EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 8, 2018

The euro major pair faced a bearish drop after the result of split congress which is already anticipated by the market and momentum of the pair starting to become insufficient after the final outcome was announced.                The Republicans kept the Senate and Democrats took the House.                Although, House will probably pressure Trump concerning taxes whom he pledged to fight back with investigations being out.                Meanwhile, the eurozone resulted in a positive macro data which had no impact on price action as momentum yesterday were dominated by the US elections results and the pair has had important gains.                Yet, the US dollars recovered in the broad market during the Asian session, as well as late American hours following a major loss against euro yesterday.               

There is a probability for the dollar to become dovish if the policy statement shows a sensitive reaction to the recent declines in the stock market.                Looking at the technical perspective, the euro against the US dollar 25 delta risk reversals grew to -0.               575, which was the peak since August 1.                The means that the demand or the implied volatility premium for the cheaper money of euro is presently at the lowest in more than three months.                The falling demand for the bearish bets of the euro would mean that investors are anticipating for a stronger recovery rally for the euro major pair.                Meanwhile, the greenback starts to kick-off on the 4-hour and daily chart implying the bullish momentum to remain intact, demonstrated that price continues to move higher than the level of 1.               14.

The euro major pair has been moving steadily after the release of the FOMC report since there is a bearish pressure on both currencies.               Aside from rising tensions in Europe, the hawkish sentiment remains with market expectations that adds pressure on the common currency.               Various political tensions such as Brexit, tensions between Brussels and Rome are anticipated to heighten tension in the next few weeks, yet Brexit is likely to move in a sluggish pace.               The issue between EU and Italy influence the spread between Italy and Germany to 300 bps.               Other than that, the two major coalition partners in Italy proceeds to take action in limiting immigration that also affects the euro across markets.               

These economic events limit the progress of the euro while in the US, uncertainty has pushed investors to side on the US-dominated assents and the greenback.               The EUR/USD pair grew modestly after the release of the FOMC statement and rise to 1.              1409.               It declines immediately and broke the previous slows.               The price declined below 1.              1350 during the Asian trading session as the US central bank kept the funds' rate at 2.              25% to 2.              00.               At the same time, the recent statement remained the same from the September meeting, providing a solid bullish support.               Meanwhile, the Italian bond yields yesterday night after the EU commissionís forecast saying that Italy has undergone inadequate and partial analysis.

Brexit remains to be the center for todayís Asian session since UK Prime Minister Theresa May canceled the emergency meeting to approve the Brexit deal this week.              The meeting was postponed but the resistance from the cabinet remains strong, added to Brussels concerns, which delays the Brexit talks and lessen the possibility of the expected meeting in November.              In this case, the Sterling bulls are on the less favorable situation.              Market hopes for a miracle to relieves the pressure amid the heavy headlines with the Brexit as the main concern over the weekend causing more tension in the market.              It seems that the market declined by 0.             46% from this morning price level of 1.             2911.             

There is no major economic event for the UK, hence, traders can expect for thin trading volumes given that there is less US money market for the long Thanksgiving weekend but Tuesday seems to offer UK Average Earnings and GBP/USD traders are looking for something an early event to the headlines prior to major economic data.              The dollar was strengthened by last weekís gains and grew to a 16-month high on Monday as traders anticipate for the US Federal Reserve to tighten monetary policies and the bullish tone of the greenback with the ongoing Brexit talks to further escalate the bullish situation.              As for the technical perspective, the implied volatility premium grew sharply while an increasing demand for the British pound puts a bearish pressure while traders are anticipating for a much bigger decline of the currency.              The risk appetite has also lessened during the Asian trading session as the EUís situation worsened.

The euro influenced the appreciation of greenback during Monday trading session with political uncertainty affecting the European market.             The euro major pair dropped to 1.            1239 soon after the opening of the London session in the background of tension with the Italian budget as rejected by the EU commission in the previous week.             The Italian government submitted again a fiscal plan in correspondence with the EU rules and risk an economic sanction.             Yet, it seems that there is no intent to change the budget.             The pair is declining across the European and North American hours reaching a fresh 16-month low due to the bearish pressure from both sides of Atlantic.             

