Euro hawk returns, greenback bruised.
“Lagarde indicates that negative interest rate may likely be gone by end of summer.”
Greenback extended its losses, hovering near one-month low after European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde delivered hawkish signal on yesterday. Lagarde commented that euro-zone interest rates may be tweaked to positive territory by the end of third quarter. Her comment was a significant departure from prior dovish tilt to keep monetary policy accommodative. Likewise, it also imply possible interest rate hike with at least 50 basis points in the coming months to combat stubbornly high inflation due to Russia-Ukraine conflict.
