EUR/USD still searching for direction after NFP Data

After trading as high as 1.3284 ahead of the US Non Farm Payroll data, the EUR/USD was unable to hold onto early gains and ended the session 68 pips lower 1.3216. The lack of follow through after the sharp gains early in the week is somewhat concerning, but thus far the pair has been able to hold onto the critical support level located in the 1.3200 area. Some analysts are pointing towards a combination between the Non Farm Payroll data, as well as comments from ECB President Draghi at the most recent ECB meeting as reasons to expect limited upside for the EUR/USD in coming days. According to Marc Chandler, Head of Currency Strategy at BBH, “We warned that although the technical factors looked constructive for the dollar, the fundamentals, in the form of the ECB not delivering on the negative deposit rate (that Draghi said he had an open mind about) and additional aid for small and medium size businesses, were less supportive.”

Although he believes the jobs number was not strong enough to warrant any QE tapering in the near future, Chandler noted downside potential in the USD is limited at current levels. “We anticipated that the jobs data would not support notions from some Fed officials (and market participants) that tapering of the purchases of long-term assets could being as early as this month. Now we suspect the dollar's down move has been largely exhausted and we anticipate a recovery in the dollar into a new trading range,” Chandler concluded.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Market sentiment is neutral according to the technical indicators. Though any prolonged movement above the resistive measure at 1.3242 (R1) would suggest next intraday targets at 1.3277 (R2) and 1.3311 (R3). Downwards scenario: Medium-term ascending structure might lose its power if the price manages to overcome next support level at 1.3187 (S1). Clearance here might determine intraday negative bias and expose our initial targets at 1.3159 (S2) and 1.3129 (S3).

Upwards scenario: GBPUSD remains under correction mode after initial uptrend formation. However strengthening above the next resistive structure at 1.5565 (R1) might activate bullish pressure and expose our intraday targets at 1.5602 (R2) and 1.5641 (R3). Downwards scenario: Key support level lies at 1.5486 (S1). Penetration below it might shift medium-term tone to the negative side. Our intraday targets locates at 1.5449 (S2) and 1.5411 (S3).

Downwards scenario: On the other hand, depreciation below the technically important support level at 97.77 (S1) would allow further market decline on the medium-term perspective.

USD/JPY searching for direction after BoJ Meeting

The USD/JPY has experienced a fairly volatile Asia session, at one point declining all the way down to 97.78 before finding support and currently consolidating near the 98.30 level. The main catalyst for the sharp drop appeared to come right after the Bank of Japan announced they wouldn’t be making any changes to current monetary policy.

Analysts on the FXStreet.com team noted although many had expected the policy to remain unchanged, there were rumors circling of possible adjustments to help control the recent government bond market volatility which may have helped spark the initial declines when market participants saw the adjustments to current policy were not made. “The Bank of Japan monetary policy meeting offered no particular response to the latest episodes of market volatility in JGB, which includes the failure to change maturities of fixed rate operations in order to ease bond market volatility. Also, there had been some rumors about a proposal to extend the loans to 2 years, something that was not accepted, leading to a strong selling in both the Nikkei and USD/JPY,” FXstreet.com team concluded.

Strong technical set up helps EUR/USD post highest close since mid February

The EUR/USD finished the session sharply higher, surpassing the critical resistance level near 1.3300 and closing up 57 pips at 1.3312 (highest daily close since Feb 19th). In what was a quiet day of economic releases from both the EU and US, analysts were searching for catalyst to help explain the impressive strength. Derek Halpenny, European Head of Global Markets Research at Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ, was pointing towards recent hawkish comments from ECB President Draghi as an initial catalyst for the sharp move higher. “The euro remains incredibly solid and has advanced further versus the dollar. ECB President Draghi did speak yesterday and stated that rates would rise once the euro-zone economy improved – a statement of the obvious.”

In further discussing his views, Halpenny went on to comment, “We suspect that the current euro demand is probably emanating from the unwinding of long high yielding currency positions. Both the dollar and the euro were likely used as funding currencies for these positions and hence the euro is modestly out-performing the dollar.” To conclude his view, Halpenny went on to say he expects the EUR/USD will start to decline once the position unwind is completed.

