EUR/USD Fails to Maintain FOMC-Infused Rally

March 22, 2018

EUR/USD attempted to extend yesterday’s FOMC-infused rally today but failed. The possible reason for that were manufacturing and services reports for the eurozone released by Markit during the current trading session. Meanwhile, today’s US data was good for the most part.

Initial jobless claims rose from 226k to 229k last

EUR/USD Climbs After FOMC Keeps Dot Plot Unchanged

March 21, 2018

EUR/USD jumped today following the policy announcement by the Federal Open Market Committee.

EUR/USD Declines for Third Day as Markets Prepare for Fed Hike

March 16, 2018

EUR/USD fell for the third day in a row despite turmoil in the US government. The dollar got some support from today’s macroeconomic reports, which were good for the most part, with the exception of the housing data. But the most important reason for the greenback’s rally was anticipation of an interest rate hike from the …

EUR/USD Drops on US Data, Fed Policy Outlook

March 15, 2018

EUR/USD dropped for the second day today, basically erasing gains caused by the previous two-day rally. One of the reasons for the drop was good US data. Another one was the fact that traders considered an interest rate hike from the Federal Reserve next week almost guaranteed.
