1.3815 fell yesterday under bulls’ pressure. EURUSD’s price has rallied again and got near 1.3870 near the end of the trading day, right after the release of the FOMC meeting Minutes.

After the publication of the US labor market indicator the price has set a high at 1.3730 and a low at 1.3672. The week has … [Read more...]

1.3700 was hit after less than a week. The ECB maintained the minimum bid rate at 0.25% and reiterated that it will be held at this level or lower for a prolonged period of time. At the ECB press conference nothing new was brought on the table in the first part. The only clear thing is that a strong Euro will not help the EU economy to recover and will not sustain a growth in inflation. Mario Draghi, ECB’s president, said that the Central Bank is considering unconventional measures like … [Read more...]

As I was expecting yesterday, the volatility rose around US publications. The release of the ADP did not surprise the market since it came around expectations, but triggered optimism in what concerns the NFP release from Friday.

The US Factory orders registered 1.6% rise. These two releases have triggered dollar buying. The EURUSD … [Read more...]
