On the back of a dovish tone from the Fed, the Greenback dipped against other major currencies. Focus now shifts to Friday’s NFP employment report. 

Key Points

  • While the Fed is expected to keep interest rates the same, Chair Powell says a hike is unlikely to be the next rate movement. 
  • This slightly dovish tone cost the Greenback against other major currencies. 
  • The price now hangs within the 1.07431 support and 1.06681 resistance.

EUR/USD Daily Price Analysis – 02/05/2024

A mixed tone from Fed Chair Powell had an overarching sense of dovishness, causing the USD to lose 0.43% against the EUR on Wednesday. 

During the FOMC interest rate decision meeting, it was announced that the interest rate would remain unchanged within the range of 5.25%-5.5%, keeping borrowing costs higher for longer. When asked, Fed Chair Powell said there was a higher chance the next interest rate move would not be a hike and that it would take longer to hit the 2% inflation target. 

There’s a slightly bearish tilt on the pair according to the 50-day EMA and RSI on the daily chart. The RSI line has sort of stagnated below the mid-level, while the EMA line still hangs above the price. But when you zoom out on the daily chart, you’ll see that it has mostly been a sideways tussle for over a year now.
