EUR/USD barely above 1.3000 in late Asia

EUR/USD heads into London session open ending the Asian trade at 1.3018, near session and fresh 5-week lows at 1.3009, losing some -0.43% from its opening price around 1.3075, and session highs at 1.3096. Local share markets are in the red with Nikkei lower by -1.33% and oil and gold also both at session lows, gold just breaking below Friday's lows. The Yen is reigning so far this Monday, benefited by the ballooning Spanish 10-yr bond yields, which recently hit the 6%, coupled with short-term negative effects on the Chinese band widening, seen as factor that will increase market volatility.

AUD/JPY has traded down to as low as 83.41 late Friday so far this Monday in Asia fueled by risk off flows triggered by the PBOC’s decision Saturday to widen the USD/CNY trading band. EUR/JPY has broken below support in the 105.45-50 area and is now targeting lower levels, last at 105.30 vs 105.92 late Friday in New York.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

EURUSD after the pair formed a high at 1.3214 it fell for 2 consecutive days and formed a bottom at 1.3004 (S1) a significant technical and psychological level. A break below that level will confirm our short positions towards 1.2951 (S2) and a further fall with then be limited to 1.2913 (S3). On the other hand if the price manages to stay above 1.3004 (S1) we expect the price to retest 1.3048 (R1) and if a break happens above that level we expect the price to move towards next upwards objective at 1.3140 (R2) and to give a ‘big breath’ to the bulls as 1.3000 levels are crucial for them.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

USDJPY couldn’t hold this morning and fell, breaking below our Friday’s support level. A break below 80.35 would suggest a target at 79.67 (S2) and a further fall will focus attention on 79.13 (S3) a significant technical and psychological level. The short positions are supported by the Moving Averages 10 – 20 that are both bearish. A stop loss should be placed at 81.20 (R1).

After the EURUSD formed a bottom at 1.3000 (S2) the pair rose and penetrated upwards all of our resistance levels forming a new high (intraday) at 1.3147 (R1). If it breaks above that level we can expect a target at 1.3214 (R2). On the other hand if a break occurs below the first support at 1.3047 (S1) expect the price to retest 1.3000 (S2) a strong technical and psychological level for the bulls.

EUR/USD unchanged above 1.3120

EUR/USD kept during the Asian trade with its tight range since late Monday in NY, showing no change today from yesterday's open in Asia-Pacific, trading at 1.3123 as last, with a session high at 1.3140, and a low at 1.3109. Risk appetite also had another round in the local share markets, with Nikkei higher by +1.81% despite the bad Chinese housing data coming out, and gold also on the rise above $1650. Yen selling was the way to go today in the Asian trade. For the London session ahead everybody will be waiting for tomorrow's 10 year Spanish bond auction, as for today's agenda there will only be two significant risk events EUR related during the European morning, current account for the EU

The AUD/USD has slipped below 1.0400 after a collection of Aussie negative news coming down the pipe just as the HK market prints its first ticks. The pair has failed to break yesterday's high at 1.0415, pulling back to current 1.0396 level.

A break above 1.5951 (R1) would suggest a target of 1.5984 (R2) and a further rise will then focus on the next target at 1.6048 (R3). On the downside, if the price breaks below the first support level of 1.5909 (S1) we can expect retesting of 1.5858 (S2).

EUR/USD capped below 1.3150 ahead of German IFO business climate

EUR/USD kept on tightening its trading range once again during the Asia-Pacífic session in the last trading day of the week in the region, last at 1.3145, with session highs at 1.3154 and lows at 1.3128. Daily 14 ATR volatility indicator shows a record low reading since early December last year, indicative of the very thin range the pair has trade within this week, ahead of a pretty bussy next week. Local share markets trade with no exception in the red with Nikkei down by -0.39%. The London session ahead has a main risk even in the form of German Ifo Business Climate index, expected to come in line with previous, which will set the pace for EUR/USD at 08:00 GMT, till next key risk event follows thru at 12:30 GMT in the form of US CPI figures. IMF and G20 meetings also start today, with French first round elections to take place Sunday, and Sarkozy starting to feel the pain in the polls.

