On the Forex market yesterday, the euro went up against the dollar due to the news that the ECB and the Bank of England had decided to keep the interest rates unchanged. However, later US jobless figures were published, and the rise stopped. Now it’s quite risky to enter the market – the pair is positioned in the middle of the triangle.
