The U.S. Dollar Index has recently made an attempt to gain additional upside momentum above the resistance at 90.30 but this attempt yielded no results, and the U.S. Dollar Index moved back to 90.30. If the U.S. Dollar Index settles below this level, it will head towards the support at the 90 level which will be bullish for EUR/USD.

EU will not release any notable economic reports today so foreign exchange market traders will wait for the release of NY Empire State Manufacturing Index from the U.S. which is projected to decline from 26.3 in April to 23.9 in May.

Traders will also continue to monitor the general market sentiment towards U.S. dollar. Inflation fears have recently provided some support to the American currency but Fed officials managed to calm markets, and the dollar moved closer to multi-week lows. However, inflation remains a significant threat, so markets will remain very sensitive to inflation reports.
