Good data on inflation led to the growth of the US dollar

The euro slumped in relation to the US dollar in the morning, before the release of important data on inflation in the US. The main reason for the pressure on the euro could be data on the slowdown in economic activity in Germany at the end of last year.

According to the report, Germany's GDP in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared with the previous quarter, increased by 0.6%. In annual terms, growth was 2.3%. These data fully coincided with the forecast of economists.

As noted in the statistics agency, the good growth rates are maintained due to the high external demand for premium goods. The acceleration of exports was also indicated.

Inflation in Germany slowed at the beginning of this year, which is an alarming call for the ECB. According to the data, the consumer price index fell by 0.7% in January of this year compared with December 2017, which fully coincided with the forecasts of economists. Core inflation fell by 1.0%.

Italy's GDP showed the fastest growth in the last seven years. According to the National Bureau of Statistics Istat, Italy's economy in 2017 grew by 1.6% compared with 2016.

As for the growth of the eurozone's GDP, the growth in the 4th quarter compared to the 3rd quarter was 0.6%, and compared to the same period in 2016, GDP increased by 2.7%. These data also fully coincided with the forecasts of economists.

The good economic indicators of the Eurozone at the end of 2017 have repeatedly led the European Central Bank to pay attention to the current situation in monetary policy, as well as the volume of the bond repurchase program, the reduction of which could lead to further euro growth in the medium term.

Data on the growth of inflation in the second half of Wednesday increased demand for the US dollar, which managed to regain even more positions lost at the beginning of the week against the euro and the British pound.

According to the report, the consumer price index in the US in January 2018 increased by 0.5%, exceeding the forecast of economists, who expected an increase in inflation of only 0.3%. Compared to the same period in 2017, inflation increased by 2.1%.


The base index, which does not take into account volatile prices, increased by 0.3% in January, with a growth forecast of 0.2%. Compared to the same period in 2017, the index grew by 1.8%.

Given such good performance, the short-term growth of the US dollar against the euro and the pound may continue, as it is possible that a good inflation rate in the US could seriously affect the Federal Reserve's decision on interest rates, which could again be hiked this spring.

The dollar takes the initiative

Positive macroeconomic data allowed the dollar to finally recoup from a prolonged fall caused by panic sell-offs in stock markets.

Against the euro, the dollar fell below the psychological level of 1.24, the reason was the increased demand for the dollar after unexpectedly positive data on the housing market for January. The number of new buildings grew by 9.7%, experts expected growth of only 3.4%, and also by 7.4% the number of building permits increased with a forecast of 3.5%. Growth in activity in the construction sector may lead to a slowdown in housing prices.

The University of Michigan's report on consumer confidence turned positive, the sentiment index rose to 99.9 against 95.7 in December, apparently, the mood of the taxation was positively influenced by the start of the tax reform, with a deterioration in sentiment rather than growth. The peak that was formed - the second since 2004 - indicates that in the American society, the perception of reforms is assessed positively.

In addition, the rise in prices for imports and exports were above forecasts, which will affect inflation, and we will get quite a confident growth in the dollar, even despite the recent turmoil in the stock market.

The forecast for GDP growth in the first quarter from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta improved slightly and amounts to 3.2% on Monday evening. The negative from the weak data on retail sales and consumer inflation is somewhat stable, the threat to the selling of the dollar has decreased significantly.

Markets can not yet understand how the tax reform will affect the US economy. In pre-election promises, Trump focused on the fact that he would begin to reduce the budget deficit and the huge debt, but in reality so far everything is developing in the opposite scenario. The budget deficit will significantly increase this year, as well as the level of public debt. As for the corporate sector, there is still no desire to reduce borrowing, on the contrary, the benefits of tax cuts can cause not a decrease in debt, but its growth - companies intend to issue more bonds this year than in 2017. This trend , if it is implemented, can completely reverse the intent of the tax reform on its head.

