EUR/USD sidelined around 1.3060/65

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The shared currency is trading in a narrow range on Tuesday, retreating from yesterday’s highs above 1.3100 to the current area around 1.3060/65.

Disappointing US ISM manufacturing on Monday sparked a wave of selling orders in the greenback, lifting EUR/USD to fresh 4-week highs in the vicinity of 1.3110, although its upside momentum run out of steam later. “In the short term we would be cautious as the market is very long the dollar and as the dollar gave back less than what would probably have been expected given the size of the drop in the ISM”, signaled Kasper Kirkegaard, Senior Analyst at Danske Bank.

As of writing, the pair is losing 0.07% at 1.3067 and a break below 1.2944 (low May 31) would expose 1.2939 (MA10d) and finally 1.2934 (low May 30). On the flip side, resistance levels align at 1.3110 (MA100d) followed by 1.3194 (high May 8).
