    EUR/USD attention to the ECB

    It is ECB day! The pair will remain under pressure as a dovish tone is expected from President M.Draghi at his press conference, where the current QE programme most likely to be under the microscope in light of the stagnant inflation figures in the region.

    Other than the ECB gathering, EMU’s flash Consumer Confidence for the current month is due, followed by the releases in the US calendar: Initial Claims, Chicago Fed index, Existing Home Sales and CB’s Leading Indicator.