The EUR/AUD cross has touched a fresh 7-day high of 1.2736 this Friday in Asia, largely on the back of Aussie weakness after the export price index fell 7.0% in the first quarter versus expectations of a 0.2% decline, adding to views that Australia’s terms of trade are poised to cool in the months ahead. The pair is now at 1.2730 vs. 1.2714 late Thursday in New York, recording a modest 0.1% gain on the day, amid a relatively quiet session in FX. AUD/USD trades at 1.0320 vs 1.0322 before the release.

EURUSD didn’t made any significant moves yesterday as it traded in a trading range between 1.3153 (R1) and 1.3057 (S1) level. The only difference from the last trading session is that the pair is moving just below the first resistance level. We remain flat on EURUSD until we see a clear break out and in which direction it will move to develop an uptrend or a downtrend with more reliable support and resistance levels. No position.

A break above 1.6072 (R1) would suggest a target of 1.6129 (R2) and a further rise will then focus on the next target at 1.6178 (R3). On the downside, if the price breaks below the first support level of 1.6009 (S1) we can expect retesting of 1.5963 (S2).

EUR/USD steady below 1.3200

EUR/USD has been around the 1.3200 round mark up and down during Asian session, last at 1.3194, printing session lows at 1.3177 and highs at 1.3209, slightly below Friday's close. Local share markets trade in the red overall, with Nikkei index down by -0.19%. For the London session ahead not many big risk events Euro related will come out but PMI figures, first French one at 07:00 GMT, followed by Germany one half hour later, and EU manufacturing PMI at 08:00 GMT, all of them expected to come slightly better than previous.

Investors are fleeing the Australian Dollar through the Asian session on a lower-than-expected Australian PPI print, which came at +1.4 YoY, -0.3 QoQ actual against 2.2%, 0.4% consensus, respectively. The Australian Dollar had been trading sluggish in the lead-up to the event as equity markets turned from flat to red territory despite last Friday's risk appetite mood. The results make the case for an RBA rate cut in the next policy meeting even more likely now.

EURUSD gained momentum in Friday’s session and formed a higher bottom and top, successfully penetrating Friday's resistance level. After that the price found a strong resistance at 1.3214 (R1) a strong technical level. We expect the price to move upwards but only a break above 1.3214 (R1) will give as a confirmation for long positions targeting 1.3269(R2) and further rise will then be limited at 1.3313 (R3). A stop loss should be placed above 1.3153 (S1).

On the other hand, if the price does not manage to break above 81.77 (R1) we can expect the pair to retest support at 81.20 (S1) and a break below that level would suggest target at 80.73 (S2).

EUR/USD quiet in Asia despite markets turmoil; holds above 1.3150

EUR/USD is quietly trading within a descending tight channel of less than 20 pips wide 1.3145/57 since NY close, last at 1.3152, despite big moves in Aussie and Yen in Asia-Pacífic trade. EUR/AUD is currently printing fresh 2-week highs at 1.2822 after much lower than expected Aus 1Q CPI showed a 0.1% increase while some +0.6% was expected, which opens the RBA doors for a rate cut next meeting May 1st. Local share markets are trading overall deep in the red. London session ahead brings a relatively quiet agenda in EUR macro data related with only EU industrial new orders at 09:00 GMT, though several sovereign debt auctions will take place, including short term Spanish one and longer term Italy and Netherlands from 08:00 to 09:00 GMT. Market will test Netherlands yields after recent government debacle.

AUD/USD has come under a new round of selling pressure on risk-off flows after soft consumer inflation data from down under, which has reinforced the case for a 25 basis point interest rate cut by the RBA at its meeting next week, and a possible 50 basis point rate cut over the next few months. The pair has pushed to a fresh 2-week low of 1.0246, down 0.7% from 1.0318 late Monday in New York.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

EURUSD fell sharply and formed a strong support level close to 1.3100. Following that the price rebounded and broke above our Friday’s support and now is moving between that level and 1.3181 level. A break above that level we suggest further rise towards 1.3226 (R2) and further rise will then focus on next target at 1.3287 (R3). On the other hand if the price manages to stay below our first resistance level of 1.3181 (R1) then we expect the price to retest 1.3118 (S1) and a break below that level then the expected target is at 1.3057 (S2).

