Week Ahead April 17th – 21st
EUR/USD TEMELLER VE TEKNİK
Pair closed last week’s trading session higher on worse than expected US economic releases and on hawkish ECB’s officials comments. The softer than expected US CPI weighed negative on FED future rate hike expectations. On the other side two members of the ECB highlighted that 0.25% -0.5% rate hike will take place in May’s meeting. All the above mentioned have boosted pair higher and retested levels seen ten months ago. By the end of the week we have seen traders and investors taking profits out of their long positions and in combination with the better than expected US Michigan consumer sentiment brought the pair down to its break out level.
As for this week, Traders and investors, will mainly focus on the speech from ECB’s Christine Lagarde. The speech could confirm last week’s comments and reinforce rate hike expectation, something that will add traction to the pair. In the rest of the week traders and investors will continue trade the economic releases unless something unexpected happens.

GBP/USD TEMELLER VE TEKNİK
Pair closed last week’s trading session unchanged on disappointing economic releases from both sides. The US CPI erased any expectations for another rate hike. The worse than expected US economic releases have added downside pressure on the US Dollar and the pair benefits from a new rally on higher levels of the year. Although the rally halted by the end of the week and the pair retreated back to last week’s level as traders have taken some profits out of the table after the US Michigan consumer confidence came out better than expectations.
As for this week, traders and investors will focus on the speeches form BOE’s officials. The heavy UK economic calendar will defy the pairs next direction. The main catalyst for GBP will be the CPI number due to be released on Wednesday. A softer than expected number will bring the pair sharp on the downside as it will add pressure on BOE to stop hiking rates.
On the economic calendar we have on Tuesday the UK Claimant count with expectation that more than 11.8K people have enter the unemployment benefit. On Wednesday, UK consumer Price index expected lower at 10% retail price index lower at 9.8% On Friday, Gfk consumer confidence lower at -37, retail sales lower at -4.5% and Services PMI to remain unchanged at 52.9
