The EUR/USD had a variety of trends yesterday, before the Federal Reserve meeting. As expected, the regulator increased the key interest range by 25 basis points up to 2.50%. However, the investors were disappointed to hear the key interest rate will be increased only two times in 2019 instead of three times. You should open positions from the key support and resistance levels of 1.14000 and 1.4400.
