The Analytical Overview of the Main Currency Pairs on 2017.07.27

The EUR/USD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 1.16429
  • Open: 1.17330
  • % chg. over the last day: +0.02
  • Day's range: 1.17137 – 1.17774

The Fed, as expected, left the key interest rate at the previous level of 1.00-1.25%. The Central Bank reported weak prospects of the inflation growth, which is currently below the target level of 2%. These comments put considerable pressure on the US currency. The US dollar sharply weakened against the majors. The EUR/USD currency pair formed a local resistance of 1.17750. The round level of 1.17000 is already a "mirror" support. We expect important economic reports from the United States.

Statistics on the US economy on 2017.07.27:
  • – A report on orders for durable goods at 15:30 (GMT+3:00);
  • – The balance of foreign trade in goods at 15:30 (GMT+3:00);
  • – The number of initial claims for unemployment benefits at 15:30 (GMT+3:00).
