EUR/USD around 1.3035/40 ahead of German data

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The shared currency is posting marginal losses on Friday, hovering over 1.3035/40 ahead of the German retail sales during April.

As of writing the pair is losing 0.08% at 1.3039 with the next support at 1.2934 (low May 30) ahead of 1.2909 (MA10d) and then 1.2838 (low May 29). On the flip side, a surpass of 1.3072 (61.8% of 1.3243-1.2796) would open the door to the psychological level at 1.3100 and then 1.3117 (MA100d)
