EUR/USD Mid-Session Technical Analysis for September 7, 2020The direction of the EUR/USD is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the short-term Fibonacci level at 1.1826.
The Euro is trading lower against the U.S. Dollar on Monday in a holiday-thinned trade as traders shifted their focus to the European Central Bank’s meeting on Thursday. The ECB meeting comes after the Euro marked a two-year high at the beginning of the month.
As far as the ECB is concerned, traders don’t expect a change in policy but are focusing on the message policymakers deliver on their inflation forecasts especially since a report showed last week that Euro Zone inflation had turned negative.
Last week, the Euro was pressured after board member Philip Lane said that the appreciation of the Euro “does matter” for monetary policy, highlighting the potential for further easing from the bank.
At 10:46 GMT, the EUR/USD is trading 1.1820, down 0.0020 or -0.17%.
