The currency pair EUR / USD on Monday, December 31, began a downward movement, once again failing to overcome the resistance zone of 1.1440 - 1.1470. So far, for European currency, these exchange rate values are the limit. Indeed, there are no compelling reasons for a stronger strengthening of the euro. Especially considering the status of the holiday, the last 5-6 days. No important macroeconomic information was published these days. There have been no reports from the leaders of the EU and the ECB. Thus, traders in these could only sum up the results of the year and record profits on positions on the eve of holidays. Perhaps it was thanks to the fixation of profits on the "dollar" positions, of which in 2018 much more than the opposite was open, the euro went up at the end of the year. In general, the balance of power between the States and the EU has not yet changed dramatically. Yes, in 2019, the course on tightening the monetary policy of the Fed can be completed. At the same time, the ECB has finally completed the course of quantitative stimulation of the economy and may even start thinking about the first increase in the key rate in a long time. However, so far neither the first condition nor the second one has been fulfilled, and the situation with Brexit has not been resolved, the euro may continue to remain under market pressure. In the current situation, Donald Trump may come to the aid of the euro currency with yet another scandal or discouragement.
