR moved on ECB and now says no more ECB -- above 1.37 could come on any event and below 1.3650 the same

ECB has no more events so fiscal EU policy becomes important (fundamental) -- events for EUR/USD will be only EU private sector or US data that will alter expectations

Or when those currencies meet resistance, EURUSD will fall out of cross offsets.

Personally I hope it firms to give better sell levels.

with aud and gbp charging on relentlessly, euro will be pulled up later as well

GVIForex Jay Meisler  16:19:23 GMT - 07/01/2014  
fs, that is the purpose of this thread and differing opinions is what makes a market.

It all depends on whether 1.37 is broken. if 1.3700 is not broken then 1.3650 is at risk. if 1.37 breaks, then risk is for 1.3735-75

EURUSD will lag USD weakness.

kl fs  16:13:22 GMT - 07/01/2014  
meanwhile aud and gbp will make new highs against usd

GVIForex Jay Meisler  15:22:01 GMT - 07/01/2014  
If 1.3675 holds then selling interest slows and we go into one of those sideways ranges (1.3675-90/95?). If 1.3675 gives way then risk is 1.3640-50.

Here is my earlier video update

Also, 1.3739 = 100 day mva, which is within my resistance zone

GVIForex Jay Meisler  14:54:28 GMT - 07/01/2014  
See my earlier post -- 1.37 proving to be a top (EUR crosses argue that way) - see now if 1.3675 holds.

Livingston nh  12:30:47 GMT - 07/01/2014  
a big event week so a spike to 1.3730 (50 bps above daily 89 ema) is possible as yesterday's close above 89 ema // two risks today are reaction to a US PMI and 3 yr auction (like the 2 yr reception?)

ECB will be status quo like the Fed -- so short term neutral to positive for EUR // so any downside has to come from market reaction to US data

As I posted here earlier:

- How the market ends the week more important than how it starts out
- Chance eurusd could run stops, especially if flash HICP ticks up as expected
- If eurusd runs stops, then there is a chance of a Monday Effect week if Monday's high becomes the high for the week
- Watch 1.3650 and more important 1.3675
- US 10-year 2.50% yield may hold a key to how it trades
- Month/quarter/half year end flows to dominate Monday

(EU) ECB's Nowotny: ECB is interested in limiting EUR strength, but has no FX target

- EMU recovery has been somewhat weak, face danger that the cost of crisis could be that potential growth may be limited
- Germany is increasingly becoming Europe's growth engine
- ECB is significantly undershooting goal of price stability, but eurozone is not seeing deflation.
- Expecting inflation to be below the ECB targets until 2016
- Main issues in bank lending is weak demand
- Funding for lending scheme by the BOE has not been seen as a large success
- Narrowing spreads on peripheral debt is not simply because of ECB action, but also due to growing investor interest in the Eurozone
- Hope banks will regain full trust of the market after the asset quality review is completed.

I prefer to focus my patterns on the short term but this was posted just now on GVI Forex by one of our senior members

I took a closer look and out of the past 22 days, the high has been 1.36xx on 17 days and 1.35xx on 5 days

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  12:46:18 GMT - 06/23/2014  
As I posted on GVIForex

Market assumes EURUSD range is 1.35-1.37 so it should not be a surprise to see 1.36 become the focal point.

1.36 has traded 3 days in a row and if you include last Wednesday when the high was 1.3599, you can make a case that it is 4 days.

The longer this pattern goes on the better the chance of a directional move once broken. In the meantime, have been trading under the assumption of a 1.3550-1.3650 range as long as this pattern is valid.

1.3585 has flipped between support and resistance this week so move back to it should not be a surprise after 1.3600 gave way.

Key level is around 1.3550 but the 1.3580-05 area needs to hold for 1.36 to have a magnetic pull.

It looks like 1.35-1.37 until further notice.