A break below that level would suggest target at 80.29 (S2) and further fall will then focus on 79.57 (S3). Look for short positions in today’s trading session, as this is supported by the fact that both of our Moving Averages are turned bearish and are proving a strong resistance to the price.

EUR/USD around 1.3200 ahead of FOMC

EUR/USD keeps struggling around 1.3200 mark last at 1.3196, trading a tight range during Asian session, with highs at 1.3207, and lows at 1.3191. The pair has not moved much since yesterday's NY open, closing the gap lower with which opened Monday with yesterday's highs at 1.3220 ahead of today's FOMC at 16:30 GMT and further economic projections and press conference at 18:00-18:15 GMT. The London session ahead will also bring ECB chairman Mario Draghi testifying before European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Committee in Brussels at 07:00 GMT, German 30 year bond auction at 09:00 GMT, and UK GDP at 08:30 GMT which could have an impact on EUR/GBP.

USD/JPY’s overnight bounce from 80.84 has extended above the 81.50 price zone in quiet Asia-Pacific trading, having touched a session high of 81.55 as the market holds a bullish tone ahead of the BOJ meeting on Friday.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

EURUSD has been moving upwards since the middle of April and the bulls face a major hurdle at the 1.3226 level (resistance), a level that is significant both, psychologically and technically. A break above 1.3226 (R1) would suggest a target at 1.3287 (R2) and further rise will then be limited to 1.3351 (R3). On the other hand if the price manages to stay below our first resistance level then we expect the price to retest 1.3180 (S1) and if a break occurs below that level the expected target is at 1.3118 (S2).

EUR/USD holds steady ahead of EZ, Germany data

EUR/USD has traded a very limited range in Asia between 1.3215 and 1.3232, hovering below its 3-week high after the dollar took a recent hit on USD-negative comments from the Fed, in particular, that the central bank stands ready to use additional measures (more QE) if necessary, which fueled a broad greenback selloff. In the European session ahead, the risk focus for EUR will be Euro-zone consumer confidence data along with Euro-zone economic and industrial confidence data for April, due for release at 09:00 GMT. A few hours later, at 12:30 GMT, German CPI figures are to be published, with economists anticipating a +2.0% reading in the year to April.

EUR/JPY extended its bounce from the 50% retracement of the 104.60/107.98 upswing in overnight trading, reaching the 107.65 price zone before closing at 107.50. So far in Asia, the pair is edging lower, on the verge of losing all of the previous day’s gains, last at 107.33.

The EURUSD didn’t make any significant moves in yesterday’s trading session as it moved between the first support and resistance level.

On the other hand, if the pair breaks above the first resistance level of 1.3234 (R1), we would expect the price to retest 1.3275 (R2) and a further rise will then focus at 1.3341(R3).

After that the price bounced from 81.00 level and moved upwards successfully penetrating our resistance level. It seems that the pair is gaining momentum and is moving towards 81.77. A break above that level would suggest a target at 82.42 (R2) a strong technical level. Look for long positions above 81.77 (R1) targeting 82.42 (R2).

EUR/USD quiet around 1.3200

EUR/USD is currently at 1.3203, holding below yesterday's lows, previous to the S&P announcement of the Spanish sovereign debt downgrade two notches from A to BBB+. The pair fell from NY close price around 1.3240 to as low as 1.3178 on the news, recovering from there till current quotes with not much of a move since then, for the last 4 hours moving in a 20 pip range. The session ahead for London shows a moderately soft agenda in terms of EUR data related, with GfK German consumer climate and German import prices on monthly basis at 06:00 GMT, followed by French consumer spending 45 minutes later, and several Spanish minor data coming out along the European morning. Market will also pay attention to Italian bond auctions at 09:00 GMT, in order to find what resulting yields come out from the auctions.

The cross EUR/AUD is currently trading at 1.2717 near a double session low, down from a 3-day move lower started Tuesday at double 1.2835 highs following much worse than expected CPI numbers from Australia. It is down by -0.34% since yesterday's Asia-Pacific opening price

EURUSD trapped in Trading Range

EUR/USD is currently at 1.3249, near the upper bound of the tiny range the pair has traded into this Monday in Asia-Pacific, with main markets Japan and China closed for Golden Week holiday. US and European share markets point for a marginal higher open, according to their futures. For the London session ahead agenda shows German retail sales at 06:00 GMT as EUR macro data related, followed by EU M3 money supply and private loans at 08:00 GMT and CPI figures at 09:00 GMT, as well as short term sovereign debt auctions from France along the European morning.

