Employment Flat and New Orders down are not what the market wanted. The effect on the market has so far been limited. The EURUSD – which does not really know how to react on strong/weak US data – has kept the recent intraday bias and approaches the days midpoint at the 1.2881.

January 12′ vs. December 11′

The EURUSD fell below trendline and then the 38.2% retracement as it moved to the 100 bar and 50% retracement of the days range. The range remains narrow for the pair. The market is subject to headline news from Greece. This keeps the market on edge. The Philadelphia Fed Index is due out at 10 AM. Expectations are for a rise to 10.3 from 6.8 last month.

The much better than expected Initial Claims (lowest since April 2008) gave the dollar a boost, but the move down seems to have stalled. The EURUSD is up around .44% today – just behind the strength of the CHF. Optimism that a Greek bond restructuring and a better Spanish bond auction are the reasons for the uptick.
From a technical perspective, the pair broke above the daily channel trendline in early Asian trading and has not looked back (1.2848 is the trendline today). The range is still narrow on the day at 88 pips and could see an extension. The 1.2945 level is an upside target (low from Mid December).
The shorter 5 minute charts is giving mixed signs. The price broke lower on the news but rebounded. The rebound came up short of the high and the price has rotated back down. Market action is more balanced. You have to respect the upside bias but take the need to take out the 1.2925 will be needed to keep the buyers content. On the downside the 1.2892 is the break point on the downside today. A move below this level should lead to further selling potential for the pair.

Spain and France had very solid results and participation during today’s bond auctions.
