Euro Price Latest – EUR/USD Slumps to 1.1000, EUR/GBP Hits a Near Six-Year Low

EUR/USD Price, Chart, and Analysis

  • EUR/USD continues to slide, will 1.1000 bring any relief?
  • US Job reports will act as the next, short-term driver.

Euro | Dollar: Euro falls to lowest since 2016 vs sterling, Aussie dollar  shines

The Euro is unable to buy a break at the moment with the single currency under pressure from a host of other major currencies. EUR/USD is now 1.1000, a low last seen in May 2020, while the Euro printed its lowest level against Sterling (0.8260) since July 2016. The Federal Reserve and the Bank of England are both hiking interest rates and looking to withdraw pandemic liquidity from their markets, the ECB is stuck and unlikely to raise interest rates until early 2023. The underlying shift in rate hike expectations over the past few weeks has weighed heavily on EUR/USD and EUR/GBP and will continue to do so in the months ahead.

 

The war in Eastern Europe is also pressing down on the Euro with Germany’s heavy dependence on Russian oil and gas seen as a negative for Europe’s largest economy. With energy prices sky-high, there are growing fears that the German economy may stall, bringing into doubt the ECB’s plan of reducing the zone’s dependence on quantitative easing. Inflation is also rife in Europe - as it is globally - and with slowing growth and rising inflation, the ECB needs to tread very carefully when looking to temper price pressures within the single block. Next Thursday’s ECB monetary policy meeting will be an event to follow closely.

Today’s US Jobs Report (NFP) will need to be followed, although its overall effect on the market is weakening due to the path of future US interest rate hikes being fairly well signposted. The US jobs market is tight and is expected to remain so for the immediate future.

EUR/USD is pressing down on 1.1000, a psychological level more than a pure technical level, and a confirmed break below here opens up the potential for a longer-term move all the way back down to the pre-pandemic double low at 1.0636.

Lessons For Becoming a Better Trader

EUR/USD DAILY PRICE CHART – MARCH 4, 2022

Euro Price Latest – EUR/USD Slumps to 1.1000, EUR/GBP Hits a Near Six-Year Low

Retail trader data shows 68.93% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.22 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 2.65% higher than yesterday and 20.93% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 8.82% lower than yesterday and 12.06% lower from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests EUR/USD prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger EUR/USD-bearish contrarian trading bias.

What is your view on the EURO – bullish or bearish?

    • I saw Taiko on my TL yesterday but I didn't particularly pay much attention to it... But it seem they are on a good path and have forged some reputable partnerships along the way...  I have to say it's association with big guns of the industry like OKX, Kucoin etc makes it a good prospect and if you can get some of the coins early in the Bitget Pre-Market trading as you said, it will probably be a good investment in a long run! 
    • Gold Elliott Wave Analysis  Function - Trend Mode - Impulse Structure - Impulse wave Position -Wave A of (4) Direction - Wave A of (4) is still in progress Details - 1st Scenario - Gold now favors the current dip to continue as part of wave (4) in a zigzag structure.  2nd Scenario -  It may be wave 4 turning into an expanding flat with a dip below the current wave 4 low. If after the current bearish impulse below wave 4 low, the price reacts with a bullish impulse, then this scenario will be favored.  The 1st scenario will be preferred if the next rally is corrective. The 1st has a lower price forecast than the 2nd. Gold is currently experiencing a pullback from a fresh all-time high. However, the year-long and all-time bullish cycle remains intact. Buyers will therefore look for the next opportunity to buy the dip, anticipating that the uptrend will continue. Identifying when the dip is over is crucial. This blog post aims to analyze that. On the daily timeframe, the current bullish impulse trend emerged from the 1616 low of September 2022, marking the start of the supercycle degree 4th wave of a multi-decade impulse wave. Consequently, the supercycle 5th wave is far from completion as it has not even yet completed the 3rd sub-wave of its 3rd sub-wave, i.e., intermediate wave (3) of primary wave 3 (circled in blue). The current pullback is expected to be wave (4) of the primary degree.   On the H4 chart, wave (4) is completing its first wave—wave A—as an impulse. It is expected to correct upwards in wave B before dropping further to form a zigzag, at least into the 38.2-50% retracement zone at 2256-2199. After wave (4), the price could ascend again in wave (5). However, there can be alternative scenarios that may unfold. The best among them is a running flat structure for wave 4 of (3). The current impulse could complete a 3-3-5 structure for wave 4 below its current low if the response afterward is a bullish impulse. In summary, gold is in a pullback that could reach 2256-2199 before resuming its upward movement to continue the all-time bullish cycle to a new high.

    • Pepe Coin's rise to prominence serves as a fascinating example of the influence of community and hype in the cryptocurrency realm. Despite its creators acknowledging that PEPE holds no inherent value or profit potential, the coin's market value soared past $1 billion following its listing on Binance and Coinbase International Exchange. This surge underscores the significant impact of excitement and speculation in the crypto world. The Power of Community-Driven Initiatives PEPE's success highlights the power of community-driven initiatives in the crypto industry. Analysts cautiously predict that PEPE could potentially reach $0.000078 by 2030, although such projections are speculative and contingent on market conditions. Competition in the Meme Coin Space The rivalry between Pepe coin and Shiba Inu (SHIB) is heating up as new meme coins emerge. PEPE is currently trading at $0.00001424, boasting a 3.40% increase in value over the past day. Its weekly and annual performance is also promising, with gains of 32% and 109%, respectively. Analyzing PEPE's Price Trends Pepe Coin has been May's standout performer, experiencing a continuous rally in recent days. While it's stepping down from its recent all-time high of $0.00001535, its current value of $0.00001436 places it among the top 20 cryptocurrencies on CoinMarketCap. PEPE's trading volume of $4.06 billion ranks it 7th among the highest transactioned cryptos. The Ups and Downs of PEPE Since its launch, PEPE has seen fluctuations but has never dipped to its initial value. After an initial surge followed by a decline, PEPE rose again, setting a new all-time high three times higher than before. This pattern seems to be repeating itself. Conclusion Pepe Coin's journey exemplifies how community enthusiasm can drive the value of cryptocurrencies, even in the absence of inherent value. As the competition between meme coins intensifies, PEPE's story serves as a testament to the power of community-driven tokens in shaping the crypto landscape.
