Euro continues to quench the dollar due to successful post-pandemic recovery. Coronavirus cases have dropped significantly, thanks to the widespread COVID-19 vaccination.
As per remarks of ECB board member Fabio Panetta, there is no chance of inflation showing an upward trend in the coming month.
However, as market sentiment goes, the pair might touch the level of 1.25 in the next few weeks. So, the guess is, should investors hold the euro for a little longer, or is it time to sell? Well, the forecast depends upon the US Core Consumer Price and PMI readings that will be released next week.
Strong numbers will certainly help the USD to disrupt the smooth rally of the Euro and give some relief to the greenback investors.

CNY/USD: How close is the yuan recovery?
At the start of the week, traders barely noticed the Chinese yuan, but currency began to show a strong recovery in the latter part of the week, resulting in the increased focus on the yuan.
The weak dollar let the yuan reach the highest level in the last three years. China’s economy is rapidly recovering after the pandemic, helped by foreign investment and an increase in exporters that hit a record high since last year.
Analysts are forecasting the positive momentum of the China economy in the future. Conversely, the rise in inflation and unemployment continues to fear the US economy. Therefore, if you are eyeing yuan, then it’s your best time to buy.
GBP/EUR: Is it time to buy GBP or sell it?
GBP and EUR are two of the most stable currencies globally and are considered less volatile. The economies of both economies are closely related and dependent on each other.
However, the question remains, is it time to invest in GBP against the Euro when investors are a little cautious due to the uncertainty around the UK. Despite stable retail sales reported in April, the numbers have slowed down in May.
Therefore, the Confederation Board of British Industry (CBI) is forecasting the slow growth of the UK economy in the coming months.
The pair is forming an ascending triangle, thus giving some hope to the GBP investors.
