EUR/USD 4-Hour Chart

EUR/USD has spike around 50 pips or so after the Fed announced a 0.50 bps rate cut in response to the coronavirus.

Currently, the pair is struggling at the previous wave high of 1.1185.

If this level breaks the bulls could look to target the next resistance zone of 1.1239.

It seems that the market has been correct in pricing in the rate cut over the past week or so since Jerome Powell gave an interview last Friday.
