Yesterday, the pair EUR/USD traded near the level of 1.3500; however at the end of the day slightly rose above 1.3525. After the publication of NFPR, the pair is likely to correct upward and after that will continue downward movement. Among today’s news attention should be focused on interest rate decision of ECB and on press-conference by Mario Draghi.
