EUR/USD drops to key support

The US dollar pared losses following yesterday’s dovish FOMC meeting, with the EUR/USD easing back below 1.14 handle after almost reaching 1.1450 the day before. This popular currency pair has now reached the point of origin of yesterday’s breakout at around 1.1360/65. With US yields falling, we think there is a good chance the EUR/USD could bounce from around this area. Notice also that this area also converges with the broken trend line. If the bulls step in here, then rates could push towards yesterday’s high with 1.1450 being the main short term objective. However, if the EUR/USD goes on to break below yesterday’s low at 1.1330/35 area then this would be a bearish outcome.

Risk Warning Notice Foreign Exchange and CFD trading are high risk and not suitable for everyone. You should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite before making a decision to trade with us. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose. There is considerable exposure to risk in any off-exchange transaction, including, but not limited to, leverage, creditworthiness, limited regulatory protection and market volatility that may substantially affect the price, or liquidity of the markets that you are trading. Margin and leverage To open a leveraged CFD or forex trade you will need to deposit money with us as margin. Margin is typically a relatively small proportion of the overall contract value. For example a contract trading on leverage of 100:1 will require margin of just 1% of the contract value. This means that a small price movement in the underlying will result in large movement in the value of your trade – this can work in your favour, or result in substantial losses. Your may lose your initial deposit and be required to deposit additional margin in order to maintain your position. If you fail to meet any margin requirement your position will be liquidated and you will be responsible for any resulting losses.
