EUR/USD Falls Nearly 0.9%, U.S. Oil Prices Extend Gains


1. Forex Market Insight    

EUR/USD  

EUR remains weak currently after data on Tuesday, 31st May 2022, showed eurozone inflation hit a record high in May. 

This has increased pressure on the European Central Bank, which is now fending off recession while seeking to curb high prices by gradually raising interest rates in the coming months.

Inflation in the 19-nation eurozone accelerated to 8.1% in May from 7.4% in April, beating expectations of 7.7%. 

The continuous rise in goods prices suggests that energy is no longer the only factor that is driving the overall data.  

EUR/USD fell nearly 0.9%, hitting a three-day low of $1.0678 and closing at $1.0731, down about 0.4%.

2. Precious Metals Market Insight   

Gold   

Fundamental Analysis:   

Gold prices are facing resistance from “a stronger dollar and sharply higher bond yields. 

A stronger dollar is detrimental to dollar-denominated commodities, making them more expensive for users of other currencies. 

In contrast, rising U.S. Treasury yields raise the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding assets.

OPEC+ consists of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and oil-producing allies led by Russia.
