Key quotes 

“The ECB should not be considered a game changer for EUR/USD - if anything merely a source of volatility.”

“For now, EUR/USD looks to trade with a downside bias even if Fed’s new repo operations might alleviate pressure a tad.” 

“EUR/USD OIS basis widened sharply yesterday. The initial market reaction was positive (tighter) after NY Fed opened an USD500bn 1M and 3M repo operation.”
