EUR/USD Forecast and Trade Ideas for June 10 2016

Previous trading day:

During yesterday’s trading session US dollar gained against Euro and other major currencies, supported by further decrease in initial jobless claims and increase in wholesale inventories, finishing day around 1.13 level.  Such move is perceived by market experts mostly as short term trend correction rather than trend reversal, in light of forthcoming FOMC meeting next week. During previous few weeks several FOMC members supported further rate increase during June / July meetings, however, market expectations are much more on side of July rate hike considering general uncertainty over Brexit referendum and its global consequences.

In a speech held on economic forum in Brussels, ECB President Draghi called again on joint effort of EU governments to boost growth and inflation in support to already implemented quantitative easing measures by ECB. Reliance only on monetary measures, without conducting structural reforms, might put Euro Zone at risk of continuously slow economic growth with very weak productivity, as noted by Draghi.
