Deviation impact on EUR/USD
Readers can find FX Street's proprietary deviation impact map of the event below. As observed the reaction is likely to remain confined between 10 and 40 pips in deviations up to 1.5 to -3, although in some cases, if notable enough, a deviation can fuel movements of up to 50 pips.
How could affect EUR/USD?
Haresh Menghani, Analyst at FXStreet explains, “With short-term technical indicators gradually drifting into bearish territory, a convincing break below the 1.2200 handle now seems to prompt some aggressive selling and turn the pair vulnerable to continue sliding in the near-term. Below the mentioned support, the fall is likely to get extended towards the 1.2100 handle en-route 1.2070-65 strong horizontal support.”
“On the flip side, recovery attempts from current support area might now confront fresh supply near the 1.2250-55 region and any subsequent up-move seems more likely to be capped at the 1.2300 handle,” Haresh adds.
