Forex: EUR/USD around 1.3190 ahead of US data

The bloc currency remains stuck in levels below 1.3200 on Thursday, ahead of the US inflation figures, labor market data and Markit manufacturing PMI.

Softer-than-expected results from PMI prints in the euro area have eclipsed the positive outcome from the Spanish auction, extending the negative trend in yields.

At the moment, EUR/USD is down 0.66% at 1.3195 with the next support levels lined up at 1.3039 (low Jan.10) followed by 1.3018 (low Jan.7) and then 1.2998 (low Jan.4).
On the other hand, a break above 1.3367 (MA10d) would bring 1.3440 (MA21d) and finally 1.3456 (high Feb.14).
