    EUROZONE CORE CPI JUMPED TO 0.9%.




    Eurozone headline CPI rose to 0.3 % from 0.0% y/y, in line with the median forecast. More interestingly core inflation (excluding food and energy) jumped to 0.9% y/y from 0.6% y/y while analyst consensus expected only a 0.1% rise to 0.7%. This is the first time in six months that the headline rate is in positive territory and the move back above zero should finally silence any deflation concerns. These were exaggerated in the first place, as the decline in headline numbers was mainly due to base effects from lower energy prices. They are now falling out of the equation and together with the weaker EUR are driving up inflation again. The ECB?s very accommodative policy stance is adding to price pressures in countries such as Germany and the quicker than anticipated rebound could see the ECB lifting its inflation projections at this week?s council meeting.

    This supported the EURUSD and it moved above the pivotal high from Friday. With today?s high being at 1.1056 EURUSD is now trading close to my target area of 1.1062 to 1.1083. Now that last week?s candle was a reversal candle and price has been makinig higher lows the likelyhood of price collapsing from this resistance is smaller. However, the pair is getting close to overbought levels when measured with 4h Stochastics and together with the resistance levels being near the risk of correction increases. The nearest 4h support level is at 1.0994 while 23.6% Fibonacci level (measured from last week?s low to today?s high) is very close at 1.1000 suggesting the region has some importance. However, the 50% Fibonacci level at 1.0937 is much more interesting in terms of potential entry level for long trades. For more intraday levels see the above 4h chart. The 50 day SMA is at 1.0968 and almost coincides with 50 period SMA in 4h chart and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level at 1.0965. If price retraces to these levels, look for price action based confirmation before considering long trades.

    CURRENCY MOVERS OF 3rd JUNE 2015.




    EURUSD, Daily

    The dollar got clobbered in New York session yesterday. The move was led by EURUSD?s fast rise to highs over 1.1190, after opening near 1.1000. Stop loss buying was a key driver of the euro?s rally, with buyers surging in on the break of 1.1010, and again at 1.1100. The move started yesterday as the core CPI figure showed the European inflation jumped to almost 1% and exceeded expectations. I had been looking for EURUSD to turn higher from the support but the strength of the move was surprising. This helped the pair hitting my target level and moving beyond it yesterday.

    Yesterday?s US reports revealed a modest underperformance for the factory goods figures for April, but a firm round of vehicle sales figures thus far for May. For the factory report, the equipment and orders data were modestly disappointing. In yesterday?s speech Fed?s Brainard underlined Fed?s approach to be data dependent and was slightly dovish. She said a range of labour market indicators will be watched closely, including wage growth and part-time employment in judging whether the economy is fully healed. This is consistent with her earlier dovish slant and appears to echo the view embraced by Yellen and others that the absolute level of the unemployment rate is not the Fed?s sole consideration in terms of the employment mandate.

    Greece will not make IMF repayment if there is no prospect of deal. According to reports on Twitter the parliamentary spokesman of Tsipras? Syriza coalition said Greece will not make the June IMF payment if there is no prospect of a deal with lenders. Both sides yesterday laid down their own proposals for an agreement, but reports suggest German PM Merkel is not optimistic of a deal before the start of the G7 meeting on Sunday and the first of Greece?s four IMF payments is due on June 5, although the IMF apparently may accept a bundling of repayments and a joint settlement later in the month.

    Last Friday (May 29th) I wrote that if there is no strong decline today the weekly candle is will create a bullish pin bar. In this context the 50 day SMA is a minor resistance and we should see price moving higher next week. This move took place after some consolidation and was then powered by stronger than expected inflation numbers from Eurozone. Now EURUSD has moved above the previous week?s high but also to a level that used to act as a support in May. The higher timeframe picture usually dominates the smaller one and with weekly being so bullish I still expect market will work its way higher over the next two weeks and head towards the upper weekly 20 period Bollinger Bands (currently at 1.1440 and 1.1570). On daily and intraday level it is usual that there is some consolidation after such a strong move higher. We?ve seen this since the pair made the high of 1.1194 yesterday evening. If the pair attracts buyers above 1.1120 (trading now at 1.1131) it is likely that the recent highs will be challenged today. The nearest resistance levels are at 1.1208 and 1.1324 while the nearest daily support level is at 1.1006.



