EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: October 22, 2018

The euro major pair bounced up after a decline as it moved towards the support level of 1.1531and closed higher on Friday. However, there is a tendency for the pair to face risk and move higher in short-term. A bullish sentiment was established in the outside-day around the level of 1.1432 on Friday, indicating the pullback has stopped from the October 16 high at 1.1622. The European Union tries to lessen the deficit on budget expansion proposal and further strengthen the common currency on Friday. The European Economic Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici said tension can be lessened through constructive conversations after the recent warning letter on criticizing fiscal plans of Italy.

The pair was able to find some sufficient support near the monthly lows at the area of 1.1435-30 and rose for almost 100 pips as a major part of weekly losses. The currency was further strengthened because of the dollar but lost some momentum after the rhetorics of Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic. On the other hand, the market received the news on Italy with its stable outlook that puts a limit on any sudden decline.

There is not much fundamental news that could affect trading while investors look for news that could affect the currency rates amid Italy policy concerns and Brexit updates. Moody’s decision was less-than-expected of investors. Thus, a relief rally on Italian markets may take place today. In case the spread between the 10-year Italy and German yields lessened by 300 bps, this could push the euro major pair higher and break through the level of 1.1535. The resistance levels of the pair would be 1.1535, 1.1575 and 1.1600 and the support levels would be at 1.1463, 1.1432, and 1.1400.
