Monday, June 8th

The U.S dollar rose higher against the basket of major currency pairs on Friday after release of strong data on Non-Farm Payrolls that bolstered the expectations that the Fed will start raising the interest rates later this year. The U.S. dollar index rose 0.96% to 96.50.

USD/JPY hit the level of 125.85, which was the highest since June 2002. The pair was slightly down this morning, after Japanese data on GDP, which was higher than expected.

The Yen is likely to find support at 125.29 (Today’s low) and then at 125.00. The resistance levels are located at 125.68 and 125.86.

EUR/USD erased its gains falling to 1.1048 on Friday. The U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls reading showed a considerable increase, beating the expectations by 55.000. The single currency is trading in the narrow corridor between 1.1136 and 1.1125. The resistance is located at 1.1225. The support is likely to be found at 1.0911.

USD/CAD fell to 1.2426 over the U.S. news on Friday. The pair is currently traded at 1.2433 with investors looking for today’s reports on Canadian Housing Starts and Building Permits.

Later in the week, the market will be watching the euro zone’s revised data on first quarter economic growth, Switzerland’s consumer inflation, the British Trade Balance and manufacturing production.

The euro fell during the Asian session as talks between Greece and IMF reportedly got into another deadlock situation. The IMF officials ended the Thursday meeting untimely despite the lack of progress. The Greek bailout team commented that the two sides remained far apart from the agreement on a number of important issues. Greek bailout agreement with EU and IMF is expiring at the end of this month and if the deal is not reached by then, the country is going to face default. Traded at 1.1218, EUR/USD will see support at 1.1144 and resistance at 1.1296. The German reports on wholesale price changes were positive and Spanish CPI indices came in exactly as expected. Ahead in the day, investors will be watching the European industrial production reports.


NZD/USD
continued its decline after yesterday’s cut of interest rate. This morning, the New Zealand data came in almost flat with PMI at 51.5 as opposed to 51.8 last month and RBNZ Offshore Holdings at 63.00% lower 0.90% than the previous month. The pair is trading at 0.6993.


The U.S. dollar index
which measures the dollar’s strength against the basket of major currencies was up 0.72% at 95.12. On Thursday, the reports showed a slightly bigger than expected increase of the U.S. retail prices, but the number of jobless claims also grew higher than it was predicted.


The yen
was on the rise earlier today currently traded at 123.65. The Japanese industrial production rose 1.2% beating the expectations of 1.0%. USD/JPY is likely to find support at 122.72 and resistance at 124.88.

EUR/USD was down to 1.1212 this morning, opening the session with a small gap. Greece remains ready for negotiations with its international creditors; however the bail-out team blamed European lenders for insisting on pension cuts and raising value-added-tax. The pair’s support level is located at 1.1152 and resistance at 1.1354. Ahead in the day, the markets will be watching the report on euro zone’s trade balance, Italian CPI and the speech of ECB President M.Draghi.


The U.S. dollar index
, which measures the dollar’s strength against the basket of major currencies, was up 0.17% at 95.40. However, the dollar ended lower last week, as FED did not give any indications on interest rate hike timing. Friday’s data showed that consumer confidence improved in the U.S. over earlier improvement in the labor market, which pushed the expectations for wage gains.


NZD/USD
and AUD/USD are moving down quoted 0.6980 and 0.7726 respectively.


USD/JPY
was on a slight correction going up over dollar’s strengthening. The pair is trading at 123.47 with support at 122.91 and resistance at 124.23.

spiked up to 0.6993 after strong current account data, but eventually continued its fall to the current level of 0.6963.

Thursday, June 18th

EUR/USD surged yesterday evening amid dovish Fed comments on rate hike timing. Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen said that U.S. Central Bank will take data-driven approach when deciding on when to raise the rate. It was said that the Fed would like to see improvements in the U.S. economy and labor market before it begins policy normalization. Meanwhile, Athens remains in focus. On Wednesday, the Greece Central Bank warned that the country might face an “uncontrollable crisis” if the agreement with creditors is not reached. EUR/USD closed above 1.13 for the first time in the last six sessions. Currently, the pair is traded at 1.13855.


USD/JPY
fell despite data showing lower Japanese wage levels in April. The strengthening of the yen was stimulated by the view that the Fed will be slow to raise rates. The pair is currently at 123.01 with resistance level at 124.57 and support at 122.70.


NZD/USD
fell sharply after the release of weaker GDP growth in the first quarter. Economists expected a 0.6% growth rate, but the report came in at 0.2%. Falling to 0.6873, it was the pair’s lowest since July 6, 2010.