Lack of progress in the Brexit negotiation adds pressure on the bearish tone to the common currency added to the Italian budget concerns.             The White House also intends to reconsider auto tariffs against Europe which gives a dovish sentiment for the investors, further adding a bearish pressure to the common currency in the future.             Reconsideration of tariffs on the European market despite ending it a few months after meeting between the US and Europe, which can be because of various reasons such as the global trade war and renewed Iran sanctions and criticism of ďAmerica firstĒ in the Trump administration.             

There are bids for the EUR/USD pair in Asia and an optimistic view of the renews US-China trade.             Yet, the change in budget still questions the Italy that could affect the spread between the high-spend budget to the European Union today will likely increase the spread between the Italian 10-year government bond yield and its German counterpart to the recent high of 325 basis points.             Om case that market expectations.             If Italy submitted an unchanged budget for euro, traders can anticipate the resumption of a bearish pressure.             As for the fundamental data, investors are eyeing on the German CPI data scheduled today which is expected to remain the same.             However, in case it turns out positive, this could drive momentum for a relief rally on the euro major pair.

The euro major pair did not have an optimistic trading overnight with UK ministers exiting their roles attesting as a protest in the negotiation deal of Prime Minister Theresa May with the EU not meeting UKís electorate vote.            Being against the authority of Theresa May raising uncertainty in the European politics that further raises the chance for the Brexit to be no deal that affects both economies.            Nevertheless, the euro major pair rise despite higher forecast of 0.           8% by the  U.           S.            Census Bureau US retail sales data in October, higher than the 0.           5% market expectation.            Meanwhile, the action moves with the reversal on Wall Street that resulted in a rally of the euro and retreating of long yen as the EUR/JPY pair recovered.           

Moreover, the greenback also received more bearish pressure after the profit taking on the trade talk news between the US and China, giving America the lead and raising risk appetite.            Investors now wait for the speech from ECB president Draghi and a drive on strong bid can take place if Draghi is able to act on the Italy budget crisis and confirm plans on ending the QE program.            If Draghi becomes heedful, the price may drop below 1.           30 and bet on a delay of the rate hike in 2019.             The Eurozone CPI data is anticipated to be released, as well as the data on Industrial production.

The euro major pair retreated back higher than 1.          14 level after the headlines on US President said to make a trade deal.           Although no agreement has been set yet, which in turn, raised risk appetite with investors and kickstart momentum across the market on Friday last week.           Thus, the pair gained 200 pips from the low level of 1.          1215 on Monday and closed in favor of the euro and grew by 0.          81% on the day.           

It has been trading close to the Friday high at 1.          14 at the beginning of the Asian session as investors became heedful following the dovish comments from edís newly appointed vice chair, Richard Clarida, saying a global economic slowdown is important for the US economic outlook and a similar to the interview from the Fed Dallas President Robert Kaplan who sees a slowdown in China and Europe.           Nevertheless, analysts see this as an acceptable risk factor given that the Fed is reliant on rate hikes while the investors reacted to the dovish rhetorics resulted in US dollar weakened.           

Yet, it is unlikely for the euro to hold on the gains for long-term as headlines directed differently after a poor output from the European macro data.           Despite the weakened outlook from the PPI data from Germany and PMI of Eurozone give a steady trend in medium- to long-term while analysts anticipate Fed rate hike and suggest a hawkish outlook in the future.

The British pound major pair is trading in a range-bound at 1.         285 at a similar level for the week after Sterling traders had a rest from busy buying schedule who are hopeful of Brexit and selling short on a bearish Brexit situation.          Exiting the European Union continues to be a concern for both Sterling investors and Prime Minister Theresa to strengthen the draft for no Brexit deal with her own party who have lost confidence in her office with risks continues to be high with the possibility for the House of Commons to reject the present Brexit offering despite the Prime ministerís efforts that could push the major responsibilities on the works.         

