FED Shakes the Markets – Bull Dollar

FXOpen


Wednesday was a big day for traders and investors.
Like expected, the FED maintained another US$ 10 Billion reduction in its bond buying monthly.
Interest rates remain unchanged and the dollar gained muscle with Yellen's hawkish tone.

US Stock market closed lower that day and currency pairs like EURUSD or USDCHF are dominated by bears.
According with Yellen, interest rates would continue to increase during next six months and QE shouldn't end till this time.

So, what is the outlook for Euro now?

FED Shakes the Markets – Bull Dollar


No doubt that EURUSD will continue to be traded by bearish traders and we can see 1.3800 at support zone.

The main peak reached by euro was placed at 1.3966 – Resistance level.
There is no reason to believe that this currency pair will follow bullish trend for next week.

Our outlook: Bearish

Resistance levels:

R1 – 1.3918
R2 – 1.3898

Support levels:

S1 – 1.3831
S2 – 1.3800
