EUR/USD - 31 July 2018


Fundamental Highlights

The Euro breaks above the 1.16681 resistance level after the release of the positive Germany Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices. The year on year figure matched the consensus estimate of 2.1%. After the break above the 1.16681, the Euro rose all the way towards 1.17250 supported by the weakness in the greenback due to the drop in U.S Treasury yields. For today, the market awaits the release of the Eurozone employment figures and the CPI figures. A positive outcome will help the Euro continue its short-term rally.
