The EUR/USD pair traded in a sideways manner around 1.18 in Asia, having clocked a three-week high of 1.1840 yesterday.
The markets have been caught off guard by ECB’s hawkish talk. Hence, the spread between the 10-year US-German yield spread could drop further in the EUR-supportive manner. As of writing, the spread stands at 244 basis points – the lowest level since May 15.
Focus on G7 meeting
The news is doing the rounds that French President Macron has called on G7 leaders to resist the US drift towards protectionist policies. So fears are on the rise the G7 meeting could dissolve into bitter fighting over trade. Hence, the pair may find it hard to scale the weekly high of 1.1840.
