Fiscal Cliff talks remain deadlocked

Negotiations between the Democrats and Republicans on deficit-cutting measures aimed at avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff fell apart last Friday, after House Speaker John Boehner failed to bring his ‘Plan B’ bill to a vote. US lawmakers have now just one week left to reach an agreement; otherwise a combination of automatic tax increases and spending cuts will be triggered on January 1.

If the Democrats and the Republicans manage to strike a deal on time, it will not only help to avert the fiscal cliff but will also prevent the Fitch rating agency from carrying out its threat, articulated last Wednesday, of cutting the US rating.President Barack Obama’s offer consists of raising 1.2 trillion dollars in revenue through taxing households with an income exceeding 400.000 dollars per year. His plan includes 400 billion dollars in health care savings. After twenty-one House of Representatives members rejected on Friday Boehner’s “Plan B”, anticipating higher taxes for people earning more than 1 million dollars annually, the negotiations disintegrated and the were finally adjourned until after Christmas.- FXstreet.com

MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis
Upwards scenario: The pair is attempting to move higher, supported by both moving averages. Our next resistance level stay at 1.3246 (R1). Break here might continue medium-term positive bias and expose our targets at 1.3260 (R2) and 1.3274 (R3). Downwards scenario: A failure to clear next resistance barrier could open the way towards the initial support level at 1.3215 (S1). Loss here might take the pair towards to eventual targets, located at 1.3201 (S2) and 1.3187 (S3) in potential.

OUTLOOK SUMMARY: Down
TREND CONDITION: Upward penetration
TRADERS SENTIMENT: Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY: Medium

Upwards scenario: Instrument stabilized after the downtrend formation and possibility of correction is high. If it manages to overcome resistance at 1.6143 (R1), we would suggest next targets at 1.6154 (R2) and 1.6165 (R3) in perspective. Downwards scenario: Price depreciation below the support at 1.6123 (S1) level might likely push the pair toward the second target at 1.6112 (S2) and any further market decline would then be limited to support at 1.6102 (S3) price.
