EUR/USD: general review on 03.07.2015

July 3, 2015

Current trend

On Thursday, the Euro grew by 30 points against the USD amid poor economic data from the US. Non-farm Payrolls amounted to 223 K of new jobs, which is 7 K below what was expected. The unemployment level fell by 0.2% to 5.3%, however, labor participation rate was only 62.2%, which is the worst figure since 1977.

It is an official holiday in the US today. Major economic releases for today include Markit Services PMI for France (at 10:50 am GMT +3), Germany (at 10:55 am GMT +3) and Eurozone (at 11:00 am GMT +3), as well as the Retail Sales data for Eurozone (at 12:00 pm GMT +3). Markets expect positive data and that should strengthen the Euro. The pair remains moderately volatile.

Support and resistance

On the 4-hour chart, MA20 and MA50 remain above the current price and directed downward, which indicates downward trend.

The support level is at 1.0954 (this week low). The nearest resistance level is at 1.1117 (EMA20).

Resistance levels: 1.1117, 1.1157, 1.1235.

The market is in need of a new narrative. The Fed meeting in December is too far off and for now, the US election is not something that entices excitement. With central banks on hold, markets are pushing the envelope in terms of risk...
