Disappointing inflation data keeps EUR/GBP bearish

This image is no longer relevant

EUR/GBP remains bearish due to disappointing consumer inflation indicators from France and Germany. The former reportedly declined by 0.1% month-over-month in May, while the latter fell from 7.2% to 6.1% year-on-year. This could convince the European Central Bank to reduce the pace of tightening, which would undermine euro.

As for pound, expectations of additional interest rate hikes by the Bank of England continue to grow, as stronger-than-expected consumer inflation data support such actions by the bank. However, the strong rise of dollar restrains bulls from aggressive bets, helping limit the losses in EUR/GBP.

Current market signals lean in favor of bearish traders, suggesting that any attempt at recovery may be seen as another opportunity to sell.
