ECONOMY NEWS :

  • The U.S. watchdog for consumer finances unveiled on Thursday a proposal to toughen regulation of the multibillion-dollar debt collection industry, with a focus on keeping agencies from pushing people to pay debts they do not owe, informing borrowers of their rights and cutting down on calls to debtors.Both the industry and consumer advocates expressed disappointment with the proposal. The business side worried about the costs of complying with the suggested requirements, which they warned could be passed on to borrowers or force some of the thousands of small collection firms to shutter. Those pushing for consumer rights said the proposal left major holes in borrower protections and did not go far enough.
  • Excessively low European Central Bank interest rates over a long period could do more harm than good but current rates are safely above such a level, ECB Executive Board Member Benoit Coeure said on Thursday.”The current conditions of financial intermediation suggest, however, that the economic lower bound is safely below the current level of the deposit facility rate and that the impact of negative rates, combined with the asset purchase program and forward guidance, has clearly been net positive,” he said.
  • The Bank of Japan, under pressure from the government, is considering specific steps for expanding monetary stimulus on Friday to address signs of weakness in inflation, people familiar with the central bank’s thinking said.By timing its action with the government’s big fiscal spending package, the bank would aim to maximize the boost of its measures on the world’s third-biggest economy, which is struggling to escape decades of deflation, the sources said.

INTERNATIONAL CURRENCY BUZZ :

  • Forex – Euro rises to 2-week highs vs. dollar
  • Forex – Aussie, kiwi rise after Fed leaves policy unchanged
  • Forex – Yen gains in Asia after FOMC holds pat as expected, BoJ eyed

EUR/USD
The euro rose to two-week highs against the U.S. dollar on Thursday, after the release of upbeat data from Spain and Germany, while the Federal Reserve’s most recent policy statement weighed on the greenback.EUR/USD hit 1.1119 during European morning trade, the pair’s highest since Ju;y 15; the pair subsequently consolidated at 1.1110, gaining 0.46%. The pair was likely to find support at 1.1035, the low of July 18 and resistance at 1.1150, the high of July 15.Data earlier showed that the number of unemployed people in Germany declined by 7,000 in July, compared to expectations for a 3,000 drop and after a 6,000 slide the previous month.Germany’s unemployment rate remained unchanged at 6.1% this month, in line with expectations.

GBP/USD
GBP/USD is currently trading with a slight bearish bias. Yesterday, the pair traded perfectly long as previously forecasted and even hit a key resistance level 1.3221. Although we expect further momentum to the upper side, we will only go long upon a clear breakout above 1.3221. A clear rebound from this level will lead to a possible bearish reversal towards 1.29053. This pair should be traded alongside GBP/NZD, GBP/JPY, GBP/CHF, and GBP/CAD. These pairs have a  similar price action during this intraday.

RECOMMENDATION :

  • BUY GBP/USD ABOVE 1.3200 TARGET1.3220 1.3250 SL 1.3170
