Forex Technical & Market Analysis FXCC May 07 2013

EUR/USD still searching for direction after busy week of economic data

After what was an extremely busy week of economic releases and central bank monetary policy meetings, the EUR/USD finished the week up 87 pips at 1.3116. The price action remains extremely choppy with neither side being able to sustain any follow through for a substantial amount of time. Many analysts are now wondering whether or not the “risk on” mentality which was boosted by the better than expected US Jobs data will have any follow through going into upcoming week and how will it influence the foreign exchange market.

According to Kathy Lien of BK Asset Management, “Investors put on their rose colored glasses today and drove currencies and equities sharply higher on the back of stronger job growth in the month of April. At a time when other central banks like the ECB and BoJ are kick starting a new round of easing, the better than expected labor market report will keep the Fed comfortably on hold. The question now is whether the payroll driven rally in FX (and stocks) will last. With far less important data on the calendar next week, we think investors will remain optimistic.”

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Up
TREND CONDITION : Upward penetration
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Low

Upwards scenario: Medium term bias remains positive however further market rise is limited now to the key resistive barrier at 99.27 (R1), clearance here is required to enable next resistances at 99.60 (R2) and last one at 99.88 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the short-term perspective the pair might encounter supportive measures at 98.97 (S1). Loss here might change intraday technical structure and opens the way for a test of 98.57 (S2) and 98.15 (S3) later on today.
