Inflation in the US and Great Britain hits high levels and everybody is working hard to handle it. Tightening of monetary policy, hawkish rhetoric and other means are used to tackle one of the most significant problem of today’s world. Today’s news? The US PPI (MoM) hit 1.4% and crude oil inventories didn’t help USOIL to go down. Tomorrow is going to influence European indices as ECB releases its long-awaited interest rate decision. The announcement takes place at 12:45 p.m. tomorrow. Undoubtedly loose monetary policy has helped DAX, CAC40 and IBEX35 many times before As we see on the charts ECB was hawkish many years ago. However, the monetary policy has been loosen several times to finally become a “neutral” one. ECB interest rate amounts to 0% right now and the last time the key rate got higher was 2016. Since then DAX (below) has been stimulated by loose monetary policy.

It’s not easy time for Europe’s residents and European Central Bank’s decision makers. Ongoing war in the Ukraine with foreseen, intensified warfare and consequences of COVID-19 pandemic influenced economics of many countries. Naturally, the charts show that DAX and CAC40 trade higher than before the outbreak of the virus. To me, it only supports the thesis all mentioned events stopped European indices, companies and countries from growing much, much further. Emphatic European Central Bank (ECB) Let Economies Recover And Stay Strong? Since 2016 the ECB interest rate has amounted to 0%. Having in mind all the events which took place throughout last six years it seems to had been a correct decision.

ECB is trapped in. These two contradictory factors may make decision makers confused, but let’s have a look how have markets reacted to today’s monetary policy statement of ECB. Forex: EUR/GBP Chart Shows Consequent Move Of The Price Strengthening of euro or weakening of British pound is driven by i.a. inflation data coming from the United Kingdom. The news coming from the UK in past months weren’t so optimistic as the inflation hit 30-year-high. EUR/GBP Chart Forex: EUR/USD influenced by both – ECB interest rate decision, war and Fed’s rhetoric As the week is coming to the end we see how many factors shaped the rates of certain currencies. This week’s inflation data of USA and the release of crude oil inventories make the asset quite volatile. Yeah… The right hand side… That’s a drop! EUR/USD Chart DAX Regained After Trading Lower Yesterday’s Morning Significant, ca. 2% decrease is almost compensated.
