A support was formed at the 1.1085 level. After yesterday’s rebound, a reversal pattern appeared. For a reversal to occur, a breakthrough through at 1.110  is necessary. According to our estimates, customer activity should begin to increase after 13:00 (Moscow time). Since the trend line was broken, according to the forecast, we are waiting for recovery to 45th degree – 1.1129. We do not forecast much higher growth now, in light of Thursday’s planned ECB meeting and its head Christine Lagarde’s press conference. She will not be delighted with the strengthening of the euro.

We also look at the dynamics of the EURGBP pair. The British currency is under pressure due to growing expectations that the Bank of England will lower the basic interest rate. The cross will support buyers of the euro.
