Talking Down the EUR

The euro came under selling pressure today against the U.S. dollar after European Industry Commissioner Tajani tried to talk down the currency. As the head of an agency whose goal is to protect the export sector, Tajani complained that the euro is too strong and called on the central bank to manage the currency in a way that would help exports. Considering that the euro has been in a downtrend since the beginning of the month and has lost over 5% since the beginning of February, some investors may be surprised by the timing of Tajani's comments. However it is clear that underperformance of the Eurozone economy, which is currently in recession is a big motivation for industry officials, politicians and central bankers to make overtures to weaken the euro now versus February. In addition, with the currency in a downtrend, comments such as these will have a greater impact on the euro. As the ECB considers whether to introduce negative deposit rates or purchases of asset backed securities, a weaker currency will provide additional support to the region's economy.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: 20 SMA acts as next resistance level at 1.2886 (R1). Penetration above that mark might trigger upside pressure and expose our next resistive mean at 1.2911 (R2) en route towards to final target for today at 1.2937 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, successful retest of our next support level at 1.2843 (S1) Market would create a signal of bearish sentiment and enable our interim target at 1.2819 (S2). Final support for today locates at 1.2794 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.2886, 1.2911, 1.2937
Support Levels: 1.2843, 1.2819, 1.2794

GBPUSD :
HIGH 1.52822 LOW 1.52366 BID 1.52521 ASK 1.52533 CHANGE -0.1% TIME 08 : 26:30

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Down
TREND CONDITION : Downward penetration
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

Upwards scenario: A bearish tone dominates during the Asian session however further buying interest might arise above the resistance at 1.5281 (R1). Clearance here would suggest next intraday target at 1.5315 (R2) and if the price holds its momentum we can expect an increase towards to 1.5351 (R3). Downwards scenario: If the price failed to establish further positive bias today, likely we will see retest of our key support level at 1.5228 (S1). Break here is required to enable initial lower targets at 1.5194 (S2) and 1.5163 (S3) in potential.

Resistance Levels: 1.5281, 1.5315, 1.5351
Support Levels: 1.5228, 1.5194, 1.5163

USDJPY :
HIGH 102.371 LOW 102.08 BID 102.291 ASK 102.295 CHANGE 0.04% TIME 08 : 26:31

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Neutral
TREND CONDITION : Sideway
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

Upwards scenario: Neutral channel formation remains in play on the hourly chart. Our next resistance level is placed at 102.47 (R1). Strengthening above it would point to resistive structure at 102.81 (R2) onto 103.14 (R3). Downwards scenario: Possible downtrend evolvement might occur below the immediate support level at 102.05 (S1). Clearance here is required to enable our next targets at 101.70 (S2) and 101.36 (S3) in potential.

Resistance Levels: 102.47, 102.81, 103.14
Support Levels: 102.05, 101.70, 101.36
