EUR/USD Daily Analysis: May 16, 2019 The euro major pair continues to be subdued during the Thursday session as it stays close to 1.1210 despite the Eurogroup meeting on the eve. It shows that the pair seems to have no direction prior to the ECB official speech. The pair shows a good rally from 1.1183 to 1.1225 previously. The uptrend occurred when Trump announced the possibility of a delay the import tariffs on autos for six months. This supports the European automobile industry and raises the pair. The reports imply that the US president is hesitant to further move on trade disputes. Trump already had a hard time with the US-China trade war and prefers to avoid any simultaneous trade obstacles with other partners. Hence, a strong trade dispute between the EU and the US seems to cool off at least on the short-term. Although, the EUR/USD pair cannot have large movement despite increasing Italy-German bond yields. Yesterday, yields rose by 140 bp, which was the highest figure since December. The rise in bond yields happened in the background of Italian Deputy PM rhetorics, saying that the peak should be adjusted to 140% of GDP. Meanwhile, the retail sales figures cause the dropped of the dollar gains yesterday and the US dollar index trades close to 97.5. Following data are to be released today in the US: Housing in April (MoM), Building Permits, Initial Jobless Claims from period May 10 and Continuing Jobless Claims from May 3. In the technical perspective, the price shows to be trading below the 50- and 100-SMA, indicating a bearish trend for the day. The top resistance remains at 1.1263 and the support close to 1.1178. Of the pair rises in the future, the next target resistance will likely be around 1.1323. The pair being above the Bollinger band may mean an increase and could develop into a bullish trend from the traders. The RSI was found close to the 55th figure, which confirms active purchases of the pair.
