Euro May Start a Rally
Information is not investment advice
On October 28 European Central Bank held a press conference. Inflation has hit Europe and now the time has come for more profound steps in the fight with the post-pandemic economy. What should we know to trade these events?
What’s with the news?
The central bank had announced in September it would be buying fewer bonds off the back of surging consumer prices. For now, ECB decided to keep interest rates and its monetary policy unchanged despite ongoing inflationary pressures. Inflation in the eurozone hit 3.4% in September, representing a 13-year high.
Some market participants believe the ECB is underestimating current inflationary pressures and will therefore likely have to announce a rate hike before the start of 2023. But Lagarde said that the rates won’t be hiked anytime soon and that their anticipation and their analysis on the economic situation is correct.
Moreover, if to speak about the US, rate hikes may come in the States way earlier. Inflation in the country has already hit 5.4% and doesn’t plan to stop. If so, USD may rise significantly against EUR.
What’s with the euro?
The currency is in a precarious position. Although the falling wedge had been broken, which is quite bullish, lots of moving averages are ahead and the fundamentals are multidirectional. Nevertheless, if the EUR/USD pair overcomes the resistance at 1.17, then 1,18 will be the next stop.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
