Currency movers for July 29, 2015

29 July, 2015

EURUSD, Daily

EURUSD, Since the recent advance through the upper daily chart channel line was penetrated, and the fact that price remains within a 12 month decline, a further corrective bounce for medium term traders towards the 1.1220’s should not be ruled out. We will likely witness a potential breakdown back towards the 1.0870’s, ahead of my longer term price projection near the 1.0750’s. Swing traders with a short term view may look for price to return towards the 1.0970’s before flipping to the long side for a retest of the 1.1120’s.

Today’s Currency Movers

The EUR has been trading off of the back of positive data this week, as German business and consumer confidence data came in firmer than expected; earlier today the German July Gfk held unchanged from June at 10.1. The consensus had been for a slight dip, to 10.0. High employment and expectations for higher pay underpinned the report. The EURUSD price advanced from Monday’s solid German Ifo results may consolidate ahead of today’s U.S. FOMC Statement.

Traders are waiting on the FOMC in the U.S., which concludes its two-day meeting today. No surprises are likely, and while the overall tone is expected to be more upbeat than the previous FOMC in June, the Fed is not likely to commit to a September rate lift-off. This is due to key data releases, concerns about China’s financial markets and Greece, and given recent oil price declines.