 IMF approves €657 million bailout tranche for Portugal

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) approved the seventh tranche of Portugal's bailout Wednesday and gave the country more time to meet its budget-cutting goals. The IMF will disburse the next tranche worth €657 million after the successful review of a bailout program that started in 2011. Meanwhile, the fund eased conditions, allowing Portugal to lower its budget deficit to 3% of GDP by 2015 from 6.4% in 2012, instead of by 2014. "The Portuguese authorities have put forward a program that is economically well-balanced and has growth and job creation at its center", IMF acting Managing Director John Lipsky wrote in a statement.

With Chinese markets back in business after a 5 day weekend closed over holidays, local share markets were dumped with Nikkei index leading the way lower losing at one point more than -6%. USD posted fresh 4-month lows at 80.66 DXY with USD/JPY printing fresh 2-month lows at 94.36, and EUR/USD 3-month highs above 1.3360. Gold and Oil showed little changes on the move. Australian job market surprised to the upside adding 1.1k more jobs to the economy when -10k were expected, making AUD/USD dip below the 0.9450 level. RBNZ left interest rates unchanged at 2.5%, with NZD/USD hanging around the 0.79 figure.

Upwards scenario: Uptrend evolvement remains in power. Further appreciation above the resistive barrier at 1.3371 (R1) is compulsory to commence positive market structure and validate next intraday targets at 1.3395 (R2) and 1.3418 (R3). Downwards scenario: Any downside fluctuations remains for now limited to the key support barrier at 1.3335 (S1). Only clear break here would be a signal of possible market easing towards to our targets at 1.3311 (S2) and 1.3288 (S3) in potential.

Downwards scenario: We placed our support level right above the Monday high at 1.5654 (S1).

Upwards scenario: Medium term bias is clearly negative on USDJPY however we expect see some recovery action later on today. Key resistive bastion lies at 95.12 (R1). If the price manages to break it, we would suggest next targets at 95.67 (R2) and 96.21 (R3). Downwards scenario: Risk of price depreciation is seen below the support level at 93.90 (S1). A fall below it might prolong the weakness towards to next target at 93.40 (S2) and any further market decline would then be limited to final support at 92.91 (S3).

Draghi says OMT necessary, effective and within ECB mandate

Mario Draghi defended the Outright Monetary Transactions (OMT) a day after the ECB and the Bundesbank confronted in a public hearing at Germany's top court on the legality of the bond-buying program. ECB President said the program was necessary, effective and in line with the ECB mandate. He pointed that benefits are 'visible to everybody' across Europe including Germany, in particular, falling bond yields in Italy and Spain.

"It is fully in line with our mandate because it is designed to preserve price stability for the euro area and uses instruments foreseen in the Statute," Draghi said according to the transcript of a video statement after receiving the responsible leadership award 2013 from the European School of Management and Technology in Berlin. Meanwhile, Draghi urged eurozone leaders to stick reforms and to push for greater integration "to build a stronger economic and monetary union based on shared sovereignty and greater legitimacy". "For the euro area now to move forward and establish itself on stronger ground, we need all decision makers to take their responsibilities," Draghi said.

Upwards scenario: While instrument trades above the 20 SMA, it keeps immediate upside potential. Next resistance is seen at 1.3379 (R1), break above it might extend gains towards to next targets at 1.3412 (R2) and 1.3444 (R3). Downwards scenario: Failure to establish positive bias today might lead to the recovery action in near term perspective. Next immediate support locates at 1.3305 (S1).

Dollar Outlook Next Week Hinges on Bernanke

The month of June has proven to be an extremely volatile period in the forex market as the U.S. dollar fell aggressively against many major currencies. Unfortunately we can't expect the markets to calm anytime soon with a heavy dose of economic data expected from countries around the world. The U.K. and Australia will release monetary policy minutes, the Swiss National Bank will hold a monetary policy meeting and of course - we also have the Federal Reserve's monetary policy announcement on the calendar. In addition to these event risks, Eurozone PMIs, New Zealand GDP, UK retail sales, US manufacturing data and Canadian retail sales are also scheduled for release. Yet there's no question that of all these events, the most important will be the Fed meeting. Much of the volatility in the financial markets has been caused by the uncertainty of Fed policy. There's been a lot of talk about tapering asset purchases, which has caused stocks to weaken but at the same time, central bank officials and noted Fed watchers have stressed that a reduction in Quantitative Easing does not equate to tightening. They are absolutely right and we think that the rest of the market is beginning to realize this connection as well but based on the reaction to Jon Hilsenrath's article this week, there are still a subset who need convincing.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: EURUSD trapped to the consolidation phase. Local high at 1.3358 (R1) offers a key resistance level. Break here is required to take the pair towards to initial targets at 1.3379 (R2) and 1.3399 (R3). Downwards scenario: Penetration below the support level at 1.3294 (S1) might maintain a negative tone and prolong corrective action. Price devaluation would then be targeting our supportive measures at 1.3272 (S2) and 1.3250 (S3) in potential.

