The EURUSD pair is firmly higher this Thursday, trading in the 1.2050 region. The greenback is down across the board as cooling expectations of a rate move in the US affected the demand for the American currency. Also, the Bank of England announced its decision on monetary policy, leaving rates unchanged but making a twist to its bond-buying program, which put further pressure on the greenback.
Macroeconomic data coming from Europe was quite encouraging, as Germany Factory Orders soared 27.8% MoM in March, while EU Retail Sales surged 2.7% in the same month, both beating the market’s expectations. US figures were also upbeat. Challenger Job Cuts decreased to 22.913K in April, while Initial Jobless Claims for the week ended April 30 resulted in 498K, better than the 540K expected. Q1 Nonfarm Productivity increased 5.4%, while Unit Labor Cost in the same period declined by 0.3%.
EURUSD holds on to daily gains in the 1.2050 region after better-than-anticipated US employment-related data. Initial Jobless Claims decreased to 498K in the week ended April 30.
The EURUSD pair is trading a few pips above the 23.6% retracement of its latest bullish run after repeatedly meeting buyers on approaches to the 38.2% retracement of the same rally.
The near-term picture offers a mildly bullish stance, as, in the above 4-hour chart, technical indicators are entering positive territory. In the same time-frame, the pair is developing above all of its moving averages, with the 20 SMA losing its bearish strength.
The pair could accelerate its advance once above 1.2075, the weekly high, as Support levels are at 1.2020, 1.1980, and 1.1940.
Resistance levels are set at 1.2075, 1.2110, and 1.2150.
For next week, our technical indicators are suggesting to go Long on the EURUSD at or below 1.2020, setting a stop loss at 1.1993, and Short it at or above 1.2091, setting a stop loss at 1.21. While the currency pair consolidates on the lower trading channel, one may benefit on day trading it between 120277 and 1.19860.
As of 3:59 PM (GMT), the EURUSD was trading at 1.2059.
