Forex: EUR/USD muted on ECB inaction

The single currency remained indifferent after the ECB failed to deliver any surprises in today’s statement, leaving the lending benchmark intact at 0.75%, matching the broader consensus.

Market participants would now focus their attention on the upcoming press conference by President Mario Draghi.

As of writing, the cross is advancing 0.40% at 1.3019 with the next resistance at 1.3075 (high Mar.5) ahead of 1.3101 (high Mar.1) and then 1.3143 (Tenkan Sen line).
On the downside, a break below 1.2970 (low Mr.7) would bring 1.2966 (2013 low Mar.1) en route to 1.2929 (low Dec.11).