    Currency Pairs, Grouped Performance (% Change)

    AUD has been performing well against all the major currencies after the GDP improved so much from the Q4 2014 and yesterday?s rate decision. AUDUSD has now hit a historical resistance level at 0.7800 which has slowed it down and the pair corrected lower. NZD is still weak across the board while especially AUD has moved over 50 basis points against it. We are seeing some GBP weakness across the board with exception of GBP rising slightly against NZD and EUR strength this morning has turned into a mixed performance. The USD is down and JPY?s performance is mixed. At the time of writing AUDNZD is about to challenge the May 12th high at 1.0895 while AUDJPY is nearing May 14th high at 97.30. GBPUSD closed yesterday above previous day?s high and created therefore a short terms bullish signal while EURCAD closed above 1.3754 resistance level yesterday.

    Main Macro Events Today

    Australian GDP grew at a 0.9% pace in Q1 (q/q, sa), much better than expected after the 0.5% gain in Q4. GDP slowed slightly to a 2.3% y/y pace in Q1 from a revised 2.4% clip in Q4 (was +2.5%). The near doubling of the quarterly comparable growth rate is encouraging news given the global cross currents (notably the energy price drop) in Q1, consistent with the expected positive lift to the economy from the RBA?s easing efforts this year. The firm Q1 GDP print trims the chances for further easing this year, consistent with our view that the Bank will maintain rates at the current record low 2.0% policy setting well into next year. AUD-USD jumped to 0.7800 in the wake of the data from 0.7700.

    ECB Interest Rate Decision and Monetary Policy Statement: The ECB is expected to keep policy unchanged at the June council meeting, with the announcement today, rather than on the usual Thursday slot. The focus in the press conference will be on comments on Greece and whether the ECB is willing to maintain Greek bank?s lifeline in the form of extended ELA assistance. Draghi may also be quizzed again on demands to lift the ceiling for Greek T-bills and on the possibility of raising the haircut on Greece colletaral, as well as the central bank?s stance in the case Greece defaults on one of its IMF repayments. The forecast revisions may contain an upward move to inflation projections amid signs that the combined impact of stabilising oil prices and a weaker EUR is pushing up annual rates quicker than initially thought. At the same time money supply growth has accelerated sharply. This will likely prompt another re-affirmation to markets that the ECB remains fully committed to the implementation of the QE program to prevent market expectations of policy tapering this year.

    US ADP Employment Change for May is forecasted to come in at 200 000. This would mean a healthy correction from April?s figure of 169 000.

    GBPUSD TRADING LOWER AFTER YESTERDAY?S BUY SIGNAL.




    GBPUSD, Weekly

    After breaking out of the descending regression channel GBPUSD made a brief move outside the upper Bollinger bands before falling back to current levels. The pair has found some support from the 50% Fibonacci level and has moved sideways since Monday. This is however a mid-range level that could get broken due to the fact that this market is not extended to the downside. Weekly pivot low resistance is at 1.5390 (relatively close to current price). Current levels are therefore more risky and I would be interested in long trades at lower levels, between 1.4962 and 1.5054. With support and resistances so close to each other it?s likely though that this market will be range bound for the rest of the week.



    GBPUSD, Daily

    The March 18th high created a support level that was strong enough turn GBPUSD higher in the beginning of May. Now this same pivotal candle support coincides with lower daily Bollinger Bands and the 50 day SMA. At the same time Stochastics oscillator is pointing higher after it was oversold. After last two weeks? downside movement the pair closed yesterday above previous day?s high. When this takes place at support level it is a Bullish signal and should be taken as an alert to look for smaller time frame charts in order identify right levels for buy signal monitoring. However, this has to be taken as a very short term indication as the resistance level at 1.5447 is not very far. This is likely to test the commitment among the buyers should the short term indications prove to be correct. The 50% Fibonacci level is slightly above the aforementioned resistance at 1.5498 while the nearest daily support levels are at 1.5164 and 1.5089.



    GBPUSD, 240 min

    After hitting the upper Bollinger bands and 50 period SMA, price has fallen back to the level it broke out from the 4h descending regression channel. This level is highlighted by the 50% and 61.8% Fibonacci retracements and at the time of writing price is trading just above the 61.8% Fib level. Hourly chart created a pin bar pointing to a potential reversal and there was an attempt to take the market higher. However over the last two hourly bars the upside momentum has been non-existent and price has corrected lower. The resistance level at 1.5326 (coinciding with 23.6% Fib level) is relatively close and could well be the reason for sluggish performance. Apart from Fibonacci levels the nearest support level is at 1.5210 and coincides with 4h lower Bollinger Bands.

