Dukascopy Technical Analysis

EUR/JPY: trend-line confirmation eyed
"The euro has been under pressure because of the political headlines. But I think that the euro has been pretty resilient especially versus the dollar. With all the political headlines, I would’ve expected it even lower."
- Georgette Boele, ABN Amro Bank NV (based on Bloomberg)

The EUR/JPY pair surprised with its performance yesterday, having closed trade with barely any losses registered. This suggests that the Euro received sufficient impetus for a recovery when it touched the trend-line last Friday.

Swiss KOF index climbs 5.2 points in February
Data released on Tuesday revealed that the Swiss KOF leading indicator surged markedly over the month of February, pointing to better-than-expected growth in the country’s economy. The KOF Swiss Economic Institute reported the KOF index added 5.2 points in February, which is strongly above its long-term average, jumping to 107.2 from an upwardly revised reading of 102.0 registered in the preceding month. The upmove was mainly driven by the positive trend established in the manufacturing and hospitality sectors coupled with favourable signals from the financial, exporting and construction industries.

Expert Commentary
"For the end of the first quarter this year, I see the Euro rallying to 1.15 versus the US Dollar, while the EUR/JPY currency pair I expect to trade at 115."
- Christian Apelt, FX strategist at Helaba, on Euro zone and EUR
Overall, we anticipate the US Dollar to weaken because of the President Donald Trump’s recent rheto-ric. We have already seen some uncertainty over the last couple of days and I would expect the Greenback to be quite over-worried, responding to political developments months after the election. >>
