EUR/USD Recovers on Ukraine-Russia Deal forward of Busy Week

The EUR/USD has recovered impressively to show flat on the session after being down greater than 100 pips earlier within the day when it was hammered on the again of very weak PMI information. However the turnaround has now been accomplished, and extra positive factors may very well be on the best way as we head in the direction of a busy subsequent week.

Sentiment improved in the direction of danger property after Ukraine and Russia signed a UN-backed deal to permit the export of tens of millions of tonnes of grain from blockaded Black Sea ports. This has the potential to not solely avert the specter of a serious international meals disaster however cut back inflationary pressures too. The truth that Russian gasoline flows have re-started after upkeep works resulted in Nord Stream 1 pipeline is additional excellent news.

A part of the explanation why the EUR/USD recovered had nothing to do with the euro, however every part to do with the US greenback. The dollar fell throughout the board as bond yields plunged on rising considerations over an financial slowdown that within the eyes of the market would carry ahead price cuts from the Fed. For certainly, the euro remained on the backfoot in opposition to most different main currencies, together with the pound and yen.

I nonetheless assume that the EUR/USD is due for a correction in the direction of at the least 1.0350, with the potential to retest the 1.05 deal with additionally can’t be dominated out, given the latest bullish value motion, together with at the moment’s considerably spectacular restoration. Nonetheless, all bets are off if charges break beneath the 1.0150 help stage first. In that situation, one other retest of parity would then turn into probably.

The EUR/USD will face one other testing week, with macro occasions (and firm information) to take into consideration from either side of the Atlantic. The macro highlights embrace:

  • FOMC price resolution (Wednesday) – Inflation stays very popular within the US. Annual CPI accelerated to a 4-decade excessive of 9.1% in June, beating analysts’ expectations for the fourth time. The Fed has been front-loading aggressive price hikes to manage costs, even at a value of financial progress. Anticipate one other 75-basis level hike.
  • US Advance GDP (Thursday) – With inflation persevering with to eat into customers’ disposable incomes and revenue margins of companies, there’s a rising feeling that the Fed’s aggressive tightening will see the US fall right into a recession. Is the US already in a technical recession? Output fell 1.6% in Q1 in an annual format. One other detrimental print means technical recession.
  • Eurozone CPI and GDP (Friday) – The ECB lastly began its battle in opposition to inflation with a 50-basis level price hike, with President Lagarde warning that inflation may speed up additional and that future price selections might be data-dependant. CPI and GDP are clearly crucial in that regard, which ought to carry the euro in sharp focus.
