EUR/USD: analysis and forecast for March 17, 2014

March 17, 2014

Current trend

Last week the pair had reached new local highs since 2011 at the level of 1.3966. However the pair failed to maintain this level and by the end of the trading session fell to the level of 1.3910. EUR/USD was able to reach such high level despite weak and ambiguous economic data of Eurozone.

This week the EUR/USD started at the closing Friday’s level. This week is not going to be very eventful in terms of important economic statistics; however attention shall be paid to sentiment index in business sector of Germany as per ZEW, which will be released on Tuesday. It is expected that this index will decline against the previous level, which will put pressure on Euro. Today, US volume of industrial output for February will become known, which can also affect the pair EUR/USD.

Levels of support and resistance

Currently the pair is trading at the level of 1.3900, which is a very important level.

Resistance levels: 1.3915, 1.3940 and 13965.

Support levels: 1.3870, 1.3845, 1.3830 and 1.3800.

Trading tips

It is likely that the pair will continue to decline as strengthening in Euro is not advantageous for EU. Short positions can be placed below the level of 1.3850. Limit sell orders are recommended at the level of 1.3940.

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...
