Technical analysis for EURUSD 26th December – 30th December
In the last week, the US dollar index dropped from 14 years high in the market. The U.S dollar index is the measure of the overall strength of the green bucks in a basket against six major currency pairs in the world. The EURO start with a nice decent bullish momentum in the last week after breaking the 13 years low in the market. The green bucks have gained immense strength in the global market after the FED hike their interest rate on the basis of 25 points. Most importantly the FED has declared that they are most likely to go three rate hikes in the next year and if they manage to go for at least two rate hike before the month of November then the EURUSD pair will create a historic low in the market. However, traders are thinking that the current strength of the U.S dollar is fading away in the market as the U.S dollar index slipped from its 14 years high in the market.
The next trading week is going to be very quiet since most of the traders are celebrating their Christmas holiday and already booked their profit in the market. There is no major news for the Euro neither for the green bucks. Since the last week ended with a bullish tone in the EURUSD pair traders are expecting some decent bullish correction in the upcoming week. However, most of the leading investors are thinking that the green bucks will lose its strength in the very beginning of the year 2017 and this might create some fresh buying pressure in the EURUSD pair. But if things go in a positive manner for the green bucks the Euro will slip lower against the green bucks in the forex market. On the contrary, a slight weak data will significantly push this pair higher in the market since previously the pair had very hard times trading in such a low level.
