EURUSD News and Forecast
“…it all comes from the top. They could have easily stopped the plague, but they didn’t” – one of President Donald Trump’s tweets accusing China not only responsible for coronavirus but also for a disinformation campaign. The novelty is that the president also points fingers at his counterpart Xi Jinping – whom he used to praise until recently.
Trump’s barrage of tweets has contributed to souring the mood, weighing on stocks, and boosting the safe-haven US dollar. Lawmakers in Washington are also ramping up their efforts to curb Beijing’s influence, with a unanimous vote in the Senate and Democrat-led legislation in the House. The anti-China sentiment is rampant in America, and both parties are heightening their rhetoric ahead of the elections in November.
Another minor downer came from Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, who rejects extending the extraordinary unemployment benefits beyond July. The reluctance to further stimulate the economy from the fiscal side – contrary to what the Federal Reserve asks – is also contributing to the reversal.
The change in sentiment cut off the EUR/USD’s rally, which sent the world’s most popular currency pair to nearly 1.10 on Wednesday – a two-week high. The greenback was previously sold off on the back of the Fed’s commitment to continue loosening. The meeting minutes from the latest rate decision reiterated this message. Officials at the bank explored ways to enhance forward guidance and did not mention negative interest rates.
The euro previously shrugged off efforts by the “Frugal Four” – Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Sweden – to halt the Franco-German plan. According to the agreement between the continent’s largest countries, the EU budget would be expanded by €500 billion to support pandemic relief efforts. Investors seem to bet that the Berlin-Paris axis will get its way, after years of dysfunction.
