Results of the last trading day EUR / USD:
On Friday, July 27, trading on the dollar ended in the red. He fell on the entire market losing all positions, earned during the European session. Sales followed after the publication of US GDP for the II quarter.
These coincided with the forecast, so buyers started closing long dollar positions ahead of the weekend. It loads the principle of "buy expectations - sell the facts".
I believe that after the release of the Fed's strong report will continue to gradually raise rates to prevent the economy from overheating.
