December 17, 2013

Current trend

The pair EUR/USD has been trading within a range of 1.3800-1.3720 for two weeks. Investors do not risk entering the market, waiting for the results of FOMC meeting. The regulator is expected to announce the curtailment of QE3 program, although members of FRS can’t find a consensus. Those who are pro-curtailment underline economic recovery and unemployment decrease to 7%. Their opponents remind about inflation growth and propose to prolong soft monetary policy.
