Italian Politics & USD Bid: 21 EURUSD Impact Analysis

Italy remains in the spotlight amid concerns about the policy proposals of the anti-establishment, Eurosceptic coalition government. ECB’s Nowotny said earlier, as Italian 10-year yields spiked a further over 5 bp to near two-year highs, that he hopes that the actual policies will be “much wiser” than the proposals.

The outlook appears bearish given the rising U.S. yield advantage relative to Bunds, coupled with the Italian situation. EURUSD has trend resistance at 1.1780 and the daily Pivot point before that it must breach the mid line Bollinger band at 1.1757. Support at 1.1740 has proved vulnerable today but further down 1.1720-10 support has been more substantial.
