EUR/USD - 1.2093… Despite continuing its recent losing streak yesterday n hitting a 6-week trough of 1.2055 in European morning, euro caught a bid in active Asian trading today due to broad-based usd’s weakness on return of risk appetite n climbed back to 1.2097.

Although intra-day rebound suggests temporary low has been made n sideways swings are in store in European morning, as long as 1.2112 (Thursday’s low, now res) holds, prospect of one more fall is still envisaged, loss of near term downward momentum should keep price well above 1.2011 (prev. 2020 peak in September, now sup) today.
Offers are tipped at 1.2100/10 with stops above 1.2120/30, on the downside, bias are noted at 1.2070/75 n more below with stops below 1.2050.

EUR/USD - 1.2143… The single currency remained on the front foot in Tue’s session. Price extended early climb from Monday’s 6-week low at 1.2055 to 1.2098 initially in Asia yesterday, despite intra-day pullback to 1.2086 in European morning, price regained traction on renewed usd’s weakness n later rallied to 1.2144 in New York morning before retreating to 1.2116 on profit taking after incoming U.S. Treasury Yellen reiterated U.S. will not weaken usd for trade advantage.

Although intra-day brief break of 1.2144 confirms euro’s recent decline has made a temp. low, near term o/bot condition is likely to limit gain to 1.2178 n yield retreat later today.
Bids are noted at 1.2125/15 with some stops touted below 1.2100 while offers are tipped at 1.2165/75 with stops reported above 1.2180.

EUR/USD - 1.2124… Euro climbs to 1.2130 (Reuters) in Asian trading due to usd’s weakness on renewed risk sentiment after yesterday’s decline from 1.2157 (Europe) to 1.2077, suggesting further volatile swings above Monday’s 6-week bottom at 1.2055 would continue until ECB monetary policy’s announcement n then post-ECB presser.

As the ECB is widely expected to keep its rates unchanged but may well increase its stimulus measures due to continued eco. downturn in the euro zone after caused by the 2nd wave of COVID-19. Traders are also eagerly waiting for ECB President Lagarde’s comments on the strength of the euro, if she hints at concerns by the ECB Governing Council of the single currency, then one can expect broad-based euro bashing.

As euro’s strong rise from Mon’s 6-week trough at 1.2055 signals recent fall from Jan’s near 33-month peak at 1.2349 has made a temp. low, stronger retracement towards chart obj. at 1.2222 is envisaed.

As the decline from Monday’s 103.93 high suggests early corrective rise from last week’s low at 103.33 (Thursday) has possibly ended, downside bias remains and below 103.56 would bring re-test of 103.33, break would extend erratic fall from January’s 104.39 to 103.10/15 but reckon 102.95 should hold.

Intra-day resumption of recent upmove from Jan’s 9-1/2 month trough at 102.60 suggests price is en route to next daily chart obj. at 104.75 after consolidation, however, reckon ‘psychological’ handle may hold on 1st testing.

EUR/USD - 1.2084… Despite Mon’s intra-day selloff from 1.2144 (Aust.) to as low as 1.2056 in late New York trade due to broad-based usd’s strength as the usd index hit a 7-week high, euro rebounded strongly in early Asian open as further rise in U.S. stock futures boosted risk appetite and triggered usd’s selling.

As Monday’s weakness to 1.2056 suggests correction from January’s 6-week trough at 1.2055 has ended, below this good sup would yield resumption of decline from January’s near 33-month peak at 1.3549 towards 1.2011 obj. Therefore, selling euro on intra-day bounce in expectation of another fall is favoured.

Although intra-day rebound suggests recent fall from Jan’s near 33-month peak at 1.2349 has made a temp. low and range trading would continue in European morning, a firm break of 1.2555/60 needed to bring stronger retracement to 1.2085/95 before prospect of retreat.

Having said that, Wed’s upbeat U.S. ADP private payrolls n current firm U.S. yields where the benchmark 10-year Treasury (circa 1.148%) is trading near its January’s 9-month high of 1.187% suggests upside bias remains for recent upmove to resume.

As Thursday’s resumption of recent usd’s broad-based upmove suggests bullish bias remains in expectation of robust U.S. jobs report later today following Wednesday’s upside beat in U.S. ADP private payrolls, buying the pair on pullback is favoured for gain to next chart obj. at 106.10 is favoured, however, o/bot condition should cap price at 106.55.

As retreat from 105.76 suggests recent cross-inspired upmove has made a temp. top, range trading is in store today and as long as 105.76 holds, minor correction to 105.17 is envisaged but reckon previous sup area at 104.93/98 would remain intact.
Offers are tipped at 105.60/70 with stop touted above 105.80. Bids are noted at 105.35/30 with stops below there.

USD/JPY - 105.15… The greenback remains on the back foot in early Asian trading after yesterday’s decline from 105.67 (Europe) to 105.16 in New York morning due to broad-based usd’s weakness on continued risk appetite on the back of rally in U.S. stocks which hit record highs.

Although early decline from Friday’s 16-week peak of 105.76 suggests recent upmove from Jan’s 9-1/2 month bottom at 102.60 has made a temp. top there, loss of near term downward momentum is likely to limit weakness to 104.95/00 n bring rebound later today.
For now, offers are tipped at 105.35/45 with stops above 105.50 while bids are touted at 105.10/00 with stops reported below 104.80.

On the data front, only 2nd-tier U.S. economic data are due out, so traders will continue to take cue from intra-day move in US stock futures in Asia n European morning, then performance in the Dow n S&P 500 in New York.

As euro’s stronger-than-expected rise from Friday’s 2-month bottom at 1.1959 suggests recent decline from Jan’s 1.2349 peak has made a low, upside bias remains for further gain towards 1.2198 (61.8% r) later this week.

Despite a brief bounce to 1.2139 after soft U.S. CPI data, failure to penetrate said intra-day high kept price range bound in New York afternoon session.

As long as minor sup at 1.2089 holds, outlook remains mildly bullish for further headway to daily chart obj. at 1.2090 but reckon pivotal res at 1.2222 would hold this week n risk has increased for a much-needed retracement of the said rise. Order board is pretty thin with bids noted at 1.2115/05 with stops below 1.208 while offers are noted at 1.2150/55 with stops touted above there.
