EUR/USD is as snug as a bug in a rug around 1.36

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Moscow) - EUR/USD opened the day at 1.3609, slid to 1.3597 low, and fell asleep right there.

USD wears the pants

Draghi was mild, Draghi was dovish, but not aggressively dovish. He didn’t try to convince the market the QE is coming, but did hint on additional stimulus in case it was required. Thus, probably the key factor of yesterday’s plunge of the pair was not the EUR weakness, but the USD strength. Non-Farm Payrolls came out much better than expected, and even the April, and May readings were revised higher. Thus, the USD may be the one to determine the pair moves. The just released weaker than expected German Factory orders were completely ignored by the market. The downside is limited by 1.3582, and the upside – by 1.3652 resistance level.
