The ECB continues to grapple with the idea of raising rates in 2022 despite previously anticipating the first hike in 2023. The February meeting of the Governing Council was perceived as rather hawkish by market participants as the door was left open for a potential hike in Q4 of 2022. Since then, the Euro outlook has ben muddied by the invasion of Ukraine and the potential impact it could have on the Eurozone for the remainder of the year.

EUR/USD Since the Release

    • Look Ahead to 09/02/23: US Initial jobless claims; AZN, ULVR, LYFT earnings Hot on the heels of surprisingly strong US jobs numbers, we get initial jobless claims data. AstraZeneca’s (AZN) pipeline will be in focus. Plus, Unilever (ULVR) Credit Suisse (CSGN) and Lyft (LYFT) also report.

    • Since USD/JPY has given a technical sell signal, we would like to go short the cross at ¥130.85 with a downside target at ¥126.50 and a stop-loss just above Monday’s high at ¥132.95.