Despite the Bank of Japan expanded its QE program by JPY5trn to JPY70trn last Friday in Asia, an outcome in line with expectations, the measure seems to have underwhelmed the market, which continues to buy the Yen ignoring the recent aggressive monetary easing.

EUR/AUD back to last week highs above 1.2800

EUR/AUD is shooting up after RBA cut 50pbs to 3.75% sending AUD/USD to fresh 4-day lows now around 1.0340, while EUR/USD is climbing higher now stalling below 1.3260, making the cross reaching the 1.2825 mark. The cross is higher by more than 170 pips in the week or a +1.29% increase, while more than half of that is just from the RBA just released rates. EUR/AUD is stalling ahead of past Tuesday's highs at 1.2836, printing a fresh session high at 1.2825, last at 1.2812 bids.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

The EURUSD formed a top on yesterday’s session at 1.3269 (R1) and then fell forming a new low at 1.3208. Now it seems it is moving away from this level to retest the resistance levels. A break above 1.3269 (R1) would suggest a target of 1.3313 (R2) and a further rise will then focus on the next target at 1.3367 (R3). On the downside, if the price breaks below the first support level of 1.3208 (S1) we can expect retesting of 1.3156 (S2). A further decline will then bring focus to the next support level at 1.3104(S3).

After a successful run since the beginning of April, GBPUSD formed a top in yesterday’s trading session at 1.6301 (R1) and fell creating a support level near 1.6200. Yesterday the price was able to break above the same level (S1), and now is moving downwards for a correction. Our recommendation for today’s trading session is look for long position between 1.6200 and 1.6134 level. A stop loss should be placed at 1.6078 (S3).

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

The EURUSD didn’t made any significant moves yesterday as it traded in a consolidation mode between the 1.3203 (S1) and 1.3283 (R1) levels. A break below 1.3203 would suggest a target at 1.3156 (S2) and further fall will then focus on 1.3104 (S3) a strong technical and psychological level. On the other hand if the price manages to stay above the first support (S1) level we expect the price to retest 1.3283 (R1) and a break above that level will concentrate our focus on 1.3381(R3).

The GBPUSD fell yesterday and was supported at 1.6186 (S1) a strong technical level (correction). The price then rose and was able to break above yesterday's resistance completing a close just above our Fibonacci level 38.2%.

On the downside, a break below 80.05 (S1) would suggest target at 79.65 (S2) and further fall will then be limited at 79.13 (S3).

EUR/USD below 1.3150 ahead of ECB

EUR/USD is currently at 1.3145 off session lows at 1.3137, coming lower from NY session highs 1.3167, in a relatively quiet Asia-Pacific session with Tokyo closed for holiday. Local open share markets trade in the red over all, with Shanghai index leading the way lower with some -1.85%. The London session ahead shows a busy agenda though not because of many risk events but because of very key ones, including ECB interest rate statement at 11:45 GMT this time extraordinarily coming from Barcelona, followed by press conference at 12:30 GMT. Also at 09:00 GMT will come EU monthly PPI, but more importantly, two major bond auctions will take place along the European morning, from Spain and France at 08:30 and 08:50 GMT respectively.

Cable is quietly trading within a tight range 1.6207/1.6188 since early NY, last at 1.6195, lower by -0.15% since yesterday's Asia-Pacific open. The pair is down for the week some -0.43% after hitting fresh 7-month highs Monday at 1.6301, now retreating from there with weekly lows yesterday at 1.6162.

