 On Monday, the fears of the renewed spread of virus grew after the U.S. reported more than 2 million coronavirus cases as of June 12, and the infection cases were reported from the most populous states of America. The high level of new infections was reported from California, Texas, and Florida, which raised the possibility of a new wave of COVID-19 and prompted risk aversion.

Risk appetite increased the demand for the U.S. dollar across the board as the bar for renewed restrictions of lockdown raised. Federal Reserve has already announced that the road to economic recovery will be longer than expected, which indicated more need for stimulus packaged from governments.

On the other hand, the greenback was stronger on Friday, and the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) jumped to 97.15 level.

Furthermore, the Commissioner President of the European Union, Von der Leyen, will meet the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, on Monday to revive the talks related to the post-Brexit deal. So far, there hasn’t been much progress on a free-trade agreement between U.K. & Brussels while there is not much time left to extend the deadline for a deal till end-2020.

However, on Thursday and Friday this week, the E.U. leaders will meet to discuss the proposed recovery fund to overcome the economic damage caused by the pandemic. All members except the Frugal Four I,e Netherland, Austria, Demark, and Sweden, support the recovery fund. All member’s acceptance is needed for the recovery fund to succeed, and any delay will be a major setback for the shared currency Euro.

EUR/USD– Trading Tip

The EUR/USD pair is trading at 1.1260 level, having entered into the oversold zone. Today, we can expect bullish correction until 1.1270 and 1.1290 levels, which marks 50% and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement levels. Below these levels, the EUR/USD pair can show selling bias again as the 50 EMA can pressure the pair for selling. On the lower side, support continues to hold around 1.12250 and 1.1208.


GBP/USD – Daily Analysis

The GBP/USD pair was closed at 1.25414 after placing a high of 1.26533 and a low of 1.24735. Overall the movement of GBP/USD pair remained bearish throughout the day. The GBP/USD pair was dropped to its lowest of 8 days on Friday due to mediocre than expected economic data release and U.S. dollar strength. At the ending day of the week, British Pound dropped against the U.S. dollar after the British GDP contracted by a quarter year-on-year in April.

At 11:00 GMT, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in April from the United Kingdom was dropped to -20.4% from the expected -18.6% and weighed on GBP. The Manufacturing Production for April also dropped to negative 24.3% from the expectations of -15.0% and weighed on British Pound.

At 11:03 GMT, the Construction Output in April was recorder to decline by 40.1% against the forecasted 240% decline and weighed on British Pound. However, the Index of Services was declined by 9.9% against the expected decline of 10.6%.

Leading Index for April was dropped by 2.9% from the previous month’s 1.2%.

The poor-than-expected macroeconomic data from Great Britain exerted negative pressure on British Pound and dragged the pair to its one week’s lowest level below 1.2500 level.

Apart from negative macroeconomic data, the uncertainty surrounding Brexit also weighed on British Pound on Friday ahead of the PM Boris Johnson’s video conference with European Council President Charles Michel, European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen and European Parliament President David Sassoli on Monday.

The lack of progress in Brexit talks with Brussels and the calls to review the policy options, including negative interest rates by BoE has also been lagging in the recovery of Pound. Ahead of the BoE meeting, it has already been confirmed on Friday that U.K.’s economy has contracted by 20.4% in April. This means that BoE will likely announce further easing in its policy next week. The current purchase plan of BOE comprises 200 Billion GBP, which is likely to extend further in the next meeting.

Furthermore, the latest round of talks with Brussels failed to deliver any significant progress in the post-Brexit trade deal, which has raised the odds for a no-deal exit from the E.U. As the transition period will expire on January 1, 2021.

On the other hand, from the American Side, the Prelim Consumer Sentiment from the University of Michigan increased in June to 78.9 from the expected 75.0 and supported the U.S. dollar. The U.S. dollar was already strong in the market, and after this release, it exerted even more pressure on the GBP/USD pair.

The brighter market sentiment due to come back of risk appetite in the market after the possibility of renewed lockdowns increased due to increased fears over the second wave of coronavirus outbreak.

The fears of the renewed spread of virus grew after the U.S. reported more than 2 million coronavirus cases as of June 12, and the infection cases were reported from the most populous states of America. The high level of new infections was reported from California, Texas, and Florida, which raised the possibility of a new wave of COVID-19 and prompted risk aversion.

Risk appetite increased the demand for the U.S. dollar across the board as the bar for renewed restrictions of lockdown raised. Federal Reserve has already announced that the road to economic recovery will be longer than expected, which indicated more need for stimulus packaged from governments.

However, the U.S. Dollar Index was up to 97 levels on Friday, and the strength of the U.S. dollar pushed the USD/JPY pair above 107.5 level.

Another factor aiding in the U.S. dollar’s strength was better than expected macroeconomic data from the USA. At 19:00 GMT, the Prelim Consumer Sentiment from the University of Michigan (UoM) surged to 78.9 in June from the expected 75.0 and supported the U.S. dollar.

USD/JPY – Trading Tips

The USD/JPY pair fell sharply after violating the upward channel, which supported the pair around 107.500. For now, this level is working as resistance for USD/JPY. The 50 periods EMA is also extending strong resistance at 107.650 area while immediate support stays around 106.600.

Let’s wait for the market to test the 107.650 level before entering a sell in the USD/JPY today. 

Good luck!
