USD extends the down move further

The Buck has been in a slight downtrend yesterday. Apart from the wages data, which showed that the wages grew more than the expectations and the productivity, which slightly missed the expectations there wasn´t any other event to spark the USD selling. So, this downtrend is entirely attributed to the market sentiment and positioning of the forex traders after last week´s great US employment report.


EUR/USD has erased all the losses from Friday

Whatever the reason, the move down has extended further this morning and EUR/USD has erased all of Friday´s losses. GBP/USD is up more than 130 pips from the lows yesterday. I thought that at least this forex pair would keep its downtrend intact since  the fundamentals in the UK are really horribly right now. But, that wasn´t meant to be and our sell forex signal that we opened yesterday evening is history now. We still think that selling EUR/USD is a good opportunity right now, so we´re taking a short up here around 1.1140s.