Greece expected to leave the Eurozone

Global markets continued to fall, including equities, and commodities as investors were in full risk aversion mode. Traders are moving in droves to the safe harbor, of the US dollar and the Japanese Yen. Political turmoil ranging from France to Greece has upset markets. The EU had stated that they will without the rest of the bailout money from Greece until political issues are resolved. In Spain, the government has had to step in and take over the largest bank, Bankia. Economic worries have spooked markets and forced Spain’s borrowing costs to skyrocket.Gold continues to decline along with oil. Yesterday the EIA release crude oil inventory reports showing that crude oil inventories had continued to rise. In early morning Asian news, equity markets continued to decline, as data released in China showed a continued slowdown, while Australia reported a better the forecast unemployment report.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

The euro is weak, having lost close to 0.2% against the USD, but still trading within Wednesdays range. The inability to break below 1.2955 was reassuring for EUR bulls in an environment where most drivers are turning rapidly bearish. Having broken the 1.2955 in yesterday, we will see the bears continue to gain strength. The markets are taking a breather this morning as the euro has recovered to 1.2951 after opening at 1.2927 It seems to be moving down again now and if there is a break below 1.2922 that could lead to an acceleration of the move lower, with support at 1.2818 targeted from both a monthly and a weekly pivot. A recovery on the other hand would most likely see the exchange rate struggle higher to fill the gap at 1.3080.

The 1.6142 line is now fluid, after providing support for the past two weeks. This is followed by the psychologically important support level of 1.60, which could be tested if the dollar continues to rally. Next, 1.5930, which saw a lot of movement by the pair in April, has been providing strong support for the pair. Below, there is support at 1.5805, which also was tested in April. The next support level is 1.5750, which has provided support since mid-March. The final line for now is 1.5648, which was last tested in March. Overall technicals are mixed ‐ indicators that remain bullish are waning, though near term support is found at the 21 day MA-1.6098. Resistance remains at the 9 day MA -1.6189

Technical are showing bearish ‐ the value of the RSI indicator is negative and declining, MACD is thinly negative and steady, while CCI has crossed down the 100 line on the 1-hour chart, giving over all short signals. A break above yesterday's top and nearest resistance 80.08 would encourage further recovery of the dollar. Immediate support is today's bottom at 79.60, and consistent break below it could strengthen the yen further down towards next target 78.76.

Eco Calendar thin keep an eye on Politics

Global equities continue to retreat despite a decent round of overnight fundamentals, as Greece's high stakes election drama weighs on market sentiment. European equity benchmarks are lower and Dow futures are suggesting a tiny drop at the market open. Global currency markets are divided with the A$, NZ$, pound sterling and CAD all up against the USD while the won, Scandinavian currencies and the rand are all lower and the euro is flat. Most European debt markets are rallying or are flat across 10s except for UK 10s that were disappointed by flat stimulus from the BoE.

Solid European manufacturing data didn’t much help the global market tone. French manufacturing production climbed 1.4% m/m and far surpassed consensus expectations for a small drop, even as total industrial production fell thanks to lower electricity and gas production following the prior month’s massive gain in this category. Italian manufacturing also climbed 0.5% and surpassed expectations. UK manufacturing production climbed 0.9% m/m which nearly doubled consensus. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is sticking to her guns and good for her. She reiterated this morning that deficit financed stimulus to growth is a misguided path, and that austerity is the only solution. This continues to put the Franco-German partnership on a collision course over the summer. In the US yesterday data was received with mixed sentiment. Chairman Bernanke’s speech was market neutral. Chinese data has been lackluster, but not market movers.

Major bearish reversal pattern has broken psychological support at 1.3000. A sustained close below 1.3000 unlocks the important multi-month reversal pattern for a fast move into 1.2626 (16 January). Only a sustained daily close back above 1.3284 puts this scenario on hold for a potential recovery into our upside target zone at 1.3430/60 (200-day average). Signals all continue to remain bearish

This may offer renewed buying opportunities. A sustained weakness beneath 80.00-80.12 (38.2% Fibonacci retrace/January advance), will lead to further setbacks into critical support at 79.16 (61.8% Fibonacci).

EU Finance Ministers call for Emergency Meeting.