OUTLOOK SUMMARY  : Up
TREND CONDITION  : Sideway
TRADERS SENTIMENT  : Bearish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY  : Low

Upwards scenario: GBPUSD is approaching our next resistive barrier at 1.5737 (R1) on the upside. Surpassing of this level may initiate bullish pressure towards to next visible targets at 1.5768 (R2) and 1.5799 (R3). Downwards scenario: If the price failed to overcome our next resistance level we expect market easing below the support level at 1.5671 (S1). Loss here would shift our intraday outlook to the bearish side with expected targets at 1.5639 (S2) and 1.5606 (S3).

OUTLOOK SUMMARY  : Down
TREND CONDITION  : Sideway
TRADERS SENTIMENT  : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY  : Low

Upwards scenario: Upside formation is limited now to the next resistive barrier at 95.05 (R1). Clearance here is required to provide a space for a move towards to next target at 95.53 (R2) and then final aim would be 96.04 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, an element of supportive measures could be found at 94.24 (S1). Clearance here would suggest possible downtrend development towards to initial targets, located at 93.75 (S2) and 93.27 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 95.05, 95.53, 96.04

Dollar Strengthens, Stocks Soar as Traders Position for FOMC

Yesterday we saw how much of a difference a few hours can make with the dollar recovering earlier losses to end the North American session higher against most of the major currencies. With only one day to go before the Federal Reserve's monetary policy announcement, the big move in equities and the reversal in currencies suggests that traders are beginning to position for FOMC. Yet taking a look at how the various markets are trading, there seems to be more confusion than clarity on what the central bank will say or do. The rise in the dollar and the increase in U.S. Treasury yields imply that currency and equity traders believe that the main takeaway from this week's meeting will be that the central bank is gearing up to taper. However the rally in U.S. equities suggest that stock traders believe that the Fed will make a point to distinguish tapering from tightening and reassure investors that cheap and easy money will remain available for a very long period of time. If Bernanke is successful in convincing the market that they will take a very gradualist approach to tapering, the U.S. dollar could give up its gains. However if Bernanke emphasizes the central bank's plans for tapering over its difference with tightening, the dollar could extend its rise.

Downwards scenario: On the other hand, if the pair accelerates on the downside and manage to break our next support level at 94.26 (S1), it is likely to trigger our next support level at 93.82 (S2) and 93.37 (S3) later on today.

EUR - Lifted by Stronger Investor Confidence

The euro traded higher against all of the major currencies today thanks to the improvement in Eurozone and German investor sentiment. The Eurozone ZEW survey rose to 30.6 from 27.6 and while investors grew less optimistic about current conditions in Germany, their confidence in future conditions improved with the expectations component of the German ZEW rising to 38.5 from 36.4. With the European Central Bank taking additional steps to stimulate the economy, this data indicates that investors are looking for a stronger recovery. In a farewell conference for Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer today, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi talked about ECB monetary policy. He said the central bank would consider non-standard measures including the possibility of negative deposit rates. Draghi said, "We will look with an open mind at these measures that are especially effective in our institutional setup and that fall within our mandate." Yet he warned that these non-standard measures could also lead to unintentional consequences. Parts of the Eurozone have been unresponsive to monetary policy and Draghi has set to regain its steering capacity. He pointed out that the introduction of non-standard policy measures along with standard measures helped prevent the materialization of deflation risk.

Bernanke: The Fed is ready to start tapering

Following the Fed decision to hold rates and the optimistic FOMC economic projections, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke indicated that the Fed are ready to start tapering QE. Bernanke began by highlighting the optimistic growth forecasts for 2013 and 2014, making reference to the hotly anticipated exit strategy, commenting, on “setting fed funds target over medium term and continuing purchases of MBS”. Further, he added that an improvement in the unemployment rate to 6.5% should not be considered to be a trigger for an immediate rate hike. He added that he is personally expecting this to occur during 2015.

