Cypriot central bank to meet tonight on capital controls

In an effort to avoid the money's outflow, the Cypriot central bank will meet tonight in an extraordinary session to introduce capital restrictions according to the Cyprus' president Anastasiades. The president also said, in a recent speech, the capital controls will be a temporary measure but difficult measures will be implemented in the following days. Meanwhile, Cypriot banks will open on Tuesday except Bank of Cyprus and Laiki. Earlier on the day, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, head of the Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers, affirmed that the Cypriot plan would be used as template for another countries in the eurozone. Investors were afraid for more levys and capital restrictions across the union. Renewed jitters on Cyprus and fears of contagion to other indebted sovereigns in the bloc periphery have been weighting on EUR after the increased vulnerability seen in Cypriot deposits.

And speaking of anti-climaxes, Cyprus appears to have reached an agreement to avoid bankruptcy but, whilst it protects savers with less than €100,000 on account in Cypriot banks, bond holders in Laiki Bank will lose their funds and depositors with more than €100,000 in Laiki will lose a substantial part of those funds. The accounts will be frozen while the bank is closed down and most of its debt transferred to Bank of Cyprus and that could result in larger investors losing up to 90% of their funds. That isn’t going to make Cyprus popular with their Russian and Eastern European tax avoiders and it won’t make Europe popular with Russia either. That’s could be a problem because Russia controls a massive amount of the energy used by Europe. If Cyprus and the EU wanted to make enemies, other than invading Russia, they couldn’t have hatched a better plan.

European Parliament considers bailing-in large depositors

The euro dropped in the European afternoon on information from Reuters that the European Parliament would be inclined to bail-in big savers, who hold deposits of over 100,000 euros at distressed banks. MEP Gunnar Hokmark, who is taking part in creating a new law aimed at dealing with such banks told Reuters that: "Deposits below 100,000 euros are protected … deposits above 100,000 euros are not protected and shall be treated as part of the capital that can be bailed in." Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem’s comments on Monday, suggesting that the bailout deal struck between Cyprus and the Troika might be a model for rescue programs for other EU countries in the future, caused the European stock markets to drop sharply in late trading.

Wall Street rises despite bad US data and Cyprus. The US stocks market traded higher on Tuesday as market didn't pay much attention to the lower-than-expected US consumer confidence but better-than-expected home prices. The Dow surged to new all-time high. The Dow Jones advaced 111.90 points or 0.77% to close at 14,559.65. The S&P 500 added 12.08 points or 0.78% to end the day at 1,563.77. And the Nasdaq Composite gained 17.18 points or 0.53% to finish at 3,252.48.

MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis



Upwards scenario: Neutral channel formation remains in play on the hourly chart. Our next resistance level is placed above the local peak at 1.2868 (R1). Strengthening above it would point to resistive structure at 1.2890 (R2) onto 1.2912 (R3). Downwards scenario: While both moving averages are pointing down, medium-term technical outlook would be negative. Key support level lie at 1.2837 (S1), below here opens a route towards to our initial targets at 1.2815 (S2) and 1.2793 (S3).

Forex Technical Analysis GBPUSDUpwards scenario: Next resistance level is seen at 1.5170 (R1), subsequently loss here might create upside momentum and drive market price towards to next targets at 1.5190 (R2) and 1.5210 (R3) in potential. Downwards scenario: If the price failed to establish further positive bias today, we expect to see retest of our key support level at 1.5147 (S1). Break here is required to enable initial targets at 1.5128 (S2) and 1.5 109 (S3) in potential.

If the price manages to overcome it we expect further acceleration towards to our initial targets at 95.08 (R2) and 95.25 (R3). Downwards scenario: Instrument might retest our next support level at 94.58 (S1) later on today. Market decline below it would create bearish sentiment and enable our interim target at 94.40 (S2). Final support for today locates at 94.22 (S3).

Capital controls in Cyprus to affect international transactions

he Cypriot government has revealed the details of the capital controls it intends to impose on transfers before banks reopen on Thursday. The restrictions are aimed at preventing an outflow of money and are supposed to last seven days. The capital controls, which will affect all accounts regardless of their currency, will involve a ban on taking out sums of money in cash greater than 3000 euros on one trip out of the country and a monthly 5000 euro limit on credit and debit card transactions abroad. Additionally, cashing cheques will be prohibited and savings accounts frozen until their expiry date. Restrictions on ATM withdrawals have not been listed among the capital control measures, even though they currently exist.