Markets continue to reel over European uncertainties as they open the week in risk-aversion mode. Greece was unable to form a government over the weekend, and will go back to the polls to try to elect new parties. Spain’s ongoing financial woes and growing worries over the banks in Spain also weigh on the markets. The US dollar and the Japanese Yen, continue to maintain strength as investor’s park funds in safe havens. Gold and crude oil continue to fall, as most USD denominated currencies cannot support the high dollar at present. Even gold trading under the 1600 price is too expensive with the current dollar value. The early part of the week, is thin on eco data, but should be big in political drama as the EU Finance Ministers have called an Emergency meeting today to discuss the future of Greece.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

The sustained close below 1.3000 unlocked the important multi-month reversal pattern for a fast move into 1.2626 (16 January swing low). This morning MA 10 -20 all read sell, technical indicators are all reading sell, although the 5day MA is a buy signal. This might be an opportunity to buy on the dips below the 1.29 price. Support is found at the 1.28 level. Meanwhile, only a sustained daily close back above 1.3284 (01st May high), puts this scenario on hold for a potential recovery into our upside target zone at 1.3430/60 (200-day average).

The pair will most likely recapture of 1.6199 suggesting completion of the correction, setting the stage for an attack on 1.6302 then 1.6500/1.6618 (psychological/August reaction high) as the bull run extends.

The yen’s bearish pullback remains weak beneath but has pushed through the key psychological level at 80.00. We are looking at weakness beneath 80.00-80.12 (38.2% Fibonacci retrace/January advance), which will lead to further setbacks into critical support at 79.16 (61.8% Fibonacci). Today’s momentum pushes within a multi-week bear channel. Only a snap back above the upper ceiling near 80.50 signals a potential recovery higher into 82.00.

Hollande Sworn in as President of France Today

Today, French President elect Hollande will be sworn into office. Over the next few weeks he will build a government, in the meantime he will appoint an temporary government. These appointments should give us some insight into his economic and financial plans and thoughts.The negative sentiment from the eurozone colors the global markets, as risk aversion remains the mode. With the leadership and the direction of the EU in question and the ongoing turmoil in Greece and increasing debt problems in Spain, markets are worried about who and how the eurozone will attempt to control and turn around the future of Europe. Data out this week might show that the eurozone has slipped back into recession. The overflow of the eurozone declining economic situation is harming its neighbors around the globe from China to the US. Commodities continue to fall, especially those that are USD denominated. The yen is reaching historical highs, which is a difficult situation for Japan. The USD still remains strong. Greece either leaving or being ousted from the euro becomes more likely each passing day.

This appears to have corrected the last up move. We should see an initial bounce to go to 1.6125. We are bullish above 1.6125 to the R5 at 1.6199 with the lower target at the support at 1.6014.

The euro continues to plunge

While the broad sentiments prevailing in the market continue to be bearish, commodities and shares were seen rising following a rebound in euro. Recovery in Euro from a four month low after a surprisingly strong German GDP data took the pressure off the market and slightly lifted the sentiments. German economy grew 0.5 per cent in the first quarter against the expectation of 0.1 per cent. Euro Zone GDP data indicated that the region avoided recession though the economy continued to remain fragile. However, the overall sentiments were feeble on deepening worries over euro zone crisis and political uncertainty in Greece. Shortly after the exhilaration wore off the euro began to plummet hitting new recent lows to trade at this time at 1.2724.

Market mood continue to remain skeptical as investors fretted about the possibility of a Greek exit from the Euro zone. Financial markets would be fervently watching out for political events in Europe for further cues. With Europe reeling under both financial and political strain, all eyes are on today’s meet between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and new French president Francois Hollande. US eco data was neutral, with retail sales coming in soft.

The Euro fell to quickly in Asian trading to validate the downtrend it also has pushed indicators and oscillators to their maximum reading, Current reading are miscued. We will have to re-evaluate numbers and movement later today. The price action on Monday was negative, and the fact that the 1.29 level finally gave way we showed support had been broken. The 1.29 was the last remnant of the support level in our view. The 1.26 level looks to be the next major support level, and although there will be bounces along the way, the headlines should continue to punish the Euro going forward. However, this pair will more than likely continue to be choppy. We would sell rallies on signs of failure, and a break below the Monday lows.

The next resistance above 1.6160 is a declining trend line which should meet price in the 1.6250-1.6280 area. Technicals all remain bearish with support at 1.6000, though downside set to continue.

Negative Sentiment and Risk Aversion Continue

Positive US economic data failed to lift markets. While US April housing starts were higher and industrial production rebounded, US markets sold off as the trading session continued, slipping on news that the ECB might cut funding to Greek banks. US equity indices were down by roughly 0.5% while Canadian equities performed somewhat more strongly. WTI fell by US$1.30 to close at $92.68 and the DXY was up moderately on the session. For a full write-up of today’s US and Canada economic data releases, please see the Economic Data Recap section below.

