Current trend

At the yesterday’s meeting, the Fed increased interest rates in the US from 0.25% to 0.5% that significantly pressured the pair. In addition, the pair was pressured by poor data on IFO Indices from Germany that came out worse than forecasts.

Due to expectations of a gradual interest rate increase in the US and its stable economic recovery, the pair will remain under pressure in the medium term.

Today attention needs to be paid to the US labour market data, and tomorrow – to the Markit Services PMI.
