Forex. Euro/Dollar (EUR/USD) trading forecast for today, April 12

At the end of last week, the Euro/Dollar (EUR/USD) exchange rate fell back to the support of 1.1900.

U.S. inflation data on Friday showed stronger-than-expected numbers. The producer price index has reached its highest level in recent years. Wells Fargo analysts note that the increase in the indicator in March is a key sign of steadily growing inflation. Given the supply chain bottlenecks, the Fed is likely to keep monetary policy unchanged and watch for a sustained recovery in 2021. The bank expects to see a further increase in inflation to the levels of last year, although it is possible that the strengthening will be temporary. As initial activity in the service sector slows, Wells Fargo expects to see a slowdown in monthly price growth and a drop in annual inflation growth by mid-2022.

In the first quarter, the Euro declined against the Dollar by about 4%. Investors have reduced their deposits in the EUR amid fears of economic recovery in the Euro zone. While the ECB will maintain its stance on soft monetary policy, the situation in the US looks more uncertain on this issue. The agreement on the EU bailout fund was a truly breakthrough decision, but the failure to implement it and to actually pay out the funds remains a cause for concern. The acceleration of vaccination rates in the coming weeks will add to the positive side of the Euro Zone's fairly strong leading indicators. The Euro will continue to struggle against the strong Dollar in the short term, but a moderate recovery is expected in the second half of the year, as the dynamics of economic growth will become more active.

Forex pair Pound/Dollar is trading just above the level of 1.3900.No major changes are expected, as the market has been stuck in a neutral sideways range for the past two months. According to analysts at Credit Suisse, the pair's growth will begin only when the strong level of 1.4000 is broken. The nearest support is located at 1.3800. Quotes cannot leave the range due to a combination of opposite factors. The US and UK economies are recovering at a fairly rapid pace, the latest indicators show stable growth. There are concerns about a recovery in UK inflation, but this is not yet enough for a full-fledged downtrend.According to the Bloomberg review, the forex pair Pound/Dollar exchange rate will remain at today's values until June. But some analysts confidently predict a decline in quotations. Credit Agricole recommends selling the pound against the dollar in the short term, one of the reasons is the political risk over Scottish independence. Analysts at Barclays Bank declined a call to open a long position on the pound against the euro due to potential pre-election volatility. UBS lowered its forecast for a select group of UK bank bonds to neutral and warned that a long position on UK credit instruments could prove unprofitable due to the risk of a referendum. The odds show that a repeat of the events of 2014, when Scotland voted to remain united, remains a distant prospect. However, market participants put this scenario in their estimates. GBP/USD trading signal for today May 6, 2021 In the forecast, forex pair Pound/Dollar is expected to decline to the supports of 1.3900, 1.3875 and 1.3850.

On Wednesday, Euro/Dollar fell to the support level of 1.2000 on Forex.ADP data showed that U.S. private sector employment increased by 742,000 jobs in April. The number was high, but still below market expectations of 800,000. ADP analysts noted that the labor market continues to accelerate and grow, showing the strongest performance since September 2020. As the economy recovers, there is an increase in the number of jobs. The US dollar has weakened significantly over the past 9-12 months, but the latest data allows us to expect a change in the trend in the very near future.Nordea economists expect the euro / dollar rate to resume falling, as an improved macroeconomic environment and stronger inflation signals may convince the Fed to change the course of monetary policy earlier than expected. The United States may surpass all countries in terms of economic growth in 2021, which will eventually lead to a stronger dollar. First, Treasury bonds may still yield higher returns than similar securities from other countries. Second, the Fed is likely to respond to high growth rates with slightly tougher policies, possibly as early as this summer. A change in interest rate expectations may also lead to a reversal of the euro/dollar pair in the second half of this year. According to Nordea forecasts, the quotes will reach the range of 1.1500–1.1600. EUR/USD trading signal for today May 6, 2021 The forecast assumes a decline in the Euro/Dollar on Forex to the levels of 1.1975, 1.1950 and 1.1930.

