Bullish sentiment EUR/USD

Event to watch out for today:

12:00 GMT+3. EUR - GDP Volume Change

15:30 GMT+3. USD - Consumer Price Index


The Euro-dollar pair is trading with a bullish bias around 1.0815 in the early hours of Asian trading on Wednesday. Later, markets may shift to cautious sentiment ahead of key economic data releases from the Eurozone and the US. Wednesday's highlights will be the first reading of the Eurozone's first quarter gross domestic product (GDP) and the April US consumer price index (CPI).

On Tuesday, Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Jerome Powell said inflation is falling more slowly than expected and the CPI data gave more reason to keep rates higher. Powell added that he believes it is unlikely that the central bank will need to raise interest rates further, even if there is less chance of a rate cut. In addition, Kansas City Fed President Jeffrey Schmid said inflation remains too high and the U.S. central bank still has a lot of work to do. These hawkish comments could boost the US Dollar (USD) and put pressure on the major pair in the near term.

However, later in the day, US CPI data is due to be released, which could influence the Fed's interest rate decision at the next meeting. Annual core CPI inflation is expected to fall to 3.4% in April from 3.5% in the previous reading. Core CPI inflation is projected to fall to 3.6% in April from 3.8% previously. If the upcoming CPI data meets expectations, it could lead to the prospect of a rate cut. This, in turn, could lead to a decline in the dollar and serve as a tailwind for EUR/USD.

Trading recommendation: Trade predominantly on Buy from the current price level.
