The EUR/USD exchange rate continued rising this week after Sunday's French election. It has risen for five straight days and is sitting at its highest point since June 12th ahead of a key statement by Jerome Powell Powell statement

The EUR/USD pair continued rising after an election in France left the country in unchartered territory as the parliament became divided into three blocs. Left-wing parties won in major places, dealing a blow to both Emmanuel Macron and the far right.

Therefore, traders are still assessing the implications of the election on the economy and the overall governance. For one, any left-wing coalition will be reluctant to deliver the spending cuts Emmanuel Macron has advocated for the past few years.

The pair also rose as traders assessed the next Federal Reserve actions after a series of economic data showed that the economy was slowing. Two reports by the Institute of Supply Management (ISM) showed that the manufacturing and non-manufacturing PMIs moved to a contraction zone in June.

Therefore, Jerome Powell's testimony which will start on Tuesday will shed light on what the bank expects. The pair will also react to the upcoming US inflation data that will provide more information on whether prices are falling/USD technical analysis