The key event of the upcoming week is the publication of the minutes of the FOMC meeting on January 31. The test of the statement slightly changed in regards to the meeting in December, but it was impossible to understand what estimate the members of the Cabinet gave to the launched tax reform. A detailed alignment can again lead to an increase in volatility, since the forecast for the number of rate hikes this year will directly depend on it. While the markets are confident of two increases in March and June, further opinions vary, and the protocol can greatly affect market sentiment. Business activity indexes from Markit will also be released on Wednesday.

At the moment, the dynamics of the indices is opposite, the production PMI rose in January to 55.5p compared to 55.1p in December, which indicates the strongest growth in the manufacturing industry since March 2015. Regional data show continued growth, the ISM index rose more than expected , so on Wednesday, most likely, there will be a confirmation of growth in business activity.

At the same time, in the service sector, activity slowed for several months in a row, which quite distorted the overall picture. It is expected that against the backdrop of growing consumer confidence and confident labor market data, the PMI index in the services sector will also show growth, which will provide additional support to the dollar.

Thus, by the end of the week, the dollar managed to survive the blow and has good chances to stay on the achieved levels.

Monday is a holiday in the US, so strong movements due to lack of objective data are not expected. The likelihood against commodity currencies appears to be at its highest, however, the yen will not enjoy less demand, the growth of usdjpy is unlikely. It is also possible to resume demand for gold and the Swiss franc.

Technical analysis of NZD/USD for February 21, 2018

Our first downside target which we predicted in yesterday's analysis has been hit. NZD/USD is still expected to trade with a bearish outlook. The pair is capped by a bearish trend line since February 16, which confirmed a negative outlook. The downward momentum is further reinforced by both declining 20-period and 50-period moving averages. The relative strength index lacks upward momentum.

To conclude, below 0.7375, look for a new drop with targets at 0.7305 and 0.7280 in extension.

The black line shows the pivot point. Currently, the price is above the pivot point, which is a signal for long positions. If it remains below the pivot point, it will indicate short positions. The red lines show the support levels, while the green line indicates the resistance levels. These levels can be used to enter and exit trades.

Resistance levels: 0.7410, 0.7440, and 0.7485.
Support levels: 0.7335, 0.7295, and 0.7330.

Weak data on the euro area is weighing on the euro

Weak data, including the preliminary, in the production and services sectors of the euro area put pressure on the European currency in the first half of the day. However, there was no significant sale of risky assets. This again indicates that most traders will focus on the Federal Reserve's protocols today.

The British pound collapsed against the US dollar after the release of a weak report on the UK labor market, where there was a significant surge in the number of unemployed.

In Germany, which is the flagship of the European economy, the growth rates of the manufacturing and services sectors have slowed. According to IHS Markit, the purchasing managers' index for the German services sector in February 2018 dropped to 55.3 points versus 57.3 points in January with economists expecting the February value to be at 57.0 points. The PMI for the manufacturing sector fell to 60.3 points from 61.1 points in January.

The preliminary index of supply managers for the manufacturing sector in France also fell in February, reaching 56.1 points compared to 58.4 points in January. Economists had expected a less significant decline, to a level of 58.1 points.

The preliminary index of supply managers for the services sector in France dropped to 57.9 points in February against 59.2 points in January this year. Economists had expected the index to remain unchanged at 59.2 points.

As a result business activity in general for the euro area slowed in February.

According to the report of IHS Markit, the composite index of supply managers of the eurozone in February fell to 57.5 points from 58.8 points in January. It is important to note that a value of above 50 in the index indicates an increase in activity. Economists also expected the decline but only to 58.5 points.

The technical picture in the EURUSD pair remained unchanged compared with the morning forecast. In the event of a decline in the euro after the publication of the Fed's protocols, opening long positions is best after the major support levels of 1.2240 and 1.2200 have been updated.

The British pound, as noted above, fell sharply against the US dollar after it became known that unemployment in the UK in the fourth quarter of 2017 increased.

