Eurozone Flash GDP EURUSD Impact Analysis
On a positive surprise, the EUR bulls could regain poise, pushing the EUR/USD pair back above the 1.2400 mark. However, the spot could extend the drop below the 1.2348 support should the data disappoint.
In terms of technicals,
“The Euro has reached 1.2370, as we thought possible yesterday, and the 4-hour charts now look as though we could be in for further gains, which could see 1.2400/10, beyond which could head towards 1.2440/60.
The dailies are still looking heavy though, and a decent US CPI will see a bid tone return to the dollar, allowing a return to 1.2280/00, below which would suggest a move back towards 1.2200/30. Overall, given the mixed nature of the charts look for further choppy trade within the recent range in the 1.2250/1.2450 area,”
Jim Langlands explains.
