The market were not predicting any move in rates from the Fed but there were some outside bets of a rate rise being projected in late 2020. The dot plot has now confirmed that none of the Fed officials see that happening. 

Looking at the 4-hour chart below the market headed straight for the support zones and 107.00 so far has stalled the bears. If this level breaks then the pair could be heading for the black support line lower down at 106.37 and beyond that 106.00.

All off the indicators are looking bearish as the Relative Strength Index dips below the 30 oversold line once again and the MACD histogram hold firmly in the red. The MACD signal lines are now widening below the zero line which is also a bearish sign.