According to the report of the National Bureau of Statistics, the number of unemployed in the UK increased by 46,000 from October to December 2017. The unemployment rate was at 4.4% while economists expected unemployment to remain unchanged at 4.3%.

ECB report disappointed traders

The European currency remained under pressure in tandem with the US dollar after the release of a weak report on the business climate in Germany. The traders were also not optimistic about the report of the European Central Bank on monetary policy.

According to the Ifo Institute, the German business climate index declined for the month of January this year. This was due to the fact that the expectations of the companies in the manufacturing sector deteriorated for the next six months.

Thus, the business sentiment index in February fell to 115.4 points from 117.6 points in January, while economists had expected the index to reach 117 points for the month of February. Despite this, the market reaction was rather restrained, as many traders were also confident that it would be difficult to surpass the positive sentiment in the German economy observed at the beginning of the year. The additional problems for exporters as reflected in the mood index, created a strong euro, as well as volatile capital markets.

The publication of the minutes from the last meeting of the European Central Bank put pressure on the European currency because many traders and investors did not find the necessary signals from the regulator in connection with the end of the bond redemption program, which is expected to be completed this fall.

Thus, the leaders of the ECB considered the inflation to still be too low as discussed in their January meeting. This suggests that it is too early to change monetary policy.

As for the technical picture of the EURUSD pair, there have been no significant changes compared to the morning forecast. Still, you can expect to form an upward correction towards the end of the week, which may start from the support levels of 1.2260 and 1.2240 in the short term. However, there is no need to exclude today's possibility of sellers updating to a larger support area of 1.2210, where large players will also announce themselves.

The British pound negatively reacted to the UK GDP report and fell in the morning against the US dollar. According to the data, the UK economy in the fourth quarter of 2017 grew weaker than expected.

The report of the National Bureau of Statistics indicates that the UK GDP in the fourth quarter grew only by 0.4% against a preliminary estimate of 0.5%. On an annualized basis, GDP growth in the fourth quarter was revised downward to 1.6% from 2.0%. For the entire 2017, the UK's GDP grew by 1.7%. The main problem for the government remains to be the Brexit, which continues to affect many sectors of the economy.

The ECB (European Central Bank) is disturbed

Eurozone
According to the macroeconomic studies published last week, the expansion period of the eurozone economy that lasted for at least two years is coming to an end.

The evaluation of the ZEW Institute that showed a slowdown in growth rates was confirmed by other studies. All three PMI Markit indices came in worse in January than in December, despite the continuous expansion, the rates are slowing down.

Business climate indices and economic expectations of IFO in February, significantly slowed down, while the expansion phase is completed. Companies are less satisfied with the current business situation, as euphoria is coming to an end, indices are falling across the entire spectrum of the economy specifically in production, wholesale, and construction.

The minutes of January meeting of the ECB was published on Thursday, which contained a number of disturbing statements. In particular, a number of ECB members expressed displeasure with the intention of the US authorities to help administrative measures to reduce the dollar, which, among other things, will be reflected in damage to the European economy and reduce import prices.

The ECB has no unity on the continuation of soft policy since strong economic performance and the growing euro prevents finding the balance.

On Wednesday, inflation data will be published in the euro area for February. While the outlook is negative which could possibly decline to 1.2%, and will help reduce the euro, update the February lows and attempt to reach the support zone at 1.2105 / 40.

United Kingdom
The British pound reacted by reducing the number of negative macroeconomic data. The GDP growth in 4 square meters is composed of 1.4% only, which is lower than expected. The weak data is because of the decline in the consumer demand amid high inflation, which is the minimum result for 5 years.

The increase of commercial investment in 2017 was 2.1% with a forecast of 2.4%, the growth was unexpected to be completely zero in the fourth quarter.

According to CBI, the growth of retail sales continues to slow down, the overall balance has decreased to + 8p against + 12p in January, which indicates a decrease in household incomes.

