Today we get to hear from FOMC members Bullard, Kochelakota, Tarullo and Esther George.

EUR/USD is steady in Friday trading, taking a breather after Wednesday’s huge gains, as the Federal Reserve did not take any action regarding QE. The pair is trading in the mid-1.35 range in the European session. In economic news, the US posted strong data on Thursday, highlighted by a solid Unemployment Claims release.

EURUSD broke to the upside in this week and closed above 1.3500 figure on a daily basis which suggests more upside in days ahead. The reason for this outlook is a sharp rally from 1.3320 low which appears to be a third leg within a third based on the personality of the move. Recently a third leg has stopped in 1.3520-1.3585 resistance area so we suspect that contra-trend movement is wave iv) that could look for completion around 1.3480 figure.
