Super Thursday is upon us. The ECB (European Central Bank) and the US Consumer Price Index (CPI) are both set to be released later today as the market is gearing up for an increase in the volatility in the market. The EURUSD and Gold are both feeling the pressure of the upcoming economic events as traders stick to the sidelines before committing to a direction. Bitcoin has seen some bullishness as it has managed to move above the Moving Averages on the 4-hour chart as traders hope to reach $40,000.
With that said, let’s find out how the markets are doing on June 10th, 2021.
Bitcoin to Target $40,000
Bitcoin prices rebounded from the weekly support level of $31,000, allowing more buyers to exit the sidelines and lend their support to the $40,000 rebound. This move caused Bitcoin to rise by 13% in 24 hours, and jointly promoted the growth of the entire cryptocurrency market. Polkadot is among the best performing crypto assets with 15% double-digit return. During the same period, Kusama rose 25.5% to $516, while Monero rose 14% to $277.
The MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) has flipped from the bearish to the bullish direction which gives strength to the recent recovery in BTC from $31,000 to $37,000. When the MACD line moves above the signal line, a buy signal appears. Note that a break in the positive zone (above the zero line) may encourage more investors to enter the market, adding that the SuperTrend indicator has also become bullish due to buy signals, indicating a reversal after a fairly low start of the week. The indicator moves below the price and changes its color from red to green. It’s worth noting that SuperTrend takes into account market fluctuations and follows the trend of assets.
A buy signal implies a general upward direction; therefore, investors should consider holding long positions. On the other hand, the RSI (Relative Strength Index) shows that the bullish momentum for support has faded. A correction may be made before the RSI hits the overbought area. Moving to the centerline indicates that the Bears are getting stronger. The 100 SMA and 50 SMA support must be protected to avoid other supports at $33,000 and $31,000 respectively.
Current Market Sentiment:Bullish
EURUSD Facing Negative Pressure
EUR/USD closed at a weekly gain of around 1.2165 and fell 0.10% the day before the European Super Thursday trading session. Increasing market concerns about the European Central Bank and the US Consumer Price Index (CPI) get mixed with the US-China negotiations as well as Brexit Talks, not to mention that the leaked G7 statement put pressure on major currency pairs at press time. Given the ambiguous game of inflation expectations in the United States and the early signals of the price list, the market divergence around today's CPI is even greater.
According to data from the St. Louis Institute, the US CPI is said to show a six-day downward trend at the end of Wednesday’s forecast. At the same time, the precursor to inflation has fallen sharply to its lowest level since April 20. In contrast, the latest data from the Core Personal Expenditure Price Index (PCE), the Fed’s preferred inflation indicator, has shown a strong record of inflation. The lack of synchronization between the US Federal Reserve System's (FED) policy during periods of rising inflation and the associated risks faced by the world's largest economy is weakening market sentiment before the release of key data.

Gold at Risk Ahead of US Inflation
Gold weakened for the third consecutive day on Thursday, testing the key 21-DMA support level of $1,883 before US inflation and the European Central Bank's major policy decisions. At the same time, the European Central Bank can signal the end of emergency asset purchases without changing its basic policies. The results of these two key events are likely to have a major impact on the financial market and the economy.
The price trend of the US dollar will fluctuate the price of gold. The decision of the European Central Bank is expected to be made at 11:45 GMT, and the US inflation data will be released at 12:30 GMT. So far, its trading price is between $1,887.43 and $1,899.07. The US dollar fell slightly on Wednesday, mainly focusing on the central bank and US inflationary pressures. The European Central Bank meeting and the upcoming US CPI will be the focus before the Fed announces the results next week.
Both the European Central Bank and the US CPI are scheduled to be announced on Super Thursday, and investors are holding a wait-and-see attitude towards major currencies. In fact, according to the DBCVIX USD Volatility Index, this is the worst volatility in foreign exchange transactions in more than a year.