USD/CHF
was down to 0.9212 after yesterday’s Fed announcement. The Swiss Franc has been a major beneficiary of the Greek crisis, leading to a drop in EUR/CHF and USD/CHF pairs.


The U.S. dollar index
was down 0.12% at 94.37.


Later in the day,
the markets are viewing the British retail sales report, the U.S. core CPI and Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing index.

Swiss franc continued its strengthening against the U.S. dollar reaching its one-month highs on Thursday after SNB left its deposit rate at record low at -0.75%. Swiss National Bank said that negative rate should help to weaken the currency over time. The pair is traded at 0.9235 with support level at 0.9113 and resistance at 0.9255.


GBP/USD
touched its seven-month highs against weaker dollar on Thursday. Data showed that U.K. retail sales grew in May while Federal Reserve indicated that it might not raise the interest rates in September, but will rather wait for more robust economic growth. Yesterday’s mixed data from U.S. sent the pond even higher.  The cable is currently traded at 1.5862 down $0.0072 from yesterday’s peak.


NZD/USD
and AUD/USD were down in Asia despite weaker dollar. Kiwi is likely to remain under pressure without any fresh reports coming out from New Zealand today.


Yen
was slightly weaker today traded at 123.12 after Bank of Japan kept the interest rate unchanged as expected at 0.10%.  The pair’s resistance level is located at 123.60 and support at 121.54.


EUR/USD
rose mildly on Thursday over dollar’s weakening, but erased gains this morning currently traded at 1.1309. Yesterday, the meeting of euro zone finance ministers in Luxembourg ended without a deal between Greece and its creditors. The European Central Bank Executive Board member Benoit Coeure said that he is unsure if banks in Greece will remain open on Monday if a deal is not reached. The likelihood of Greek default is very high.


The U.S. dollar index
plunged to a monthly-low of 93.71 before rising to the current reading of 94.57.


Ahead in the day,
investors are viewing Canadian Core CPI and series of reports from the United States.

EUR/USD was gaining in Asia this morning as investors are waiting to what appears to be the crucial point in Greek negotiations. European leaders are meeting in Brussels to discuss the bailout agreement, which is due to expire on June 30. The pair is trading at 1.1396 with support level at 1.1267 and resistance at 1.1434.


The U.S. dollar index,
which measures the dollar’s strength against the basket of major currencies, ended the week down 0.4% at 94.27.


NZD/USD
was showing correction signs this morning rising to 0.6920 after previous week’s lows of 0.6877. Kiwi tries to fight back the lost ground; however data from New Zealand needs to provide more evidence on the nation’s stable economy growth, since the reports were quite mixed lately.


AUD/USD
is headed up currently trading at 0.7787. The aussie was supported by weaker dollar, as sceptic expectations of a rate hike prevailed. The support level is located at 0.7676 and resistance at 0.7794.


Ahead in the day,
economists are viewing the U.S. Existing Home Sales.

Tuesday, June 23rd  

EUR/USD was down on Monday despite the clearest indication of Greece going forward in negotiations with its creditors. In Brussels, Greek officials presented a comprehensive proposal, which reportedly included plans to introduce new corporate tax, new wealth tax, raising the nation’s retirement age to 67 and imposing some new increases to VAT. The U.S. Existing Home Sales data also contributed to euro’s decline as report showed better than expected reading of 5.35M as opposed to 5.26M predicted. The German Manufacturing PMI data came out exceeding expectations, which did not notably influence the single currency’s rate. The pair is traded at 1.1248 with support level located near 1.1220 and closest resistance at 1.1375. Ahead in the day, markets are viewing U.S. Core Durable Goods Orders and New Home Sales in the United States.


NZD/USD
slumped to its fresh 5year lows ignoring better than expected Chinese Manufacturing PMI data. The weak Kiwi remains under pressure after series of downbeat economic data from New Zealand indicating a possibility of further interest rate cuts. The pair is traded at 0.6858 rising from today’s lows of 0.6835.


AUD/USD
was down this morning leaving the Chinese Manufacturing PMI data unconsidered. Worse than expected reading of House Price Index in Australia sent the aussie lower to 0.7694. Subsequently the pair erased the losses reaching the 0.7743 level and fell again to 0.7722.


GBP/USD
is heading down for the second consecutive falling below 1.5800 level. In absence of any significant news from the U.K. the market will shift the attention towards the U.S. calendar. The pair is traded at 1.5802 with immediate support at 1.5761 and resistance at 1.5668.
