Euro May Start a Rally

Euro May Start a Rally

2021-10-29 • Updated

On October 28 European Central Bank held a press conference. Inflation has hit Europe and now the time has come for more profound steps in the fight with the post-pandemic economy. What should we know to trade these events?

What’s with the news?

The central bank had announced in September it would be buying fewer bonds off the back of surging consumer prices. For now, ECB decided to keep interest rates and its monetary policy unchanged despite ongoing inflationary pressures. Inflation in the eurozone hit 3.4% in September, representing a 13-year high.

Some market participants believe the ECB is underestimating current inflationary pressures and will therefore likely have to announce a rate hike before the start of 2023. But Lagarde said that the rates won’t be hiked anytime soon and that their anticipation and their analysis on the economic situation is correct.

Moreover, if to speak about the US, rate hikes may come in the States way earlier. Inflation in the country has already hit 5.4% and doesn’t plan to stop. If so, USD may rise significantly against EUR. 

What’s with the euro?

The currency is in a precarious position. Although the falling wedge had been broken, which is quite bullish, lots of moving averages are ahead and the fundamentals are multidirectional. Nevertheless, if the EUR/USD pair overcomes the resistance at 1.17, then 1,18 will be the next stop.

For the EUR/JPY pair, the figure is similar. While yen is weak amid QE continuation, euro may surge higher to the resistance at 134.4. But be aware of possible divergences on the RSI oscillator, they can help you to spot the upcoming reversal.
