Forex Flash: EUR/USD, break of trendline sees scope for 1-2 cent decline - BBH

From a technical point of view, according to Mark Chandler, Global Head of Currency Strategy at BBH, "it appears additional near-term losses in EUR/USD are likely."

Marc adds: "The 5-day moving average has crossed below the 20-day moving average. The similar trendline that the Dollar Index closed above comes in near $1.3280 in the euro and rises to $1.3320 by the end of the week. A convincing violation suggests scope for addition 1-2 cent decline. On the other hand, the trend line drawn off the early Jan high is near $1.3440 on Monday and falls toward $1.3350 by the end of the week. A move above this trend line will help stabilize the technical tone."

The bank suspects "this means the yen is free to weaken, but Japanese officials must refrain from being seen to be goading the yen to weaker levels."
