Australian jobs report: Thursday, 1:30. April was an excellent month for the job market in Australia: 37.4K jobs were added. The forecast for May stands at a more modest 10.3K. The unemployment rate is predicted to remain at 5.7%.

Swiss rate decision: Thursday, 7:30. The Swiss National Bank makes its rate decision only once per quarter. Since removing the peg back in January 2015, aka “SNBomb”, the SNB maintains a negative deposit rate of -0.75% and they also intervene in currency markets to weaken the franc. No change is expected now, despite a weaker exchange rate.

UK rate decision: Thursday, 11:00. Will the Bank of England respond in any way to the election results? The team led by Mark Carney is projected to leave the interest rate unchanged at 0.25% and the total volume of its bond-buying program at 435 billion pounds. Alongside the decision, the Bank publishes the meeting minutes from the event. In the previous decisions, there was one member, Forbes, who voted for a rate hike given the rising inflation. She will probably dissent once again. A unanimous vote is expected around the bond-buying scheme.

Update: the pair may continue going down to reach the level of 1.1100. As could be seen on the chart above that the pair is traded below a strong resistance level around 1.1300. It also matches a Fibonacci level of 0.386 (From 14.10.2014 to 03.01.2017). So, we believe that as long as the pair is traded below it, it is highly recommended to go short targeting the level of 1.1200 followed by 1.1100 during the week. On the other hand, if the level of 1.1300 is broken (by at least a daily close) then the way would be open for the pair to reach 1.1400.