    GBPUSD, 240 min

    Conclusion

    In the weekly context GBPUSD is still relatively close to the upper Bollinger Bands. Also, price trading at 50% Fibonacci retracement points to the fact that this level is mid-range and therefore not the ideal area for a weekly turn around to take place. Also the weekly pivot bar low at 1.5394 is relatively close to the current price and suggests further weakness could be ahead over the coming weeks. However, before that is likely to happen we might see a rally to the 1.5447 resistance as daily time frame has some supporting elements for the pair (lower Bollinger bands, 50 day SMA and historical support at 1.5164 ) and there was a daily buy signal yesterday (a close above previous day high). Support and resistance being relatively close to each other could lead to a range bound market. As per usual, look for lower time frame price action to confirm any trading ideas at support and resistance levels.

    CURRENCY MOVERS OF 4th JUNE 2015.




    EURUSD, Daily

    ADP reported that private payrolls in the US rose 201k in May versus a revised 165k April increase (was 169k). The goods producing sector added 9k, while the service sector jobs rose 192. Construction jobs were up 27k, but manufacturing fell 5k. Financial sector payrolls increased 12k. Professional and business services payrolls were up 28k. Trade and transports added 56k. Headline data are a little better than expected and support forecasts for about a 220k nonfarm payroll gain as our Survey Median projects. Payrolls face upside risk from tight claims and heightened consumer confidence in the face of lower gasoline prices, though downside risk from factory sentiment weakness. U.S. ISM non-manufacturing index fell to 55.7 in May, weaker than expected, from April?s 57.8. And it is the lowest since April 2014. Declines were broad-based, although index levels still remain relatively high. Fed?s Beige Book reiterated the economy continued to expand, with most Districts characterizing the pace as moderate to modest pace. Maybe not surprisingly given its exposure to the energy sector recession, the Dallas Fed reported slightly slower growth. Most Districts also noted an uptick in consumer spending with outlooks on the future rather positive. Manufacturing activity held steady or increased in most districts while oil and gas activity continued to decline in most areas. Employment was up slightly, as were wages. Prices were stable or ticked up, though some manufacturers reported lower input prices. There isn?t robust support in the report for policymakers to be on the verge of hiking rates.

    The ECB left interest rates unchanged at and re-affirmed its commitment to the full implementation of QE despite the fact that inflation projections for this year were revised up. Any tapering of the ECB?s bond purchase schedule still is a way off and any help from the ECB for Greece is tied to a deal with its creditors. The ECB president Mario Draghi said that with low levels of interest rates we should get used to periods of higher market volatility. Draghi also agreed that a long period of low interest rates can cause problems, but added that that shouldn?t necessarily prompt the ECB to change policy. He said the central bank is unanimous in its view to see through short term market trends and keep policy steady and added that recovery is on track, but there has been some loss of momentum. According to Draghi the recovery is developing in line with the ECB?s projections, but the slight loss of momentum is mainly due to countries outside of the Eurozone and trade developments.

    The Greek PM Tsipras rejected creditor offer after talks with Juncker and Dijsselbloem. He said ?the realistic proposals on the table are the proposals of the Greek government?, adding that ?ideas like cutting benefits for low-income pensioners, or raising the VAT rate for electricity by 10% points, can?t be a basis for discussion?. At the same time, he suggested the Commission was more favourable to Greece?s proposals than other creditors. The Commission meanwhile said in a statement that ?intense work? will continue and that ?progress was made in the understanding of each other?s positions on the basis of various proposals?. So we are not really any closer to an agreement, although Tsipras told reporters not to worry when asked about IMF repayment tomorrow.

    EURUSD strength continued yesterday after a pullback to 38.2% Fibonacci level. The 1.1120 intraday support was penetrated so momentarily that it held on closing basis even in 15 min chart. The stops below that support were taken out but then price closed above the support before shooting higher. At the time of writing the pair is trading above 1.1238 intraday support but the upside is getting limited and the risk of downside volatility has grown significantly. As the pair is trading close to a major resistance level market participants are likely to take money off the table and decrease the bids. This makes EURUSD vulnerable. Stochastics is signalling the pair is overbought and the nearest significant daily resistance is at 1.1324 while the next important daily support is as far as 1.1006.