Agree very much with the perception of movement while in a narrow range -- after the last three tops it took some time to feel the impact (avg 3k) - the last bottom made only after Ben's nightmare induced QE3 in 2012// if this move is real and follows the script we should have some serious downside days the balance of the year -- Volatility PLEASE

37 pip range yesterday, around 38 so far today. When in tight ranges, small moves can feel like big ones.

On paper, EURUSD is lined up in a perfect storm to move lower yet I get the feeling there is an anti-dollar bias in the market, especially outside the US. Crosses suggest an anti-EUR bias as well but not as much vs. the dollar. This would change if 1.3475 is firmly taken out.

Anyone see it different?

DP, I would assign almost zero probability of making a run at 1.38 this week

As for a Monday Effect, the high for the week was set on Monday so if there is a risk it is on the down not upside.

However, this works best when the market loads up one way at the start of the week and is left to the mercy of the market after mid-week when the price moves away from the Monday high or low.

Let me know if this is clear.

The Risk Today:
EURUSD's bullish intraday reversal on 5 June has created a key support at 1.3503. Monitor that level as buying interest has thus far remained weak. Hourly resistances can now be found at 1.3602 (10/06/2014 high) and 1.3677. In the longer term, the break of the long-term rising wedge (see also the support at 1.3673) indicates a clear deterioration of the technical structure. The long-term downside risk implied by the double-top formation is 1.3379. Key supports can be found at 1.3477 (03/02/2014 low) and 1.3296 (07/11/2013 low).

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  16:47:12 GMT - 06/11/2014  
One way to look at the market is that the dollar needs to find a bottom vs the cross offset currencies for the EURUSD to bear the brunt of EUR cross selling. Right now it is a little of each (EURUSD soft, offsets pushing the USD down elsewhere).

I call this cross trading 101.

nw kw  16:36:34 GMT - 06/11/2014  
JPY-crosses mixed pre-BoJ

EUR/JPY broke its 200-dma (138.72) on the downside given the broad based selling pressures on EUR. Consolidation below the 200-dma should intensify the downside pressures towards 137.98 (May low), then 136.23 (2014 low). Large option barriers trail below 139.00 for today expiry.

Walking into June 12-13th BoJ meeting, traders are likely to turn neutral on JPY-crosses given the risk of a short-term increase in JPY-demand following a status quo announcement (consensus). As mentioned previously, the current capital flows are mostly driven by interest rate differentials and central banks’ policy outlooks. Given the aggressive monetary stimulus in the Euro-zone and liquidity expansionist measures in China, we doubt a pullback in JPY crosses due to BoJ inaction. We will be also seeking reaction from Japan to ECB and PBoC actions. Given the improvement in domestic macro fundamentals, BoJ has no apparent reason to act in June meeting. In fact, Japan released 6.7% growth in GDP (q/q annualized) in the first quarter with significant expansion of 7.6% in business spending (vs. 4.6% exp. & 4.9% last). The domestic corporate good prices advanced 0.3% m/m in May (vs. 0.1% exp. & 2.8% after April’s tax hikes), bringing CGPI to 4.4% y/y (vs. 4.1% expected and last). The sales tax hike has seemingly not hit the corporate price dynamics back to pre-hike levels. The inflation dynamics remain in line with BoJ’s 2.0% target.

Aud and Kiwi underpinned by carry trade. RBNZ IR decision tomorrow, with another 25bp rise expected.

The Euro was again under pressure today, giving up last week’s late gains and dragging the other Euro majors lower, with the dollar being the major beneficiary as traders eyed firmer US Treasury yields. The Aud and Kiwi also both performed well as yield players underpinned demand for the carry trade. In the absence of any major data today it could be one of consolidation with the session highlights likely to be the WBC Australian Consumer Confidence and the UK Unemployment data.

