    EURUSD remains vulnerable into ECB meeting and Fed Minutes

    The Euro remains somewhat vulnerable sustaining losses versus many major currencies through March, most notably the US Dollar, but including the Canadian and Australian Dollars and to a lesser extent the Pound.
    This has primary reflected a still very dovish ECB and a deterioration in European economic data, mostly in Germany in the past month.
    Furthermore, the US$ has displayed a solid tone, strengthening against most major currencies throughout March, with global economic slowdown concerns seeing the US currency bought as a safe haven (despite a more dovish tone from the Federal Reserve).
    Today, the Forex market sees both an ECB Meeting and the release of the latest FOMC Minutes, which could combine to see a significant move in EURUSD, with the technical risks skewed towards the downside.

    Euro weakness continues post-ECB

    In our article on Monday 21st January we highlighted downside risks for the Euro into Thursday’s ECB Meeting.
    The Euro stayed negative ahead of the Meeting, and has seen further weakness since, with EURUSD surrendering notable support (see below).
    This leaves the Euro vulnerable against major currencies, and in particular versus the US Dollar.

    EURUSD downside threats ahead of Thursday’s ECB Meeting

    The Euro has come under broad negative pressures through mid-January, driven by continuing political turmoil in France and Italy, plus in Greece, Tsipras called and closely survived a vote of no confidence.
    Furthermore, the European Central Bank had been expected to begin to tighten up their very accommodative monetary policy and maybe start hiking rates by summer 2019. Disappointing inflation data is still the major concern for the ECB President, Mario Draghi and ahead of Thursday’s ECB Meeting, he cautioned markets last week that significant improvement would be required to see the rate hiking cycle commence.
    This sent the Euro lower and leaves the spotlight on further comments on the Thursday 24th January meeting.

    EURUSD poised for a more positive signal with Draghi speaking today

    A more positive “risk on” theme in early September has seen both a modest weakening of the US Dollar, alongside a more resilient tone for the Euro, which has pushed EURUSD back to the upper end of a multi-week, broader range environment.
    From a technical perspective, this leaves risks for an intermediate-term bullish shift for EURUSD, but from our viewpoint only triggered by a push up through 1.1791.
    Mario Draghi, the ECB President is speaking this morning, which could provide the trigger for such a bullish statement for the EURUSD currency rate.
    Furthermore, the pan-European equity benchmark average, the Euro STOXX 50 is attempting a basing pattern, which could also see upside potential in the short-term.

    Inertia grabs a hold of FX markets
    FX markets are close to a state of inertia. The intraday to-ing and fro-ing in the major G-10 currency pairs is just noise, akin to the sound of beer sloshing in the glass as you move from the bar to the patio chair.

    The Donald does in the dollar
    Friday summer markets are loopy and today is a prime example. Traders are dealing with rising trade tensions, a not-so-stealthy Chinese currency devaluation, more hostile trade rhetoric and President Trump’s beef about the Fed raising rates was bad enough, but the kicker was when he complained about currency valuations.