The pound is under pressure despite the favorable external background. Briefly, the dollar looks stronger but the positive expectations from the Brexit talks on March 22-23 will soon start to have a stronger impact. The formed wedge is threatened with a breakthrough, but its horizontal pattern does not provide an opportunity to indicate the direction. The Support can be found at 1.3855, and the resistance is at 1.4008.

Oil
Oil received a number of positive signals last week, which allowed the quotations to come back to the level of $ 70/ barrel. The first factor was the publication of the report from the US Department of Energy, which states that hydrocarbon reserves were reduced by 1.6 million barrels against a backdrop of sustained production growth. While the markets expect an increase in inventories of 1.9 million barrels.

OPEC was inspired by the success of collaboration intended to change the setup of relations into a long-term direction, for which experts from both OPEC and independent producers are working on. The structure of a new partnership will begin to operate after the expiration of the current agreement in late 2018.

Oil has the potential for further growth, which is supported by the sustained recovery of the world economy against the backdrop of controlling production volumes. If Brent quotes will be able to hold above 64.20 until next week, it is likely to establish a next high close to January's 70.82.

Data on the US economy supported the US dollar

Data on inflation in Germany did not affect the quotations of the European currency, as attention was solely focused on the speech of the chairman of the Federal Reserve.

According to the statistics agency, Germany's preliminary consumer price index rose 0.5% in February from January, while the index grew 1.4% compared to the same period in 2017. These data almost completely coincided with the expectations of experts who projected an increase of 0.5% and 1.5% respectively.

The base index, which does not take into account the volatile categories of goods, also increased by 0.5% in February and by 1.2% compared to February 2017. Given the fact that the data was in line with economists' forecasts, recent statements by ECB representatives that the stance of monetary policy will remain unchanged, along with the confirmation of such intent by the president of the central bank, Mario Draghi, it speaks of the weak prospects for the growth of the euro in the early spring of this year .

The data pointing to a drop in demand for goods with a long service life, passed for investors without a trace. According to the report of the US Department of Commerce, orders for durable goods in January this year decreased by 3.7% compared with the previous month. Economists had expected the decline to be 1.6%. As noted in the report, the main drop was mainly due to a 10% decrease in orders for transportation equipment. New orders for capital goods fell by 0.2%. The fall of this indicator is the first "call" that consumers are starting to save more.

Housing prices in the US in December of last year continued to grow. This report was presented by CoreLogic/Case-Shiller. Thus, the national housing price index in December grew by 6.3% compared to the same period last year. As experts say, the current sharp rise in prices already exceeds the growth of salaries in the US, which can affect inflation this year and slow it down a little.

Good data on consumer confidence in the US only supported the US dollar, which began its rapid growth after the speech of the new head of the Fed, Jerome Powell.

According to the Conference Board, the consumer confidence index in February this year reached 130.8 points against 124.3 points in January. Economists had expected the index in February to be 127.0 points. The report also indicates that the volatility of the stock market did not affect consumers who showed higher optimism about short-term prospects.

Inflation in the euro area declines for the third consecutive month

All the attention of traders was focused on the data on inflation in the euro area which disappointed market participants. Inflation in the euro area is declining for the third consecutive month. What can we expect from the euro?

No matter how it seems, the inflation rate that was set in the autumn of last year is gradually extinguished with the euro zone's CPI is declining for the third consecutive month. This is a very unpleasant fact for the European Central Bank which set a 2% target in the next few years.

This is also an unpleasant moment for traders who are betting on the further strengthening of the euro at the beginning of this year. The main reason for the lack of demand is the probable postponement of the deadline for the curtailment of the ECB's repurchase program, which was scheduled for the fall of this year. Also, we have to forget about all the talk about raising interest rates in early 2019.

Let's understand why it happened that way.

According to today's data, even if it is preliminary, it can be seen that in February this year, the inflation rate in the eurozone slowed for the third month in a row. So, consumer prices in the euro area for the month of February rose by only 1.2% compared to the same period in 2017, which is below the target level of the ECB, set just below 2%. As early as November 2017, inflation showed an increase of 1.5%.

