There has been a lot of talk about inflation in the US and it has peaked with expectations (6%And 8.1%) lower than the previous data, which was manifested in market prices by the decline in US 10-year Treasury yields below 3% And a little weaker dollar. The Russian oil embargo should not be forgotten in the medium and long term because the negative impact on growth in the European Union may constrain the gains of the Euro even if inflation in the United States begins to decline.
From an EU perspective, ECB officials including Villeroy, Mueller, Elderson and Nagel commented this morning that rate normalization should begin this summer soon after the APP ends.

The daily EUR/USD chart hasn’t changed much since my last update with the US CPI likely providing the much needed catalyst for price movement out of its consolidation movement. Confined between the swing low in April at 1.0471 And 1.0600Inflation reading in line or below expectations may push EUR bulls into action and breakout 1.0600 resistance area.
The current levels historically (2015 and 2016) have been a major inflection point, but the big drop in prices on the EUR/USD pair shows what could be the end of a mature move down before some sort of corrective play up. Don’t mistake this as a complete reversal as I’m still pro-dollar but in the short term there is a great opportunity for the upside to fix.
