ING forecasts EUR/USD at 1.16 this week

ING forecasts EUR/USD at 1.16 this week

Information is not investment advice

What happened?

The last week has ended with greater-than-expected NFP, but weaker average hourly earnings. 916,000 people were employed during March, while the forecast was only 647,000. Average hourly earnings dropped by 0.1%, whereas growth of 0.1% was anticipated. As a result, since NFP comes better, but earnings – worse, the USD will spike at first, but it will fall with the second wave.

Europe’s poor vaccination rollout and prolonged lockdowns keep pressing down the EUR. Unlike the EU, the USA is in a much better position. Biden claimed a goal of 200 million vaccinations in his first 100 days and unveiled the 2$ trillion infrastructure plan. As a result, Treasury yields surged. And as we know, rising yields would push the US dollar up.

Forecast

According to ING, EUR/USD is likely to dip further this week. So far, support at 1.1700 has been held, but the pair may break down to the low of 1.16 this week.

Technical analysis

EUR/USD is moving in a descending channel. On the weekly chart, the way down is constrained by the 50-week moving average of 1.1735. If it manages to break it and then crosses 1.1700, it should fall to November’s low at 1.1630. On the flip side, if it crosses the high of April 2 at 1.1790, it may jump to the 200-day moving average of 1.1870.

Will USDJPY slide lower in 2023?

Last year was tough for the Japanese yen. USDJPY gained more than 30% over 2022, striking above 150 in October. While anticipation of slower Fed rate hikes pulled the pair below the 130 level at the start of 2023, the speculations over the destiny of BOJ’s yield control policy grabbed the attention of the Japanese assets in the middle of January. What lies ahead for traders of the Japanese yen?