EU Fin Min struck deal on bank bailouts

Eurozone ministers struck a deal over the origin of funds for bank bailouts from now on. While the local government will contribute 20% of the new capital, the ESM (European Stability Mechanism) bailout fund will become the major contributor with an 80%, according to an official cited by Reuters. Moreover, EU finance ministers made an agreement for the ESM to be used as an investment vehicle for banks under stress, with each being assessed individually to become eligible to the aid, Reuters reported. With regards to Cyprus, EU Finance Ministers were clear that Cyprus must live up to its word by fulfilling its financial obligations. Furthermore, President of the Eurogroup Dijsselbloem was quoted on a headline saying "Implementation of agreed Cypriot baliout program is indispensible", noting that implementation is key for the Bank of Cyrus, also adding that there is likely to be a limit of 60bn euro on direct bank recap fund, although this can be reviewed.

The EUR/USD suffered more losses today, declining another 75 pips and closing at 1.3218. However, it should be noted the pair did trade as low as 1.3160 at one point, but was able to recover a decent portion of its losses before the end of the day. Analysts were discussing the release of the most recent EU PMI figures, which hit the tape during the previous European session.

Will Fed Speeches Halt the Dollar Rally?

Based on the sell-off in global equities and rise in bond yields around the world, deleveraging in the financial markets intensified. However in the forex market, the U.S. dollar appears to have stabilized. Early losses for many major currencies against the dollar were recovered by the end of the day. In fact, the AUD/USD even ended the North American trading session in positive territory. Does this mean that the dollar rally has peaked? No. There were no fundamental drivers behind the reversal in the greenback outside of exhaustion. U.S. stocks continued to decline, extending losses that began at the end of May. While the S&P 500 is still up more than 11% year to date, it lost 6% of its value since setting a record high of 1,669.16 on May 21st. With 1,500 in sight more losses are likely for the S&P 500 and additional weakness in equities is a reflection of risk aversion, which could lead to further strength for the greenback.

Pause Before Another Big Move?

Based on the price action over the past 48 hours in the forex market, volatility has declined as traders and investors wait for a fresh catalyst to drive the dollar higher. Better than expected U.S. economic data helped the greenback hold onto its gains against most of the major currencies but after such an extensive rally, the market is waiting for some confirmation that the Federal Reserve is on track to taper this year and won't do too much damage on the U.S. economy. The latest economic reports suggests that the economy may be able handle less stimulus but that is far from certain. As we said on Monday, the key is whether the other FOMC members are onboard with the idea. Right now, currency traders are in wait and see mode as they look forward to the next big catalyst - which could come from the speeches by Fed officials.

EU FinMin reach deal on bank resolution rules

EU Finance Ministers reached, at the second attempt, an agreement on the new policy to manage restructuring and liquidation of banks. The deal is part of efforts to establish a banking union, which has as ultimate objective to break the link between bank debt and sovereign debt. The EcoFin meeting, celebrated ahead of Thursday's EU Summit, agreed what types of creditors must take losses in future banking crises, according to diplomatic sources. The draft document ensures that depositors with savings under €100,000 will be protected from any loss. The agreement has to be now ratified by the heads of state and government at the summit.

German unemployment and Eurozone confidence numbers are also scheduled for release today and the outcome of these reports will impact the market's expectations for ECB policy and in turn the euro. If the data is good, then the central bank's threat to increase stimulus will fall on deaf ears. Just this morning ECB President Draghi reminded everyone that the central bank stands ready to act if necessary. Unfortunately based on the latest PMI numbers, labor market conditions most likely deteriorated in the month of June and if the data is weak, confirming that ECB policy will trail far behind the Fed, the euro could find itself trading closer to 1.29. In terms of confidence, it will be tough call since there has been both strength and weakness in the latest IFO and ZEW surveys. These numbers shouldn't be as important as German unemployment.

Should the Dollar be Worried about Fed Comments?

