Details of the economic calendar last July 20

Inflation in the UK is at a new 40-year high, which exacerbates the already difficult economic situation in the country. Consumer prices rose 9.4% year-on-year in June, the highest since 1982. There is a signal that at the upcoming meeting, the Bank of England will be forced to sharply raise interest rates.

Analysis of the trading charts on July 20

EUR/USD completed its consolidation at 1.0220/1.0270 by breaking its lower border, which resulted in a local downward movement towards the previously passed support level of 1.0150.

Meanwhile, GBP/USD’s correction slowed down within the area of the psychological level of 1.2000, resulting in an amplitude of 1.1950/1.2050, which indicates the process of accumulation of trading forces. This can lead to new price jumps in the pair.

Economic calendar for July 21

The key event this week is the meeting of the ECB, where rates could increase for the first time in 11 years. Analysts expect a 0.25% rise, which is good, but very little. A local reaction may occur, but quotes will return to their previous values. If the rate hike is above expectations, or the ECB hints at a more aggressive strategy, an uptrend may happen in EUR/USD.

And even though the US is also releasing a report on jobless claims, which is predicted to show a slight increase, it will be ignored because markets will focus more on the results of the ECB meeting.


Results of the ECB meeting – 08:15 ET

Release of US jobless claims report – 3:30 PM ET

ECB press conference – 08:45 ET