    Currency Pairs, Grouped Performance (% Change)

    What goes up, must come down. This certainly applies to AUDUSD this morning. After surge higher and hitting a resistance yesterday AUDUSD created a shooting star candle and is now moving lower. AUD is weak against all the major currencies with AUDJPY being the weakest. At the same time JPY, following BoJ governor Kuroda?s speech, has seen some strength. USD and GBP show some strength while EUR performance is mixed. GBPAUD created a daily hammer candle yesterday and has moved above the yesterday?s high 1.9765. AUDJPY is bearish after breaking below yesterday?s low at 96.25.

    Main Macro Events Today

    Bank of Japan Governor?s Speech: GovernorKuroda said in a speech that some emerging economies worry that the Fed?s proposed rate hikes, which are seen kicking off later this year, may complicate the their policy management by triggering a massive outflow of capital from their markets back to the United States. The BOJ expanded its massive stimulus last October to prevent the oil rout, and a subsequent slowdown in inflation, from delaying a sustained halt on deflation. Inflation expectations are ?obviously? one of the most important channels in which unconventional monetary policy, such as quantitative easing, reflates growth.

    Band of England?s Interest Rate Decision is due to today but analyst consensus expects the rate will stay at 0.5%. According to the BoE minutes to the April MPC meeting showed unanimous votes to maintain the repo rate at 0.5% and the QE total at GBP 375 bln, as expected.

    US initial jobless claims are expected to be 285k (median 280k) in the week-ended May 30. Continuing claims are expected to fall to 2,200k for the week-ended May 23. Forecast risk: downward, as there is risk of rebound after recent large declines. Market risk: downward, as weaker than expected data could further delay rate hike expectations.

    GBPAUD Trading At Resistance.




    GBPAUD, Weekly

    Sterling has been trending higher against Australian dollar since August last year. In February GBPAUD hit a historical resistance at 1.9697 and it has taken the pair close to four months to move back above this resistance level. AUDGBP is now trading at Bollinger bands while Stochastics are overbought. There is a small cluster of Fibonacci extension levels just above the Bollinger bands between 2.0160 and 2.0313 and a historical resistance at 2.0991. Momentum has slowed down but the trend is still up.



    GBPAUD, Daily

    A week ago GBPAUD hit a resistance at February high at 2.0029. This caused the price to break out from a bearish wedge. Since then the pair has found support at 23.6% Fibonacci level at 1.9656 and rallied back to levels it dropped from. This looks like a classic return move that should be followed by a move lower. The nearest potential support level is in the region of 1.9408 to 1.94823 where 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, lower Bollinger bands and 50 SMA coincide. The next support area is between 61.8% and 50% Fibonacci levels while the nearest daily resistance is at 2.0057.



    GBPAUD, 240 min

    GBPAUD has moved inside the sideways range it formed last week. The pair is approaching the upper Bollinger bands but apart from Stochastics being overbought and slightly tilting to the right there are no signs of momentum slowdown yet in this timeframe as the latest bar closed near its high and the current bar is pushing into 1.5 stdv Bollinger Band. Even though price is close to very potential resistance levels I would like to see some price based evidence that the buyers have exhausted their resources before committing to the short side. The nearest 4h support is at a Fibonacci cluster above 1.9600. Nearest 4h resistance levels above 1.9907 are at 1.9998 and 2.0042.

    Conclusion

    Even though there has been some momentum slowdown the weekly trend is still higher. The historical resistance at 2.0991 is a logical target price in the weekly time frame. The daily timeframe has some weakness (price has broken out of a bearish wedge) and this suggests that the above resistance could still prove to be a problem for the bulls. If market corrects from this resistance it could however be a short term move as support is not that far and the weekly trend is pretty firmly to the upside. Look for support between 1.9600 and 1.9700 with a long term target at 2.0870 and medium term target at 2.0270. Short term and intraday traders could consider 2.0000 as a target.

    CURRENCY MOVERS OF 5th JUNE 2015.




