March 17, 2014

Current trend

Last week the pair had reached new local highs since 2011 at the level of 1.3966. However the pair failed to maintain this level and by the end of the trading session fell to the level of 1.3910. EUR/USD was able to reach such high level despite weak and ambiguous economic data of Eurozone.

This week the EUR/USD started at the closing Friday’s level. This week is not going to be very eventful in terms of important economic statistics; however attention shall be paid to sentiment index in business sector of Germany as per ZEW, which will be released on Tuesday. It is expected that this index will decline against the previous level, which will put pressure on Euro. Today, US volume of industrial output for February will become known, which can also affect the pair EUR/USD.

Resistance levels: 1.3915, 1.3940 and 13965.

Support levels: 1.3870, 1.3845, 1.3830 and 1.3800.

Trading tips

It is likely that the pair will continue to decline as strengthening in Euro is not advantageous for EU. Short positions can be placed below the level of 1.3850. Limit sell orders are recommended at the level of 1.3940.
