Study: the Euro crashed yesterday. Bearish for Euro and bullish for USD


The Euro crashed yesterday on the ECB’s meeting. This is the worst 1 day crash since June 2016 (Brexit).

Previous market studies demonstrated that the U.S. Dollar would probably head higher in the next few months and the Euro would head lower, which seems to be happening right now. Yesterday’s EURUSD crash exceeded 1.7% in one day, which is a lot for forex.
Here’s another market study that comes to a similar conclusion.
Here’s what happens next to the Euro when it crashes 1.7% in 1 day (excluding overlapping cases in the past 6 months).
