February 28, 2014

Today major releases come from USA: second preliminary GDP data for the IV quarter 2013 and Chicago PMI. Both forecasts are negative.

First preliminary data on GDP has lowered the indicator to 3.2%, comparing to the 3,6% in III quarter of 2013. Today's figures will be even lower – 2.5%; they can weaken Dollar considerably. Moreover, decrease of GDP can slow down the curtailment of QE3 program.

February Chicago PMI won't strengthen the Dollar either. The index registers manufacturing and non-manufacturing activity in the Chicago region and is considered as leading indicator of national PMI. According to the forecast Chicago PMI will decrease to the level of 57.9 points, the lowest since last September.

Regarding fundamental data, we expect US Dollar to weaken against its opponents and the pair EUR/USD to reach the levels of 1.3820, 1.3845 and 1.3865.

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...