The financial markets are still mulling over the repercussions of the Cyprus drama and their angst is being fuelled by comments by Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem, that the EU sees the Cyprus deal as a template for any further bailouts. i.e. bond holders will lose their fund entirely and larger savers would have some of their funds syphoned off to aid the bailout. That was later denied according to a report on Bloomberg but investors with funds in EU banks are understandably edgy and all eyes will be on the Cypriot withdrawals over the weeks ahead. The fear of a run on European banks and the political pressure that would produce is ever-present and there are many reports about the rise of the German Anti-Euro political party. The Euro remains at the weaker end of its range in anticipation of those events

MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: The low of the 26-03-2013 offers an important resistive level at 1.2829 (R1). Any penetration above it might shift the balance to the bullish side and validate our intraday targets at 1.2859 (R2) and 1.2889 (R3). Downwards scenario: Further downtrend evolvement might occur below the immediate support level at 1.2752 (S1). Clearance here is required to enable our next targets at 1.2722 (S2) and 1.2693 (S3) in potential.

Resistance Levels: 1.2829, 1.2859, 1.2889
Support Levels: 1.2752, 1.2722, 1.2693


Forex Technical Analysis GBPUSD



Upwards scenario: Next hurdle that limit uptrend development lies above the local high at 1.5149 (R1). If the break occurs here, next attractive level could be exposed at 1.5165 (R2) and any further rise would then be limited to 1.5181 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, possibility of market decline is seen below the next support level at 1.5127 (S1). Loss here would suggest next targets at 1.5110 (S2) and 1.5092 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.5149, 1.5165, 1.5181
Support Levels: 1.5127, 1.5110, 1.5092


Forex Technical Analysis USDJPY



Upwards scenario: Possibility of market strengthening is seen above the resistance level at 94.27 (R1). Clearance here is required to validate next interim target at 94.42 (R2) and any further rise would then be targeting mark at 94.58 (R3). Downwards scenario: However the downside direction remains favored according to the technical indicators. Fresh low offers a key support measure at 93.98 (S1). Decline below it would enable next targets located at 93.83 (S2) and 93.69 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 94.27, 94.42, 94.58

The Cyprus moment

The euro zone could be slipping into a new period of turbulence even before it has had a chance to return to growth. And yet the improvement previously discussed in these pages has been confirmed: borrowing conditions for governments have improved and some, such as Ireland, have made a successful return to the markets. Ratings on sovereign debt have stabilised. One sign of an easing of financial tensions in the zone is that the internal balances in the Eurosystem, as reflected in Target 2 balances, have narrowed to a degree. These are encouraging but fragile signs that could be compromised by the difficulties in managing the Cypriot crisis or by the political uncertainty in Italy. Is there a new European crisis brewing in Cyprus? The country’s banking system needs to be recapitalised, failing which the European Central Bank (ECB) – which is not responsible for solvency issues – could cease to provide support. However, given the size of the banking sector (seven times GDP) the sums in play by far exceed the country’s repayment capacity. The EUR 17bn of total needs (of which EUR 10bn for banks) account for one year’s GDP for Cyprus, which is only the 26th biggest economy in European Union. A loan of this amount from the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) would push government debt up to the unsustainable level of around 200% of GDP. The main risk would then be the snuffing out of the Cypriot economy for many years, with no certainty that any financial aid would in fact be repaid.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: On the upside resistive structure at 1.2836 (R1) prevents further gains. Clearance here is required to open route towards to next target at 1.2859 (R2) and then final target could be triggered at 1.2884 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand price could retest our next support level at 1.2787 (S1) later on today.

