EUR/USD. February 14, 2020 – Euro remains in the lows of 2017

The euro continues to move within the downward channel near the 1.0840 mark. The sentiment in global markets remains moderately negative in the absence of new negative news on the spread of coronavirus in China.

The European currency is at the lows of 2017 under the pressure of weak macroeconomic data from Europe and a strong US dollar. The US currency received support from yesterday's inflation data in the United States, which reflected a slight acceleration in consumer prices in January (2.5% y/y versus 2.3% y/y). If today's data on retail sales and industrial production for January indicate the preservation of stable business activity in the US, the dollar will continue to grow to 1.0800.

EUR/USD. February 17, 2020 – Euro remains in the area of two-year lows

The sentiment on global sites remains moderately optimistic amid the lack of negative news on the topic of coronavirus. The growth rate of new cases of diseases decreased again after the jump caused by the use of a new method for diagnosing the virus. As a result, the EUR/USD pair is trading at 1.0840, remaining in the area of two-year lows.

Today's news background is calm, and in the week you should pay attention to the macroeconomic data block for January. PMI business activity indices in the European Union and the USA will be published on Friday. If statistics show deterioration, risky assets may again be under pressure.

Today, the pair will be trading primarily in a sideways manner near 1.0840.

EUR/USD. February 18, 2020 – Euro is under pressure after the release of data from Germany

Risky assets again came under pressure after Apple announced that it would not be able to fulfill its revenue plan in Q1 due to existing problems with shipments from China in the context of the coronavirus epidemic. An additional influence on investor sentiment was provided by reports that the US plans to limit technology exports to China to restrain Chinese technological development.

The pair EUR/USD remains in weak positions near 1.0830. In the daytime, German ZEW economic expectations and sentiment indices were published. The indicator unexpectedly dropped from 26.7 points to 8.7 points. Analysts had predicted a decline in the index only to around 21.5. Such statistics will put pressure on the euro during the day and may send the pair below 1.08.

USD/CAD. February 19, 2020 – Looney grows in anticipation of inflation data

Today, the USD/CAD pair is showing a decline after strong growth the day before. The instrument continues to move within the trading range of 1.32-1.33, reacting to the publication of macroeconomic data from the US and Canada.

Yesterday, the US dollar managed to grow to 1.3280 after the release of data on business activity in the manufacturing sector of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York: in February the index rose from 4.8 to 12.9 points. Statistics from Canada, on the contrary, reflected a decline in production sales in December by 0.7% m/m after a decline of 1% m/m last month.

However, today Canadian dollar began to grow in anticipation of data on the consumer price index of Canada, which will be published today in the evening. Experts expect annual inflation to rise to 2.3% in January against growth to 2.2% in December. If the forecast is confirmed, the likelihood that the Bank of Canada will decide to mitigate monetary policy will decrease significantly, and the Canadian dollar will receive an incentive for further growth.

EUR/USD. February 20, 2020 – Euro sideways at 1.08

The euro is moving horizontally at the level 1.0800. Market dynamics remain calm in the absence of negative news on the topic of coronavirus. The US dollar is still strong reacting to comments from the Fed on the stability of the US economy.

Thursday is not rich in significant events, the pair will continue to fluctuate slightly near the level of 1.08. Tomorrow you should pay attention to the publication of PMI indices in the EU and the US. If the indices turn out to be worse than expected, this could reduce the risk appetite on global markets at the end of the week.

EUR/USD. February 21, 2020 – Dollar continues to strengthen

Negative sentiment at global sites has been rising again due to a sharp increase in the number of coronavirus infected in South Korea. At the same time, the markets continue to trend towards the strengthening of the US dollar, which is growing in tandem with the main currency competitors.

Yesterday, the Philadelphia Fed index of business activity was published, which rose sharply to 36.7 points. Positive regional data give reason to expect an increase in the ISM business activity index for the United States as a whole, which supports the dollar.

Statistics on business activity in Europe were published today. The index of business activity in the manufacturing sector (PMI) in Germany increased from the level of 45.3 to 47.8 points. Experts predicted a decline to 44.8. The IHS Markit composite purchasing managers' index (PMI) in France also rose – to 51.9 points in February from 51.1 in January. Analysts predicted a value of 51.0 points.

However, these statistics provided the euro only temporary support – the pair managed to rise slightly above the 1.08 level, but the growth was quickly replaced by a decline. During the day, the euro will continue to fall to an area below 1.08.
