EUR/USD: ahead of report on US consumer sentiment
Information is not investment advice
EUR surged after the encouraging data on the EU industrial production. The US consumer sentiment data this evening can add some fresh volatility.
Let’s get the chronology of recent events concerning EUR/USD.
May 26 – June 4: EUR/USD kept rallying at a high speed.
June 5: the better-than-expected NFP raised demand for USD, and the pair fell down.
June 6 – June 10: EUR was climbing again.
June 11: the market sentiment switched to risk-off on the previous day’s Fed pessimistic outlook for the US recovery and fears of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, EUR/USD dropped again.
June 12, 12:00 MT time: the Eurozone industrial production turned out better than analysts anticipated. EUR/USD went upward. Nevertheless, we must admit that euro bulls are not so strong anymore.
June 12, 17:00 MT time: the US consumer sentiment report will be published. It will definitely give an additional stimulus to the next EUR/USD price movement. If the US consumer sentiment is worse than the forecast, it may push the pair down because it will underpin the risk-off sentiment and increase demand for the safe-haven US dollar. However, the market these days is really unpredictable. Catch the market movement and join it!
