EUR/USD UNDER PRESSURE YET AGAIN, US PMI IN SIGHT


EUR/USD ended 2016 and started 2017 extending bearish momentum following strong greenback bulls today, and ECB non changed bid rate policy plus 20B cut from 80B EUR bond purchasing, which market received with negative reaction towards the EURO following lack of confidence after UK breaking EURO zone. Earlier, the pair opened 2017 sessions at 1.0452, peeked to 1.0490 high, then faded away from 1.04 level, failing to guard it, sank to 1.0390, at which the pair is currently trading. EUR/USD collapsed today following strong US index peeking to 103.40. On the other hand, EUR index dropped to 85.75 dropping from 86.41 top. Today, US index will undergo a further test when US local PMI is released at 3:00 PM, published by Institute of Supply management. Also, tomorrow EUR PMI will be published at 8:55 AM GMT. Market is ignoring EUR data and has its eye set on US data and US index which they both have more impact on the cable.

Trend : Bearish Sideways -- The downside prevails

Key levels to watch : Weekly Pp 1.0513


Fibonacci resistance levels : R1 (38.2) 1.478, R2 (50) 1.0478, R3 (61.8) 1.0511, R4 1.0590

Support levels : S1 1.0372. S2 1.0351, S3 1.0322, S4 1.0295

Remark : The market overall remains bearish and closing under Friday's suggests that bear forces retain control. A close under S1 is will encourage further selloffs. A penetration for S2 could send wash towards S3 & S4 levels. On the other hand, a close above R4 will spark 100 Fibonacci level at 1.0651 which will spark the bullish momentum for EUR/USD. Keep eye on US index level as it lays heavily on EUR/USD plus today's US local PMI at 3:00 PM GMT will bring new perspectives for the cable.
