On Forex, EUR/USD hasn’t been able to get above 1.3580 yet. Today the Federal Reserve Chief’s speech and a decision on the key interest rate will be published. Their content may define the pair’s further trend. However, judging from the technical picture, it will be much easier for EUR/USD to go down.
