EUR/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: ECB President Draghi Speaks and 57 pips price movement
2016-02-04 08:00 GMT | [EUR - ECB President Draghi Speaks]
[EUR - ECB President Draghi Speaks] = ECB President Mario Draghi speaks at the Deutsche Bundesbank's Marjolin Lecture, in Frankfurt.
"So even in the face of common global shocks, central banks have the
ability to deliver their mandates. But in the euro area, that requires a
different monetary policy response than for others. That is because we
also face a second set of challenges that are largely specific to us.
They result from our institutional structure: conducting monetary policy
in a segmented banking and capital market, and without a single
area-wide fiscal authority as a counterpart. There are two types of
challenges in particular that emerge from this."
"There are forces in the global economy today that are conspiring to
hold inflation down. Those forces might cause inflation to return more
slowly to our objective. But there is no reason why they should lead to a
permanently lower inflation rate."
"What matters is that central banks act within their mandates to
fulfill their mandates. In the euro area, that might create different
challenges than it does in other jurisdictions. But those challenges can
be mitigated. They do not justify inaction."

Gold Technical Analysis: bullish reversal in a medium term, rally to be started in long-term
Seem the weekly breakout is going on for now: the price is breaking Senkou Span line which is the virtual border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish trend on the chart:
The reversal resistance level is 1205.74 so if the price breaks this level to above so it will be the bullish reversal.
