Forecasting Strategy for Short Term Trade


EUR/USD resumes the upside and leaves behind Tuesday’s downtick, although the bullish attempt once again bumped against the 1.0570/80 resistance area. The positive performance of the pair came in response to the renewed weakness in the greenback as well as the persistent hawkish message from ECB speakers.

On the latter, Board members Müller and Villeroy continue to lean towards an interest rate hike as soon as this summer, while Chairwoman Lagarde reiterated that the bond-purchase programme is expected to conclude in Q3


The USD/JPY pair caught aggressive bets during the early North American session and shot to the daily high in reaction to stronger-than-expected US consumer inflation figures. The momentum, however, ran out of steam near the 130.80 region and the subsequent pullback dragged spot prices back closer to the 130.00 psychological mark.

Looking at the broader picture, this week's pullback from a fresh two-decade high, around the 131.35 region touched on Monday, constitutes the formation of a bearish double-top on short-term charts.

Markets have digested the inflation data over the course of the trading day making for swings in risk sentiment and price action across the financial asset classes. It was a mixed report in that the Consumer Price Index climbed 8.3%, higher than the 8.1% estimate but below the 8.5% in the prior month.

While the US inflation data reinforces a hawkish sentiment from the Federal Reserve and justifies front loading called for by the Fed's chairman, Jerome Powell, markets were relieved that the data showed a decline in CPI on an annual basis.


Oil prices jumped on Wednesday after plunging nearly 10% in the previous two sessions, buoyed by supply concerns as flows of Russian gas to Europe fell and the European Union worked on gaining support for a Russian oil embargo.
