However, markets showed little response to this decision, as it was widely expected. The news that actually moved the currency rate was disclosure of some details of the new tax reform.
From technical point of view, the weakening of the buck resulted in formation of a junior ascending channel. However, the exchange rate is likely to fail to surge to its upper boundary, as that path is blocked by a combination of the weekly PP at 1.1674 and the falling 200-hour SMA near 1.1682.
The likelihood of a rebound is also supported on daily chart where the pair additionally faces the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level at 1.1679. Plus the average market sentiment remains 59% bearish.
