EUR/USD 1-Hr Chart on Thursday, July 28th.
European investors continue to monitor the energy crisis in the Eurozone which has significantly lowered their sentiment within the region.This week, energy ministers from all around the EU have met for a meeting and reached a compromise on the issue of reducing the consumption of "blue fuel" by 15% from the average level over the past five years.
The emergency plan, developed in the event of a complete cessation of energy supplies from Russia, assumes a decrease in the volume of gas used in the upcoming winter heating season, starting from August this year to the end of March 2023. The driver for the decision was the reduction in the volume of fuel transported through the Nord Stream gas pipeline to only 20% of its capacity due to technical work carried out on the gas turbine engine. However, many regions which are specifically reliant on heating during the winter months are worried about the rising energy bills.
As for the US dollar, the price is mainly being influenced by comments made by the Federal Open Market Committee after yesterday’s decision on the Fund Rate. Several experts and certain members of the Fed believe the rate increase will not be enough to reduce the rapid pace of inflation, as consumer prices in the States exceeded 9.0% in the latest month.

Exxonmobil Stocks 1-Hr Chart on Thursday, July 28th.
The stock market in general increased in value during yesterday’s trading session. The futures market also increased today, once more. The stock market has been supported by comments made by the Chairmen of the Federal Reserve who have advised that they are mindful of interest rate hikes pressuring the stock market and that they may even look to slow the pace of hikes if data allows the regulator to do so.
Also, a positive reaction from investors was caused by messages from the management of ExxonMobil about the discovery of two new fields offshore Guyana, which will increase production volume. It should be noted that the company is already producing more than 340K barrels of oil equivalent per day in the country; whereas it was previously believed that the company would not be able to reach such levels until the beginning of 2023.
