EUR/USD Drops 0.9%, Gold Prices Shock Down Yesterday

1. Forex Market Insight    


EUR/USD fell 0.9% to 1.0616 on Thursday, 9th June 2022.

The European Central Bank (ECB) announced on Thursday, 9th June 2022, that it will end a long-term stimulus program and said it will raise interest rates in July for the first time since 2011.

There could be a bigger move in September. 

The central bank is seeking to curb rising inflation.

However, the lack of any details on plans to deal with the fragmented financing environment led the euro to weaken against the dollar.

The European Central Bank said differences in borrowing costs among European countries hindered the execution of its monetary policy.

Technical Analysis:

We focus on the 1.0697-line today. If EUR runs steadily above the 1.0697-line, then pay attention to the support strength of the two positions of 1.0734 and 1.0776. If the strength of EUR breaks below the 1.0697-line, then pay attention to the suppression strength of the two positions of 1.0642 and 1.0529.

GBP Intraday Trend Analysis   

Fundamental Analysis:

British Prime Minister Johnson suffered a no-confidence vote.

Although he narrowly won in the end, some analysts suggested that his prime minister status still faces challenges.  

Political risks in the UK and concerns about an economic slowdown are putting pressure on the pound.

According to sources, Johnson plans to advance legislation that would give him the power to overturn parts of the Britain’s Brexit deal.

Such a move could anger some Members of Parliament (MPS) from the party and the European Union (EU).

This is potentially bearish for the pound.

Fundamental Analysis:   

Gold prices shocked down on Thursday, 9th June 2022, once falling to the 1840 mark during the day to close at $1847.96 an ounce. 

Climbing U.S. Treasury yields and a stronger U.S. dollar have weakened the appeal of gold. 

U.S. inflation data to be released on Friday, 10th June 2022, could strengthen the case for aggressive Fed policy tightening.
