Deviation impact on EUR/USD
Readers can find FX Street’s proprietary deviation impact map of the event below. As observed the reaction is likely to remain confined between 3 and 30 pips in deviations up to 3.0 to -4.2, although in some cases, if notable enough, a deviation can fuel movements of up to 60 pips.
How could affect EUR/USD?
According to Haresh Menghani, Analyst at NDDFX, “from a technical perspective, the overnight break through the descending wedge pattern was seen as a key trigger for bullish traders. A subsequent move beyond 1.1300 mark might have already set the stage for a further near-term appreciating move. Hence, some follow-through strength, towards reclaiming the 1.1400 mark, now looks a distinct possibility. Above the mentioned level, the pair is likely to aim back towards testing YTD tops, just ahead of the key 1.1500 psychological mark.”
“On the flip side, any meaningful slide below the 1.1300 mark now seems to find decent support near the 1.1270-65 region. Failure to defend the mentioned support might prompt some technical selling and accelerate the fall further towards the 1.1200 round-figure mark,” Haresh adds.