US Data, Italian Politics and Holidays

While it has been and will continue to be an exceedingly quiet morning in the foreign exchange market with most of the major markets closed for the Easter holidays, there were still have a few pieces of U.S. data released this morning. Personal income rose 1.1% in the month of February while personal spending rose 0.7%. USD/JPY barely reacted to the news because there's no one trading today but both numbers were better than expected and consistent with a continued recovery in the U.S. economy. The stronger increase in incomes versus spending is also a healthy trend that makes the light at the end of the tunnel shine slightly brighter for the Federal Reserve. The final University of Michigan Consumer Confidence numbers will be released later this morning but no revisions are expected and so the data should be a nonevent for the U.S. dollar.

Now that the situation in Cyprus has been pacified, the focus in Europe has shifted back to Italy where there were rumors that Berlusconi is open to a coalition with Bersani. He has since denied this possibility, saying instead that a grand coalition with an agreement on program reforms is the only acceptable option. Recent polls suggest that 50% of Italians are ready to vote again. - https://support.fxcc.com/email/technical/01042013/

Spain will revised down its 2013 GDP forecast to -1.0%; Negotiating new deficit target

Spain is discussing with the European union a new 2013 budget deficit target around 6% of the GDP, the current target is 4.5%, according to a Reuters information citing Spanish officials sources. The Spanish government needs to renegotiate a new target as they would revise down the Kingdom of Spain 2013 GDP forecast to -1.0% from the -0.5% expected before.

Today's Asia-Pacific session has had a common denominator in the form of a falling USD across the board, and specially against Yen, that has seen a 1-month fresh high printing a low at 92.55 in the USD/JPY pair, something not seen since early March. Strangely enough, Gold has printed fresh session highs at $1604 at the same time. The other main driver of the season has come from Australia and the RBA holding rates at 3%, with scope to ease further if market conditions are met, the statement said. Local share markets traded in a mixed way with Tokyo leading the loses at some point down more than -2%, but last at -0.83%, with Shanghai -0.38%, and Kospi -0.44%, while Australian ASX is up +0.34%, and Hang-Seng +0.10%. As the London open gets closer, after a long 4-day weekend closed for holidays, the USD finds some bids, making EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD to ease a bit, while USD/JPY recovers some ground. European futures markets show a mixed open ahead, with small advances and declines in main equity indexes.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: EURUSD gained momentum and determined medium-term positive bias. Next hurdle ahead is seen at 1.2878 (R1). Clearance here would suggest next intraday targets at 1.2892 (R2) and 1.2907 (R3) in potential. Downwards scenario: Any penetration below the support level at 1.2844 (S1) might create more scope for the instrument weakness in near-term perspective.

Cyprus FinMin steps down after finalizing bailout deal

Cypriot finance minister Michael Sarris submitted his resignation on Tuesday, just after concluding bailout negotiations with Troika officials. Labor minister Haris Georgiadis has been nominated to the post shortly after. According to the Greek newspaper Kathimerini, other changes in the Cypriot government might follow today. It also suggests that Michael Sarris was replaced due to the Cyprus president Nicos Anastasiades’s dissatisfaction with the way he handled the crisis. As for the bailout deal, it was agreed that Cyprus would receive the first tranche of the aid in May. The fiscal adjustment period has been extended until 2018. The bailout loans will carry interest of 2.5% and repayment, spread over 12 years, is to begin in 10 years time. Michael Sarris also said that it was uncertain when the capital controls could be lifted completely.

Popular opinion in Brussels is that the worst outcome for the euro currency union would be if one of the member-states were forced out. On this pretext, the ECB has so far bailed out the banking systems of Portugal, Ireland, Greece, and Spain. When Cyprus faced a run on its banks two weeks ago, the eurocrats stepped in with a new proposal to shore up reserves: forfeiture of 9.9% on deposits over €100K and 6.7% below that level. This has come to be known as a "bail in." The reaction was immediate and intense. Cypriots took to the streets to protest the anticipated losses and breach of the government's deposit insurance guarantees for amounts under €100K; riot police were deployed. The Russian government was upset it was not consulted and that its citizens' deposits would face even steeper losses. The talking heads lamented the grave precedent that this move would set.

