The pair EUR/USD lost around 80 pips during the press conference of Draghi, after the decision of the interest rate of the ECB, but was able to find support at 1.0850.
At this time, the EUR/USD is traded at 1.0867, below the 0.34 percent on the day. The price action in the pair was dominated by Mario Draghi, ECB president, gave some remarks during the first half of the american session.

However, the bearish momentum could not be sustained as the greenback began to lose strength in the midst of macro data weak of the united States and fell on the yields of Treasury bonds of the united States.

To the upside, resistance could be seen at 1.0950 (April 27), 1.10 (psychological level) and 1.1065 (8 November).
