The US dollar turned to the upside on Monday. Let's discuss what to expect next from the market.
Will the ECB be hawkish this time?
The European central bank will release its monetary policy statement and conduct a press conference on April 10 at 14:45 MT time.
We don’t expect the ECB to change its interest rate which is currently kept at 0%. However, the ECB president Mario Draghi may provide some hints on the possible changes to the current monetary policy amid the global slowdown. Last time his dovish comments on the current economic weakness in Europe pulled the EUR lower. If he is more hawkish this time, the EUR will rise.
• If the ECB is hawkish, the EUR will go up.
• If the ECB is dovish, the EUR will go down.
