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.



Yesterday saw the largest drop in recent years as the 10-year Bund yield sank more than 23 basis points; while the Euro weakened against the U.S. dollar as markets repriced the likelihood of Eurozone rate hikes in 2022 amidst the current geopolitical uncertainty.

EUR/USD Since the Release

Unsurprisingly, the hot inflation data did little to the currency pair and the shorter term downtrend continues. There was a slight move higher in anticipation of the data which appears to be nothing more than a pullback.

    • Sounds like you are looking at the ask price, or the mid price. I don't have access to the 10sec data at that time, but the 1 minute candle had a low at 7947.7. Ask low was 7954.7. So I guess you had a long position; in this case look at the bid price to see what is going on.
    • What really caught my eye about ChatAI is the way it aims to go beyond the limitations of traditional social media platforms. Instead of relying on text-based or voice-based interactions alone, this project is designed to support multimodal communication, allowing users to engage through a variety of formats like text, voice, and images. ChatAI is positioning itself as a revolutionary social application that combines advanced AI capabilities with the power of decentralized technology. The core idea is to open up a new era of social interaction by leveraging cutting-edge natural language processing (NLP) to enable smooth and efficient communication. But it's not just about the technical capabilities - ChatAI also seems to have a strong focus on personalization and continuous learning. The platform is built to continuously optimize its performance based on user data, adapting to individual preferences and enhancing the overall user experience over time. I was really excited to hear the news that the ChatAI (CHATAI) token is now listed on the Bitget cryptocurrency exchange. As someone who is deeply interested in the intersection of artificial intelligence, web3 technology, and social media, this listing feels like a significant milestone for the project.
    • I could remember what happened to Binance & kucoin. This might be another slap in the face of SEC but who knows, let's see how this unfolds.
