Posted by FXTimes in Daily - June 15th, 2016 2:25 pm GMT

euro EURUSD

Key Points

  • The Euro declined vs the Japanese yen recently, and losses may continue in the near term.
  • There is a major bearish trend line formed on the hourly chart of EURJPY, which acted as a barrier for the pair and pushed it down.
  • In the Euro Area, the Trade Balance released by the Eurostat posted a trade surplus of €28.0B in April 2016, more than the market expected.
  • In France, the Consumer Price Index released by INSEE posted an increase of 0.1% in May 2016, which was more than the forecast of 0%.

Technical Analysis

The Euro after trading as low as 118.51 against the Japanese yen started to move higher. However, the upside move was stalled around a major bearish trend line formed on the hourly chart of EURJPY.

EURJPY

The 50 hourly simple moving average also acted as a resistance and ignited a downside move. It looks like the EURJPY pair may continue to move down and test the last swing low of 118.51.

Any further downsides might call for a new weekly low of around 118.00 in the near term.

Euro Area Trade Balance

Today in the Euro Area, the Trade Balance, which is a balance between exports and imports of total goods and services was released by the Eurostat. The market was expecting a trade surplus of €21.6B in April 2016, but the result was better, as the surplus was €28.0B.

The report stated that the “first estimate for euro area (EA19) exports of goods to the rest of the world in April 2016 was €172.3 billion, a decrease of 1% compared with April 2015 (€173.9 bn). Imports from the rest of the world stood at €144.8 bn, a fall of 5% compared with April 2015 (€153.0 bn).”

The Euro traded higher after the report was released, but found sellers near the highlighted trend line and resistance area.
