Hot forecast for EUR/USD on 08/09/2022 The single currency has come close to parity, and this has nothing to do with the third assessment of the eurozone GDP in the second quarter. Which, by the way, turned out to be somewhat better than the previous one, which showed a slowdown in economic growth from 5.4% to 3.9%. According to the latest data, the growth rate slowed down to only 4.1%. So Europe is a little further away from recession than previously thought. But the euro did not immediately start rising after the release of the data, but only after a couple of hours. This happened amid growing confidence that the European Central Bank will raise the refinancing rate by 75 basis points today. It is quite obvious that this is the main driving force and the central event of the week. More important than this is the upcoming board meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee. The very fact of raising the refinancing rate, although it will lead to further growth of the single currency, is not strong. Yes, and not long. In fact, much more important is what ECB President Christine Lagarde will say during the subsequent press conference. If Lagarde announces a further significant tightening of monetary policy, then the euro's growth will be quite serious and prolonged. Otherwise, everything will return to normal pretty quickly, and the single currency will again fall below parity. Change in GDP (Europe): The EURUSD currency pair tried to overcome the control value of 0.9900 for three consecutive days, but the market participants failed to stay below it in the daily period. As a result, there was a price rebound, which led to a reverse move towards the parity level. Technical instruments RSI H4 jumped above 60 due to the pullback stage. This is the highest indicator since August 12. In the case of further growth in the value of the euro, there may be a premature overheating of long positions. At the same time, RSI D1 is moving in the lower area of the indicator, which corresponds to a downward trend in the medium term. Moving MA lines on Alligator H4 have primary intersections with each other. This signal emerged due to a sharp price momentum during the past day. In this case, it indicates a slowdown in the downward cycle. The Alligator D1 indicator line is directed downward, which corresponds to the direction of the main trend. Expectations and prospects Despite the possible overheating of long positions in short-term time periods, speculators can still send the euro up due to the results of the ECB meeting. In this case, local price movement above 1.0050 is not excluded. In the work, it is worth considering that speculative hype is not the basis for a stable price movement. In the event of a slight change in the mood of speculators, mass consolidation of long positions is possible, which will lead to a reverse price movement. Comprehensive indicator analysis in the short-term and intraday periods indicate an upward signal, due to the rollback stage from the value of 0.9900. In the medium term, technical instruments, as before, are focused on a downward trend.
