Euro/Dollar: trading forecast for the week of September 20-26, 2021
Euro/Dollar: trading forecast for the week of September 20-26, 2021 At the end of last week, the euro / dollar exchange rate fell to the support level of 1.1725. The latest US macroeconomic data showed a slight slowdown in the growth rate of inflation in August, but it continues to remain at an elevated level by historical standards.Traders expect that the US regulator will sooner or later be forced to start reducing the asset purchase program. The specific plans of the regulator may become clear as early as next Wednesday, and until that time, market participants will probably prefer not to open large positions. In the Eurozone, consumer inflation rose by 1.6% in August, and this fully coincided with the preliminary estimate. ECB Governing Council member Olli Rehn said that economic growth in the Eurozone remains strong, but still requires support from the regulator. There is no question of raising rates yet. Inflation in the euro area has strengthened recently, but the temporary effects are expected to disappear in 2022. Price growth is likely to decline again to levels below 2% in the medium term.According to the ECB representatives, with the right monetary and fiscal policy, a fairly strong recovery due to demand should lead to a return of inflation to 2% in the medium term. According to Wells Fargo analysts, in the next six months, the dollar exchange rate is likely to grow by 5% rather than decrease by a similar amount. A hawkish surprise from the Fed is much more likely than a similar surprise from the European Central Bank. This means that an increase in the rate differential between the US and Europe, and with it a strengthening of the US dollar, is more likely than a decline in the coming months. This view is based on the assumption that monetary policy and short-term rate differences are the most important factors of the currency markets at present.A 5% or more decline in the dollar is likely to require either a soft surprise from the Fed or a hawkish surprise from the ECB. Wells Fargo sees an extremely small risk that the European regulator will adopt a strategy that will significantly change the expectations of a rate change over the next six months. The Fed may refuse to tighten monetary policy if the data on inflation or employment in the US are significantly worse than expected. However, short-term rates in the US are already almost zero, which means that there is probably more room for an increase than for a decrease. This point of view may be incorrect if the foreign exchange market focuses on any other driver besides monetary policy. But even in this case, Wells Fargo doubts that any of the other factors will be able to tilt the balance of risks towards a significant fall in the dollar, rather than growth.The forecast assumes a further decline in the euro/dollar exchange rate to the levels of 1.1700, 1.1680 and ...

On Friday, euro/dollar currency pair lost more than 50 points
On Friday, euro/dollar currency pair lost more than 50 points EUR/USD fell to the level of 1.1725. The final data on consumer inflation in the Eurozone for August fully coincided with the preliminary ones. In annual terms, inflation increased by 3%. The base indicator strengthened by 1.6%. Inflation significantly exceeds the European Central Bank's target of 2%, but the regulator does not plan to tighten its monetary policy, considering the price increase a temporary phenomenon. After falling to the lowest level since 2011 in August, the indicator of consumer sentiment in the United States in early September improved moderately from 70.3 to 71 points. Analysts conclude from this that consumers are still pessimistic about the current situation. Despite the small increase, the rate is still lower than at any point during the pandemic. This remains a worrying indicator for the consumer outlook. Such a mood indicates weak spending. Retail sales in August were higher than expected, but the data mainly relate to the commodity sector and are not adjusted for price changes. Households maintain a stable financial position, taking into account the accumulated savings over the past year, but the rapid increase in consumer prices and the increase in the number of cases associated with the coronavirus will have a negative impact on spending in the short term.The forecast expects a further decline in the euro/dollar exchange rate to the levels of 1.1700, 1.1680 and ...

Forex trading: understanding the forex market
Forex trading: understanding the forex market The foreign exchange market is better known as Forex or FX. Trading in this market has become very popular in recent years. However, this is not the case - Forex trading raises a number of questions. For example: what is the foreign exchange market? Which currency pairs are best to trade? Is currency trading risky? Some of the answers to these questions will be found in this article.What is the Forex market?The foreign exchange market is also called the Forex market or the English foreign exchange market. It is simply a market where currencies are exchanged. According to the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), the foreign exchange market is the largest market in terms of total volume, with up to USD 5 trillion traded daily. It is not a physical place, but rather an electronic network where institutions or individuals trade with each other.The left-hand currency is called the base currency and the right-hand currency is called the quote currency. The second currency indicates the value relative to 1 unit of the base currency. For instance, the formula EUR/USD = 1.4000 implies that EUR/USD trades at 1.4000, i.e., 1 Euro has a value of $1.40. The first currency is always expressed in the second currency. USD/JPY at 110.50 means that one USD is worth JPY 110.50. EUR/USDWhat are the best currency pairs to trade?The best currency pairs to trade effectively depend on your trading style. If you have a short term strategy, for example, if you like to scalp, then the major currency pairs will be most profitable for you because of the low spreads.On the other hand, for a fundamental trader, smaller currency pairs will be of interest based on long-term analysis. The most profitable currency pairs may be those involving the Australian dollar, Japanese yen or Canadian dollar.The best forex currency pairs:EUR/USD: this pair has the lowest spread and is not very volatile.GBP/USD: this pair is interesting in terms of spreads and possible gaps, but it is quite volatile.USD/JPY: this pair has low spreads and offers some interesting possibilities. GBP/USDHow to get started trading currencies online?To start trading currencies online, follow these steps:- Choose a regulated and reputable broker- Choose a broker by the quality of execution of trading instructions- Decide on the trading style that suits you best (scalping, intraday trading, swing trading - you keep your position open for several days)- Determine the appropriate leverage effect in the stock market according to your strategy and experience.- Do not invest more than you can afford to lose.- Choose an intuitive, simple and secure trading platform such as MetaTrader 4.- Try all the above steps on a demo account, before trading live.GoldIs online currency trading dangerous?Like any financial investment, currency trading online is subject to risks. However, there are different methods to control these risks:- Determine the price of the currency pair at which you want to close a position if developments are unfavourable (for example, if you buy and the price falls, or if you sell and the price rises),- Determine the size of the trade so that your potential loss should not exceed 2-3% of your capital per trade,- Estimate your risk/return ratio (loss/profit) before you open the trade. By default you should have a greater potential for profit than loss, e.g. risk 50 pips, but try to make a profit of e.g. 100 pips.For proper money management and risk reduction it is advisable to start trading on a demo account and try things out on the dirt first. Such an account will allow you to trade in real market conditions, but with fictitious capital, so that you have a complete understanding of the foreign exchange market without any ...
