EUR/USD Forecast and Trade Ideas for June 21 2016

Previous trading day:

Yesterday’s Asian bullish trading session influenced US dollar to open lower from previous day close, at level of 1.1380. Such move was supported by news on British referendum poll on side of Britons would not leave EU. This week will be marked with Brexit and some increased market volatility will occur as reflection of market sensitivity to any news regarding referendum outcome. It can also be expected that fundamentals will be more or less neglected during this week. It has been estimated that US financial industry will be mostly hit by Britons exit vote, as well as few other US large international corporations with business in London. As for US economy, Minneapolis Fed Chair Kashkari noted that Britons exit would have “moderate direct effect”, avoiding commenting on how many rate increases might be expected by Fed during this year. However, he noted that in case of higher Brexit impact, Fed might use all policy measures at disposal to diminish negative effects on economy.
