EUR/USD Analysis

Key Points: -


·       EUR/USD extends its consecutive days of gains as it retraces from its highest levels seen since late May.


·       Despite predominantly negative economic data from Germany and the European Union, the currency pair fails to attract bearish sentiment due to the challenge posed by US inflation on the Federal Reserve's potential interest rate hike.


·       Anticipation grows for the possibility of receiving a more hawkish guidance from the US central bank, with focus on economic forecasts, the dot-plot, and Chairman Powell's upcoming speech.


·       Eurozone Industrial Production figures and US Producer Price Index are expected to provide some entertainment for Euro traders prior to the important Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting.

Today's Scenario: -


EUR/USD experiences a decline, reaching an intraday low near 1.0785, as it retraces from its recent gains achieved at the highest levels seen in three weeks on the day of the Federal Reserve (Fed) meeting, which falls on Wednesday. The Euro pair, however, managed to rise over the past two days, reaching a multi-day high of 1.0823, before retreating due to prevailing anxiety ahead of the Fed meeting. It is important to note that mixed economic data from Germany and the Eurozone, combined with hopes of a more hawkish stance from the Fed, supported buyers, even with underlying momentum from US inflation driving prices higher.

On Tuesday, the final readings for Germany's May inflation, as measured by the Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (HICP), remained unchanged at 6.3% year-on-year. Additionally, the German ZEW Survey revealed that the Economic Sentiment Index pleasantly surprised in June, rising to -8.5 from the previous -10.7, surpassing market expectations of -13.0. However, the Current Situation Index dropped to -56.5 from the previous -34.8, falling short of analysts' estimations of -40.0. On a broader scale, the Eurozone ZEW Economic Sentiment Index declined to -10.0 from the previous -9.4, missing the market's anticipated -1.5.

On the other hand, the US Consumer Price Index (CPI) showed a larger-than-expected decline, with the monthly and yearly figures reaching 0.1% and 4.0%, respectively. However, the Core CPI, which excludes Food & Energy, aligned with forecasts at 0.4% monthly and 5.3% yearly. Notably, the US headline CPI reached its lowest level since March 2021, supporting the market's expectation of a more dovish approach from the Federal Reserve (Fed), consequently weighing on the US Dollar.

Following the disappointing US inflation data, the CME's FedWatch Tool now suggests a greater than 90% probability of no rate hike by the Fed during today's monetary policy meeting, compared to around a 75% probability before the release.

Conversely, some former Fed officials have been advocating for a more hawkish stance to spur EUR/USD buyers. On Tuesday, former Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Robert Kaplan expressed support for a "hawkish pause" at this week's meeting, while also leaving the possibility of a rate hike in July open. Additionally, former Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren tweeted, "Expect a hawkish skip this week."

Against this backdrop, major US stock market indices rose for the second consecutive day, but US Treasury bond yields remained firm. The 10-year Treasury bond yields reached a 13-day high of 3.83%, while the two-year counterpart climbed to its highest level in three months at 4.70% before easing to 4.67% in recent hours. It is worth noting that the S&P 500 Futures currently reflect a cautious market sentiment, lacking a clear direction.

Looking ahead, the pre-Fed anxiety may limit EUR/USD movements, but Eurozone Industrial Production figures for April and the US Producer Price Index (PPI) for May could provide some entertainment for Euro traders.

Furthermore, there are high expectations in the market regarding a 0.25% interest rate hike by the European Central Bank (ECB), further emphasizing the divergence between the ECB and the Fed and instilling hope among Euro buyers. The focus also remains on the US central bank's economic forecasts, the dot-plot, and Chairman Jerome Powell's press conference, which are anticipated to provide clearer guidance.

Buy Scenario: -


The immediate upside for the EUR/USD pair faces challenges from the 200-bar Exponential Moving Average (EMA) located near 1.0800. Additionally, the top line of a rising channel that has been in place for a week acts as a resistance zone around 1.0820.


If the Euro bulls manage to push beyond the 1.0820 level, attention will turn to the convergence of the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the May downward move and the upper boundary of a bullish channel that has been forming for the past two weeks, which is currently around 1.0865. In such a scenario, there could be a possibility of a gradual rise towards the psychological level of 1.1000, till we do not advise to buy EUR/USD currency pair.


Sell Scenario: -


On the downside, a break below the bottom line of the immediate bullish channel, located around 1.0770, could prompt intraday sellers to take control of the EUR/USD pair. Subsequently, a swift decline towards 1.0730 cannot be ruled out.


However, the key level to watch for the Euro bears' conviction lies at the lower boundary of the broader ascending trend channel, currently around 1.0700. Till then we do not advise selling EUR/USD.


Support and Resistance Level: -

Support             Resistance  

S1 1.0758   -     R1 1.0826

S2 1.0722   -     R2 1.0859

S3 1.0689   -     R3 1.0895
