EUR/USD depreciates after Fed hiked rates

FX:EURUSD   Euro / U.S. Dollar
35 0 0
"The Fed created some balance between expectation for higher rates in 2016 with a dovish overtone regarding the ‘gradual' pace. That's why you're not seeing a stronger rally on the greenback."
- Silicon Valley Bank (based on Bloomberg)

Pair's Outlook
EUR/USD             registered a mild decline on Wednesday, just after the Fed announced a decision to raise the key interest rate. Thursday trading, however, proves to be much more active from the side of the Dollar's bulls. The pair is expected to test the weekly S1 and 20-day SMA at 1.0845, which is the first major support for today. Another demand is created by 1.0808, namely the July low. Success here should imply an additional sell-off down to the 1.0724 mark (monthly pivot point ). Meantime, trading volume stays within historical norms, meaning market volatility is unlikely to be high.

Traders' Sentiment
The bulls have gained only one percentage point from 45% to 46% since Wednesday. Bullish pending orders dipped considerably in the past 24 hours, down from 40% to 29%.
