EUR traders waiting for Draghi's speech - FXStreet

Key quotes

"Trading midrange, EUR traders await for Draghi speech in a couple hours, and any clue he may give on economic policy."

"Market expectations are on some comments over the result of the first round of TLTRO last week, and maybe a good bunch of criticism coming from German Bundesbank President Weidmann after the weekend statements."

"Risk on the pair remains to the downside, albeit Draghi’s wording can lift intraday volatility; technically, the 4 hours chart maintains the bearish tone with price well below a bearish 20 SMA now capping the upside around 1.2880, and momentum retracing from its midline after correcting oversold levels: some follow through above mentioned resistance may see price extending up to next resistance at 1.2920, where sellers are expected to defend the level."

"On the other hand, below 1.2810, the bearish continuation may extend quickly down to 1.2770, in route to 1.2740 critical midterm support."

EUR/USD hovers around 1.2850

After hitting fresh 14-month lows at the weekly opening, EUR/USD staged a mild recovery but lacked momentum to break above the 1.2870 area as investors await a speech from ECB President Mario Draghi.