IMF will lend 1 billion euros to Cyprus

The IMF announced on Wednesday that its contribution to the Cyprus bailout would amount to 1 billion euros. It has also presented the harsh conditions of the aid. These include increases in taxes: the corporate tax is to be raised from 10% to 12.5%, while the income tax from 15% to 30%. Additionally, Cyprus is required to introduce more austerity measures in order to reach a 4% GDP surplus target in 2018. "There will be protection for the most vulnerable groups. The social welfare system will be reviewed to streamline administration costs, minimize the overlap of existing programs, and improve their targeting to ensure that public resources reach those in need," IMF chief Christine Lagarde said on Wednesday. She also added that the funds should be approved by the IMF board at the beginning of next month.

The euro traded slightly higher against the U.S. dollar ahead of the European Central Bank's monetary policy announcement. The ECB is widely expected to leave interest rates unchanged but given the recent weakness in German economic data and problems in Cyprus, there's speculation that the ECB could lay the foundation for a rate cut. If that were the case, it would be signaled in Mario Draghi's post monetary policy meeting press conference. There are plenty of reasons for why the ECB may be warming to the idea of more stimulus but German stocks have recently climbed to 5 year highs and the EUR has fallen – two factors that help to support the region's economy. That may not be enough to wash away the ECB's concerns but it's a factor in this week's central bank meeting. Either way, we don't expect any optimism from the ECB and pessimism alone could sink the EUR if Draghi even hints that a rate cut is possible. The cracks are beginning to show in Germany and Cyprus could be the first of many weaker southern European nations such as Slovenia to seek emergency funding from the ECB. To preempt some of these difficulties, Draghi may want to ease. When the ECB plans to change monetary policy, they usually like to prepare the market for the move by dropping hints early. However if we are wrong and Draghi sounds calm and unconcerned about the recent deterioration in economic data and the problems in Cyprus and Italy, it would be just what the EUR/USD needs to stage a stronger recovery towards 1.30.

More Risk From Portugal

The euro area has had a rough few weeks: Cyprus agreed a bailout program that will decimate its economy, Italy’s Pier Luigi Bersani, the Democratic Party leader, failed to put together a government, borrowing costs for businesses in the peripheral countries continue to rise, unemployment reached record highs, and purchasing manager indices across the region greatly underperformed expectations. There may be one more piece of bad news to add to the pile before the week is out: Portugal’s budget for 2013 may fall apart, and with it the Portuguese government. During his New Year’s Day address, Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva called on the constitutional court to rule whether the budget, which consists of tax increases and spending cuts worth 5.3 billion euros ($6.8 billion), is legal.

If the court rules against the budget, an estimated 2 billion euros of the austerity measures may be compromised. This would immediately derail Portugal’s progress toward hitting its fiscal targets, only weeks after the country’s international creditors relaxed them. Rejection of the budget could also cause the government to collapse if the ruling Social Democratic Party cannot find alternative austerity measures to get Portugal back on track with its bailout program. It is unclear exactly when the constitutional court will make its ruling, but it may be before the week is out. Concerns over what the court might say could account for an increase in Portuguese two-year bond yields to over 3.8 percent today, before falling back to around 3 percent again later in the day. This isn’t what a country looking to exit its bailout program and regain full market access needs. -FXstreet.com

Portugal to slash spending after court ruling setback

Following the Portuguese constitutional court decision last Friday, in which certain austerity measures from the 2013 budget were rejected, Portugal's Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho said on Sunday the government will implement further cuts to compensate the unexpected budgetary setback, so that it can meet targets set by the Troika. Passos Coelho said in a televised address to the country that the court ruling was, cited by Reuters, "a serious obstacle for and risk" this year and next, but showed commitment to comply with the EU/IMF rescue program.

The Prime Minister ruled out an increase in taxes but one of the measures being explored was to cut on more spending, as mentioned above. The government is also seeking more flexible conditions from international lenders, so that they can successfully complete the bailout programme in 2014. According to Reuters: "Analysts expect Portugal to be able to agree replacement measures with the European Union and International Monetary Fund to make up for the court ruling, which could cost it between 900 million and 1.3 billion euros."

