The EURUSD has been in a downtrend since a collapse of significant support 1.2102 on 07 June ’21 as some binary brokers lean towards the Greenback in the short term, as the Federal Reserve meeting strengthens the dollar.
The outlook for the general policy for both fiscal and monetary is key for investors and institutions at the moment, as speculations continue on the recent news of the Delta variant virus.
EURO and US News
This report shows the number of people who are unemployed during the previous month.
It is seen as a lagging indicator by traders, online brokers, and investors. However, they see the outcome as an important signal of the overall economic health because it has strong correlations with labor market conditions.
If the outcome is lower than expected, it is good for the currency, but a higher outcome than the forecast is not suitable for the currency. The forecasted outcome for unemployment is -20K, while the previous outcome was -15K.
A hint from a senior Federal Reserve official has informed the market participants that the US cannot afford a housing market boom and bust cycle which will make the financial market unstable.
This is the concern of the Central bank over the rise of the property prices. According to Eric Rosengren, the 2% inflation target is their goal so that they avoid the boom-and-bust cycle in real estate.
He noted that since the COVID-19 pandemic; the Federal Reserves has been buying over $40 billion in agency MBS per month alongside $80 billion in Treasury debt monthly as part of their asset purchase program since the pandemic. They intend to remove some of the sizeable monetary support for the economy.
