    EUR/USD struggled near 1.0580 and corrected lower. USD/JPY is rising and might continue to gain pace towards the 138.00 resistance

    Important Takeaways for EUR/USD and USD/JPY

    This past week, the Euro started a decent recovery wave above the 1.0500 level against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair cleared the 1.0520 and 1.0550 resistance levels.

    However, the pair faced sellers near the 1.0580 level. A high was formed near 1.0582 on FXOpen and EUR/USD started a downside correction. There was a move below the 1.0520 support and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

    The pair even spiked below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.0444 swing low to 1.0582 high. However, the bulls are now protecting the 1.0500 support zone.

    There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.0505 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD. The trend line is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.0444 swing low to 1.0582 high.

    An immediate resistance on the upside is near the 1.0530 level the 50 hourly simple moving average. The next major resistance is near the 1.0550 level. The main resistance is near the 1.0580 level. An upside break above 1.0580 could set the pace for a steady increase.

    If not, the pair might drop and test the 1.0480 support. The next major support is near 1.0450, below which the pair could drop to 1.0400 in the near term.

    The British Pound's weakness harks back to the dark days of the late 1960s



    For a number of weeks, the British Pound has been down in the dumps, performing very weakly against its de facto peers, the Euro and the US Dollar.

    As this week's trading sessions begin across Europe, the Pound sits at a stagnant 1.16 against the Euro, and an equally mediocre 1.22 against the US Dollar.

    The Pound, which remains the world's strongest fiat currency, has been under the microscope of analysts and investors for a few weeks now, and its dull performance is quite interesting considering that the UK did not suffer the same level of government-enforced lockdowns as mainland Europe or parts of the United States did during 2020 and 2021, and its economic burden is devoid of fueling the enormous debt which some member states of the European Union are saddled with, as the United Kingdom is no longer a member of the European Union.

    Inflation is playing a major part in the devaluation of currency across the Western world, so therefore by that logic, all majors apart from the Japanese Yen should be in the same position, however the reality is the absolute opposite. The Yen is at a historic low, and the Euro and US Dollar are doing better than the British Pound.

    Some pundits have indicated this morning that political woes as well as economic hurdles in the United Kingdom have created an 'investor flight' toward the US Dollar, however there are similar political woes in Europe and the United States, and the populations of both continents each side of the Atlantic face similar cost of living crises as the one in the United Kingdom.

    The 'nothing to see here' approach by the British authorities has draw comparisons with the devaluation of the British Pound in 1967, a crisis for the vast majority of citizens, which was dismissed casually by the prime minister of the time Harold Wilson, who claimed quite outrageously that the pound in people's pockets was unaffected.

    One possible explanation for the continued depression of the Pound's value could be the current situation in which the workers unions are once again rearing their heads.

    Britain's rail networks were blighted by strike action last week, and at a time during which there has been political uncertainty, militant strike action on a national scale harks back to the industrial disasters of the early 1970s, not long after Prime Minister Wilson dismissed the late 1960s devaluation of the pound.

    This year alone, the British Pound has decreased in value by 9%, which is a considerable amount, especially when bearing in mind that the Dollar has also been hit by inflation at a 40 year high in the United States, and the US Government's stance against Russia which has led to the US Dollar losing its status as a de facto settlement currency for raw material commodities such as oil and gas which must now be settled in rubles when being purchased from Russian suppliers.

    The volatility of late has even spurred an off-the-cuff remark by Bank of America which has likened the British Pound's behavior to that of an emerging market currency!

    Of course, that is hyperbole, and the Euro zone is also in a precarious financial position, with a brewing Italian bond crisis and a central bank even more laggardly than our own to raise rates.

    The finger-pointing in Britain is now in full swing, however, and the Bank of England's governor is about to be hauled over the coals by the authorities for apparently not doing enough to predict the levels of inflation that are now being experienced.

    Euro makes a steady 0.3% gain overnight as Lagarde prepares inflation speech



    The Euro is making steady progress at the moment, and has risen by 0.3% during the course of the night, starting the day just above its 50-day moving average.

    That represents a strong position for the Euro, which had a value of $1.0578 against the strong US Dollar this morning.

    Inflation has been a subject which has dominated not only the news channels recently, but also the everyday lives of a large proportion of the public across both the American and European continents, and this week the matter of rising inflation is on the agenda for announcements from the governments within the important economic centers within the European Union.

    On Wednesday this week, Germany will announce its inflation figures, followed by France on Thursday and the Euro Zone as a whole on Friday.

    Despite these imminent announcements, the Euro has held its ground very well. The US Dollar has been notably a strong currency against Western majors recently, itself gaining slightly over the Australian Dollar and the Japanese Yen during today's Asian market trading session which takes place in the during the night and early hours of the morning European time. The US Dollar rose to $0.693 against the Australian Dollar and 135.37 Yen would buy 1 US Dollar by the end of the Asian session today, which is close to the seven-year high of 144.24 Yen to the US Dollar which arose las week.

