The EURUSD pair is up but below the 1.2200 figure, with the greenback shedding ground against most of its major rivals. As widely anticipated, the European Central Bank left rates and its easing programs unchanged in its June decision. Policymakers announced that rates will remain at present or lower levels until inflation approaches their goal. Also, they repeated that the PEPP would continue to run at a significantly higher pace than in Q1.
Meanwhile, US inflation was upwardly revised to 5% YoY in May, accelerating at its fastest pace in almost 13 years. The initial reaction to the news was a higher dollar, although it lacked follow-through.
Core annual inflation was upwardly revised to 3.8% YoY from the previous estimate of 3%. The US also published Initial Jobless Claims for the week ended June 4, which resulted at 376K, better than the previous 385K but slightly above the 370K expected.
ECB’s President Christine Lagarde is giving a press conference and may spur some action.
EURUSD falls after dovish ECB, strong US CPI to around 1.2150 after the ECB prolonged its high pace of bond buys. The dollar is advancing after US CPI hit 5% YoY in May, beating estimates.
The EURUSD pair is modestly up, trading in the 1.2190 price zone. The near-term picture is neutral-to-bullish, but the momentum is still missing.
In the above 4-hour chart, the pair is still trading within directionless moving averages, which offer slightly ascendant slopes. Technical indicators head higher but remain at neutral levels. Bulls could have better chances if the pair clearly breaks above the 1.2200 level.
Support levels are at 1.2160, 1.2120, and 1.2070.
Resistance levels are at 1.2200, 1.2245, and 1.2280.
For next week, and as illustrated in the following chart, our technical indicators suggest to short the EURUSD at or above 1.21892, setting a stop loss at 1.2285, and to go Long at or below 1.2050, setting a stop loss at 1.20.
