Daily Price Outlook

The EUR/USD currency pair managed to regain strength and turned bullish around the 1.0865 level. However, the upticks in the pair can be attributed to the bearish US dollar, which lost momentum due to downbeat US data and a dovish stance by the Federal Reserve. Furthermore, the reduced bets for more aggressive policy easing by the ECB might continue to underpin the shared currency and help limit any corrective decline for the EUR/USD pair. Moving on, traders seem hesitant to place strong positions as they will take cues from the US macro data – the ADP report on private-sector employment and JOLTS Job Openings data. The focus will then shift to the European Central Bank (ECB) meeting on Thursday and the key US monthly employment details, popularly known as the Nonfarm Payrolls (NFP) report on Friday.

Euro Strengthens as Expectations for Aggressive ECB Stimulus Diminish

On the Euro front, the European Central Bank might not act aggressively to boost the economy, which could make the euro stronger. If they show caution about inflation and don't want to lower interest rates more, investors might see it as good for the euro. So, the EUR/USD pair could go up.

US Dollar Faces Bearish Pressure Amid Weak Economic Data and Dovish Fed Comments

On the US front, the US Dollar was under pressure due to weak economic data and cautious remarks from the Federal Reserve. However, the services sector grew slower in February, with fewer jobs. Factory orders fell by 3.6% in January, signaling lower demand for goods. The ISM Services PMI dropped below expectations to 52.6. This could lead to the EUR/USD pair going up as the Dollar weakens in response to poor data and Fed caution, potentially strengthening the British Pound against the US Dollar.

GBP/USD - Technical Analysis

On March 6, the EUR/USD pair slightly decreased by 0.05%, trading at 1.08514. This minor dip provides a critical opportunity to assess the currency pair's technical stance and potential future direction. Positioned near vital technical markers, the EUR/USD's movements suggest an environment ripe for strategic trading decisions.

The pivot point at 1.08347 acts as a foundational marker for the pair, with immediate resistance located at 1.08708. Further resistance levels are identified at 1.09054 and 1.09415, marking potential ceilings that the pair may encounter in an upward journey. On the flip side, support levels at 1.08031, 1.07625, and 1.07310 provide a safety net against downward movements, indicating areas where buying pressure could intensify.

Technical indicators shed light on the pair's current dynamics. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) at 54 points towards a neutral to slightly bullish sentiment, hinting at some room for upside without straying into overbought territory. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) with a value of 0.000010 and a signal line at 0.000600 offers a cautious signal; the narrow gap suggests potential for upward momentum but warrants close observation for any shifts. Interestingly, the 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at 1.2693 seems misaligned with the current price, likely indicating a clerical error in the provided data.

Considering these factors, the EUR/USD presents a cautiously optimistic outlook, with the advised trading strategy being a buy stop at 1.08713. Setting a take profit at 1.0903 and a stop loss at 1.0841 allows traders to navigate the expected upward movement while managing risks effectively.
