EUR/USD Muted Following Mixed ZEW Survey, Euro Risks Remains Lower

The Euro and DAX saw a subdued reaction following a mixed ZEW report. Economic sentiment fell to 29.9 from 31.7 a month prior, however, printed above expectations, while current conditions fell 7.4, missing estimates of 5.0. German Investor confidence weakened in December amid a fourth Covid wave, while persistent supply bottlenecks in manufacturing added to the layer of uncertainty surrounding Germany’s growth outlook.

What’s more, the ZEW President stated that the decline in economic expectations signals that optimism over a stronger growth outlook are beginning to fade. This in turn, has factored into the ECB’s thinking, given source reports suggesting that the central bank may wait until next year before announcing any notable policy changes.

EUR: Marginal softness for the Euro, and as noted last week, the bias remains to fade rallies in the Euro. Near-term support for the pair is situated at 1.1230-35 and below 1.1370, risks remain to the downside.

    • Sorry, I didn't get it... What's Dual investment? 
    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
