EUR/USD Rebounds After Comments From Draghi
EUR/USD: Long For 1.1035
- ECB President Mario Draghi said the ECB is aware of the growing costs to the financial sector of its ultra-loose monetary policy and would rather not have to keep negative interest rates for too long.
- Draghi defended the ECB’s policy of aggressive bond buying and ultra-low rates from accusations that it has led to growing inequality and a shift of financial income from stronger to weaker economies But he also acknowledged complaints by banks, particularly in Germany, that low rates are eating into their profits.
- Draghi’s comments were likely to further lengthen the odds on another cut in the ECB’s deposit rate of -0.40%.
- The EUR/USD rebounded after Draghi’s comments. We expect a recovery move to be continued to 1.1035. We got long at 1.0905. Check other trading strategies from GrowthAces.com in the tables below:

It is usually reasonable to pide your portfolio into two parts: the core investment part and the satellite speculative part. The core part is the one you would want to make profit with in the long-term thanks to the long-term trend in price changes. Such an approach is a clear investment as you are bound to keep your position opened for a considerable amount of time in order to realize the profit. The speculative part is quite the contrary.
You would open a speculative position with short-term gains in your mind and with the awareness that even though potentially more profitable than investments, speculation is also way more risky. In typical circumstances investments should account for 60-90% of your portfolio, the rest being speculative positions. This way, you may enjoy a possibly higher rate of return than in the case of putting all of your money into investment positions and at the same time you may not have to be afraid of severe losses in the short term.
