SHORT EURUSD: ECB POLICY DECISION & DRAGHI SPEECH HIGHLIGHTS

FX:EURUSD   Euro Fx/U.S. Dollar
IMO Draghi was dovish on the margin as expected - once again reiterating the ECB commitment to targets with " If Warranted, Will Act By Using All Available Instruments". Further, he was very pessimistic on many fronts, especially the ECBs key target inflation saying "Inflation Rates Likely to Remain Very Low In Next Few Months" and " Risks to Growth Outlook Remain Tilted to Downside".

All in all this reaffirms my bearish EUR view and supports my medium term short EURUSD             traded posted last weekend. Going forward, if low inflation persists the ECB has made it quite clear that it will take action "using all policy tools available", such a statement is very dovish/ bearish .

In the broader view, Draghis dovishness should support risk markets today and help then shrug off the losses they made on the back of the Kuroda misinformation that repeated quotes from 3wks ago - which the market took as new hawkishness from the BOJ Governor.

My favourite nearterm trade now is seeing USDJPY             trading back to 107 by 5pm GMT thus holding my bullish view of the risk recovery taking us to 107, then 109 then 111/112 before reversing over the next few weeks. And I expect stock indexes to outperform safe havens on the day (where both trade flat now after safe havens initially pulling away post kurodas reiterated comments/ error from BBCR4).

Thank you for the highlights. I share the same bearish view of EURUSD, and expect this downtrend to continue for weeks to come.

What a round-trip made by this pair during Draghi's press conference! Admittedly I got caught out as my SL wasn't widened sufficiently.

My PLeasure sir. Yes for sure, its been the market consensus for some time but it is taking a while to materialise!

Yes it did tick up a abit but 80% of everyhting said was dovish so i think the upside we saw was shorts taking some profits. Ahh yes, i personally dont operate SL for that reason.