EUR/USD: 1.3543
The Euro faced another selloff in early Europe and has now given up most of the gains from last week’s bounce following the ECB easing. Reasons for the move have been pointed at an ECB Board member (Finnish central bank Governor, Liikanen), who noted the impact of a prolonged period of low inflation and reiterated the ECB’s “determination and capacity to act.” Elsewhere leveraged names were noted sellers, on the back of market talk regarding the impact of potential reserve-manager sales of the Euro due to negative deposit rates.

Paris ib  15:59:38 GMT - 06/11/2014  
The Japanese and Chinese hold 2 trillion worth of U.S. debt between then. The FED has not financed the deficit by printing money, it has merely manipulated financial markets and weakened the USD. When we look back we will wonder why the FED chose to threaten the USD status as an international reserve currency. A country relying on foreign capital inflows can not do what a country like Japan did. Japan was a capital exporter and did not need or want foreign capital inflows. The U.S. is not in the same position. How they missed that crucial point is beyond me.

Deficit has been financed by the Fed orienting money

Longer-term, a key is whether the US gets an energy policy that leads to self sufficiency.

This would change the market dynamic.

Paris ib  15:51:56 GMT - 06/11/2014  
The market is long USD/JPY because the universal call has been 'flood of money' and - of course - USD/JPY to 110...... and it's not happening. Unfortunately I think the USD brand has been damaged. The FED has a credibility issue, plus the reliance on foreign capital and a war mongering foreign policy means that the USD is not attracting long term capital inflows. What you got is a chronic trade deficit, a current account deficit and an absolutely unbelievable Government debt which is financed to a large extent by foreign capital. That puts the U.S. in a very delicate position.

nw kw  15:51:31 GMT - 06/11/2014  
The GDP of the EU is about $12 trillion, the largest in the world in purchase power parity terms.

The Euro is the second most important currency in the world. Many traders regard it as a future alternative to the US dollar, and while the dollar losing the main advantages of its dominant status is unlikely any time soon, it is true that the Euro has greatest potential becoming the new global currency over the longer term.

Trends in the Euro are mostly determined by speculative flows, central bank behavior (especially that of the Chinese, Russian, and Middle Eastern central banks), risk sentiment, and general market dynamics. Trends in the Euro often correlate well stock or commodity market trends. When prices of raw materials rise, much of the earnings of raw materials exporters are channeled to the Euro for diversification purposes.

There is no special new reason to sell Euros. The modest changes to interest rates made by the ECB is not really that big of a deal. The Yanks keep on coming up with all these exciting new reasons why money will start flooding into their currency and their country. The wall of money.... which never happened. It sounds a lot like wishful thinking. They need to get their house in order and stop relying on foreign capital inflows.

GVI Forex john   14:14:25 GMT - 06/11/2014  
Hearing the ECB rate cut has finally started to hit the repo market today. This means that European banks are in search of new places to park their excess EUR funds. There are not a lot of choices. One home may be USD liquid short term-assets. This would generate demand for the USD vs the EUR (EURUSD selling).

We don't know as of this time how much will be flowing into the USD, but this could mark a significant change in the dynamics of the forex market in favor of the USD. So keep alert!

it is hard to be too bearish when your on the bid buying back short positions -- also 1.3500 supported a rally to 1.3670 - so more price action would be needed to show that level has some chance to break.

also aud nzd cad are not showing any USD Strength -- and gbp may fall some more today down to 1.6710/15 -- but it too hardly inspires a huge run into USD.

overall its a eurusd cross driven market - but how far can that go on its own.

Sure you have a point in that people who bought yesterday are probably a little nervous .. but anyway that's what makes a market -- someone has to sell the lows and buy the highs - they don't make themselves.

