EUR/USD (4 Hours)

EUR/USD Retracement Amidst Fed Sentiment

The Federal Reserve’s apparent conclusion on interest rate hikes following subdued inflation data triggered a Dollar retreat. However, the USD showcased resilience post-data release, backed by a rebound in US yields. While the negative Dollar sentiment prevails, the USD’s strength is evident against a backdrop of comparatively robust US economic performance. This correction in EUR/USD is viewed as a temporary adjustment in light of ongoing market expectations regarding the Fed’s stance on rates. The coming US economic data could further impact the pair’s movement.

XAU/USD  Surges Amidst Weaker Dollar and Economic Reports
