The European Central Bank announced a stimulus package to boost growth and inflation

The EUR/USD pair is closing a second consecutive week with gains at around 1.1070, retreating from a high at 1.1109. A scarce macroeconomic calendar kept the pair in a dull range during the first half of the week, also the wait and see stance ahead of the ECB monetary policy decision on Thursday. One done, one to go, as the US Federal Reserve will be announcing its decision on monetary policy next Wednesday, September 18.

EUR/USD is trading above 1.10 as markets gear up for the all-important decision by the Federal Reserve. The world's most popular currency pair is locked in a tight range but may explode when the central bank decides.

The Technical Confluences Indicator is showing that EUR/USD is capped at around 1.1075, where a dense cluster of lines awaits it. That includes the Bollinger Band 15min-Upper, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month, the previous daily high, the Simple Moving Average 50-15m, the SMA 10-1h, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month, the SMA 10-1h, and more.

Further above, it faces only weak resistance. The initial target could be 1.1151, which is the convergence of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-month, the Pivot Point one-week Resistance 1, and the BB 1d-Upper.

Looking down, significant support awaits at 1.1048, where a juncture of levels awaits it: the SMA 50-4h, the SMA 10-1d, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day, the SMA 5-1d, the SMA 100-15m, the SMA 100-1h, and the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week.