A number of experts associate a slowdown in inflation with a decline in energy prices, which revived the CPI in 2016 and kept it growing throughout 2017. Also, there is a noticeable lack of a fundamental link between the acceleration of economic growth and the rise in inflation that was to occur. A similar situation is observed in the United States.

If we talk about core inflation, which does not take into account volatile prices for energy and food products, then growth was at 1%.

As I have already mentioned, a number of European Central Bank leaders, including its president Mario Draghi, made it clear that as long as there is no concrete evidence of an increase in inflation, no one will talk about a change in soft monetary policy despite good economic growth.

It is important to note that the strong growth of the US dollar began yesterday after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell made a speech in the Congress where he said that there was an improvement in the prospects for the US economy, which keeps the Federal Reserve's policy rigid. So he outlined his position on further raising interest rates.

As for the technical picture of the EURUSD pair, the breakthrough in the support level of 1.2200 could significantly collapse the trading instrument, since there is a mass of monthly stop orders for buyers of risky assets below this range. The breakthrough at the level of 1.2200 will lead to a pair of support in the areas of 1.2130 and 1.2080, which will also allow us to hook the level of 1.2050.

Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for March 5, 2018

EUR/JPY This cross pair is a weak market. It is interesting to see the market is engaged in a long, protracted bearish movement. Since the beginning of February, at least, 700 pups have been shed. In the past few weeks, short-term rallies have been invariably followed by further southwards movements.



There is currently a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. The price would continue moving downwards towards the demand zones at 130.00, 129.50 and 129.00. Nonetheless, a strong rally is in the offing, as the outlook on EUR pairs is bullish for this week.

USD/JPY approaching resistance, prepare to sell

The price is seeing strong resistance at 106.47 (Fibonacci retracement, Fibonacci extension, horizontal overlap resistance, descending resistance) and a strong reaction could occur at this price to push it down to 104.77 support (Fibonacci extension). We do have to watch out for intermediate support at 105.24 (horizontal swing low support) which needs to be broken to open a further drop.

RSI (89) sees descending resistance hold price down really well with its bearish momentum.
Sell below 106.47. Stop loss at 107.34. Take profit at 104.77.

Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for March 7, 2018

EUR/JPY
There is recently an upwards bounce in the market – in the context of a downtrend. The upwards bounce is yet to nullify the downtrend, but it would do so as soon as the price goes above the supply zone at 132.50, which would require a strong buying pressure. Right now, the EMA 11 is almost crossing the EMA 56 to the upside, and the RSI period 14 is above the level 50. Once the EMA 11 is above the EMA 56, the bias on the market would turn bullish.

There is still a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, but the recent rally has become a threat to the extant bearish outlook. Nonetheless, a strong rally is in the offing, as the outlook on EUR pairs remains bullish for this week.

Gold was trapped

The news about the resignation of the chief economic adviser to the president Gary Cohn allowed gold to mark its best daily level since Valentine's Day. If an ardent opponent of protectionism, an ex-candidate for the presidency of the Fed, withdraws from his post, a potential global trade war is unlikely to be avoided. And in it, all weapons will look good. Including - large-scale selling of US Treasury bonds by the main holders in the face of China and Japan. I believe other countries will do the same. Their desire to get rid of the power of the dollar will force them to shift to gold. Thus, trade wars are potentially capable of providing the precious metal with invaluable support.

Until March, investors' demand for ETF products was characterized by mixed dynamics. The fall in the XAU/USD and the increase in gold volatility contributed to an outflow of 5.1 tonnes in February. The biggest losses were suffered by European (-7.3 tons) and North American stock-exchange specialized funds (-5.1 tons), while Asians, on the contrary, replenished their reserves (+7.9 tons). As a result, according to the latest figure, it has increased by 10% since the beginning of the year.

