EUR/USD drops to fresh lows near 1.0540 ahead of Trump’s presser

The EUR/USD pair ran through fresh offers on European open and dipper to session lows, although the bulls quickly regained control and sent the rate back towards the familiar ranges near 50-DMA, now located at 1.0555.

EUR/USD stuck in range

Currently, the spot trades -0.12% to fresh session lows of 1.0542, having posted a day’s high at 1.0566. A brief phase of upside consolidation seen in the greenback across the board leaves the main currency pair wavering in a narrow range near the mid-point of 1.05 handle, while a lack of fresh fundamental triggers also fails to provide any impetus to the spot.

The major, however, fails to find support from subdued treasury yields and sliding Asian equities, which help boost the sentiment around the funding currency euro. Markets turn cautious and refrain from placing any directional bet on EUR/USD, as the upcoming Trump’s press conference may stir huge volatility across the financial markets, having significant impact on the USD price-action for the upcoming months.
