USD Remains Weak, EUR And GBP With a Slight Tailwind
Good morning everyone!
The U.S. dollar remained under pressure amid optimism about progress on stimulus talks in Washington. White House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she is hopeful for a stimulus agreement this week which would be bigger, better and retroactive. However, with the U.S. election looming the dollar’s fate will mainly hinge on the election outcome.
Looking ahead to the European Central Bank meeting next Thursday ECB President Christine Lagarde said the unexpectedly early pickup in coronavirus infections is a “clear risk” to the economic outlook, which could be a sign that policy makers are preparing for more monetary stimulus. Investors largely expect the ECB to wait until December before boosting its 1.35 trillion-euro pandemic bond-buying program. Updated projections for growth and inflation that could justify more action will be announced at the ECB meeting in December.
As anticipated in yesterday’s analysis, the EUR/USD broke its narrow price range and could now be heading toward 1.1880 or even 1.1915, provided that the 1.1850-level gives way to further bullish momentum in this pair.
The picture was completely different in the GBP/USD, which consolidated between 1.2980 and 1.2910 Tuesday.
We wish you good trades!