30 continues to offer good support. i suspect a chunk is down to short covering. for me the near term range is 30 up to the 200 day.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  15:10:24 GMT - 06/06/2014  
This pattern is one of my favorite and when broken it more often than not leads to a directional move. In this case I have an open mind but would need confirmation before turning bullish. Otherwise it is a 1.35-1.37 range.

jkt abel  15:03:04 GMT - 06/06/2014  
disagree Jay, above 1.36 close is bullish IMO for next week

london red  14:50:25 GMT - 06/06/2014  
moving towards the end of the hour, normally a bit of action particularly on a friday afternoon. thru 36 or 30 decides this possies fate.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  14:44:30 GMT - 06/06/2014  
EURUSD has closed within 1.3595-1.3654 for 11 days in a row, within 1.3595-1.3685 for 12 days and 1.3595-1.3698 for 13 days.

Break of 7 day pattern where 1.36 has traded is typically bullish but close within the existing range and below 1.3654 (also 1.3655-58 = 200/20 day mvas) neutralizes to an extent.

Last close above the 20 day mva was on May 7

london red  14:27:36 GMT - 06/06/2014  
stop now a point in my favour. looking for under 30. if not will close.

london red  14:24:39 GMT - 06/06/2014  
sold at 40, stop at 57. below 36 gives another attempt at last hour low. if get thru there will lower stop to evens

london red  14:18:03 GMT - 06/06/2014  
not sure about dnt at 137 (heard 138/135) but a few bn worth expiries going out at 136-13650 during next week

london red  14:06:22 GMT - 06/06/2014  
if going lower you want to be in it before those lines are taken Jay. lot of support there so should move to 136/13585. lot of large expiries at 136 next week hampering upside but equally plenty short so can see under 13585 without a good bounce from there first.

Livingston nh  14:06:20 GMT - 06/06/2014  
Are EUR options going out anywhere today -- would think 1.36 strike is gravity or 1.37 dnt ?? //declining 21 dma @1.3663

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  14:01:15 GMT - 06/06/2014  
100 and 200 hour mva still converging in a near flat line around 1.3617

london red  14:00:06 GMT - 06/06/2014  
lower hourly low closing below prev low but not yet low of day. fresh hour gives us op for even 200 day again and still down. so selling 45/50 for thru 20 my plan.

london red  13:40:49 GMT - 06/06/2014  
eurusd stopped 45. 30 support, with hourly low just below that. then the 10 day. below 3620 then selling increases again.

london red  13:24:53 GMT - 06/06/2014  
fwiw if eurusd has reversed this week only can assume eurgbp is going to test 8155/67 (last weeks high a little below there) and possibly break it depending on eurusd performance. gbp has solid fundamentals so sales at 8190-8250 make sense if seen.

london red  13:06:47 GMT - 06/06/2014  
we should try one more time for fib. it may get to 74 and break or it may fall short somewhere at 65/70. will be looking at triple top shs if so, so if cannot go up this third time ill look for under 200 day down to 10 day.

london red  13:04:10 GMT - 06/06/2014  
long 55 stop 45

london red  12:58:35 GMT - 06/06/2014  
covered 66. lets try one more time at 74 and if fails then its down. it up to 75/76 surely must go up.

london red  12:55:28 GMT - 06/06/2014  
NY im neither bull nor bear, price action dictates my view. not good enough to call it long term. short term more often right than wrong and that enough for me.

london red  12:53:48 GMT - 06/06/2014  
struggling this is something new at res for first time since break above 13573 yesterday. short term high in sold 73 stop above 80

Red, I see you flipped to the bull side.

Looking at charts, anyone who sold over the past 2 weeks, which is half the time being ECB meetings, is underwater.

All depends now whether stops build above the market.

london red  12:40:18 GMT - 06/06/2014  
NY, inclined to think it will go as all May everyone was selling with almost no bounce to speak of. now theyve got it and not everyone can get out through a small door at the same time. think can buy 200 day with stop under 20 or so.

This is not your father's FX market - in the old days the EUR would have gotten smashed by the ECB easing.

One source of EUR strength until Draghi deflated the balloon last month were inflows into the peripheral countries. We are seeing strength in those markets since the ECB meeting, suggests one source of support for the EUR.

