Dollar Index Head-and-Shoulders Pattern in Play After Weak Inflation Data

With three central bank meetings on the schedule today (see my colleague Fawad Razaqzada’s reports from earlier today for previews and recaps of the BOE, ECB, and CBRT meetings) , FX traders have been understandably focused away from the world’s reserve currency. However, dollar bulls who were keyed in on this week’s inflation data were no doubt disappointed.

US dollar woes continue to weigh amid weak inflation data

The second trading week of the new year began with some optimism that the US dollar might be able to stage a comeback after starting the year on a weak note. But circumstances have conspired in the latter half of this week to bring the dollar back down near year-to-date lows, extending the greenback’s pronounced weakness that prevailed throughout much of 2017.

GBP/USD could fall despite UK scoring a hat-trick of good PMIs

The UK economy scored a hat-trick of good news this week. The purchasing managers' indices (PMIs) for the key sectors all strengthened above forecasts in April. We had already seen this week that the manufacturing sector PMI had risen sharply to 57.3 from 54.2 previously and construction PMI to 53.1 from 52.2. The key question was how the dominant services sector performed amid the Brexit uncertainty and ahead of the general elections in June. Well, apparently, very well. The PMI came in at 55.8, up from 55.0 and above 54.6 expected. The pound recovered from earlier losses to hit the $1.29 handle again, where it was trading around at the time of this writing.

EUR/USD: Technical bias still points higher, but fundamental risks abound

Markets have predictably calmed down this afternoon as European traders clock out and US traders enjoy their President’s Day holidays, giving us a good opportunity to reevaluate the prospects for the world’s most widely-traded currency pair, EUR/USD.
