EUR/USD in lows ahead of German unemployment

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The bearish sentiment continues to weight on the shared currency on Wednesday, dragging the EUR/USD to fresh lows around 1.2840 ahead of the opening bell in London.

German jobless rate is due next, with market consensus expecting the headline to stay put at 6.9% in May. Further relevant data will show flash consumer prices in Germany during May and a Spanish auction of Obligaciones maturing in 10 years.

At the moment the pair is losing 0.07% at 1.2846 facing the next support at 1.2821 (low May 23) followed by 1.2809 (low May 20) and then 1.2796 (low May 17). On the flip side, a break above 1.2939 (hourly high May 28) would bring 1.2986 (MA21d) and finally 1.2994 (high May 24).
