EUR/USD quotes continue to show negative dynamics. The trading instrument has updated local lows. The coronavirus epidemic continues to impact the global economy negatively. The number of infections in the world exceeded 1 million. The jobless claims in the US exceeded historic highs and counted to more than 6.6 million. Currently, EUR/USD quotes are consolidating in the range of 1.08000-1.08700. Financial market participants have taken a wait-and-see attitude before the publication of US labor statistics for March. We recommend paying attention to the difference between the actual and forecasted values. Positions should be opened from key levels.
