Navigating the EURUSD Ahead of ECB’s Interest Rate Decision

As the financial markets continue to digest crucial economic data, the spotlight now falls on the impending European Central Bank (ECB) interest rate decision. Against the backdrop of a strengthening US dollar and a shifting monetary policy landscape, traders and investors are keenly observing the EURUSD pair, assessing its trajectory in the wake of unfolding events.

The latest surge in the US Core Consumer Price Index (CPI) to 3.5% has injected fresh dynamics into the currency markets. With this surge, expectations of a rate cut by the Federal Reserve in June have dwindled. The USD has consequently strengthened, as evidenced by the decline in the probability of a rate cut, as indicated by the CME Fed Watch Tool.

As eyes turn towards the ECB, market participants are bracing for President Lagarde’s address and the interest rate decision tomorrow. Forecasts suggest that the ECB will maintain its interest rates at 4.50%, with anticipation for a dovish tone from President Lagarde.

The economic landscape in Europe paints a complex picture. Inflation rates hover around 2.4%, tantalizingly close to the ECB’s target range of 2%. However, the sluggish GDP growth rate, stagnating at 0.0%, raises concerns about the region’s economic vitality. This juxtaposition of factors fuels speculation about the possibility of an impending rate cut by the ECB.

Against this backdrop, the EURUSD pair finds itself edging towards a critical juncture. Prices are descending towards the pivotal support level of 1.0700, formed from the lows recorded on February 14th of this year. A breach of this support level could intensify selling pressure, potentially triggering further downward movement. The next significant support level looms around 1.0500, adding to the significance of the current juncture.



The price on the chart has traded through multiple technical levels and some observations included:

  • EURUSD price is heading towards key supporting levels of 1.0750.
  • A dovish hold by the ECB could drive prices lower, and a close below 1.0700 could invite further selling pressure.
