Hacking the Fundamentals
Nothing new came out of the FOMC Meeting Minutes from October released hours ago. But the market reacted confusingly, triggering a rally for the USD that was instantly negated early in the Asian Session. Some people are doubting the Fed, some even questioning if a rate hike is wise at this stage. While the Labor Sector is improving, and the is on track, some sectors of the US economy are not as good and could negatively be affected by the hike.
Nevertheless, the Fed wouldn't be this hawkish if they are just playing around. They are dropping big hints to prepare the world for a hike so that when it commences in December, the market's reaction won't be as dramatic. Unless something unlikely happens and the Jobs Data for November erases the previous month's gains, the Fed is still on track for liftoff.
Meanwhile, there seems to be a consensus among observers that ECB's further easing in December is almost a done deal.
Buying the USD against weaker currencies like EUR remains a great opportunity.
Hacking the Technicals
The EUR bulls rallied early in the Asian session today and has taken out yesterday's high. The rally could be stopped by a support turned resistance at 1.0700 which is also the current top of a that starts at 1.1500. But I don't trade on specially when the EUR just rebounded strongly against the USD. I am expecting a second leg up for the EUR today until tomorrow, so London and NY session will be watched closely.
Trading the EURUSD
I'm gonna watch how the market reacts today, if I see it struggling at 1.0700, I might trade from there. But if bulls shows some strength, the best entry would be at 1.0770.
