Market Analysis

Indeed, Draghi said the recalibration of the stimulus will main accommodation, adding that the ECB needs to be patient and persistent. EURUSD dove over 0.6% in logging a three-session low at 1.1881. EURJPY and other euro crosses also took a hit, but the dollar pairing bore the brunt with the buck itself a more attractive proposition following the hawkish guidance from the Fed last week. USDJPY settled near 112.00 after posting highs just above 112.50 during Tokyo trading, reportedly on relief that North Korea hadn’t launched any more missiles over the weekend, and with BoJ recommitment to ultra-accommodative monetary policy last week continuing to reverberate.
