As for the FOMC, the zero-interest rate policy remained unchanged until 2023, and it was generally as expected. As with last month’s FOMC summary, buyback of USD became dominant. EURUSD temporarily fell to 1.179 and then closed the US market around 1.1815.
On EURUSD H1 chart below, we can see “Gartley” pattern and occurrence of bullish regular divergence. For short term view, adjustments might continue, but the long-term upside uptrend view is unchanged, and buy on dips stance is unchanged. I will keep an eye on the movement of GBP. Today MPC will be held.
