US stock indexes rose by about 10%. The euro did not participate in this rally, but came under pressure from cross-pairs in the American session. The stock market grew on expectations of the adoption of a package of emergency economic measures aimed at alieving the consequences of the coronavirus. Today it became known that the US Senate and Presidential Administration Donald Trump agreed on a package for stimulating the economy, worth $2 trillion USD.

Expectations for the return of prices to the balance line were fully justified. As soon as the price emerged from the triangular formation, the fall to the balance line (Lb, sma55) accelerated. The Lb at that time was strengthened by the trend. The price has strayed from the lines and has so far recovered by 77 points, to 1.0823.
All major currencies are trading positive against the US dollar. The euro is in fifth place ( 0.34%) in the ranking. Since the stochastic is on top, and most crosses with the euro are trading in the "red" zone, there is the likelihood of a repeated test of the trend line. According to the forecast, I expect growth to 1.0900. The MA line U3 will be a resistance. The forecast for growth will cancel when the hourly candle closes below 1.0746.
