Valeria Bednarik, FXstreet.com collaborator, comments about the market changing perspective: Closing another week in market, this time with a slightly change been felt across the board; despite gold keeps strong and hit a fresh yearly historical high at $ 1060.50/oz, optimism has lost steam; EUR/USD failed to regain the 1.4800 level, thus bias remain slightly bullish at current point. One could have expect an approach to 1.50 area with such a strong movement in gold, compared to past weeks correlation with dollar and the commodity; however, we did not see a fresh yearly high in the pair.
The FastBrokers Research Team expects: The Euro's near-term performance ultimately depends on upcoming Q3 earnings results and next week's econ data from both the EU and U.S. Investors need to see fundamental economic improvements in the EU and encouraging U.S. earnings before committing to a movement towards 1.50 and higher. Additionally, unexpected central bank comments could always jolt the FX markets psychologically. The first big econ release from the EU next week will be Tuesday's German ZEW Economic Sentiment data. Trading should be light on Monday since the U.S. will be off on a banking holiday.
