How German ZEW Survey Impact EURUSD

On a positive surprise in the headline reading, the EUR bulls could extend their control, pushing the EURUSD pair back towards the 1.1300 level. However, the spot could stall the bounce and drop back to the 2018 low of 1.1216 should the data show a bigger-than-expected drop.

FXStreet´s Editor and Analyst, Haresh Menghani notes:

“looking at the technical picture, overnight slump below the 1.1300 handle, and a subsequent dip below a descending trend-channel confirmed a near-term bearish breakdown.

Hence, any meaningful recovery attempt is more likely to get sold into near the 1.1300 handle and the pair seems more likely to extend the near-term bearish trajectory.

The 1.1200 round figure mark now seems to extend some immediate support, below which the pair is likely to accelerate the fall towards 1.1155 intermediate support en-route the 1.1115-10 region.”
