Currency movers for July 15, 2015

July 15, 2015


EURUSD trades within a tight range over the last 24 hours; the 1.1050’s and 1.0960’s seem to be the key break out levels. A breach above the 1.1050’s will open up a daily chart lower top target around 1.1120’s – 60’s. Any move below the 1.0960’s could lead the pair lower towards the 1.0920’s with the possibility of even 1.0840’s as reasonable targets for traders who are considering EURUSD short positions.

Today’s Currency Movers

Yesterday’s EURUSD trading managed to trade higher near the 1.1085 level after the weak U.S. retail sales data; the key driver for the pair still remains to be the outcome over the Greek saga, since finding a resolution between the Greek creditors remains illusive. As long as no real progress is seen regarding Greece, more downward pressure on the EUR looks likely. Something that may be on the minds of some EUR traders is whether the ECB will make a move to intervene in the FX market to support the EUR? My view is that this is something that can’t be ruled out, however, the fact that the ECB is still at an early stage with regards to QE programs can only support the potential downside price action for the EURUSD. The likelihood of any ECB intervention is highly unlikely; however, stranger things have happened in the past.

It is expected that the ECB will keep policy unchanged for this week’s interest rate announcement on Thursday, while the ECB continues to call on Eurozone members to implement reforms. It is expected that the ECB will remain on hold for the rest of the year, while the ongoing commitment to implementing QE continues. The unknown risk to the market is that should contagion happen because of the Greek crisis, any sudden ECB measures, as a response, could lead to market adjustments that may not already be priced in.

The latest release of the U.S. FOMC minutes showed a cautiously positive outlook, but concerns over Greece and a China slowdown does not guarantee that the U.S. fed will make any upward moves for interest rates in September.
