CCI: -152.9550

The EUR / USD currency pair, after the minimal upward correction, resumed a strong downward movement and completed the Murray level "4/8" - 1.1475. Retail sales for the euro area, published the day before, in annual terms exceeded the forecast value (1.8% vs. 1.7%). Although this factor had no special significance for the market. But the ADP report on the change in the number of workers in the private sector, which also exceeded the forecast, caused additional demand for the US dollar. All indices of business activity across the States, published yesterday, also turned out to be better than market expectations and further increased the desire of traders to buy the dollar. Thus, it can be said that macroeconomic statistics for America had a strong impact on the market. No important news is scheduled for Thursday, October 4th. However, there is every reason to assume a further decline in the pair, since the demand for the dollar is now extremely high. The key question now is what will Donald Trump do with the new round of strengthening the national currency? As he has repeatedly pointed out, he does not need a strong dollar and damages the country's economy. However, the position of Trump is not too worried about traders, they continue to invest in the currency of the country, whose economy shows the highest results.
