EUR/USD. February 3, 2021 Euro near 2-month lows

The euro continues to decline paired with the dollar, reaching 1.20. The last time the single currency traded at such levels was at the beginning of December 2020. The weak rates of vaccination in Europe and the ECB's dissatisfaction with the high rate of the European currency remain negative factors for the euro. The regulator noted that it is closely monitoring the dynamics of the exchange rate and does not exclude a decrease in the rate on deposits, if this will help to accelerate inflation.

Macroeconomic indicators of the euro area are also not encouraging. Although earlier data on GDP for the IV quarter showed a decrease in the economy by 0.7% (q / q) and by 5.1% on an annualized basis, which turned out to be better than forecasts (a decrease by 0.9% and 5.4%, respectively).

Today we should pay attention to the report of the American labor market from ADP, as well as the index of business activity in the service sector ISM. Experts do not expect strong indicators, which may provoke a weakening of the dollar. Moreover, today's statistics may influence the decision in the Congress on incentives, which, if the package of assistance measures is approved, will entail further sales of the American currency.
