Eurozone Flash GDP EURUSD Impact Analysis
On a better GDP print, the EUR bulls could regain control, pushing the EUR/USD pair back towards the 1.2400 mark. However, the spot could extend the drop to test the 1.23 handle on a downside surprise.
In terms of technicals,
“the pair’s inability to move back above the 1.2400 handle, marking 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of 1.1916-1.2538 recent upsurge could now be seen as initial signs of bullish exhaustion. The corrective slide, therefore, seems more likely to get extended towards 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level support near the 1.2300 round figure mark. On the upside, the 1.2390-1.2400 region might continue act as an immediate hurdle and is followed by resistance near the 1.2430 horizontal zone,”
Haresh Menghani explains.
