EUR/USD Update – Hoyer Warns of Exuberant Expectations of EIB’s Role in Recovery



Good day forex traders and readers.

It’s once again the weekend and I hope you had a great week of forex trading.

In the previous EUR/USD forecast we explored the critical region of sub 1.3 and the impact of the European Central Bank cut of the Euro Zone interest rate.

This week brought about more bearish pressure as the EUR/USD crept into the 1.28 sector. Having said so, the currency pair attempted to recovery and is now back above 1.29. The 1.3 will likely remain a resistance which the EUR/USD must overcome before any further correction can be expected.

The plan follows a 120 billion-euro growth boost pledged in 2012 that was based on a 10 billion-euro increase in the EIB’s capital and assumptions about how much investment that would unleash.

Schaeuble and Sapin in their proposal urge Hoyer to come up with new ideas to boost the EIB’s “value-added,” while at the same time preserving the bank’s financial strength. The EIB and national development banks such as Germany’s KfW Group should “act as a bridge vis-a-vis market gaps.”

“The objective is to remedy market failures or deficiencies and to ensure a real subsidiarity of its actions vis-a-vis the private sector, increased […]
