EUR/USD, Strengthening USD putting pressure on the EUR.

EUR/USD market sentiment is currently reflected as bearish for this currency pair as the graph shows the declining price over the past week. In the past weeks, the Euro has been underperforming as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war causing fears of Eurozone stagflation. The ECB is stuck at the moment with increasing inflation and slow growth, the likelihood of the ECB’s capacity to match the aggressiveness of the Fed is low. Perhaps toward the end of the week we will see the EURO bounce against the USD inlight of the talks at the IMF/World bank events.

The Euro seems to be strengthening against the GBP after it depreciated late last week. Since the market opened this morning, the investor sentiment for this currency pair has become bullish. There is suspicion that the sharp fall in the value of the EUR/GBP last Thursday may have come out of China in an attempt to stop any more strengthening in the Renminbi. The future value of this currency pair is important to watch in the coming days, with major appointments on talks about finances coming up, especially both the ECB and BoE governors talks at the IMF/World Bank events later this week.
