The overnight implied volatility on EURUSD forex option contracts exploded to its highest level since January 23 as currency markets prepare for potentially formidable price action. EURUSD traders are likely anticipating the European Central Bank’s rate review and follow-up commentary from President Mario Draghi to cause substantial price swings in the currency pair.

Although the ECB looks set to reiterate its zero-interest rate policy, the Eurozone’s head central banker may signal further willingness to support the bloc’s economy as downbeat data continues to disappoint. A tone that is interpreted as relatively dovish could put pressure on the Euro and send the currency to multi-week lows against the USD.

EURUSD spot prices evidently coiled into a symmetrical triangle pattern between the currency pair’s February high and low. A breakout would suggest a continuation of the longer-term downtrend. EURUSD’s one-day trading range derived from overnight implied volatility implies that prices will likely remain between the 1.1376 and 1.1260 handles.