German Fin Min urges Portugal to find new austerity measures

German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said in a radio interview on Monday that Portugal should come up with a new set of austerity measures, after the country’s high court rejected parts of the plan put forward by the Portuguese government, deeming them illegal. “Portugal has made lots of progress in the last year to gain access to financial markets,” the German finance minister said. “But after this (constitutional court) decision it will have to find new measures.” Portuguese Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho has already announced plans of carrying out cuts in health and education spending, in order to meet the targets set by the Troika and avoid asking for a second rescue package. He assured however that no new tax hikes would be introduced in 2013.

Moody’s maintains a negative outlook on Spanish rating

Moody’s rating agency announced today that it maintains a negative outlook on Spain’s Baa3 credit rating. One of the main reasons for this decision was the agency’s conviction that the country will fail to reach the 4.5% deficit target fixed by the EU. In Moody’s opinion, Spain will only manage to bring down its deficit to 6% this year, failing thus to reach the 4.5% target required by Brussels. In the report, which was released in the European morning, the agency assures that the continuous deviations from the deficit objectives and the recurring revisions of the estimates carried out by the Spanish government undermine its credibility. Even though the agency acknowledges the country’s fiscal consolidation efforts and highlights the good results obtained in 2012, it also warns against the multiple threats to the Spanish economy.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: While price is quoted above the moving averages out technical outlook would be positive. Yesterday high offers next resistance level at 1.3103 (R1). Any price action above it would suggest next targets at 1.3128 (R2) and 1.3154 (S3). Downwards scenario: Penetration below the support at 1.3068 (S1) is liable to put more downward pressure on the instrument in the near-term perspective. As a result our supportive means at 1.3042 (S2) and 1.3015 (S3) might be triggered.

Downwards scenario: On the other hand, successful retest of our next support level at 1.5311 (S1) might provide sufficient momentum for the price acceleration towards to interim target at 1.5292 (S2).

Eurogroup releases statement on Cyprus

Eurozone finance ministers, who are holding talks in Dublin today, have released a statement on Cyprus in which they assure that the country has met all the requirements, allowing for the bailout deal to be completed. According to the document: The Eurogroup notes with satisfaction that the Cypriot authorities have implemented decisive bank resolution, restructuring and recapitalisation measures to address the fragile and unique situation of Cyprus' financial sector. The Eurogroup commends the authorities for their demonstrated resolve in implementing these important measures in a tight timeframe and reiterates its appreciation for the efforts made by the Cypriot citizens over the last weeks.” Eurozone finance ministers expect the bailout fund ESM board to give the green light to the proposal of granting Cyprus a 10 billion euro bailout on April 24. The first tranche of the aid could then be released by mid-may.

Following the release of the statement on the Cypriot bailout, Eurozone finance ministers, who hold talks today in Dublin, announced that the loan repayment for Ireland and Portugal would be extended. Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem confirmed that the Eurozone finance ministers agreed to give seven more years to Portugal and Ireland to repay their bailout loans amounting to 78 billion euros and 85 billion euros, respectively. He also informed that the maturity extension will most probably be approved at the upcoming Ecofin meeting, which kicks off later today. EU Commissioner Olli Rehn expressed hope that Ecofin would give the green light to the measure, which in his opinion is an important step on the road to exiting the rescue program.

Portugal unveils new austerity measures to appease the Troika

Troika inspectors arrived in Lisbon on Monday in order to carry out the seventh review of the country’s bailout program, since it had received 78 billion euros of aid in 2011. Portugal had to come up with new austerity measures to meet the budget gap of about 1.3 billion euros, which emerged after the Portuguese Constitutional court ruled that four of the measures proposed by the PM Pedro Passos Coelho’s government were illegal.

Currently the 2 billion euro bailout tranche is blocked. If the Troika’s review has a positive conclusion, the money will be released and Portugal will also have a better chance of obtaining the 7 year loan repayment extension, approved on Friday by Ecofin. Passos Coelho said today that the additional 600 million euros would come from cuts in healthcare, education , social security and public services and another 600 million euros from reductions of administrative costs. These new austerity measures have been heavily criticized by the left-wing opposition and labor unions.