In my opinion, the value of the investment demand for precious metals was influenced by the strengthening of the US dollar. The fastest growth in the weekly wage in January over the past few years has strengthened the risks of overclocking inflation and the aggressive monetary tightening of the Fed. Moreover, the new head of the Federal Reserve was optimistic about the US economy and the way of betting on federal funds. The President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, William Dudley, indicated four hikes in 2018 - a gradual normalization of monetary policy. As a result, the futures market increased the chances of such an outcome to 34%, and gold plunged into a wave of selling. Everyone remembers perfectly how uncomfortable it felt at the eve of the historic FOMC meetings in 2017.

Nevertheless, the growing likelihood of the implementation of the policy of anti-globalization, Donald Trump, significantly tempered investors' appetite for risk. If the stock indexes behaved rather restrained in response to the high-sounding statements of the US president on tariffs on the import of steel and aluminum, the resignation of Gary Cohn convinced that the matter should be taken very seriously.

In the medium term, gold can be trapped in consolidation: on the one hand, news about the trade war will provide support to the bulls on the XAU/USD; on the other hand, the return of the divergence idea in the monetary policy of the Federal Reserve and the central banks-peers can become a saving straw for the US dollar. In my opinion, in the second and third quarters, against the background of the return of the normalization theme, its strength will run out, so the price will drop to the lower border of the trading range of $1300-1360 per ounce, which makes sense to use for purchases.

Technically, if the bulls manage to return gold quotes to the limits of the upward medium-term trading channel, then the risks of implementing the target values by 113% and by 127.2% according to the Shark and AB = CD patterns will increase. Gold, daily chart

USD/JPY has reached our profit target perfectly, prepare for further rise

The price has risen perfectly to our profit target and looks poised to rise further after breaking a strong descending resistance-turned-support line. We look to buy above 106.48 (Fibonacci retracement, horizontal overlap support, breakout level) for a push up to 108.51 (Fibonacci retracement, horizontal pullback resistance). We do have to be cautious about 107.78 resistance as the price might react off that level.

RSI (89) has made a similar bullish exit signaling a change in momentum from bearish to bullish.

Buy above 106.48. Stop loss at 105.81. Take profit at 108.51

NZD/USD Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for for March 20, 2018



Daily Outlook

In July 2017, an atypical Head and Shoulders pattern was expressed on the depicted chart which indicated upcoming bearish reversal.
As expected, the price level of 0.7050 failed to offer enough bullish support for the NZD/USD pair. That's why, further bearish decline was expected towards 0.6800 (Reversal pattern bearish target).
Evident signs of bullish recovery was expressed around the depicted low (0.6780). An inverted Head and Shoulders pattern was expressed around these price levels.
The price zone of 0.7140-0.7250 (prominent Supply-Zone) failed to pause the ongoing bullish momentum. Instead, a bullish breakout above 0.7250 was expressed on January 11.
That's why, a quick bullish movement was expected towards the depicted supply zone (0.7320-0.7390) where evident bearish rejection and a valid SELL entry were expected.
On February 2, a bearish engulfing daily candlestick was expressed off the price level of 0.7390. Moreover, a double-top reversal pattern was expressed around the price zone (0.7320-0.7390).
The price zone (0.7320-0.7390) stood as a significant supply zone for the NZD/USD pair. Any bullish pullback towards this price zone should be considered for a valid SELL entry.
On the other hand, bearish breakdown of 0.7300 (neckline) is needed to confirm the depicted reversal pattern. Bearish projection target would be located around 0.7050 and 0.7000.

EUR/JPY analysis for March 21, 2018



Recently, the EUR/JPY pair has been trading sideways at the price of 130.48. According to the 30M time frame, I found that price has broken the upward channel (bearish pennant) in the background, which is a sign that buying looks risky. I also found a strong downward leg in the background, which is another sign of weakness. My advice is to watch for potential selling opportunities. Downward targets are set at the price of 130.32 and at the price of 129.60.

Resistance levels:
R1: 131.30
R2: 132.20
R3: 132.65
Support levels:
S1: 129.93
S2: 129.44
S3: 128.53

Trading recommendations for today: watch for potential selling opportunities.