    EURUSD, Daily

    EURUSD closed at session lows in relatively thin trade yesterday and is after some recovery currently trading at 1.1268. Greece?s request to defer IMF payments to the end of the month will apparently be approved, and will give Greece some breathing room, as a euro 300 mln payment was originally due on Friday. How Greece will make the payments at the end of the month is anyone?s guess. The FX market surely must be thinking there will be no end to the crisis, and perhaps some smart money is reducing exposure to the single currency.

    Eurozone Retail PMI surged higher yesterday. The overall retail PMI for the Eurozone passed the 50 point no change mark in May and rose to 51.4 from 49.5 in the previous month. This was driven mainly by a jump in the German reading to a whopping 55.8 from 52.6 in April. The French reading also improved, but remained below the 50 point mark, as did the Italian reading, which actually dropped slightly. The strong German number confirms that the recovery remains driven largely by consumption and domestic demand, unlike previous recoveries and the question is whether this is sustainable, or like the pre-crisis booms in Spain, Italy and elsewhere mainly fuelled by cheap money.

    The US initial jobless claims fell 8k to 276k in the week ended May 30, from a revised 284k in the prior week (was 282k). The 4-week moving average edged up to 274.75k from 272.0k (revised from 271.5k). Continuing claims dropped 30k to 2,196k in the May 23 week, from 2,226k previously (revised from 2,222k). Also, US Q1 productivity was revised down to a -3.1% pace from the -1.9% preliminary print, and versus -2.1% in Q4. The back-to-back declines are the largest since 1993.

    I wrote yesterday that EURUSD was trading close to a major resistance and that the upside was getting limited which increases the downside risk. This resulted in EURUSD failing to hold the highs after rallying from the intraday support I mentioned. It also resulted in a daily shooting star candle that confirmed the bearish view in the daily timeframe. At the time of writing the pair is approaching an intraday resistance area around 1.1285. Based on the intraday technical picture it seems that EURUSD is not likely to rise much higher but will react lower and remain weak and eventually it should move to the daily support at 1.1006. This being a Nonfarm Friday markets are prone to avoid strong directional movements before the employment number is out. Also the region of May 22 daily high provides some support EURUSD which is why I don?t expect the pair to move to 1.1006 support today. However, the daily shooting star indicates that this is likely to happen before EURUSD can move higher. A medium term regression channel bottom coincides with the 1.1006 support which suggests that the pair will retain its medium term upward tendency. Daily support and resistance levels are: 1.1208, 1.1006, 1.0887 and 1.1324, 1.1380 and 1.1467.



    Currency Pairs, Grouped Performance (% Change)

    GBP is weak across the board this morning. GBPAUD turned lower from the resistance yesterday as was expected (see my analysis from yesterday) and GBPUSD rallied yesterday almost to 1.5447 level I identified in my earlier analysis. EUR has wide strength against the other major currencies this morning with EUR moving most against GBP and JPY. EURJPY is moving outside both weekly and daily Bollinger Bands and yesterday?s shooting star raises concerns of the level of commitment by the bulls on this market. The pair is trading near yesterday?s daily highs but as there is no major weekly resistance nearby I would not be interested in selling against the highs. I suggested in my earlier analysis that EURGBP is in a process of creating a market bottom. The recent volatility and the fact that this market has found attracted buyers at major support levels indicates that my view was correct. This has brought the EURGBP near a daily resistance level and it is trading in the Bollinger Bands.

    Main Macro Events Today

    Eurozone Gross Domestic Product second release for Q1 GDP is due out today but no change in number is expected. In May Q1 data was in line with expectations, with the quarterly growth rate accelerating slightly to 0.4% q/q from 0.3% q/q, in line with our forecast and a tad below our median of 0.5%. There is no breakdown with the preliminary number, but domestic demand was likely the main driver and the national data suggests that growth is broadening and stabilising, despite the deceleration in German growth at the start of the year.

    US Nonfarm Payrolls and Unemployment rate: Nonfarm payrolls are expected to increase by 215k, with a 223k private payroll gain. Forecast risk: upward, as depressed claims readings should provide some tail wind. Market risk: downward, as substantial weakness could impact the timing of rate hikes. The unemployment rate is expected to hold steady at 5.4% from April.