Investors are now waiting for the upcoming EU Brexit Summit as traders expected to receive the Brexit plan positively.          If there is no confidence vote and the prime minister will be able to keep the position, a no Brexit deal can be avoided.          On Tuesday, a speech from Bank of England Governor Mark Carney is expected regarding the British parliament on the latest Inflation report hearings which would have the influence to support the dovish sentiment of the central bank.          In the meantime, traders can take a rest from the Brexit worries.

The euro major par declined abruptly during the US session and reached a fresh new low at 1.        1359.         The greenback has strengthened across the market in the last hours of trading especially equity in Wall Street paired against yen and euro and consolidated losses due to a bearish decline.         Earlier, the price peaked at 1.        1472, which has been the highest since November 7 but pulled back and lost momentum, resulting in a correction and lose over 100 pips.         The risk-off sentiment yesterday lead the financial markets with the greenback standing strongly against the common currency as well as other main competitors

The decline is not just about the risk-off sentiment with the euro which also had its weakness that was primarily because of the tension between EU Commission and Italy on the 2019 budget.         Moreover, the rhetoric by ECBís Weidmann saying that policy normalization may take a long time.       

This adds high bearish pressure on the common currency with concerns on the possible sanction for the Italian government from EU being lenient to France on budget concerns.         Italy pointed out that growing out may lead to an economic slowdown that may affect the whole of Europe.         

How the EU reacted may add a bearish pressure to the euro if it turns out against Italy, that could add political tension and reach new highs.         However, the yields differential may decline abruptly, raising again the euro to yesterdayís high of 1.        1472 if the EU becomes more dovish.         As for the headlines,  there is no data to be released from the Eurozone but existing homes sales data and core durable goods from the US are scheduled today, as well as the weekly crude oil inventory.

The euro major is moving steadily upward higher than the 1.       14 during the Asian session as the sentiment on the common currency shifted by the Brexit optimism and general weakness of the US dollar as markets prepare for the Markit preliminary of November PMI scheduled later from the EU and the US.        The euro gained early bids amid thinned market due to holidays.        The Asian market supports the Brexit declaration as talked about by the UK and the European Commission for the night that lays out trade relationship prior to the Brexit summer this Sunday.       

The weakened US dollar across the market amid trading concerns of the Fed may tighten and slowed down the pace but keeps the currency afloat.        Moreover, the euro supported the ECB minutes that showed the central bank pursuing the QE easing program in December in the background of sluggish Eurozone economic growth.        On the headlines, the Eurozone flash manufacturing and services PMI reports will boost and Italian budget concern will still have an influence over the euro in the next few days.

The euro is facing various problems including political problems and negative economic data as greenback gains momentum which causes the price movement to be bearishly followed by a weaker Eurozone PMI data and decline from 1.      14 to 1.      1345.       The trading session closed this week with chances to end the latest bullish momentum as price closes lower than the 20-day SMA in favor of the common currency.        Various trading factors continue to put pressure on the pair, reaching a 10-day low of 1.      1326 during the early Asian session signaled by the drop in Friday to be the sin in ending Euroís latest recovery rally.       

The pair continues to trade range bound close to the weekly lows.       Losses during the Friday session can be recovered if the spread between the Italian 10-year government bond yield and its US counterpart continues to minimize.       The European Commission promoted an excessive deficit procedure against Italy after the country changed the budget proposals.       Concerns on the Italian budget remains to be the main attention of investors amid the minor reduction on budget plans.       On the other hand, the greenback resumes having a positive price flow as a boost in equities are anticipated to get better on holidays.       

On the fundamentals, there are no major reports from the US that could have a big impact on European markets from ECB President Draghi but releases from eurozone including the German Ifo business climate, German business expectations, and current assessment data, as well as, speeches from ECB President Draghi, Praet, Coeure & Nowotny are likely to affect trading.

