The EURUSD pair hit a weekly high of 1.1120 following the release of the European Central Bank monetary policy announcement. As widely anticipated, policymakers decided to leave rates unchanged but introduced a hawkish twist in the Asset Purchase Program that will now end in the third quarter of this year. The APP will amount to 40 billion Euros in April, 30 billion Euros in May and 20 billion Euros in June.
Policymakers noted that if the inflation outlook changed and financing circumstances became incompatible with progress towards the 2% inflation target, they would alter the net asset purchase schedule in terms of magnitude and/or length.
The pair retreated modestly from the level ahead of US inflation data. The country reported that in February, the Consumer Price Index hit a multi-decade high of 7.9% YoY as expected. The core reading surged to 6.4%, also as anticipated by the market. The greenback came back under selling pressure with the headline.
At the time being, ECB President Christine Lagarde is giving a press conference, which started with Lagarde expressing concerns about the Russian-Ukrainian war and its impact on the economy and inflation.
EURUSD erases ECB-inspired gains, closes in on 1.1000. EURUSD rose sharply after the European Central Bank (ECB) announced that it will end the Asset Purchase Program (APP) in the third quarter. The pair, however, reversed its direction and started to decline toward 1.1000 on ECB President Lagarde’s cautious comments.
The EURUSD pair is up for a third consecutive day, with the pair posting higher highs ever since bottoming at 1.0855 on Monday. The daily chart shows that despite the pair remaining around the 38.2% retracement of its latest daily slump, the recovery is losing momentum. Technical indicators have lost their bullish slopes well into negative territory, while the 20 SMA keeps heading firmly lower above the current level and below the longer ones.
The pair remains bullish in the near term and according to technical readings in the 4-hour chart. Technical indicators resumed their advances near overbought readings, while EURUSD keeps developing above a bullish 20 SMA. The next Fibonacci resistance level comes at 1.1150, the 50% retracement of the aforementioned decline. The pair can recover its bullish potential on a clear break above it.
Support levels are at 1.1055, 1.1020, and 1.0970.
Resistance levels are at 1.1110, 1.1150, and 1.1195.