Fed Presidents Dudley, Powell and Lockhart spoke yesterday and with the first 2 being voting members of the FOMC this year, its no surprise that their comments triggered intraday volatility in the dollar. All 3 Fed Presidents said that it may be appropriate for the central bank to taper asset purchases in 2013 and end QE buying in mid-2014 but the markets chose to hone in on Dudley's comment that QE depends on the economic outlook and not the calendar and could be prolonged if the economy misses their forecasts. There's no question that the recent rise in U.S. yields has irritated central bankers but the fact Dudley still repeated Bernanke's timing after qualifying the conditions for QE means that this uber dove is most likely onboard with the idea of reducing asset purchases. Fed President Powell's stance was similar - while he sees the central bank scaling back purchases this year, he said it is data and not date dependent. Both Dudley and Lockhart didn't see Bernanke's press conference last week as a strong signal of Fed policy or a major shift but rather a "soft notion" of when QE could end.

China top banking regulator says enough liquidity

The Chinese top banking regulatory body appeased fears over the credit crunch in the country, saying that liquidity remains ample for the interbank needs. Regulators reassured the markets by pledging to tighten risk controls over local government, real estate and shadow banking. The chairman of the China Banking Regulatory Commission, Mr. Shang, said "excess reserves more than double amount necessary", although Shanga failed to provide further details on how they intend to reduce shadow banking practices.

AUD/USD hits lowest at 0.9158 as RBA retains dovish tone

AUD/USD has been extending its decline post the RBA rate decision, as traders disccount further rate cuts by the central bank going forward. Amid expectations that the rate would be on hold, all the focus was on the wording used by the RBA. Unfortunately for the anxious bulls, there was no surprise on the dovish tone either, with the RBA repeating the old line "the inflation outlook, as currently assessed, may provide some scope for further easing, should that be required to support demand." What is worse, the RBA stated "The Australian dollar has depreciated by around 10 per cent since early April, although it remains at a high level", which was a hint that despite the dramatic fall, the currency is still not low enough, thus market is now pricing the fact that a lower AUD may not be an impediment to reduce rates further should that be necessary.

The lowest level so far has been 0.9156, an area that converges with the sequence of lows seen on July 1 and June 24 on the hourly chart. The level is also the 61.8% fib retrac from the 0.9110 to 0.9250 relief rally. It appears as though some bids are emerging now from lows, with the rate up at 0.9170. On the upside, some offers may be clustered at 0.9175 - lows through last US session - ahead of 0.92 round number and 0.9250 - twin top today.

U.S. Dollar Faces its First Test

With 2 more days to go before the pivotal U.S. non-farm payrolls report, the dollar extended its gains against all of the major currencies. Milestones were reached in some pairs while others broke key levels. The sustainability of the dollar's rally has been nothing short of impressive but it should not surprise investors since the strongest moves in the FX market are the ones supported by fundamental drivers. In this case the Federal Reserve is getting ready to reduce the amount of stimulus that it provides to the economy and investors are just looking for economic data to confirm that the economy is ready for tapering. The dollar faces its first test today with a number of U.S. economic reports on the calendar that will help shape expectations for Friday's release. The day starts off with a layoff report from Challenger Grey & Christmas that will be followed by the ADP Employment Change, jobless claims and most importantly, the ISM non-manufacturing index. Earlier this week we learned that the manufacturing sector lost jobs for the first time since 2009 and now the question is whether the service sector suffered the same fate. We don't think that it did because otherwise the Fed would not have lowered its unemployment rate forecasts but there's always the risk the data could surprise to the downside. Layoffs are expected to decline and most likely ADP will report an increase in U.S. payrolls.

EUR - Beware of the ECB

Since the last ECB meeting, we have seen more improvements than deterioration in the Eurozone economy. In Germany specifically, consumer spending has been healthy, unemployment rolls have declined, leading to an improvement in business and investor confidence. However the strength was not without areas of weakness. Businesses and investors grew more optimistic about future economic activity but more grim about current activity. Considering that the current performance of the economy is what really matters, the ECB may look beyond everyone's hope for improvement. Also stronger service sector activity in the region's largest economy was offset by a deeper contraction in manufacturing. So as you can see the recovery in the Eurozone is uneven and when combined with a 5% sell-off in the DAX, since the last meeting the ECB has very little to be optimistic about.

Weakening below this mark might clear the way towards to immediate supports at 1.2965 (S2) and 1.2945 (S3). ECB interest rate announcement is a key factor today.