    Canadian Unemployment Rate: Employment is expected to rebound 20.0k in May after the 19.7k drop in April. Forecast Risk: The dismal 19.7k drop in total jobs during April contrasted with mostly solid details, which we expect to give way to an improvement in overall employment during May. But business confidence remains subdued, suggesting a risk for a May job gain that undershoots our estimates. Market Risk: An as-expected rise in May would not argue against the expected timing and magnitude the Bank sees for the gyrations in Q1 and Q2 GDP, in turn supportive of expectations that the 0.75% policy rate is the floor.

    USDCHF has been trading good in the last month but there is a lot of selling pressure which might cause pair fall back a bit.

    GOLD EDGING CLOSER TO A SUPPORT.




    Gold, Weekly

    Ever since the US dollar started move strongly higher last year most analysts have predicted Gold would considerably lower in USD terms. This however has not taken place and the price of Gold has been moving sideways since November last year. This has been a clear sign of relative strength and suggests that there have been underlying demand factors supporting this market. However, price action in Gold since the US Dollar index (DXY) started topping has not supported the Relative Strength idea. A market that has true relative strength bounces sharply higher when factors constraining its move higher are removed. As soon DXY started to move lower the price of Gold should have rallied strongly and moved beyond the resistances at 1250 and 1300. Instead Gold rallied only 7.3% from March low to May high and is currently trading only 2.17% above the March low. The more dovish stance taken by the Fed Chief Yellen has not been to move the price of Gold higher and suggests that market participants still believe the Fed is not too far from starting tightening on its interest rate policy. Historically the price of Gold not performed brilliantly during the seasons of DXY strength. Another important reason for investors being careful with this market is that the huge rally between 2001 and 2011 that multiplied the value of yellow metal by a factor of 7.5 and sent it to extreme levels that weren?t sustainable. It is common that a market that experiences an extreme rally will correct strongly and be out of favour for a period of time. This has for instance happened with tech stocks (Nasdaq) and Hong Kong listed Chinese stocks (Hang Seng ).

    The last time there was a similar rally in the price of Gold was in the 1970s. In August 1976 Gold made a low of 101.50 and in a space of four years rallied approximately almost nine times higher. The recent rally was almost as extreme in terms of price multiples but it happened over a longer period of time. The rally started in 2001 and lasted till 2011. After peaking in 1980 the price of Gold lost almost 75% over the next 18 months. Therefore the 38% correction over the 18 months following the 2011 peak suggests that market participants can better stomach volatility that takes place over a longer time period and that this time around there has been more safe haven buying.

    Over the last three weeks Gold has corrected to 1168 support after being rejected from 1224.50 resistance level and 50 week moving average. The lower Bollinger Bands are not too far and the Stochastics Oscillator is getting oversold. The price of Gold has now reached an area where reversals have happened in the past. This suggests that the downside is getting limited. The nearest support and resistance levels are at 1168 and 1224.50.



    Gold, Daily

    Gold is now trading between a daily resistance at 1179.90 and 1168.40 after penetrating the support on intraday basis on Friday. The 23.6% Fibonacci level coincides with the 1179.90 resistance. This suggests further weakness before price can turn around and is in line with the current down trend that has been in force since the May high. I look Gold to consolidate and turn between Friday?s low of 1162.60 and March low of 1141.70.



    Conclusion

    Despite weakness of the US dollar the price of Gold has failed to rally above 1224 resistance level. The lack of conclusive rallies from over the last two months is not a sign of strength for the long term. This increases the risk of Gold violating the major support at 1131.50. Price is still in a longer term downtrend while the recent sideways move has been an attempt to build a base from which to bounce higher. The recent failure to rally above 1224.50 is a red light that longer term investors need to pay attention to. I am still expecting Gold to turn higher from or near the 1141.60. If price starts to stall after a small rally and cannot close above 1168 it is an indication to decrease long term Gold positions significantly.

    The short term picture (daily and 4h) is suggesting that price not far from levels it could stage a rally from. However, there are resistance levels above current price which should lead to a down move that would take the price of Gold to levels below Friday?s low. I am expecting it to attract buyers above 1141.70 and attempt a turn around.

    Date : 9th June 2015.

    CURRENCY MOVERS OF 9th JUNE 2015.