IMF cuts global growth for fourth consecutive time, European recession likelihood 50%

International Monetary Fund (IMF) trimmed its global growth forecast and urged European policy makers to use “aggressive” monetary policy as a second year of contraction leaves the euro area’s recovery lagging behind the rest of the world. The global economy will continue to grow a further 3.3% this year, less than the 3.5% forecast in January, after 3.2% growth in 2012, the fund noted today, cutting its prediction for this year a fourth consecutive time. Moreover, the Washington-based IMF sees the 17-country euro area shrinking 0.3% , compared with a 0.2% retreat in January, with France joining Spain and Italy in the contraction. “The main challenge is still very much in Europe,” IMF Chief Economist Olivier Blanchard said. “Europe should do everything it can to strengthen private demand. What this means is aggressive monetary policy and what this means is getting the financial system to be stronger -- it’s still not in great shape.” As central banks in U.S. and Japan enact unorthodox policies such as asset purchases to rekindle and reinvigorate demand, pressure is mounting on the European Central Bank to do more. The IMF report describes a “three-speed” recovery led by emerging markets including China, with the U.S. forging ahead and Europe trailing after fighting a debt crisis that has forced bailouts of five countries in the region.

Weidmann opens the door to an ECB rate cut and foresees a lost decade in Europe

Jens Weidmann, the Bundesbank’s president, has affirmed that the European Central Bank could cut its interest rates if economic data continues worsening, according to an interview published by WSJ. Market has been speculating about the possibilities of the ECB cutting rates and now with inflation below the 2.0% it seems more than likely in May or June. However, Weidmann said the ECB “might adjust in response to new information," but he doesn’t “think that the monetary policy stance is the key issue."

"A point that I think is important to make, perhaps less for my central bank colleagues than for finance ministers,” Weidmann pointed, “is that the medication monetary policy makers administer only cures the symptoms and that it comes with side-effects and risks." In Weidmann's words, the important thing is the development of the reforms at the national and European level. The Bundesbank president also stated that the European recovery will take as much as a decade. The opinion is contrary to other European leaders who said that the worst of the crisis is over. "Overcoming the crisis and the crisis effects will remain a challenge over the next decade,” Weidmann affirmed.

Downwards scenario: Negative developments might be settled below the important support level at 97.81 (S1). Any price action below it would then be targeting support at 97.56 (S2) and final target could be exposed at 97.29 (S3) mark.

Japan escapes censure on the G-20 meeting

he G-20 communiqué provied little fresh headlines to market participants, with the main take away on FX-relate news being the permissive stance towards Japan's monetary policies to beat deflation. The G20 communiqué is basically echoing the same position by the G7 back in February. As noted by Eamonn Sheridan of Forexlive: "Leading into the G20 meeting market concern was that Japan would come under fire for its deflation-fighting policies (which have, as a side-effect, a weaker yen or are have as a central component the aim of a weaker yen, depending on your point of view). It became clear on Friday that Japan had escaped censure from the G20 over its policies, a position made officially clear at the conclusion of the meetings."

The section in the G20 communique that makes references to currencies, stated: "We reiterate our commitments to move more rapidly toward more market-determined exchange rate systems and exchange rate flexibility to reflect underlying fundamentals, and avoid persistent exchange rate misalignments. We will refrain from competitive devaluation and will not target our exchange rates for competitive purposes, and we will resist all forms of protectionism and keep our markets open." It added: "We reiterate that excess volatility of financial flows and disorderly movements in exchange rates have adverse implications for economic and financial stability. Monetary policy should be directed toward domestic price stability and continuing to support economic recovery according to the respective mandates of central banks. We will be mindful of unintended negative side effects stemming from extended periods of monetary easing."

Slovenia Bailout Would Be Spanish-Cypriot Mongrel

The ink on the provisional bailout agreement for Cyprus was hardly dry last month before bond markets shifted their attention to Slovenia, another small euro- area country with a banking problem. The Slovenian government’s borrowing costs subsequently shot up. The fear that Slovenia might be the next Cyprus, with international creditors again forcing losses onto bank bondholders and uninsured depositors, is only partly justified. Slovenia isn’t Cyprus, and its rescue program, when it comes, will probably look like a hybrid between the Spanish-style bailout and the Cyprus-style bail-in.

