EUR/USD 1.4978 - 11 November 2009

EUR/USD Open 1.4999 High 1.5018 Low 1.4942 Close 1.4987

Euro/Dollar traded hesitantly on Tuesday. On the 3 hour chart the unconvincing break of the 1.4655 support led quotes upwards even over the Bollinger band, indicating a potential bullish scenario with near term targets towards 1.5140, followed by 1.5265.Immediate support is represented by yesterday's bottom at 1.4940. Break under it is likely to jeopardize the up trend, but the longer the couple remain above it, our preferable scenario would be ascending. From the fundamental point of view, after worse than expected NFP and unemployment rates on Friday, the reluctance to risk was not sufficient to reduce the optimism about economic recovery and the Dollar failed to gain significant momentum. It doesn't mean a thing for me, but investors strongly believe that recovery is on track and maybe willing to buy riskier assets and high yield currencies, which should continue pressuring the Dollar. The CCI indicator is neutral on the 1 hour chart, suggesting calm market.
