Pound-Euro Exchange Rate Week Ahead Forecast: Back from Brink, but Overtaken by GBP/USD


The Pound-to-Euro exchange rate could be lifted by a dissipation of domestic political risks this week but gains may be slower to materialise than in the past, leading GBP/USD to outperform GBP/EUR during the weeks ahead in the absence of…

Effective Exchange Rates

Euro Exchange Rate: EURGBP and EURUSD Weakness Forecast to Remain Intact

euro rate today

Euro rates have today fallen bringing a potential close to the consolidative phase seen following the release of Eurozone inflation data.

  • "Further EGB purchase details from the ECB; continued stabilisation in euro area activity shouldn’t disturb EURUSD downtrend." - Barclays.
  • “Another failure ahead of 1.100 might still delay resumption of broad EUR negative trends." - Lucy Lillicrap at AFEX.

While we have seen relief buying of the euro at start of the new trading month, the outlook remains resolutely negative in the long-term timeframes.

Studies contained in this report give readers an idea of the levels that could be achieved by the British pound and US dollar against the euro in coming days and weeks.

Where is the EUR Now?

On Wednesday we note gains made at the start of the week are being given away. For reference, the euro to pound sterling exchange rate (EURGBP) is at 0.7245 - 0.35% down on the previous day's closing level.

The euro to dollar exchange rate (EURUSD) is 0.43 pct lower at 1.1128.

Deflation Props up Single Currency at Start of March

Eurozone inflation rebounded in February with the annual cost of living standing at -0.3%, up from -0.6% in January, the EU statistics agency Eurostat said in preliminary data.

Markets had expected a reading of -0.5%; the positive surprise got the shared currency off to a strong start.

Any upside surprises in Eurozone data will have notable impacts on the EUR owing to the massive amount of negative bets currently placed against the currency.

Contrast this to the pound sterling which hardly moved in response to March’s positive Manufacturing data. It will take blow-out positive data surprises to shift the GBP precisely because the market is so massively aligned behind the currency.

Dennis de Jong, managing director at UFX.com, comments on the EU deflation numbers:

“Mario Draghi would have had his fingers crossed before the consumer price index figures were released this morning, and though the results were better than expected, the outlook for Europe is still precarious.

“At least Draghi isn’t alone in fighting deflation. Of the 28 countries in the EU, 23 are officially in deflation and the UK looks likely to make it 24 in a few weeks’ time. Having already embarked on a massive bond buying programme, and with interest rates already at historic lows in many member countries, it’s difficult to see how Draghi and Co. will be able to escape deflation anytime soon.” 

Forecasting the Downtrend to Continue

Looking through the data, what can we expect from the euro exchange rate complex?

Barclays tell us any strength shown by the EUR will ultimately be fleeting:

“Further EGB purchase details from the ECB; continued stabilisation in euro area activity shouldn’t disturb EURUSD downtrend

“We do not expect the ECB to make any monetary policy changes at its March meeting (Thursday), given the recently announced expansion of its asset purchase program.

“Any subsequent EUR appreciation is unlikely to be sustained, particularly given the recent re-emergence of pronounced USD strength following January’s firm US core CPI inflation reading.”

The Technical Levels That Will Determine the Outlook

Technical forecast for the euro to dollar exchange rate:

Giving us guidance on the euro dollar rate at the start of March is Lucy Lillicrap at currency brokerage AFEX:

euro to dollar outlook

“Despite U.S. Dollar weakness elsewhere in the past few weeks values here failed to recover much beyond even 1.1500 and as a result previous cycle lows at 1.1100 are coming back into focus again already.

“Another failure ahead of 1.100 might still delay resumption of broad EUR negative trends but longer term studies argue downside risk remains readable toward at least 1.0750 and on this basis any such secondary rebound would be considered unsustainable.

“Fresh resistance now starts at 1.1300 with a push back above secondary 1.1450 resistance necessary as well to infer an interim floor has been seen. Otherwise expect 1.1100 to give way in due course as 1.0950 attracts next.”

Technical forecast for the euro to pound exchange rate:

Our analysis of the EUR to GBP is provided by Luc Luyet, analyst at Swissquote Bank:

euro to pound sterling

“EUR/GBP has made new lows, confirming an underlying bearish trend. Hourly resistances can be found at 0.7298 (27/02/2015 high) and 0.7349 (24/02/2015 high).

“In the long-term, the break of the major support area between 0.7755 (23/07/2012 low) and 0.7694 (20/10/2008 low) confirms an underlying downtrend. A key support can be found at 0.7089 (03/12/2007 low). A key resistance now lies at 0.7596 (16/01/2015 low).”
