Euro Raises Supported by Ending Bonds Debate

In the next week, the ECB could start to debate the end of their bonds buying said Peter Praet, the ECB chief economist.

The first corrective structure it developed was brief, this move makes us suspect that the rally continuation could lead to the 132 to 133 area. In the short-term, the cross could see the 130.270 level for bringing steps to a consolidation structure before it continues the bullish cycle. Invalidation level is 126.330.

EURNZD is making a bullish connector inside a bearish major degree structure. Our vision is that the price could visit the area between the 38.2% to 50% of Fibonacci Retracement before it continues its downtrend. In the short-term, the price made a breakout of the 1.6713 level; this move could lead the price to areas between 1.6866 as first resistance and 1.6947 as the second resistance. Invalidation level is below 1.66.

European Indices Move Sideways

The FTSE 100 is moving in a range between 7,680 and 7,720, expecting more volatility. The price could make a limited high completing an A-B-C pattern before it continues the bearish cycle.

The DAX 30 is running sidelong but could complete three waves move in the zone between 12,946 to 13,014 pts before it continues the bearish sequence started on May 23rd, with the bearish target in the 12,528 pts area. If the price plunges below 12,386, the DAX could complete the bearish cycle near to the 12,000 pts. Invalidation level is updated to 13,102.7 pts. In case that price breaks above this level, the next bullish target is 13,250 pts.