Livingston nh  11:09:01 GMT - 06/06/2014

61.8 of jan to may 135/140 is 13674

london red  10:34:15 GMT - 06/06/2014  
61.8 of jan to may 135/140 is 13674 with 144 ema is couple of pips below. Above there is 50% at 13737. As said before former needs to be taken or risk to 13586.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  10:23:41 GMT - 06/06/2014  
I was told years ago that key reversal days do not always work in fx so I take notice of it but do not follow it with blind faith.

All I am saying is put price action in perspective and levels that would need to be taken out to force a further retracement.

For me, there are two scenarios for the EURUSD, bear or range. I have a hard time seeing a sustained uptrend.

Otherwise, look across-the-board and USD is generally weak, which is really odd ahead of a US jobs report. USD selling is partly explained by EUR giving back some cross gains from yesterday.

I think 1.3650 is an important level for the bull side, 1.36 for the bear side.

jkt abel  10:18:29 GMT - 06/06/2014  
Jay, key day reversal with long tail as well

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  10:12:27 GMT - 06/06/2014  
For the EURUSD bulls (and there seem to be many), you need to put the price action in perspective:

1) 1.3691 = 38.2% of 1.3996-1.3503 so it has not even retraced 38.2% of the move

2) Bounced off 1.3670, which was a 2 week high

3) Current pattern is 1.36 has traded 7 days in a row so needs to stay above it to support a bull case

4) Trading ahead of NFP roulette is like rolling the dice in Las Vegas

5) 20 day mva = 1.3658 and 200 day mva = 1.3655 so close vs. these levels are important

6) ECB does not want a stronger EUR

7) On the other side, market got caught badly yesterday so probably bids lying in wait at lower levels by those caught short.

no one semed to notice, (posted this earlier from ZH), but besides the Draggii Press the ECB also put out its Forecast, and as you can see from the chart it UPPED Euro to 138 thru 2016.

so trade on the Dragsters BS or Trade on the ECBs forecast.

What's Wrong With This ECB Forecast

syd sf  00:35:02 GMT - 06/06/2014  
obviously there are a few sellers now because this is the best price they have had to sell for a while

but I don't think that will interfere with a move up to 90/95

before the risk/reward gets better for the sell side of the market and more of the day trading stops get cleared... taking away some of the demand.

I fail to see how the eurusd is now the "premier" currency to own... looking forward.

kl fs  00:31:40 GMT - 06/06/2014

jkt abel  00:22:10 GMT - 06/06/2014  
as Jay mentioned, close above 1.3640 was key reversal day, it was a big one too with long tail, very significant reversal day IMO, would be stupid to sell euro

on 1 hr now euro hit 55 area from 1 hr tunnel and looks to come back to tunnel at 3613 from 3659 now..

Cape May JB  18:04:47 GMT - 06/05/2014  
So now we wait for the second half of the picture, May NFP tomorrow. Street estimates run from +210K to 220K for the month. I feel the risk is on the upside for this number with many pieces of economic data recently coming in strong. I'm thinking +250K.

So if we get a piece of data that supports the view that the U.S. recovery is gaining steam, the USD should be supported with the ECB taking extreme measures to support its economy. Its hard to see how the EURUSD will not at a minimum slip down to the low 1.35's.

As for the risk, a mediocre jobs number is unlikely in my opinion see EURUSD settle at the end of the week above 1.3650.

Dollar is down across-the-board today as risk on (former stocks) and lower bond yields the main focus despite all the fuss about the confounding EUR.

Setting up for an interesting end to the week with NFP followed by a barren economic calendar the following week, This makes tomorrow's close very important.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  16:19:23 GMT - 06/05/2014  
John, surprised or not really surprised as the EURUSD has been confounding forecasts since 2013. With that said it is frustrating as we need a good trend to trade rather than more chop.

