    US Dollar much weaker on FOMC

    The index has rapidly left behind the 95.00 key support and is now navigating fresh 2016 lows in the 94.80/70 band as market participants keep adjusting to yesterday’s dovish announcements by the Federal Reserve.

    The index is up 0.91% at 94.84 facing the next support at 94.19 (monthly low Sep.18 2015) followed by 93.83 (monthly low Oct.15 2015) and finally 93.30 (monthly low Jun.18 2015).
