In his prepared statement, Draghi sounds a bit optimistic. He sees both the euro-zone economy and the global economy continuing their growth. This is not fully upbeat, as he also  mentions a high level of political and economic uncertainties. In addition, the continued growth is not predicted to exceed pre-crisis levels.

EUR/USD is not really cheered, extending its losses under 1.0570, a support line. Further support awaits at 1.0520, which is a double-bottom.

ECB President Mario Draghi is speaking in Brussels, but fortunately, there is no need to listen to the whole speech  as the statement is released in its entirety at 14:00 GMT. He will speak again two hours later, and once again, the report is published in the set time.

Euro/dollar has reached support at 1.0570 ahead of Draghi’s testimony.
