NATO Statement Makes EURGBP Drop?

“At the moment, we have not seen the withdrawal of Russian troops”

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg denied that Russia had withdrawn troops from the Ukrainian border. He said the military alliance saw no sign that Moscow was reducing its troop numbers around Ukraine. NATO accuses Russia of misleading the world by saying it is pulling troops to base. In contrast, NATO reports Moscow is adding as many as 7,000 more troops near the Ukrainian border. Will war break out? But for sure, the value of the Euro has continued to weaken since the beginning of 2022.

ZFX Analyst’s Predictions

NATO’s statement about Russia adding troops to Ukraine’s border appears to be in the world’s spotlight. It is not impossible that next week Russia will launch an invasion of its neighboring countries. It should also be borne in mind that Ukraine has assistance from the United States and its allies. From a technical point of view, the movement and structure of the EURGBP itself continues to show weakness. EG could head towards the strong daily support at 0.83200 in the near term.
