EUR/USD: Awaiting a Turbulent Week

The EUR/USD pair is expected to face a turbulent week ahead, with the US dollar gaining strength due to an increase in the US Consumer Confidence Index. Expectations of a rate cut by the European Central Bank (ECB) have also put pressure on the euro. However, the US Federal Reserve is taking a more stringent position, aiming for steady inflation towards the 2.0% target. The US Bureau of Labour Statistics' report showed a decrease in the Consumer Price Index and retail sales, leading to talks of a possible Fed rate cut. The US Bureau of Economic Analysis also reported a slowdown in US economic growth in Q1.

As the global financial markets brace for an eventful and volatile week, all eyes will be on key economic data releases and central bank meetings. The future movements of these currency pairs and cryptocurrencies remain uncertain, with various factors influencing their trajectories.
