EUR/USD Back Below 1.1100 After Dire ZEW Sentiment Data

The single currency is back under pressure after the latest ZEW data highlighted the effect the spread of coronavirus has had on economic sentiment. Markets were expecting the figures to be bad, but todays released missed even the most pessimistic forecasts, leaving the Euro at risk of even further falls.

“The slump of the ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment was to be expected. The economy is on red alert. The financial market experts currently expect to see a decline in real gross domestic product in the first quarter, while also considering a further drop in the second quarter to be very likely. For the whole of 2020, the majority of experts currently expect a decline in real GDP growth of approximately one percentage point as a result of the corona pandemic,” saidZEW President Professor Achim Wambach.

While data is still important, the actions of the ECB and the Eurozone’s further response to covid-19, will be the driver of future price action.