Spain might get EU deficit target extension

The EU signalized on Tuesday that Spain might be granted two more years to reach the deficit target. Additionally, the President of the European Commission José Manuel Durão Barroso said yesterday that 2013 deficit targets for other EU countries could also be eased. EU sources suggested that the European Commission could allow Spain to have a budget deficit of 6.5% this year and that deadline for it to reach 3% could be extended by two more years. Barroso said that the correction of budgetary imbalances in Greece, Portugal and Spain has been very impressive and that the European Commission is considering extending the deadlines for the correction of excessive deficits also for other EU Member States, as the objective is to combine the adjustment of deficits and debt with growth in the short term.

Yesterday weak German PMI data release (47.9 actual vs. 49.1 estimates) fueled more talk of possible ECB rate cuts in the coming months. Although the EURUSD did close below the 1.3000 level, some analysts found the lack of follow through to the downside impressive and believe the key will be to see how it reacts to data in coming sessions. The main report due out today will be the German IFO which is released at 8:00 GMT. Economic data out of the UK is light in the coming session, with Mortgage Approvals due out at 8:30 GMT. The US session will also be fairly quiet with Durable Goods due out at 12:30 GMT.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Instrument gained momentum on the downside recently, turning short-term bias to the negative side. However upwards penetration above the resistance at 1.3012 (R1) would enable bullish forces and might drive market price towards to our initial targets at 1.3031 (R2) and 1.3051 (R3). Downwards scenario: Fresh low formed today offers an important supportive mark at 1.2987 (S1). Depreciation below it might shift medium-term tendency to the bearish side and validate our next intraday targets at 1.2970 (S2) and 1.2953 (S3).

Downwards scenario: On the other side, any prolonged movement below the support at 1.5225 (S1) might enable downside forces and drive market price towards to supportive means at 1.5211 (S2) and 1.5197 (S3) later on today

Enrico Letta named Italian PM

Italian President Giorgio Napolitano, who was reelected to the post last weekend, has given the mandate to form a government to center-left deputy leader Enrico Letta on Wednesday.After accepting the nomination the new Italian Prime Minister said that he would form "a government of service to the country." He stressed that politics in Italy should regain credibility in order to make head against the crisis. He said that the situation in Italy was very difficult at the moment and that the most urgent issues which should be addressed were unemployment, poverty and problems faced by small businesses. He suggested that the Eurozone should not press so much for austerity and rather focus on boosting growth in the area. 46 year old Enrico Letta is the second youngest Prime Minister in the history of Italian politics. He is the nephew of Gianni Letta, Silvio Berlusconi's close ally and despite his young age he has extensive government experience (he held various ministerial positions in the Italian government and served as a Member of the European Parliament for the North-East region) The cabinet formed by Letta will receive support mainly from Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PDL) party, Letta's Democratic Party (PD) and Mario Monti's centrist Civic Choice.

MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Retracement action is reasonable scenario for EURUSD today. Our focus is shifted to the key resistive barrier at 1.3061 (R1). If the price manages to overcome it we would suggest next intraday targets at 1.3079 (R2) and 1.3096 (R3). Downwards scenario: Possible downside expansion would attack our support levels at 1.3017 (S2) and 1.3000 (S3). However prior reaching our targets, market should manage to overcome key resistive structure at 1.3034 (S1).

Downwards scenario: On the other hand, if the price failed to gain momentum on the upside we expect retest of our next support level at 1.5298 (S1). Clearance here is required to keep the downside extension intact and enable our lower targets at 1.5285 (S2) and 1.5270 (S3).

Downwards scenario: Signal of instrument depreciation would be created below the next support level at 99.15 (S1). In such case we would suggest next interim target at 98.77 (S2) and then our final aim at 98.40 (S3).

