EUR/USD: Consolidatory moves before big events
Tomorrow is the Fed’s announcement and the day after’s the ECB.
EUR/USD Technical analysis, overview, strategies, and levels
Whatever price gains EUR/USD enjoyed yesterday were largely undone as both the US dollar and the euro relatively underperformed against most of the remaining FX majors. More talk (and in some cases, action) of reopening and setting dates for resumption of production has been the theme as of late. But when it comes to this pair's price, the dual central bank announcements tomorrow and the day after may play a larger role with the US Federal Reserve tomorrow and the European Central Bank (ECB) the day after. The daily technical overview may be consolidatory after weeks of relatively little intraday movement, but expect pivot points to weaken significantly during both events. As for today's economic calendar, it's light for the Eurozone but heavier for the US with CB's consumer confidence expected to drop, and a few other low-impacting items.
