EUR/USD heads towards parity

Click image to enlarge.
The uptrend of the Euro against the US Dollar seems to have aborted, and the Euro plunges towards parity with the Dollar.

Causes for the change:
  • Great Britain prepares contingency plans for leaving the EU (so what? Just the effects this story has on sentiment);
  • The Greek government announces its intention to default on IMF payments (hardly unexpected);
  • European Central Bank announces intention to double its Quantitative Easing (clever damper on the surge of the Euro); but,
  • More importantly, better economic figures from USA and FED hints that its interest rates may increase as early as September 2015.

Blocks on EUR/USD journey towards parity occur about now ($1.085), and, again, around $1.05.
