EURUSD tests NY session lows at 1.2523


View Comments





The EURUSD is trading at post FOMC meeting minutes lows. It  has
also tested the NY session low at the 1.2523 level (see 5 minute chart
below).  It was also a low from the London morning session.  You cannot
help but notice that level if you look at a short term intraday chart.

Below those levels is the 100 hour MA(blue line in the chart below)
which currently comes in at the  1.24973 level. The 1.2497-08 is a
support area for the pair from  prior lows and highs (see blue circles
in the chart below).  Like the 1.2523 lows, aA test of this area should
also give cause for pause.


The EURUSD is down after the initial spike but has the 1.2497-08 as the  next key support target.

The volatility remains elevated for the pair.  Is the 1.2577
resistance area from above, in the rear-view mirror now?  A move back
below the 1.22523 and then the 1.2497 levels will help to confirm that
story> What we can say about the 1.2577 level is it was broken. It
was tested hard on the correction. The price is now back down. There if
more work to be done by sellers on the topside but buyers are less in
control.


Tomorrow, is the hurdle from the CPI and the Initial Claims at 8;30
AM ET. Can the CPI keep the dollar higher or will a benign number be
priced in.  The Philly Fed Index and Existing Home sales are due at 10
AM ET. Last month this Philly index came down to 20.7 from 22.5 in
September and 28.0 in August.  The Existing Home sales surprised to the
upside (highest level going back to September 2013).  Initial claims did
move higher last week but the number remains below the 300K level. The
expectations is for a 284K.