Traders reacted as shown on the sharp price reversal of the euro major pair after the dovish rhetorics of the Fed chair Jerome Powell.      The rebound was influenced by the decline in the US Treasury yields after the speech of Powell saying interest rates are just lower than the neutral which may translate as the rate hike cycle will almost end.     

The chances to postpone the Fed rate hike in 2019 increases sharply which resulted in a decline of the greenback across the market in the core PCE comes out lower than anticipated.      In the second half of the day, the marketís attention will be on the release of Fed minutes.      On the technical aspect, the euro major pair added a bullish trend outside the candle given the intraday high and price movement on Tuesday.      A bullish reversal would confirm if everything turns out positive and needed to close higher than 1.     1388.      The short-term trades are also seen to be on a bullish trend but traders remain heedful since the price movement today will rely on the data and it isnít new to trades for any unforeseen events.

Moreover, the shift in the US Treasury bond yield curve that signals potential recession that adds pressure to the dollar and adds momentum to the pairís intraday positive momentum.    The price rose higher than 1.   1400 handle, close to the weekly high on Tuesday.    It has been moving steadily and oscillating in a narrow trading band during the Asian session.    Now, investors are monitoring the US NFP monthly jobs reports that could drive a significant momentum today.    Yet, trades still have to be heedful with nearing OMC monetary policy decision in the latter days of the month.    Thus, there are less expectations for the day and resume its trading range-bound in a broader trading range.

The US dollar dropped below Friday session that has further lower by the unexpected monthly jobs report and shows the economy gained only 155,000 new jobs in November.   Dovish comments by the Fed governor Lael Brainard and St.   Louis Fed President James Bullard support the comments of the postponement of the Fed rate hike cycle in 2019.   Selling greenback has boosted the economy over signs of weaker economic growth in the eurozone and pushed for a steady ascent of the euro major pair, ending the week with optimism, just higher than 1.  1400 handle.   Another report of the third quarter GDP revision shown an annual growth rate of 1.  6 percent, slightly lower than the forecast of 1.  7 percent.   Nevertheless, this had a few impacts on sales.   

Reports on China import and export growth figure published over the weekend that instilled fears of global growth slowdown and chances to postpone the Fed rate hike in 2019.   Moreover, worsening trade tension between the US and China, as well as the arrest of top Chinese executive in Canada, has added weight to the sentiment of investors and cap the rally despite important economic reports from the euro or the US.   The dollar sell-off will probably continue until the European market hours given the dovish turn of Fed expectation that is favorable for US dollar denominated global currencies in depreciating exchange rate.   

Both of the US and European markets are subdued but we can anticipate for the release of job openings reports to be hawkish that could boost the US greenback broad-based market sentiment.   On a technical aspect, the pair was able to clear a significant descending resistance trend line and a part of the symmetrical triangle on the daily chart was established.

The euro major pair induced a bearish outside reversal on Monday and was not successful to breakthrough the symmetrical triangle on another Brexit uncertainty.  The UK Prime Minister Theresa May postponed the vote on the exit deal which was already anticipated.  The added pressure pushed the British currency since April last year and adds pressure to the risky assets resulted in picking up momentum to the safe haven bidding of the US dollar in the broad market.   Furthermore, the possibility of a hard Brexit to continue in the past 24 hours.  Hence, risky assets may gain more pressure at least until the uncertainty of Brexit was removed.  Euro was also pushed down in the broad market yesterday as French President Macron announced economic emergency regarding the yellow vest protests. 

The spread between the US 10-year yield and its German counterpart was 260 basis points, which was the lowest level since October 1.  On a technical aspect, the sudden overnight retracement resulted in a short-term bullish breakout that may lead to a fake-out.  The weakness lower than the area of 1. 1350-45, it strengthens the possibility of a breakout and hastens the movement towards another ascending trend-line support.  A continuous weakened movement will push the pair in returning to the yearly lows of 1. 1215.  On the other hand, a breakout in the solid resistance will likely move the pair towards the 1. 1500 level.
