Podcast: Speaking Of EUR/USD And The Future Of Euro, COVID-19, British Pound And Bank Of England | Oanda

EUR/USD Pair Has Potential For The Downside Movement Today

Senior Market Analyst Jeffrey Halley talks about news impacting the market and the week ahead.

In this week’s podcast, the Euro is approaching parity with the US Dollar for the first time in decades. We discuss the move, the reasons behind it, and what lies ahead for the single currency. But first, it is a quick look at Asian markets where covid-19 concerns in China are weighing on sentiment. Then it is the British Pound and UK data and of course, British politics. From there it is the Bank of England before getting our teeth stuck into US inflation data due tomorrow. We ponder its implications for the market and why it matters to the Fed.
