EUR/USD & FOMC Minutes: When will we see the greenback's bottom for mid-term?

Today at 18:00 GMT will be released the FOMC minutes from July's meeting, where the interest rates were left unchanged. Those minutes should be acting as a catalyst for commodities and US dollar, as the last one has been showing weakness during last few days and that situation is helping to strengthen its major competitors (EUR, GBP, etc). There are no major expectations regarding the content of that meeting, but it can give us some hints of possible rate hikes for this year.

The technical picture for EUR/USD at H4 chart is reaching overbought conditions, as the pair had been rallying and it's fully consolidated above the 200 SMA. Next technical level is located in the 1.1327 price zone, where is placed the 100% Fibonacci extension, but a key resistance is at the 1.1379 level. Hawkish minutes should provide bullish momentum to the greenback and EUR/USD may slump to test Tuesday's low (1.1168) at least, while a very dovish should help the EUR to extend its gains against the dollar towards the 1.1379 level.
