EUR/USD


After weeks of rally, EUR/USD finally shows correction movement, on Asia session this morning it opens with 1.1763 and fell to the current 1.1720. Today’s Support is at 1.1706 and Resistance at 1.1791.

This bearish trend is due to US President Trump’s statement on optimistic US economic recovery and hints of tax cuts for middle-income families. Plus, better than expected US PPI figure brings a stronger USD bullish effect that overwhelms the EUR bullish effect of Germany’s positive Economic Sentiment data.

German — German ZEW Economic Sentiment

US — PPI  (Producer Price Index), Core CPI, Crude
Oil Inventories