The Fed released the minutes from its April 24-25 meeting today, and they are making headlines for reasons that we find hard to discern. The minutes included the sentence “several members indicated that additional monetary policy accommodation could be necessary if the economic recovery lost momentum or the downside risks to the forecast became great.” Minutes from the March 13 meeting said “A couple of members indicated that the initiation of additional stimulus could become necessary if the economy lost momentum or if inflation seemed likely to remain below its mandate-consistent rate of 2 percent over the medium run.” Market sentiment will remain negative towards Europe and the continued sell off of European assets is ongoing. Without some positive news or results in Greece, with lack of overall guidance by the EU and continued worries about Spain, the current situation is expected to hold.

Euro breaks below 1.25 on Spanish downgrade

Equities traded higher today, with US and Canadian markets rallying on news that China might undertake meaningful fiscal stimulus. While industrial metals stocks rallied with the base metals complex, gold stocks fell by 2.4% and gold fell 1.7%. Industrial companies led the way in the US, with the Industrial Engineering subsector appreciating 1.9% while the S&P 500 was up by 0.87%. In short, the ‘China trade’ was in full swing today at least as far as equity markets in Canada and the US was concerned.

While stocks were up, the US dollar was not down: the US dollar index is now trading at its highest level since last September. The Euro broke below the 1.25 EURUSD level mid-day and stayed there for most of the afternoon before rallying back to the 1.25 level at the close. EURUSD continues to make new intraday lows for 2012.

The market is making lower highs, and higher lows, reflecting a slowing of volatility. The RSI has resorted to the 40-60 range, reflecting consolidation momentum. Also the moving averages are converging together suggesting that the market has been clueless in which direction to take in the 1H time-frame. Giving us the classic congestion breakout, which doesn't always translate into a strong directional clue, but in the short-term, we can be seeing some growth of volatility after the convergence and retest of consolidation highs or low. To the topside, the 80-80.10 area is the very short-term resistance, while the 79.00 area is the support. We are trading in the middle near 79.50.

Spain becoming a major financial problem

News out of Europe was highly confusing. One day after unnamed European officials were quoted in the financial press officially denying the possibility that collective European funds would be used to bail out Spanish banks, the European Commission publicly “envisaged” the possibility of a European banking union and direct capital injections into troubled European lenders. Rather than giving markets cause to believe that rescue is imminent, the entire episode points to the reality, seriousness, and immediacy of the problems confronting the European economy – something which markets shrugged off during Q1 2012. Markets may have spent most of the first part of this year weighing whether US jobs were growing at a pace of 200k or 250k per month and whether the S&P 500 should trade above or below the 1400 level, but the focus is now on more ominous issues: the financial crisis in Spain and the cooling of the economy in China, with a healthy dose of concern that a left-wing Greek government might hit the ‘euro exit’ panic button.

Unsurprisingly, on a day during which cash was king, the USD outperformed. EURUSD closed at 1.237 after convincingly breaking through the 1.25 level yesterday. The commodity currencies followed suit, with CAD losing ground and USDCAD closing the day at 1.03.

The next major EUR support level is 1.2152, followed by the 2010 low of 1.1877. The market is notably one sided and shorts are at extreme levels, opening up the risk of short covering on any hint of an official response; however the bias remains to the downside, and accordingly we expect a temporary test of 1.2152.

However, once risk aversion passes, the outlook for GBPUSD is relatively positive, partially on the flows generated from its Triple‐A rating. Supports are seen at 1.5531/17 and then at 1.5415. On the other hand, resistance levels are seen at the 10-DMA line at 1.5713/35 and then at 1.5850.

Technicals are bearish but are beginning to become mixed, but trend is lower. Supports eyed at 78.56, which is the 200-DMA line. On the other hand, resistance levels are seen at 79.16/36 and then at the 21-DMA line at 79.72.

