EURUSD outlook remains downbeat

FX:EURUSD   Euro / U.S. Dollar
EURUSD gains for a second day in a row on Friday but stays in the negative territory in the weekly charts. One week ago, the pair was rejected from the levels above 1.11 which remains the key to the upside, with the intermediate resistance comes around 1.1075.

Despite the current recovery attempts, the short-term and broader outlook for the euro remains downbeat. First, the Fed was not as dovish as expected, which reduces the possibility of another rate cut till the end of the year. Second, German economy is on the verge of a recession, and fresh data confirm these fears. In particular, producer prices contracted 0.5% month on month in August and rose 0.3% from a year earlier, with both figures came in lower than expected. Third, the potential US tariffs on imports of EU cars remain on the table, which is also a downside risk for the common currency.

As such, the pair may well get back below 1.10 should the sentiment deteriorate. In the near term, euro could also struggle as Fed’s Rosengren who voted against a rate cut on Wednesday delivers a speech later today. Only a firm break above 1.11 will ease the broader selling pressure on the common currency.
