The past week was indeed eventful in the forex market as major events unfolded leading to some real volatility across the board. Let's take a look at our EURUSD Weekly Technical Analysis ahead new trading week
18 March, AtoZForex – An outspread policy of easing has submarined the EURUSD from 1.60 to 1.06 and even if there is no room for a full retracement, some stability or a hawkish turn from the ECB could easily mean 1.15 or 1.20 in sight.
This past week, ECB member Nowotny said a rate hike could be needed as soon as possible. It was noticed from this month's monetary policy announcement that Eurozone policymakers have grown less dovish but few expected the central bank to be considering tightening especially in light of the region's political uncertainties. According to the latest polls on Friday, despite the far right's failure in the Netherlands, Le Pen is closing the gap with Macron.
Fundamentally, the Eurozone economy is witnessing all round improvement. This is expected to be confirmed by next week's PMI reports. we are still looking for EURUSD to test at least 1.08xx as long as political headlines don't choke the rally.
That's that for the fundamentals within the week, let's see what the technical postures are, going into the new week.