Yet it is hard to believe it is up on the day (1.3631) but would need to close above 1.3640 for an outside day key reversal day.

NFP tomorrow and it comes down to where stops are lying as buy stops are closer than sell stops. I guess we watch the 200 day mva as that remains a key indicator.

As I have said many times, I much prefer to trade in anticipation of events than on the event itself. Today is a day that tells you why.

GVI Forex john   16:01:52 GMT - 06/05/2014  
Its hard for me to believe that EURUSD is now back at 1.3616 after what appears to have been serious actions by the ECB today, When a central bank puts on a severe credit squeeze, the reaction in the past has been violent and immediate.

This time the ECB is easing policy in a world where policy elsewhere is easy. Thus Draghi's actions are not having an immediate and irreversible impact. Its like pushing on an open door, not like standing in front of a freight train. It might take a while for the impact of these new policies to seep into the markets.

One key dimension of desired effects presumably was a weaker EUR. That would have to happen via carry trades. Is there any reason why hedge funds will be rushing to borrow EUR to buy something? Liquidity is cheap and ample elsewhere.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  15:15:50 GMT - 06/05/2014

So ECB rate cut was more or less in line with expectations but EURUSD reacted lower. As with any news, reaction is what counts.

Now we wait for Draghi and key here is not only what other measures he presents but whether he indicates, as expected, that the ECB stands ready to act further if needed.

(EU) Preview: ECB Interest Rate Decision expected at 07:45 ET (11:45 GMT)
- Majority of analyst (over 95) expect ECB to cut key rates but there is a disagreement over the degree of the exact cut: (range seen between unchanged to -25bps)

Details: >
- Majority of analysts (57%) expect Main Refi Rate to cut by 15bps to 0.10%. The minority view (35%) see a 10bps cut. Super minority call for unchange rate or steeper 25bps cut
- Majority of analysts (64%) expect Deposit Facility Rate expected to be cut by 10bps to -0.10%. The minority view (24%) see a 15bps cut. Super minority call for unchanged
- Majority of analysts (33%) expect Marginal Lending Facility expected to be cut by 15bps to 0.60%.. The minority view (32% each) see either a 10 or 25bps cut
- June will bring an updated set of ECB staff projections and a better chance for further policy action if indicators signaled a change to the medium term outlook.

Analysis: >- Draghi stated in May that the Council was comfortable to act in June. .Reports circulated that Draghi was also posed to keep rate-cut option open even after a June move.
- ECB has been under market pressure to follow up all of its recent rhetoric with concrete moves as . Recent data has hardened the case for decisive measures. ECB is also expected to unveil a combination of measures aimed to strengthen the growth and inflation outlook ECB options other than conventional interest rates
1) Providing a long-term LTRO, but linking the use of LTRO to a 'funding for lending programme' aimed at supporting credit supply for SMEs
2) Suspending the sterilization of the Securities Market Program ( SMP) bond holdings, increasing EUR cash circulation accordingly (**Note: ECB has failed to fully sterialize this the past 8 weeks)
- The concern over deflation is that people and businesses tend to postpone purchases while hoping for further price declines in the future
3) Reducing reserve requirements and collateral conditions
4) Extending the fixed rate full allotment regime, under which banks can borrow as much as they like against eligible collateral, beyond its current July 2015 termination

I heard someone say today that one goal of the ECB may be to make the currency a FUNDING currency for carry trades. Presumably negative interest rates could help. This would weaken the EUR.

Also head the head of IFO today presented the "German view". He said that exchange rates were not set properly initially and that as a result the cost of borrowing was too low and southern Europe overspent. In essence he said was what the the southern tier of the Eurozone needs to deflate and all the ECB is doing is extending the pain.

Its a long time ago, but I warned that this was a wrong-headed scheme at the time when it was launched. I stand by that opinion now. I don't know if this will ever be worked out by the normal market mechanisms.
