EUR / USD - Continues to Loiter at 1.33

January 24, 2013

There isn’t much more to report with the Euro since 24 hours ago.  It continues to trade within a narrow range and sit right on top of the key support level at 1.33.  Over the last few days, the Euro has been placing pressure on the key 1.33 level which has been able to hold up reasonably well so far. Just prior to this, the Euro ran into a brick wall of supply at 1.34 which was a previous resistance level earlier last year. After falling from the resistance level at 1.34 a couple of weeks ago, the Euro did track down through the support at 1.33 a little however it was quickly bought up at prices above 1.3260, as it has been again in the last 48 hours. During this last couple of weeks, the Euro has been trading back and forth between these two key levels of 1.33 and 1.34 and now appears to be waiting for some direction.

Back in the middle of December, the Euro established a neat trading range trading between the significant level at 1.3150 and 1.33, after having broken through the resistance level around 1.3150. It eventually broke down through the support level at 1.3150 earlier this month moving sharply back to the round price level at 1.30. This level stood up and provided strong support for the Euro which resulted in the strong push higher a couple of weeks ago.

Both 1.33 and 1.34 remain current key levels and the former is presently providing support again as it has done previously, although it appears as if pressure is mounting on this level. Where to from here?

Doting on Draghi
The ECB meeting arrives today when EURUSD is testing key levels. The mid-year lows at 1.0952 is perilously close as I write, whilst the post-Brexit referendum low of 1.0913 being in the frame after that. It’s hard to see the ECB adding to its quantitative easing policy...
