  • ECB recap – GDP, expansion and rates.
  • U.S. CPI in concentrate sometime in the afternoon.
  • IG client opinion: Bearish.


The previous European Central Bank (ECB) rate choice and public interview (albeit more hawkish) sent the euro tumbling post-declaration. Paving the way to the declaration, markets were evaluating in a more forceful position however the ECB suppressed these projections by opening up the potential for a 50bps rate climb in September and not July as many anticipated. Furthermore, development figures were reconsidered lower accordingly burdening euro potential gain notwithstanding the chance of the previously mentioned 50bps bounce. Gross domestic product development amendments read as follows:

  • 2.8% in 2022, 2.1% in 2023, and 2.1% in 2024

While the opposite is valid for expansion (reexamined higher), all the rage is stagflation (high expansion combined with declining development) again. Brushed of by many last year, the possibility is turning out to be always logical which could have serious drawback impacts for the euro would it be advisable for it work out as expected.

We can see through the table beneath that currency markets have solidified their assumptions for 75bps by September which incorporates a 50bps climb for the month in this manner any tentative disillusionment (for example two 25bps climbs) could truly push EUR/USD lower.



The monetary schedule today is overwhelmed by U.S. CPI information for May with much accentuation on the title figure. Customarily, center expansion is the favored measure for the Federal save yet it appears markets and media favor the title figure o late times. The print is guage to come in at 8.3% which is equivalent to April’s print however anything in line or higher could push the euro underneath 1.0600 today as the U.S. dollar tracks down help.



Trendline obstruction (dark) on the day to day EUR/USD graph above has held indeed underscoring its significance since early February 2022. Cost activity is slanted to the drawback and that wouldn’t shock me at all assuming we see bears break underneath 1.0600 towards the 1.0500 mental zone.

Resistance levels:

  • 1.0800
  • Trendline resistance (black)
  • 50-day EMA (blue)
  • 20-day EMA (purple)

Support levels:

  • 1.0600
  • 1.0500