    Despite the Dollar's rising value against these two non-Western majors, the Euro still made its ground against the Dollar today, which is remarkable considering the inflation-related announcements which are imminent across Europe.

    Of course, the United States is battling with inflation which is at its highest in 40 years, just as is the case across most of the Western world, therefore the announcements in Europe align to some extent with the situation across the Atlantic in the United States.

    Today, Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank is due to speak at the European Central Bank forum in Sintra, Portugal at 8.00am GMT, with the anticipated main subject to be inflation.

    Interestingly, the Swiss Franc has risen to parity with the Euro this week, largely driven by an interest rate increase by the Swiss National Bank which took place earlier this month, however elsewhere in Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States, the inflation situation is having a profound effect on the buying habits of the public and lifestyle changes have been taking place meaning less spending, and therefore a shrinking economy.

    The cost of living has rocketed, meaning that per-capita earnings are less than they were last year by a considerable margin, causing concerns by millions of people as well as analysts and economists over the medium term strength of the Western economy as a whole, therefore some degree of volatility between major currencies, especially the Euro, US Dollar and British Pound has taken place which has over recent years been relatively rare.

    Interest rate rises are also making their presence felt as mortgage and loan payments have been increasing across these markets, signaling a potential recession.

    There is no magic wand to wave, however listening to central bank announcements, despite their current similarity in tone and content, is a poignant measure of the current state of each sovereign currency.

    The next major resistance is near the 1.0560 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.0615 swing high to 1.0503 low.

    On the downside, an immediate support is near the 1.0520 level. The next major support is near the 1.0500 level. A downside break below the 1.0500 support could start another decline.

    Turkish Lira has week of volatility as government takes drastic action


    The Turkish Lira has been a currency that has held the international limelight for a few months now, largely due to the massive volatility that it has been experiencing as Turkey's national economy struggles with outlandish levels of inflation.

    Over the last few months, Turkey has been battling inflation levels of approximately 70%, and the its national currency, the Lira, has been the subject of detailed analysis in that it has faced a severe crisis.

    The Turkish Lira, although not a major currency, is widely traded against majors such as the Euro, US Dollar, Swiss Franc, Japanese Yen and British Pound and as a result of this status, it has been an important currency to monitor recently as the economic circumstances which the Turkish economy has faced impinge on its value.

    This week, the Turkish government took drastic action by enforcing a ban on companies based in Turkey which have significant reserves of foreign currency from taking loans.

    This resulted in an increase in the value of the Turkish Lira, however yesterday the Turkish Lira actually whipsawed against the US Dollar as the most interesting stage in a four-day rally in value by the Turkish currency.

    Whipsawing is a term used by traders which describes a pattern in a volatile market in which a sharp price movement is suddenly followed by a sharp reversal.

    In the case of the Turkish Lira, the currency rallied against the US Dollar on Friday last week, at one point surging by 5% against the US Dollar, which is the highest it has gained this year.

    Overall on Friday, the Turkish Lira had traded up 2.5%, which is the biggest gain of any currency in the world against the US Dollar during Friday's trading session.

    As this week has progressed, the upward trend continued for the Lira until yesterday, when it whipsawed.

    By Monday morning this week, the Turkish Lira had gained an impressive 8% against the US Dollar, trading at 16.01 compared to Thursday's close of 17.35.

    However, on Monday afternoon, late into the European trading session, the Turkish Lira whipsawed within the 16 to 17 Lira per US Dollar range.

    These volatile movements reflected the varied opinions of investors regarding the new ban on loans to companies which hold reserves of non-Turkish currency.

    The policy, which affects around 10,000 businesses in Turkey, means that if those companies wish to obtain commercial loans, they would have to sell a sufficient amount of their non-Turkish currency reserves on the Forex market and then buy Lira instead. The idea of this is to attempt to bolster the value of the embattled Turkish Lira which has lost half of its value in the past 12 months.

    The new rule stipulates that all companies which hold the equivalent of 15 million Turkish Lira in non-Turkish currency, cannot borrow lira if their FX funds exceed 10% of their assets or yearly sales. 15 million Turkish Lira is approximately $910,000.

    Smaller companies which cannot take loans in non-Turkish currency are exempt from this ruling as long as their FX position is net, and they are allowed to borrow in Lira.

    The government's stringent action is indicative of the crisis which the Lira faces, as the inflation level reached 73% recently, removing the purchasing power of the vast majority of the nation's citizens and businesses.

    The Lira is clearly now a volatile currency against majors and therefore one to watch.
