FXStreet (Guatemala) - EUR/USD has risen from the support of the 20 SMA on the hourly chart reaching highs of 1.1380 so far in the US session at the end of the week.

The greenback has been in supply on the back of a not very convincing or committed FOMC from yesterday's minutes that disappointed the markets that are trying to find a definitive timing or absolute conditions that are deemed to be appropriate by the FOMC for lift-off.

Draghi sends mixed details to IMF

In respect to the EZ, Draghi recently submitted a statement to the IMF that was released over Bloomberg stating that risks to growth remain to the downside and the ECB is ready to use all the instruments available and can adjust QE accordingly to accommodate the slowdown although inflation is seen rising towards the year's end. A slightly mixed outlook, but risks are mounting to the downside and that should keep the euro in check. The lofty heights of 1.1400 may start to attract sellers if history is indeed anything to go by.
