EUR/USD is climbing up. The move above 1.1950 will drive it to 1.2000. Let’s find out the main reasons why it may happen.
Have you noticed that the US dollar is traded at its lowest levels for almost two years? Indeed, most analysts have bearish forecasts on the greenback.

On Thursday the Fed made a dovish statement, which undermined the already fragile US dollar. Going a bit further, US officials claimed that they would allow the inflation and unemployment to run higher, which in turn will leave interest rates at low levels for years to come. As a result, that announcement has forced investors to sell off the low-yielding dollar.
According to ING, the main driver of EUR/USD will remain the dollar weakness for quarters to come. They emphasized that positive European news has never influenced the pair so significantly as the performance of the greenback.

However, it has managed to escape it, breaking through two support levels at 1.1850 and 1.1900.
