    · EURUSD massive falling which started during Draghi's press conference resumed today to lead to breaking of key supporting level at 1.1087 which could hold since last Sep. 3 in a new dovish technical signal.

    · EURUSD is now in its second day of being below its daily Parabolic SAR (step 0.02, maximum 0.2) which is reading today 1.1487.

    · After this falling, the pair is still below its hourly 20-SMA,its hourly 50-SMA and its hourly 100-SMA and also its hourly 200-SMA.

    · Over the daily chart, the pair is now also below its 20-SMA,its 50-SMA, its 100-SMA and also is below its 200-SMA.

    · The pair daily RSI-14 is still in the neutral territory reading now 39.494 but its daily Stochastic Oscillator (5, 3, 3) which is more sensitive to the volatility is having its main line now in the oversold area below 20 reading 10.763 and also its signal line which is reading now 13.315 showing probability for correcting over the short term.

    · While the rebound from here can be faced by resisting level at 1.1386, before facing 1.15 which could hold previously on Oct. 15 to drag the pair down, after peaking at 1.1495.

    · It should be mentioned here that the energy prices played a key role in directing the inflation in EU even by a transitory way helping the ECB to prompt its QE plan in the beginning of this year, before watching inflation rebounding to the positive territory helped the common currency to get back some of what it lost in the first quarter of this year.