All eyes on the ECB
This week's data releases were disappointing on balance. While economic numbers in the US and China continued to come in on a weak(er) note, the eurozone's business climate readings failed to improve again. The UK's GDP report, however, was a nice exception, showing that the economy returned to growth earlier this year. With German business sentiment figures down again (but overall still signaling growth), the French numbers pretty mixed at low levels and Italy's reading (to be released next Thursday) likely up from depressed lows, EMU-wide sentiment does not show signs of recovery after the weakness of the last two months. This should further challenge the ECB's expectations of a stabilization in activity in 1H13 followed by a gradual recovery in the second half of the year. Coupled with recent dovish remarks from Council members and the "lively debate" during the last meeting, this indicates that the central bank should cut the refi rate (but not the deposit rate) by 25bp within the next five weeks. The exact timing of the rate cut is a close call. But our guess is that June is more likely than May, also because the ECB will have the 1Q13 GDP numbers at hand and will have finished its macroeconomic update procedure by then.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

EUR/USD – The week we’ve all been waiting for? ECB and Fed meetings on tap

EUR/USD has started the week off on a strong note, benefiting from the headlines that Enrico Letta has been elected as the new Italian Prime Minister. At one point earlier in the session, the pair had traded as high as 1.3068, but is now back to consolidating near the opening print of 1.3050. According to analysts at FXStreet.com, “After two months of an irreconcilable political deadlock, Enrico Letta, 46, and member of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), was sworn in as new Italian Prime Minister on Sunday. Letta, who has managed to pull together a 21-member Cabinet, while becoming the third youngest Prime Minister since World War II, nominated an unprecedented seven women to his Cabinet. Fabrizio Saccomanni was appointed finance minister, taking on the responsibility to overlook and bring forward much needed economic reforms to the economy.”

The main event later this week will be the upcoming ECB Monetary Policy meeting on May 2nd at 11:45 GMT. Analysts have been pointing to the weak economic data from Germany, and continued dovish comments from ECB officials as a good reason to expect an adjustment to current policy.

Forex Technical Analysis EURUSD :



MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: We are not expecting significant volatility increase today however upside risk aversion is seen above the next resistance level at 1.3076 (R1). Price evaluation above this level would suggest next targets at 1.3094 (R2) and 1.3111 (R3). Downwards scenario: Price regress below the support level at 1.3037 (S1) would increase likelihood of failing towards to our key supportive barrier at 1.3026 (S2) and any further market decline would then be targeting final support for today at 1.3014 (S3).

FOMC Meeting -- a major catalyst or non-event?

The EUR/USD finished the day sharply higher, closing up 0.55% at 1.3166. Intra-day the pair traded as high as 1.3186 but was once again unable to take out the 1.3200 level. All eyes will be on the upcoming US session, with both Construction Spending and ISM Manufacturing PMI due out at 14:00 GMT. Following this data, we will get the Federal Reserve Monetary Policy statement at 18:00GMT. However, with all the hype surrounding the upcoming economic data due out of the US, some analysts are saying not to look too much into the release and the effect on the US Dollar might be minimal.

According to Kathy Lien of BK Asset Management, “Given the recent disappointments in economic data, it will be very difficult for the hawks inside the Fed to justify hardening their call for a rate cut. In contrast, the doves will sing louder about the need for maintain the current level of stimulus. However none of these discussions are likely to appear in the FOMC statement.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Neutral hourly studies point towards further consolidation, with a break of next resistive structure at 1.3185 (R1) is required to spark stronger upside action. In such scenario we would suggest our next initial targets at 1.3213 (R2) and 1.3239 (R3). Downwards scenario: Next support level is seen at 1.3156 (S1), any penetration below it might activate downside pressure and enable lower target at 1.3120 (S2). Any further market decline would then be limited to 1.3084 (S3).

Will the ECB Kill the EUR Rally?

The euro has performed extremely well leading up to Thursday's European Central Bank monetary policy announcement. In fact, it may be hard for some investors to believe that the majority of economists are looking for the ECB to cut interest rates by 25bp. Traditionally, expectations for easier monetary policy is negative for a currency but in the case of the euro, since the central bank started dropping hints about the potential for lower rates and economic data confirmed the need for more stimulus, the euro appreciated in value, rising to its highest level against the U.S. dollar in 2 months today.

The European Central Bank has done a great job of setting expectations for this month's monetary policy meeting. They are known for preparing the market for any upcoming changes in policy with the hopes of minimizing volatility when the actual change is made. Since the last meeting, we have heard consistently cautious comments from policymakers who all sound as if they are warming to idea of more stimulus if data warrants it and it certainly does given the widespread weakness in German business, consumer and investor confidence along with the decline in manufacturing and service activity. - https://support.fxcc.com/email/technical/02052013/
