EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 19, 2018

The euro major pair stays higher than the mid-level of 1.13 during the Asian session today. Early morning the price grew by 100 pips from Friday last week low of 1.1270 and rebounded from a two-week low and continues to move forward on Tuesday, despite the not-so-good data on German Ifo business climates in December due to broad-based USD sell-off momentum. Meanwhile, Italy has reached an agreement with the European Union regarding the controversial issue on the budget which supported the positive drive for the euro bulls but was not able to induce a bullish breakout.

The dollar sell-off was from the retracement from 1.5 years last Friday that further worsened by the concerns of the slow rate from the Federal Reserve or put on hold with the sharp drop of the dollar index reaching one week low yesterday. The Bearish pressure grew higher after the intervention of the US president on the Fed’s monetary policy that influenced further the weaker sentiment. The pair grew to 1.1400, gaining 40 pips over one week but soon began its decline from highs and settled to 40 pips from a daily swing high. The pair was able to hold range-bound trading in the upper half of 1.13 across the Asian market. On the headlines, traders will give their attention to the anticipated US FOMC interest rates decision while the US Fed is presumed to raise their rates by 25 bps, which was the fourth rate hike this year and look forward to the increase in 2019 on a “dot-plot” which will determine the short to medium term sentiment on greenback and possible give a new direction for the major currency.
