EUR/USD lacks momentum

FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD continues to trade within a familiar range Monday as the dollar remains broadly unchanged in a quiet start to the week.

In line with expectations Eurozone data failed to inspire EUR/USD, which despite recovering from a low of 1.2729, lacked momentum and remained capped by 1.2780 on the upside. At time of writing, the pair is trading at the 1.2765 area, just a few pips higher on the day.

With no first-tier data scheduled for this week in the euro area, markets will be watching closely for any official ECB announcement on covered bond buying.

EUR/USD technical levels

As for technical levels, immediate resistances for EUR/USD line up at the 1.2835/45 area (Oct 17 & 16 highs), followed by 1.2882 (Oct 15 high) and 1.2900 (psychological level). On the flip side, supports could be seen at 1.2730 (intraday low), 1.2704/00 (Oct 16 low/psychological level) and 1.2623 (Oct 15 low).
