Today we kept our key interest rates unchanged.
Our past interest rate hikes are already helping push inflation down.
Our future decisions will depend on how we see the economy and inflation developing.

What can we expect from EURUSD for the new week and what happened on Friday?
EURUSD on Friday dropped 0% to 1.05605. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling. For the week ending 2023-10-27, the pair dropped -0.31% or -32.5 pips lower.
Looking ahead on Monday, EURUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 1.05218.
For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 1.06943 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 1.05922. On the downside, we are looking at week low 1.05218 or 1.04901 (WS1) as immediate support level. EURUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below week low of 1.05218 would indicate selling pressure.
For the month of October, EURUSD is down by -0.1% or -10.4 pips lower.
