ECB plays safe, euro suffers.

“ECB to raise rates substantially rather than drastically.”

European Central Bank’s (ECB) latest policy meeting was rather disappointing, with EUR/USD plummeting more than 100 pips after the fact. In the announcement, ECB decided to raise interest rates in July, but to do so with only 25 basis points increment. The decision was perceived as dovish when compared to pre-meeting comments that signalled for a more drastic move. During the press conference, ECB President Christine Lagarde stated that the decision was met “unanimously” and emphasized that economic conditions in EU warrants for an era of tightening ahead.

ZFX Analyst’s Comment

Although EUR/USD has recently closed below 200-MA line, the recent support of 1.0623 would be a challenge for bears to take over. Thus, a close below the support level would provide a pickup in bearish momentum for further weakness in the near-term.
