EUR/USD - 08 July 2019


Fundamental Highlights

The Euro dropped on Friday after German Factory orders plunged 8.6% Year-on-year in May, the biggest slide in almost a decade, reflecting the negative impact of the trade tensions on the Euro zone’s biggest economy. On the other hand, the greenback got boosted after the US created more jobs than it expected, which in turn diminished the probability of the Fed to cut rates in July’s meeting. Today, Germany will publish its Industrial Production figures, a weaker than expected data will add even more pressure on the Single currency.

Technical Analysis

The Euro broke below a major support level on Friday, 1.1250, which is also the 200-day moving average and the rising trend line since the beginning of June. A retest of the recently broken support might be in play today, after that the Single currency will likely roll over and test the recent lows once again. The pressure will remain on the bulls as long as price is trading below 1.1250.

Support: 1.12 / 1.1180
Resistance: 1.1250 / 1.1270
