Spain's Fiscal Consolidation Pressure To Continue: Moody's

By | November 28, 2016

The 2017 outlook for Spanish regions is stable but fiscal consolidation pressures will continue and structural reforms may be deferred under the minority government, Moody’s Investors Service said Monday.

Although Moody’s expects regional deficits to narrow in 2016, the ratings agency believes they will still breach the government-imposed deficit limit target of 0.7 percent of regional GDP.

In the report, “Regional Governments — Spain: 2017 Outlook – Fiscal Consolidation and Rising Economic Growth Drive Stable Outlook”, the agency reiterated that the economy is set to grow 2 percent in 2017.

“Spain’s improving economic prospects will help reduce budgetary pressure for the regions,” Marisol Bl?zquez, a Moody’s Analyst and author of the report, said.

“Spain’s positive economic growth should gradually increase the regions’ tax revenues and central government transfers, helping them to rebalance their budgets.”

Moody’s cautioned that outlook for Spanish regions could change to negative if slower-than-expected economic growth or deficit reduction were to threaten or postpone debt stabilisation.

The price zone between 1.3845 and 1.3550 (historical bottoms set in January 2009) was considered a significant demand zone to be watched for bullish recovery.

However, by the end of June a significant bearish break below 1.3550 was expressed as seen on the depicted charts (fundamental reasons).

Bearish persistence below the demand level at 1.3550 enhanced the bearish scenario towards the current price levels around 1.2700 (nearest bearish projection target).

Note that the GBP/USD pair was trapped inside the depicted consolidation range above 1.2700 until a bearish breakout took place on October 6.

Daily persistence below 1.2700 confirmed the bearish Flag pattern. That’s why, bearish projection target would be located around 1.2020.

Recently, bullish recovery was manifested around 1.2080. That is why, a bullish pullback is being executed towards 1.2700.

Any bullish pullback towards 1.2700 should be considered for a valid SELL entry. The recent bearish engulfing WEEKLY candlestick enhances this bearish scenario. T/P levels should be located at 1.2300 and 1.2100.
