    Default 14th June 2018 - The turn is on ECB to send its hawkish message

    EURUSD is still well boosted ahead of the ECB's meeting which will be followed as usual by a press conference of its president Mario Draghi. It looks now the turn is on the ECB to send a hawkish message about its monetary policy and still existing QE plan, after the Fed had taken its expected decesion to hike the Fed fund rate by another 0.25% to 1.75%. On continued improving of the labor market and rising faster than expected of the inflation pressure in US, The Fed referred to the possibility of tightening by another 0.50% by the end of the week not only 0.25% as what has been predicted in the beginning of this year. EURUSD has dipped down shortly to 1.1725 following this highlighting from the Fed which was not away from the market expectations, before rising back to the current levels close to 1.1825 by the ECB's interest rate decision. The ECB is widely expected to keep today the main refinancing rate at 0, the marginal lending rate at 0.25% and the deposit rate unchanged at -0.4% respectively. The ECB is expected to represent economic analyses showing rising of the inflation pressure boosted May EU CPI flash reading to rise to 1.9% year on year which is the highest scale of rising since April of last year. While the economic activities are still evolving running along with increasing demand in the EU labor market thanks to the EU accommodative policies. However the ECB is expected to warn about the rising trade tensions between US and EU. ECB may refer to Italy which has about $2.3tr of debt and has a new government tending to take expansion measurements by highlighting the importance of the structural reforms and the fiscal austerities measurements to sustain the financial situation of the EU countries and raise their creditability. The press conference of Draghi is expected to show shifting of the ECB language toward tightening by providing clearer message about the end of QE and the beginning of raising rates standing below zero currently. As he assured previously on the importance of monetary policy adjustment which will remain predictable. Draghi's last message about QE was to keep "the ECB current €30 billion monthly pace of buying is intended to run until the end of September 2018, or beyond, if necessary" leaving the available option for stimulating to only extending the time of the program not the size of it too. The markets have seen in this language barely change to hawkishness.
