Today’s ECB monetary policy meeting acted as a boost for the EUR, though the overall outlook doesn’t look bright. As key points to take from Draghi’s Q&A at the press conference we found:
Outlook is getting worse and worse
Previous forecasts showed rebound in Q2 but now incoming signs show weakness
The balance of risks is on the downside
We don't like what we see on the inflation front
Any rate cut would come with mitigating measures
No discussion about cutting rates today
Want to see the next round of projections before taking action
It's difficult to be gloomy today
The risk of recession is pretty low
If weakness continues, fiscal policy becomes of the essence
Looking forward to what the committee comes up with (on options for easing)
Euro got some fuel from the comments about mitigating action and also from the comment that there was no discussion of a rate cut today.
On the charts we can see that EURUSD reached a 2 year low, very close to 1.1100, before the press conference and rebound shortly after more than 80 pips, to retest the previous support area. Currently the price fell back towards a local support and is trading at around 1.1150.
Though the Q&A gave the EUR a boost, the overall fundamentals does not look good for the Euro Area, meaning the rally could have ended and the Euro now could go back to reaching new lows. A break below this local support would confirm the bearish scenario.
When I joined the Rally family, I had zero knowledge about forex. I attended their seminars and lectures and it was a thorough and quality experience. Talking about my success in forex , it’s a steady process , I’ve enjoyed lots of profits and a few losses. I’m grateful for the rally trade foundation I have, I look to grow from under the wings of Rally.
I was told I could make money in my comfort zone, then I thought; “this could actually happen in my dreams”. But guess what, I made money and I’m still making money in my comfort zone with RALLY TRADE. To my account manager OLUWASEUN: thank you for keeping to your words and for being nice at the same time, thank you for having my back, you’re the best.To RALLYTRADE: thank you for this opportunity and for letting me know I could do more and better with myself..
I am so much impressed not by anybody's action or motivation to pronounce my encounter with rally trade company. I would love to say this company has done so much in my life; personally. I listen to a radio station programme about a seminar/training on how to trade forex, I planned to attend though I don't believe it will work for me. After the training I got a call from one of Rally trade staff, in person of Tamuno who done so much to convince me to go in for the trade. This young girl have been so impacting since I stated the trade and she has never for once ignore my request for support and advice; I so much appreciate you...
