New York Forex Report: Risk Sentiment Improved On Better China Data

EURUSD
Outlook: Short Term (1-3 Days): Bearish – Medium Term (1-3 Weeks): Bearish

Fundamental:  Month end flows have faded and the strong ADP data state side is weighing on the single currency alongside improved risk appetite on the back of better China data yesterday. EURUSD recovered from its European session low of 1.1130 as trading remains mostly range-bound ahead of tomorrow’s NFP release.  US ISM Manufacturing is the key data for the session at 1500GMT1 expected 50.6 vs 51.1 previous. A miss on today’s data could spur USD weakness as investors begin to reduce expectations of a 2015 rate hike.

Technical: Sustained breach of 1.12 sets up a retest of bids below the 1.11 handle. Intraday support sited at 1.1130 failure here sees 1.11 back in bears sites with stops below to be revisited

Interbank Flows: Bids 1.1150/30- 1.1080/60 stops below. Offers 1.12 -1.1250 Stops above.
Retail Sentiment: Long to neutral
Trading Take-away: Sidelines for now

GBPUSD
Outlook: Short Term (1-3 Days): Bearish – Medium Term (1-3 Weeks): Bearish

Fundamental: A small beat on UK PMI Manufacturing data this month ( 51.5 vs 51.3 expected) saw Sterling better bid over European trading.

US ISM Manufacturing is the key data for the session at 1500GMT1 expected 50.6 vs 51.1 previous.

Technical: Remains under pressure while capped by 1.52 resistance, next downside objective is a test of 1.50 psychological support.

Interbank Flows: Bids 1.5130/10 stops below Offers 1.5210/30 stops above
Retail Sentiment: Bullish
Trading Take-away: Sell pullbacks against 1.52 targeting 1.50.
