The Jackson Hole symposium concluded on Saturday. The meeting of central bankers lasted from Thursday to Saturday, but the most important speech was scheduled for Friday. That’s when Fed chief Jerome Powell spoke.
Powell’s words confirmed predictions that stock market players will not receive very positive signals. The Fed must continue its tightening policy until the lowering of inflation becomes a reality. As he stated, this may hurt, but failure to act decisively would mean even bigger problems in the future.
After such a hawkish speech, most currencies lost to the dollar. EURUSD lost nearly 100 pips after the Fed chairman’s speech. However, the beginning of the current week shows a slight positive rebound , there are signs of an upward correction.
From the fundamental side, we can explain this by more hawkish statements from ECB members, we are increasingly hearing about the need to raise interest rates at 50 bps and maybe even 75 bps. We can expect such decisions at the next meeting of the European Central Bank, which will be held on September 8.
On the technical side, too, we have signals indicating a change in sentiment on the EUR. On EURUSD yesterday an upward divergence appeared, today it continues, and in the nearest future the buyers’ target could be the support and resistance level 1.01. If the buyers’ pressure proves strong enough and 1.01 is overcome, the next target would be the supply zone starting around 1.0170. The situation is similar on EURCAD, where we also have signs of an upward correction.