Spain contradicts the ECB, the EU, and the IMF

Equity markets in North America were mixed today with US equities flat while Canadian equities came in moderately positively (+0.72%). The catalyst in Canada was strong bank earnings: Canadian financial companies posted strong earnings over the past week and the sector rebounded accordingly today. Canadian financials were up by 1.55% (banks by 1.9%) while US financials were up by a more modest 0.85% (banks by 1.4%). Oil and Gas stocks held up moderately well in Canada (+0.11%) considering that WTI for delivery in July sold off by 1.4% and is currently trading at US$86.58/bbl.

Europe is clearly taking center stage at the moment, with headline like the FT website’s banner “Spain Reveals €100bn Capital Flight” garnering deserved attention (the details of the Banco De Espana study cited by the FT are slightly less bad: the capital flight occurred during Q1. But that leaves open the question ‘how much capital fled in Q2?’). With Europe gaining so much media space, we thought it might be worth turning the reader’s attention to data released in the US today which might have been overlooked – which were unfortunately rather bleak.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

EUR is oversold (RSI = 23) and the market is extremely one sided, leaving the currency vulnerable to short covering. Still the downward trend is strong (not to mention expensive to fight) and accordingly trading with the trend is likely the only near‐term alternative. Technical indicators are bearish, major signals still in sell territory and downward trend strong. Ignore RSI. Supports are seen at the 21-DMA lower Bollinger level at 1.2305 and then at 1.2190. On the other hand, resistance levels are seen at 1.2460, 1.2572 which is the 10-DMA line.

USDJPY continues to trend lower, data was mixed and even with USDJPY below 79.00, the BoJ and MoF appear to only be watching; however support at the 200‐day 78.63 looms. Technicals all read bearish, major signals in sell territory and strong downward trend. The USD trended lower throughout the session and fell below the key 200-DMA line at 78.63. In terms of technical levels, supports are seen at 78.30/18, while resistance levels are noted at 79.13, then at the 10-DMA line at .79.38

Asian markets fall on worries of the EU

In the week ahead, the global markets will continue to gyrate between fear of Greece’s fallout from the Euro zone and hopes of austerity measures that may revive the global markets. The European Union is targeting July 9 as the start date for its permanent eurozone rescue fund, the €500 bn (USD620 bn) European Stability Mechanism. Parliaments across the 17-nation currency union must ratify the fund before it becomes available to counter the financial crisis spawned in Greece.

Until it receives 90% of its expected capital allotment, officials must turn to the temporary European Financial Stability Facility, a €440 bn fund with €240 bn available. Even Italy might be seen pressurizing the ECB to print more Euros so that Italy can also be saved. So we think these measures will be following suit that will eventually decide the fate of the markets in the times to come.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

The EURUSD has dropped to its lowest level since July 2010. Interestingly, the low today is within pips of the 2008 (October) low. The sharp moderation warns that the EURUSD could consolidate or bounce modestly in the coming days, but the overall trend remains clear in our opinion and we favor continued declines until sentiment sees a more significant shift. The next support isn’t until 12150. Resistance is now around 125.00 although the breakdown level (January low) of 126.22 (and this week’s high) would be ideal to short into if reached.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

The market is heavily oversold, so some kind of a recovery may be expected early this week. If such a recovery indeed takes place, we may see gains to 1.5680 levels. Such a rally will likely be favored as selling opportunities by the big players, because the daily trend is down. On the downside, firm break below 1.5260/30 may bring a panic sell-off all the way down to 1.50000. There was no bounce of course (the GBPUSD didn’t even reach its 10 day average) and the GBPUSD took out nearly all of 2012’s gains in May and has reached the trendline that extends off of the 2009 and 2010 lows so we could get a bounce from these levels. If so, then resistance is 15530. A bounce into there would be a candidate to short against 15720.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

The USDJPY continues to slip and has reached the much discussed 7830 (resistance throughout late 2011). There is nothing to suggest that a low is in place right now and the next level of support is 7780. I’d be willing to try longs on a test and rebound from that level with an initial stop (plan on moving it up) below 7600. The chart shows trending conditions are quite negative here. The prices have not overcome the 83.80 level yet on a sustained basis and remain below the declining 100-week moving average. So, the main focus should be considered on the downside. Look for a possible move down from the 2007 top and if that's the case, the current pullback should hold above the 76.00 level. A subsequent move above 83.80 will turn the hourly chart quite bullish.
