EUR/USD Searches for Support as ECB Prepares Another Round of TLTRO

EUR/USD Searches for Support as ECB Prepares Another Round of TLTRO

EUR/USD tumbles to fresh yearly lows as the European Central Bank (ECB) plans to implement another round of Targeted Long-Term Refinance Operations (TLTRO), and the exchange rate may continue to search for support over the coming days as clears the 2018-low (1.1216).

The announcement suggests the ECB will continue to utilize its non-standard measures to counter the risks surrounding the euro-area as the central bank sticks to the zero-interest rate policy (ZIRP), with the Euro at risk of facing a more bearish fate over the coming months as ‘the Governing Council stands ready to adjust all of its instruments, as appropriate, to ensure that inflation continues to move towards the Governing Council’s inflation aim in a sustained manner.

In fact, President Mario Draghi & Co. may adopt a more dovish tone over the coming months as the ECB reduces its growth and inflation forecast for the policy horizon, and it remains to be seen if the Governing Council will restore the asset-purchase program as ‘the risks surrounding the euro area growth outlook are still tilted to the downside.’ As a result, the ECB’s dovish forward-guidance for monetary policy is likely to keep EUR/USD under pressure ahead of the next Federal Reserve interest rate decision on March 20, with recent price action bringing the downside hurdles on the radar as the exchange rate searches for support.

Failure to hold above the 2018-low (1.1216) raises the risk for a further decline in EUR/USD, but need a break/close below the Fibonacci overlap around 1.1190 (38.2% retracement) to 1.1220 (7.86% retracement) to open up the next downside region of interest around 1.1140 (78.6% expansion).

Will also keep a close eye on the Relative Strength Index (RSI) as it approaches oversold territory, with a break below 30 raising the risk for a further depreciation in the exchange rate as the bearish momentum gathers pace.