    EURUSD, Daily

    EURUSD moved to a five day high (on a closing basis) at 1.1345 this morning bringing last Thursday?s peak at 1.1379 back into scope, with the May-15 peak at 1.1466 just behind. A run of encouraging data, and perky May inflation data, out of the Eurozone has enabled to the euro to hold ground against the dollar, despite the rekindled Fed tightening narrative following the strong May US payrolls report. The forex market is also taking a sanguine view of Greece?s continuing standoff with its creditors at bailout negotiations. There were fresh reports that the European Commission is trying to look into ways to get Greece some alternative funding that doesn?t require a positive bailout review, but even Juncker is increasingly exasperated with Greece?s hostility towards creditors and their offers. As Greece will have to negotiate further funding beyond the remaining monies from the current bailout, the hard line stance taken by Tsipras and Co is a gamble with Greece obviously banking on the fact that foreign ministers and heads of state, as well as the G7 will eventually value Greece?s strategic position in the south-east of Europe and its importance as a Nato partner more than the fact that continuing Eurozone membership will cost taxpayers elsewhere in the Eurozone dearly, and that without solving the country?s underlying problems.

    According to ECB?s Liikanen QE could be extended, beyond September 2016 if needed. We have heard this before, but in the current climate it may go some way to dampen the rise in yields although the official commitment to bond buying it counterbalanced somewhat by the central bank?s very relaxed attitude to the rise in long term yields. Bund futures, which fell into negative territory, are slightly up again on the day, but off opening highs.

    EURUSD moved on Friday pretty well according to my script. I said in Friday?s report that the pair was approaching an intraday resistance at 1.1285 and that EURUSD is not likely to rise much higher but will react lower and remain weak. I also said that I don?t expect the pair to move to 1.1006 support today. The pair turned lower from 1.1280, remained weak and moved to the south after NFP figures came out with a big surprise. And price never moved to 1.1006 that day.

    Now we?ve seen a rally back into the same resistance area that turned the pair lower Thursday last week. The picture is less clear than on Friday as price has reacted lower from the resistance but has since found buyers at the same region that resisted moves higher on Friday. If prices keeps on making lower timeframe higher lows over the next two to three hours it is likely that buyers try to challenges the daily resistance levels again. Should this fail and price move lower from here the next intraday support would be at 1.1178 after which there are no clear support levels before intraday support before 1.1133. The pivotal daily low from Friday is at 1.1050. This range could be target for intraday shorts. However, if price create a lower daily high at current levels it is more likely that serious buyers are looking to buy EURUSD long between 1.0887 and 1.1006. Daily support and resistance levels are 1.1049, 1.1006 and 1.1324, 1.1380.



    Currency Pairs, Grouped Performance (% Change)

    USD, JPY and EUR strength has been the overall theme for this morning but now we are seeing some change with EUR performance getting a bit more mixed and GBP weakening. AUD has been weak while NZDJPY, AUDJPY and GBPJPY have been among the weakest performers in individual pairs while EURAUD and EURNZD have been strong. NZDJPY is still trading sideways at a daily support and lower Bollinger Bands (20) while AUDJPY is edging closer to pivotal daily candles and the lower end of consolidation range. EURAUD is continuing the uptrend that got boosted when Eurozone core CPI was reported well above expectations at 0.9%.

    Main Macro Events Today

    Chinese CPI and PPI were released today. CPI fell 0.2% in May from April, below the forecast median of 0.0%, rising 1.2% vs a year-ago May compared to a 1.3% median and 1.5% in April. Food CPI rose 1.6% in May vs a year-ago, while non-food CPI grew 1.0%. PPI sank 4.6% vs year-ago levels, below -4.5% median forecasts, but same as April levels. Overall, this still points to price declines, especially on the producer side, amid ongoing signs of overcapacity and economic slowing.

    Eurozone GDP: there was no variation in the actual figures from expectations. Eurozone GDP was expected the second reading of Eurozone Q1 GDP to confirm growth rates of 0.4% q/q and 1.0% y/y respectively. This left the focus on the breakdown but without a major revision, however, the numbers are too backward looking to change the overall outlook for growth and monetary policy.

    Swiss CPI for May dipped to a new cycle low of -1.2% y/y, meeting the median forecast and down from April?s -1.1%. The sharp drop into deflation in recent months is largely a consequence of the franc?s 15%-plus appreciation in January when the SNB abandoned its cap. This is troubling to Swiss policymakers, though they will be consoled by last week?s appreciation in EUR-CHF to 10-weeks above 1.0500.
