Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) central bankers from around the world are discussing monetary policy, will have a massive effect on where things go next
The Euro went back and forth during trading on Thursday as we continue to see a lot of noise just below the 1.11 handle. That being the case it looks as if the market is still going to struggle to find its direction in the short term. As the Jackson Hole Symposium is getting underway in Wyoming, central bankers from around the world are discussing monetary policy, which of course will have a massive effect on where things go next.
All things being equal I do think that we go lower though, because quite frankly the Euro has a ton of trouble attached to it. At the very least we have low demand for negative yielding bonds coming out of Germany. The interest rate differential alone drives the US dollar higher as so many bonds out there are issuing negative yield that Treasuries look rather good. That of course drives up demand for the US dollar, so it’s a bit of a feedback cycle.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 1.12.
The projected upper bound is: 1.12.
The projected lower bound is: 1.10.
The projected closing price is: 1.11.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 26.5307. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 1 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 38.22. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 266 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -82. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 15 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 5 period(s) ago.
