EUR/USD Clocks Three Months Low Over Dovish ECB, Eyes on U.S GDP
EUR/USD was knocked out yesterday as the market undigested ECB's reduced QE size by half and simultaneously extended the duration, thus maintaining the same level of stimulus as before. As a result, the pair was on a massive selloff wave dipping from 1.1836 high to 1.1640 low, 196 pips during only eight hours.
Today, EUR/USD extended losses at 1.1624 the months fresh lows with expectations for further dips in the coming days seeing the buck strengthening with 94.74 high today.
Fundamentally, the U.S Index is back with a sharper tone sending strong message for all currency rivals as the House of Representatives has passed a budget bill paving the way for Trump's so long waited tax cut plan. The only bump at moment fronting is who will inherit the U.S Fed, still nominees are mixed between Powell and Taylor.
Recent Reports has mentioned that current Yellen is ruled out, but rumors looms that Trump is worried about such scenario which could disrupt the hardy stock market rally that has taken place since his election. The Dow industrials have surged more than 30 percent from the low just a couple days before the Nov. 8 election.
Last but not least, Spanish tension with Catalans referendum still vows which add more pressure on the EURO.
Finally, this week risk event will be conducted with U.S GDP release today at 12:30 PM GMT with all eyes focused with expectations for a growth during third quarter. The data today will play significantly on the promised late U.S rate hike and DXY levels.

Comment: The market triggered a significant downside breakout from sideways congestion of the past month, opening up potential for a bear wave to 1.1480. Trade is poised for continuation selloffs.
