EUR/USD: euro could go either way
On Wednesday, trading on the euro closed down and the British pound closed slightly up. There were some fluctuations in both directions on the pairs at 17:40 EET when an act of terrorism was committed in London. A car on Westminster bridge drove onto the pavement, hitting a number of pedestrians as it made its way to the parliament building. 5 people have been confirmed dead, including the assailant, who was shot by police, and another 40 were injured.

EUR/USD: price hugging the balance line
On Monday the 20th of March, trading on the euro closed slightly up. A tall upper shadow has formed on the daily candlestick. The exchange rate fell yesterday from a maximum of 1.0777 to 1.0725. What is strange is that the euro depreciated on the back of growth on the EUR/GBP cross and a slide in US bond yields. The low buyer activity seen is surely connected to the televised French presidential debate that took place last night. They're important for the French, who look yet to decide on a favourite candidate.

EUR/USD: bearish divergences have formed on the AO and CCI indicators
The euro/dollar closed up on Thursday. Before trading closed in Europe, the rate was trading within a 40 point range of 1.0706 to 1.0746. In the first half of the day, the euro's growth was constrained by the dynamics of the EUR/GBP cross, which started falling after the minutes from the Bank of England's meeting were published. Just as trading in Europe closed, the EUR/GBP rate closed the gap on the GBP/USD as the EUR/GBP cross grew.