EUR and GBP Crushed by ECB and BoE

Big moves are happening in the FX market yesterday. The euro and British pound dropped to 5 week lows against the U.S. dollar, taking out key levels in the process. The absence of U.S. traders most likely compounded the volatility in currencies. The European Central Bank and the Bank of England left monetary policy unchanged but Mario Draghi and Mark Carney made it clear that both central banks have a bias to ease. The dovish comments from European central bankers were motivated by the recent volatility in interest rates and a desire to set themselves apart from the Federal Reserve who is on a path to reduce stimulus. The ECB and the BoE wants everyone to know that they are still prepared to increase stimulus if the volatility in the bond markets persist or their economies weaken. In the Eurozone in particular, the EUR/USD dropped through 1.30 and 1.29. The currency started to fall as soon as Draghi said that policy will remains accommodative as long as needed, there are downside risks to their economic outlook and rates will stay low for an extended period of time. The sell-off gained momentum when the central bank took the unprecedented step of forward guidance. The ECB said there is no exit in sight, they are keeping rates low for an extended period of time, their decision will be data dependent and they are keeping an open mind on negative deposit rates. Draghi also reminded everyone that the central bank is "technically ready" for negative rates. They had an extensive discussion about the possibility of a rate cut and unanimously decided that the guidance was needed which included saying that 50bp is not the lower bound. The central bank is screaming their bias to ease from the top of the mountain - they don't want to leave any room for ambiguity because the risk could be a further rise in yields. Having dropped below 1.29, the next support for the EUR/USD should be at 1.28.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: The possibility of an upside price progress is seen above the resistance level at 1.2931 (R1). Evaluation above this mark might initiate bullish pressure and expose medium-term interim targets at 1.2952 (R2) and 1.2974 (R3). Downwards scenario: We placed our support level right above the yesterday low at 1.2881 (S1). Clearance here is required to open way towards to our interim target at 1.2862 (S2) and then final aim locates at 1.2842 (S3).

ECB members had heated clash over last rate decision

ECB Governing Council members had a confrontational approach over interest rates at their latest board meeting on Thursday, according to German weekly Der Spiegel, citing no sources, the MNI newswire reports. Der Spiegel claims to have obtained insights over the dovish views from ECB chief economist Peter Praet, who proposed to cut the benchmark interest rate by 25 bp in the last meeting, an action that ECB President Mario Draghi would have supported.

However, as MNI reports, "seven board members, mainly from northern European member states, were arguing sharply against a rate cut last week, the magazine reported." Der Spiegel reports German Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann, Dutch central bank governor Klaas Knot as well as ECB Executive Board member Joerg Asmussen, as the most notoriously opposed to it. As is well known, the final decision taken by the board was to unanimously keep the benchmark rate unchanged at 0.5% while providing forward guidance on low rates. Draghi's said that "broad-based weakness in the real economy and subdued monetary dynamics" will keep rates at present or lower levels for an extended period of time.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Market players may prefer to stay neutral today during limited tier one macroeconomic data flow, though a break of our resistance at 1.2852 (R1) would suggest next targets at 1.2879 (R2) and 1.2905 (R3). Downwards scenario: Friday low offers a key support barrier at 1.2805 (S1). Only clear break here would be a signal of possible market easing towards to next targets at 1.2781 (S2) and 1.2757 (S3) in potential.

Troika approves next disbursment to Greece

Troika officials struck a deal with Greece this Monday, allowing the debt-laden country to receive its next tranche of funds, totalling The money, totaling 6.8bn euros ($8.7bn). The troika of the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will be responsible to make the funds available end of the month. Eurozone finance ministers indicated earlier today that 2.5bn euros would come from the eurozone rescue fund and 1.5bn euros, while the European Central Bank will contribute with another 1.5bn euros. It is thought that an additional 500m euros from both the EZ rescue fund and the ECB will be transferred in October. The IMF will add the remaining 1.8bn euros.

The loans are subject to Greece showing a committal approach towards the country's fiscal path, with the Troika demanding further cuts and a faster implementation of its reform programme, one that has brought the country to its knees. Despite so, the Troika continues to underline the slow progress seen so far, as the country continues to struggle through an era of depression.

S&P downgrades Italy to BBB, outlook negative

Ratings Agency Standard & Poor's decided to downgrade Italy on Tuesday, cutting the rating to BBB from BBB+. According to S&P, this action reflects their view of the effects of further weakening growth on Italy's economic structure and resilience, and its impaired monetary transmission mechanism. S&P also left their outlook at negative, meaning there is at least one-in-three chance that the rating could be lowered again in 2013 or 2014.

