EUR/USD Forecast: Neutral-To-Bearish, Could Accelerate Its Slump On A Break Below 1.2060

EUR/USD Current Price: 1.2105

  • Joe Biden has become the 46th US President, Wall Street hits record highs.
  • The focus shifts to the European Central Bank monetary policy decision.
  • EUR/USD is neutral-to-bearish, could accelerate its slump on a break below 1.2060.

The EUR/USD pair closed the day in the red around the 1.2110 level, with the market sentiment still in positive mode but the greenback trading unevenly across the FX board. The absence of first-tier macroeconomic data seems to be leaving investors clueless on where to go next. Meanwhile, stocks surged in Europe and the US, but Treasury yields were unable to catch directional strength.

The EU published the final versions of its December inflation, which was confirmed at -0.3% YoY. In the US, Joe Biden has been sworn as the 46th President in a quiet ceremony. This Thursday, the European Central Bank is announcing its latest decision on monetary policy. The central bank is expected to leave its policy unchanged this time, although policymakers will likely paint a gloomy picture due to the persistent setback attributed to the ongoing pandemic.
