EUR/USD pair is on the defensive around 1.2380 today ahead of German ZEW Survey. The 20 February EURUSD Technical Forecast gives more details on this.
20 February, GKFX – The sentiment around the shared currency remains depressed during the first half of the week and is now dragging EUR/USD to test the lower end of the weekly range in the 1.2385/80 band.
EURUSD focused on ZEW, FOMC
The spot is losing ground for the third session in a row on Tuesday in response to a persistent pick up in the demand for the greenback, in turn, supported by a rebound in US yields. In fact, yields of the key US 10-year note regained the 2.90% neighborhood and above during overnight trade, lending at the same time extra legs to the bid tone surrounding the buck.
Data wise in Euroland, the German/EMU ZEW survey is next on tap along with the Ecofin meeting and the advanced consumer sentiment gauge measured by the European Commission. Across the pond, nothing scheduled for today while investors should start to shift their attention to the FOMC minutes, to be published tomorrow.
