    Intra-Day Market Moving New and Views

    04 Jul 2014

    EUR/USD - ... Despite yesterday's brief bounce to 1.3664 at European open, renewed selling interest there knocked price lower n euro nose-dived to an intra-day low at 1.3596 after dovish comments from ECB's president Draghi who said that take-up of the TLTRO could reach EUR 1 trillion. Selling interest is now tipped at 1.3620-25 n more at 1.3635-40. On the downside, mixture of bids n stops is located at 1.3600 but some bids are noted at 1.3580-75.

    ECB's Draghi announced that starting January 2015, the ECB will reduce the frequency of its policy meetings to every 6 weeks, allowing for the publication of minutes a few weeks later. He added that studies on ABS have intensified but stressed the need for unanimity among council members about the possible use of non-standard measures.

    On the data front, Germany will release its industrial orders at 06:00GMT.

    Yesterday, ECB's Executive Board member Benoit Coeure said, quote: 'only way to move from current low interest rates is to reinvigorate euro zone's productive potential; govts should not view period of low rates as an invitation to abandon fiscal prudence; states should stick to rules of new EU fiscal framework, not stretch these to point where framework is discredited; confident euro zone banks with strong business models will make full use of TLTROS.'

    Quoting the statement from ECB's policymaker Jens Weidmann :'ultra-loose monetary policy leads, over time, to financial stability risks; concerned that low rates are easing pressure on govts to reform, consolidate budgets; important to stress that ECB will not delay a normalisation of monetary policy out of regard for state finances; for the euro zone, monetary policy has made its contribution to deliver price stability; will take a while for June policy measures to take full effect; I regard it as wrong to speculate about further measures immediately after June decisions.'

    Data to be released on Friday:

    Germany industrial orders, U.K. Halifax house prices. U.S. independence day holiday.

    Intra-Day Market Moving New and Views

    08 Jul 2014

    EUR/USD - .. Euro moves narrowly but with a firm bias in subdued Asian trading after Mon's rebound from European near 2-week low of 1.3676.
    Short-term specs sold the single currency at European open on stop hunting and although price briefly penetrated Friday's 1.3586 low, good buying interest emerged at 1.3676 and euro staged a rebound to 1.3602, such move prompted broad-based short-covering in euro vs USD & GBP, the pair later rose marginally to session high of 1.3609 in NY afternoon, the 1.3610 at Asian open.

    Although consolidation with mild upside bias is seen, reports of fairly good offers at 1.3615/25 should cap intra-day gain, so day traders can sell the euro on marginal rise for re-test of 1.3676 later in the day.
    Initial bids are noted at 1.3600 and more at 1.3590-85 with stops below 1.3675, however, traders reported a layer of bids at 1.3665-50, so downside on the euro also looks pretty limited today.
    Germany & France will release trade data at 06:00GMT & 06:45GMT but these are not expected to move the euro much.

    White House said Obama, Hollande decide U.S., Europe should take further coordinated measures to impose costs on Russia if it does not take immediate steps towards de-escalation in Ukraine.

    Data to be released on Tuesday:

    Japan current account, economic watchers, Australia NAB business confidence, business conditions, Germany imports, exports, trade balance, France trade balance, Swiss CPI, retail sales, UK industrial output, manufacturing output and U.S. redbook retail sales.

    Intra-Day Market Moving News and Views

    25 Jul 2014

    EUR/USD - .. Ifo economist Wohlrabe said, quote:
    'scale of drop in climate index surprising but wouldn't call it a change in trend;
    geopolitical tensions come at same time as slowdown fm very good Q1 for German business;
    German domestic business climate still strg but export expectations at lowest lvl in more than a year;
    influence of Ukraine n mid-east conflicts cannot be measured in concrete terms;
    expects German economic growth for 2014 to be as forecast at 2.0% or perhaps slightly higher.'

    The single currency fell to intra-day low of 1.3443 after German Ifo Jul business sentiment index unexpectedly dropped to 108.0, forecast was 109.4.

    However, talk of bids at 1.3440-30 n more below has contained weakness, so minor range trading abv y'day's fresh 8-month trough at 1.3438 is likely. Offers have been lowered to 1.3455/65 n more are tipped at 1.3475/85, suggesting selling euro on recovery is the way to go.

    Earlier on, Euro maintains a steady posture at European opening n has shown muted reaction to the release of slightly better-than-expected German GfK consumer confidence.

    The German consumer morale index climbed to its highest level in over 7 years. Aug reading came in at 9.0 vs forecast of 8.9 (prev. reading was 8.9).

    As mentioned in previous update, market is awaiting release of the important German Ifo business climate index later at 08:00GMT where street forecast for Jul reading is 109.4 vs prev. reading of 109.7. If actual comes in lower than expectation, expect another round of euro bashing but if it is sharply higher, then be prepared for more broad-based short-covering in euro vs usd, yen & gbp.
