EUR/USD daily chart 


After a steep selloff in early March, EUR/USD is consolidating near 37-month lows as the Fed announced, this Monday, its largest stimulus package ever. The Quantitative Easing (QE) can be basically limitless. “The Federal Reserve will continue to purchase Treasury securities and agency mortgage-backed securities in the amounts needed to support smooth market functioning and effective transmission of monetary policy to broader financial conditions,” the Fed stated.

EUR/USD continues to consolidate losses off monthly lows while trading below the main SMAs. As a matter of fact, the 50 SMA crossed below the 200 SMA which suggests more down. The correction is stabilizing near the 1.0800 figure as the range is nearing. The underlying tone remains bearish and sellers would be looking for an acceleration below the 1.0780 support en route towards 1.0723 and 1.0665 levels on the way down. Strong resistance can be expected in the 1.0850/80 price zone and at the 1.0950 price level, according to the Technical Confluences Indicator.
