FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/USD pair continues to trade in a side-ways manner as we progress towards the early European morning, as the EUR bulls continue to appreciate the extension of the period of low rates in the US, as unannounced by the Fed yesterday.

EUR/USD retreated from multi-week peaks

The EUR/USD pair trades -0.25% lower at 1.1406, finding support at 1.1390 levels since early Asia. The main currency pair extends its corrective slide into the European morning, although remains in flat-lining near 1.14 handle, as markets keep the calm after the FOMC aftermath, still mulling the Fed’s verdict.

On Thursday, the EUR/USD pair jumped some 100 pips to fresh three-week highs at 1.1442, as the US dollar was heavily dumped after the Fed kept interest rates on hold for the 55th straight meeting, raising serious concerns over lower inflation and global economic uncertainties on the financial markets, stemming from China.

Looking ahead, traders are expected to remain cautious amid a data-dry trading calendar ahead while markets continue to assess the Fed’s decision.
