Currency movers for July 28, 2015

28 July, 2015

EURUSD, Daily

EURUSD price, after breaking out of the six week downward sloping price channel, looks set to continue to bounce off of May’s low at 1.0820. Price action during Monday’s trading sessions was supported by the German Ifo report; the market viewed the results as strong enough to allow the pair to confirm a new short term resistance level at 1.1129. Technically, I now seek a return move towards the previous day’s low near the 1.0970’s, before we see a retest of the 1.1120’s.

Today’s Currency Movers

The euro outperformed as more Grexit risk premium was unwound. Further, the July German Ifo survey beat expectations and boosted EUR longs. Market participants, as it seems, are adjusting expectations on the performance of the Chinese economy as the Chinese stock market closed down 8.5% on Monday. It is yet to remain seen, if the Chinese slowdown is a domestic issue or if it will spread into the global economy.

The dollar shrugged off the better durables report, which was beefed up by Boeing orders. The U.S. Dallas Fed’s manufacturing index improved to -4.6 in July versus -7.0 in June. It’s been in negative territory for 7 straight months given the region’s exposure to the oil recession.
