EUR/USD looks to data, Draghi

Spot managed to rebound from yesterday’s low in the 1.1270/65 band in response to the bout of downside pressure that hit the buck after yesterday’s dovish tone from Chief J.Powell.

In fact, Powell turned unexpectedly dovish on Wednesday after he said that rates are ‘just below’ the neutral rate. His comments came opposed to those made last month, when he assessed that those same rates were still ‘long from neutral’.
