Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) Impending Directional Breakout
All eyes are on the ECB, which will set interest rates later on Thursday. The markets are not expecting anything dramatic from policymakers, with rates expected to remain at 0.00%. In June, the ECB decided to end its massive bond-purchase scheme by the end of the year, which has amounted to some 2.6 trillion euros. However, the ECB is playing it very cautious regarding any interest rate hikes, with the ECB saying it would maintain record-low rates “through the summer” of 2019.
Trade tensions between the EU and U.S have dampened growth forecasts for the eurozone, although the Juckner-Trump meeting has considerably improved market sentiment. The ECB could tweak its guidance, but is unlikely to make any changes to current monetary policy.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 42.4824. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 13 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 45.43. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 42 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -109.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a buy 5 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 0 period(s) ago.

Our trend forecasting oscillators are currently bearish on EUR= and have had this outlook for the last 1 periods.
