Review and dynamics
Approaching meeting of the US Fed causes tension and increased volatility in the currency market. Recent conflicting statements by the Fed officials about the interest rate hike in September create turbulence in the financial markets. Starting from yesterday, a “quiet mode” comes into force, which means that prior to the meeting on 20-21 September, it is banned to comment and make statements regarding the monetary policy.
Meanwhile, investors are preparing for the raise in the interest rate in the USA, which will trigger sales in the stock market and the rise in the USD. The head of the Federal Reserve Janet Yellen said at the end of August at the Economic Forum, that, it is believed that in the long- term when the increase in the interest rates by the Central Bank indicates good performance of the country’s economy and the companies.
At the same time, the facts that the ECB left QE program unchanged and neutral speech by ECB President Mario Draghi last week, have caused the sale of the European assets. European stock index EuroStoxx50 sharp fell yesterday and continue to decline today at the beginning of European trading session. EuroStoxx50 has broken important support levels of 3010.0 (Fibonacci 38.2% to the decline since December 2015 and EMA144 on the daily chart) and 2995.0 (EMA200 on 4-hour chart) and is now at the lower line of the ascending channel on the daily chart.
