Greenback pulls back, euro recoups losses.

29-04-2022 09:51

“US GDP slumped by 1.4% during the first quarter.”

Greenback shies away from its recent 20-year high as risk sentiments began to improve on the final day of trading for the month. Yesterday, investors were delivered with disappointing news as recent economic data shows significant contraction in terms of economic growth. Preliminary reading of Gross Domestic Product for first quarter came in at -1.4%, a major pullback when compared to 6.9% from the previous quarter. The slump was due to rising Omicron cases in the US at the start of the year, dampening economic activities across the board. Nonetheless, market expectation towards 50-basis point rate hike from Federal Reserve remains intact, evident from latest data on CME (Chicago Mercantile Exchange) FedWatch Tool. Price of goods continues to climb during the quarter, as GDP price index deflator rose 8% after jumping 7.1% in the last quarter.
