The EURUSD pair trades with modest gains in the 1.0760 price zone, volatile in the middle of the European Central Bank monetary policy decision. The central bank has maintained rates on hold, as expected while anticipating a 25 bps hike in July. The pair fell to 1.0687 but quickly recovered from the level, despite policymakers upwardly reviewing inflation figures.
Annual inflation is now seen at 6.8% for this year, then decreasing to 3.5% in 2023 and to 2.1% in 2024. Growth has been downwardly revised to 2.8% in 2022 and to 2.1% for the next two years. Additionally, another rate hike is planned for September, and the scale of the increment would depend on the medium-term inflation outlook.
ECB President Christine Lagarde is giving a speech, which could spur more volatility around the pair, particularly within the Q&A. In the meantime, the US published Initial Jobless Claims for the week ended June 3, which were up to 229K, worse than anticipated.
EURUSD retreats from 10-day highs, trades below 1.0750, losing its traction, after having advanced toward 1.0800 earlier in the session. With ECB President Lagarde refraining from committing to a 50 bps rate hike in September, the shared currency is struggling to preserve its strength and allowing the pair to edge lower.
The EURUSD pair trades around the 50% retracement of its latest daily slump at 1.0770, also near the May high at 1.0780. According to the daily chart, the risk is now skewed to the upside.
Technical indicators have turned higher within positive levels, reflecting increased buying interest. At the same time, the 20 SMA maintains its bullish slope below the current level, approaching the 38.2% retracement of the aforementioned decline at 1.0665.
The above 4-hour chart shows that the bullish momentum picked up, as technical indicators head firmly north within positive levels and at their highest for this week. The 100 SMA keeps advancing below the current level while the pair rallies above a flat 20 SMA. The pair has room to extend its gains once above the 1.0780 region, aiming then for the next Fibonacci resistance at 1.0860.
Support levels are at 1.0710, 1.0665, and 1.0620.
Resistance levels ar at 1.0780, 1.0815, and 1.0860.
