- Weekly Signals
- 2021, 31 July
Last week, EURUSD and EURINR surged by almost 1 percent
touching the higher levels of 1.1909 and 88.62 respectively as
the US Dollar Index slumped after the US 10-year debt touched
a record low, which for some reflects concerns over the spread
of the delta coronavirus variant and a possible peak in the
economic recovery from the pandemic.
Moreover, business activity in the Euro-zone shot ahead at its
fastest rate in 21 years in July as the economy went into full throttle with loosened COVID-19 restrictions. In addition, the
Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said the U.S. central bank is
nowhere near considering a rate hike despite the optimism over
the U.S. economy. This weakened the DXY in turn supporting
the shared currency.
On the last trading day, the German inflation data unexpectedly
jumped to 3.8% YoY in July. This was the first time since August
2008 that the annual inflation rate in Europe's largest economy
rose to above 3%. The European Central Bank recently raised its
inflation target to 2% and said it would tolerate temporary over or undershooting of the target before stepping in.
So far, on friday spot is down 0.05% at 1.1879 and a breakdown of 1.1751 (monthly low Jul.21) would target 1.1704 (2021 low Mar.31) en route to 1.1602 (November 2020 low). On the upside, the next hurdle is located at 1.1908 (weekly high Jul.30) followed by 1.1975 (weekly high Jun.25) and finally 1.2004 (200-day SMA).
