Fundamentally speaking, although Fed’s rate hike coming to an end, the U.S. dollar index continues to rise. According to data released by the CFTC last week, the short positions fell to the lowest level in eight weeks. Short-covering is fueling a rebound in the U.S. dollar index as hedge funds continue to trim their short positions.

During the tightening monetary cycle, the spread of long-term bonds between the United States and Europe drives arbitrage funds to buy dollar and sell euro. In the short term, the spread deliveries adjustments to the exchange rate.
Technically speaking, the EUR/USD daily cycle completed a breakout of last Friday’s low yesterday. The market has a high probability of ushering in a downward trend in the next two days.

The exchange rate fell below multiple moving averages and was blocked by the 61.8% golden ratio Fibonacci retracement position yesterday. Today there is a certain probability of stepping back on the moving average or consolidating prices, but if today’s market continues to fall below yesterday’s low, the euro will remain weak against the dollar.
