The Week Ahead

EUR/USD: Still eyeing the 1.2740 before considering a bottom

The week comes to an end with the EUR/USD trading at its lowest level since June last year, having been pretty much falling steadily since posting a high around 1.3700 early July: the weekly chart shows one red candle after the other, with some small consolidations in between.

Vicki Schmelzer: Dollar correction is coming; USD/JPY's pullback at 110.00

MNI's Senior FX Reporter Vicki Schmelzer @MNIEyeOnFX says Dollar rally long in the tooth concurs with Dale on correction coming. Schmelzer points that USD/CAD favors move to 1.0800 and even 1.0750. She sees thr USD/JPY at 110.00 primed for a pullback.

Be Ready: The party is over, let's focus back in United States rates

What a week we had! Not sure where to start, yet can we agree that nothing was outstandingly dollar bullish? Yet the greenback trades at multi−month/years highs against most of its rivals. If that does not tell you something, I'm not sure what will.

EUR/USD: a bottom nearby? Despite trading at the year low, sentiment is not as negative as suspected, with bulls among banks pointing for a recovery above 1.3000.

GBP/USD downside limited on self strength: Pound is seen mildly higher against the greenback, with focus back on who will raise rate first.

USD/JPY bearish, but not that much: the pair presents a quite mixed outlook, with banks more inclined to a strong retracement towards 102.00.

AUD/USD still no clear picture: for second week in a row, market can’t made up its mind on what to do with Aussie, leaving a neutral outlook both short and midterm.

EUR/JPY slowly turning bullish: yen weakness is still seen leading the way in the pair, with gains expected now beyond 140.00 critical resistance.

Learn To Spot The Institutions' Sleight Of Hand

I will never forget the first time I saw David Copperfield, live in Las Vegas. I actually sat in the front row, near the middle. While I was excited to see him perform, like everyone else, I wanted to really figure out “how he did it.” I was so confident that with my great seats and him right in front of me, I would easily figure out the illusion.