The highlights today will be the FOMC Minutes and Bernanke’s Speech and until then I don’t see an awful lot to move things around. The 4 hour charts are showing some minor bullish divergence and we could see the odd bounce but the dailies continue to point lower and I suspect that the low 1.2700 area will soon be tested. In the meantime leave room for bounces as the 4 hour charts unwind. We will be adding to our shorts if we see a bounce into the 1.2850/1.2900 in the coming session.

Downwards scenario: Any downside fluctuations remains for now limited to the next support level at 1.2754 (S1), only clear break here would be a signal of possible market easing towards to next targets at 1.2727 (S2) and 1.2699 (S3) in potential.

ECB Monthly Report: Interest rates could be reduced further

The ECB signalized in its July Monthly Report that interest rates could be reduced further, should the price stability outlook warrant it. The recently introduced forward guidance was also included: “The Governing Council expects the key ECB interest rates to remain at present or lower levels for an extended period of time.” There was also some clarification of its time horizon: “The extended period of time over which the Governing Council currently expects the key ECB interest rates to remain at present or lower levels is a flexible horizon which does not pre-specify an end-date but is conditional on the Governing Council’s assessment of the economic fundamentals that determine underlying inflation."

Furthermore, the Council pointed to recent improvements in Eurozone sentiment indicators which suggest a gradual recovery of the economy later this year and in 2014. To support it, the ECB is prepared to maintain the accomodative monetary policy for as long as necessary. The accomodative policy should prop up domestic demand while the recovery in global demand should boost export growth in the area. Additionally, the Governing Council suggested that “the overall improvements in financial markets seen since last summer should work their way through to the real economy, as should the progress made in fiscal consolidation.”

Dovish ECB, soft US retail sales balance each other out. Waiting on Bernanke – again!

Dovish talk from the ECB undermined the Euro before the softer than expected US Retail Sales turned things around, sending the US dollar slightly lower. Markets are likely to be on hold ahead of Bernanke’s testimony to Congress although equities and commodities both looks solid in the short term. A mix of data out of the EU and the US could make it a bit choppy later in the day. Before then, the RBA Minutes will be Asia’s focus.

The Euro has had a choppy but mostly uninteresting session, hanging close to 1.3000 as the northern hemisphere summer doldrums look to be well upon us. Early dovish comments from the ECB’s Hansson, indicating that there is room to cut rates further and that negative interest rates should not be ruled out helped push the Euro lower early in the session, before a bit of a turnaround following the softer than expected US retail Sales, that saw the dollar come under some pressure of its own. Fitch downgraded the EFSF – European Financial Stability Facility- to AA+ from AAA, which, following on from the recent France downgrade, had precisely no effect on the Euro at all.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Next barrier on the upside lie at 1.3092 (R1). Surpassing of this level might enable our initial target at 1.3132 (R2) and any further gains would then be limited to last resistive structure at 1.3171 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, clearance of our support at 1.3049 (S1) is required to determine negative intraday bias and enable lower target at 1.3010 (S2) and then any further market depreciation would suggest final support at 1.2969 (S3).

Downwards scenario: Possible downside expansion is protected by support level at 1.5086 (S1), break here would put bullish oriented traders on hold.

Downwards scenario: On the downside our attention is shifted to the immediate support level at 99.62 (S1).

Bernanke: Too early to say when tapering will start

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified before the Congress for a second day on Thursday. While the introductory statement remained unchanged, investors didn't get new insights from the Q&A session before the Senate Banking Committee. When asked about the time the Fed will scale back its monthly bond-buying programme, he said "it's way too early to make any judgment" as the Fed wants to see sustainable improvement in labor markets. Bernanke also said he has broad support for his policy outlook through the Fed leadership. "We've not changed policy. We are not talking about tightening monetary policy", Bernanke said. He added that none of what the Fed has communicated about winding down its bond purchases implies tighter policy in the foreseeable future. Among other remarks, Bernanke said he doesn't see risks to financial stability from student debt, though he said it could have negative economic consequences in the long-term. "It is not particularly likely to cause any sharp instability of the sort we saw in the last few years", Bernanke said Thursday.