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) fell to the level of $54,100. Ethereum (ETH) rose to the level of $3320, and the price of XRP fell to the support of $1.39. The total capitalization of the digital currency market was $2.22 trillion.The total volume of liquidations of short positions on derivatives on Ethereum has reached a new record. The impetus for this was the rise in the price of the second-largest cryptocurrency to a new historical high above $3,500. Over the past day, Ethereum has increased by 12.7%, and its capitalization has reached $405 billion. Over the past seven days, the asset has risen by 39%. According to CryptoQuant analysts, the selling pressure is significantly lower than at the peak of the previous growing market in 2018. On the Deribit derivatives exchange, for the first time in history, the volume of trading options on Ethereum exceeded the corresponding figure for Bitcoin. At the end of April, this ratio was 4.1 times higher for the first cryptocurrency.The Capital Dollar Foundation, together with a major consulting company, will launch five pilot projects to test the digital Dollar this year. The US does not yet have information on which tools are best suited for the development of state-owned digital currencies, so such an initiative will be aimed at collecting the necessary data. Despite the fact that the Fed is cautious about state-owned stablecoins, the regulator sees the need to test them, as this issue has become very relevant among central banks. Recently, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell once again said that it is much more important to work out the right strategy for launching a digital Dollar than to try to overtake the People's Bank of China, which has already tested the digital yuan several times, or other banks that have already launched their own digital currencies. Today, more than 60 countries are engaged in the development of state-owned cryptocurrencies, and the United States does not plan to lag behind them in development. Bitcoin, ETH and XRP trading signals for today May 5, 2021 The forecast assumes a drop in the price of Bitcoin to the levels of 54000, 53700 and 53500 Dollars.

Forex. WTI Oil trading forecast and signal for today May 5, 2021
WTI crude oil reached a price value of $65.15 per barrel.Global markets gained almost 2% on the day. Traders' risk appetite and positive expectations for oil demand support the news about the quarantine in Europe. The European Commission's recommendations to ease restrictions on entry from third countries may be agreed by the end of May, so that they can come into force as early as June. Overall, expectations of an easing of quarantine restrictions support the prospects for economic recovery and oil demand.Market participants also expect an active automotive season this summer in the United States and Europe, which should support the growth of oil demand. At the same time, the unfavorable situation in India and a number of other Asian countries has a restraining effect on prices. So far, the Indian authorities are trying to limit the introduction of local restrictions to avoid an economic downturn, but some experts are already noting signs of weakening demand for oil in the country.In addition, the likely lifting of US sanctions on Iran may become a limiting factor for oil prices, which will allow the Iranians to significantly increase production and export of raw materials. Before the introduction of sanctions in 2018, the volume of production in the country exceeded 3.8 million barrels per day, and in the middle of last year, due to the pandemic, it fell to 1.9 million. At the moment, this figure has recovered to 2.5 million, but the growth potential is still there. If the negotiations on the nuclear deal are successful, Iran will be able to increase oil exports, which will partially offset the efforts of OPEC+ to balance the market. WTI Oil Trading signals for today May 5, 2021 The forecast assumes a decline in the price of WTI oil to the levels of 65, 64.75 and 64.50 USD per barrel.

Forex. GBP/USD trading forecast and signal for today, May 5, 2021
The British Pound again declined in price against the US Dollar. On Tuesday, the quotes fell to the level of 1.3890.The index of business activity in the UK manufacturing sector rose to the level of 60.9 points-this is slightly higher than forecasts. As a result, GBP lost a minimum in price, despite the strengthening of demand for USD. The country's economy is recovering rapidly, and this allows the Pound to hold its position. Only an insufficiently rapid increase in inflation in the UK can lead to new measures of the Bank of England to ease monetary policy, which will cause the collapse of the Pound. It is the uncertainty of the regulator's further actions that keeps GBP from further growth.The U.S. economy fell slightly short of forecasts, growing 6.4% year-on-year in the first quarter. A full business recovery and further stimulus will lead to double-digit growth in the second quarter. In this case, US GDP growth will be higher at the end of the year than it would have been before the pandemic. The US economy has already received $5 trillion in stimulus thanks to measures taken by Presidents Trump and Biden. In the future, it is planned to increase spending by another 4 trillion Us Dollars, which will be partially offset by tax increases. These volumes are equivalent to about 40% of the country's GDP, so it is not surprising that the US economy shows such results. Trading signals for the GBP/USD forex pair for today May 5, 2021 In the forecast, the GBP/USD is expected to decline to the support levels of 1.3870, 1.3850 and 1.3825.
