What’s up, traders.
The forex trading signals on EUR/USD have performed pretty well despite the market’s massive level of uncertainty. Today, we have opened another selling in trade to capture a quick correction in the direct currency pair.
EUR/USD dropped from a three-month high of 1.1257 but still traded above the 1.1200 level ahead of the key European Central Bank (ECB) monetary policy decision. From the American side, at 17:15 GMT, the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change for May was recorded as 2.76M job loss in comparison to 9.0M of expectations. AT 19:00 GMT, the ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI was surged to 45.4 against 44.2 of expectations and supported the US dollar. Though the data from America was also in support of the US dollar, the Euro got traction due to its risk-sensitive status amid the risk-on market sentiment and hence, pushed the pair to multi month highs on Wednesday.
On Thursday, the European Central Bank will announce its monetary policy decision, which is expected to include no change in interest rates, an expansion in the PEPP of worth 750 billion euros, more bond-buying from banks, etc. Market participants will be looking forward to it for fresh impetus.
