How could Eurozone flash CPIs affect EURUSD?
Haresh Menghani, FXStreet’s own Analyst offers important technical levels ahead of the key release: “A sustained move beyond the 1.1245-50 region will reinforce the expectations and trigger a short-covering bounce and assist the pair to aim towards reclaiming the 1.1300 round figure mark, albeit any subsequent up-move seems more likely to remain capped near the 1.1325-30 supply zone.”
“Alternatively, a decisive break through the 1.1200 mark will shift the pendulum back in favor of bearish traders and accelerate the slide back towards YTD lows, around the 1.1175 region. A follow-through selling has the potential to continue dragging the pair further towards challenging the 1.1100 round figure mark, coinciding with descending trend-line support extending from lows touched in Aug. 2018 through Nov. 2018 swing low,” Haresh adds.
