Dukascopy Technical Analysis
"A minority of market participants expect new policy at this week's meeting [of the ECB]. As a result, inaction may be greeted by temporary relief from euro depreciation, but we would see any short-term rallies as a selling opportunity."
- Barclays (based on CNBC)
The pair has finally arrived at 1.31 (2013 Sep low and weekly S1), a key to the last year’s low at 1.2750 (also monthly S3).

Dukascopy Fundamental Analysis
"Unemployment is at the heart of the macro dynamics that shape short and medium-term inflation."
- Margio Draghi, European Central Bank President
The latest Eurostat data release reported no change in unemployment rate across 18-nation Euro bloc in comparison with the previous month, therefore staying at 11.5% mark, with 18.4 million jobless people. In comparison with the same period a year ago, unemployment decreased from 11.9%, or by 725,000 persons.
Expert Commentary
"We have already seen that net Chinese imports of gold from Hong Kong have dropped during the last few months with regards of ending gold demand."
- Bernard Dahdah, Precious metals analyst, on the gold

With regards to the situation in Ukraine, if it becomes more complicated or escalates further, we consider that this could lift the price of gold further up. On the longer term perspective, I suppose the price of gold would be thrust lower by improving U.S. economic indicators. >>
