EUR/USD 5-Minute Chart


EUR/USD spiked to 1.1980 as U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) increased 156K in August, while the Unemployment Rate unexpectedly climbed to an annualized 4.4% even as the Labor Force Participation Rate held steady at 62.9% per annum. Nevertheless, the market reaction was short-lived amid reports the European Central Bank (ECB) will wait until December to decide the fate of its quantitative easing (QE) program.

Broader outlook for EUR/USD remains constructive as the pair preserves the upward trend from earlier this year, and the shift in market behavior may continue to unfold throughout the remainder of the year especially as market participants scale back bets for three Fed rate-hikes in 2017. Nevertheless, the ECB’s September 7 meeting may fuel a larger pullback in the euro-dollar exchange rate should President Mario Draghi and Co. merely attempt to buy more time.
