31st March : (cancel position)
The EUR has begun advancing against a number of major currencies due to a number of economic reasons. Firstly, Russia has promised during peace talks to reduce its attacks on Kyiv. The shift in tone in the Russia-Ukraine peace talks suggested “the conflict may be moving to a more localized phase with some of the more extreme tail risk scenarios reducing in probability,” analysts from JPMorgan said in a note to clients on Wednesday that recommended buying EUR/USD. Whilst there is some optimism over the Moscow-Kyiv talks, inflation reports fanned expectations that rising costs, which were accelerated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, would force Europe to rate hikes sooner rather than later, supporting the euro. Preliminary data shows that German annual inflation rose to its highest level in more than 40 years in March as prices of natural gas and oil products soared. Spain’s flash CPI data for March showed prices rising at their fastest since May 1985.
The EU is set to provide the next round of inflation data on Friday with the forecast set at 6.6% up from 5.9% YoY. Any result inline or above the forecast will put upside pressure on the EUR. The CHF may also see some downside pressure as the initial shock of the Ukraine and Russia conflict fades.
