USD surged after Fed's speech. NFP is eyed

USD surged after Fed's speech. NFP is eyed

Information is not investment advice

Latest news

  • The US dollar skyrocketed on Thursday after Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s speech. He did not express any concern about a recent sell-off in Treasuries and emphasized that this sell-off in bonds won’t push the Fed to intervene earlier than expected. Therefore, the prospect of low rates for longer triggered a spike in bond yields that in turn increased the USD demand. The greenback surged to the highs unseen since December.
  • Meanwhile, the US Senate passed Biden’s $1.9 trillion relief bill. As a result, the much-awaited stimulus should be finally approved by the end of this week.
  • OPEC and allied producers agreed to extend production cuts for another month, even despite the recent surge of oil prices. Moreover, Saudi Arabia announced that it would prolong its extra cut of 1 million barrels a day through April. WTI oil jumped to $65.00, Brent – to $67.50.

EUR/USD was trading inside the ascending channel since mid-summer and Fed’s comments pressed the pair down and as a result, it broke through the lower line of the channel at 1.2000. It has approached the next support of 1.1950. The move below it will drive EUR/USD to the next round number of 1.19000. Resistance levels are 1.2000 and 1.2050.
