EUR/USD falls to a low of 1.1358 on the day
The buck is beginning to collect some respectable momentum on the session because it rises to a session excessive in opposition to the remainder of the most important bloc. There isn’t any explicit headline to have spurned bids within the greenback however a transfer decrease within the euro and sterling seems to have kicked markets into life in what has been an in any other case boring session.
EUR/USD now threatens a break of the 200-hour MA (blue line) and maintain a transfer under that and the near-term bullish bias might be damaged. The same transfer yesterday was solely thwarted by assist from round 1.1350. So, that would be the subsequent key space to look out for earlier than the 100-hour MA (purple line) @ 1.1342.
There’s talks of month finish demand doing the rounds for the greenback however the transfer decrease within the euro additionally partly might be tied to the softer core inflation determine earlier. Nevertheless, given the backdrop of the Trump-Xi summit to return, it is arduous to see markets get too forward of themselves so I might anticipate the transfer right here to be very a lot contained.
However as talked about yesterday, the “Powell put” does not look to have any indicators of lasting and partly the greenback’s energy right here owes a lot to that too.
