EUR/USD bounces-off 10-DMA

The EUR/USD pair trades -0.25% lower at 1.1244, recovering from fresh session lows reached at 1.1222 on European open. The major bounced-off lows, although remains pressured amid rallying European stocks on positive corporate and higher resource stocks.

Among the major European indices, the pan-European benchmark, the Euro Stoxx 50 jumps 0.91% to 3,250 while the German DAX rallies over 1% to 10,012.

Moreover, the latest weak German industrial production data also continues to weigh on investors’ sentiment. Industrial production in Germany fell 1.2% m/m in August, after a 1.2% growth seen in the July according to Destatis. Markets had expected a 0.2% gain.

Meanwhile, the main currency pair will continue to track the sentiment on the European stocks as the session ahead holds nothing of relevance in terms of economic news.

On the upside, the major faces immediate resistance near 1.1285-1.1290 region (Sept 29, Oct 5 and Today’s High) beyond which post-NFP highs at 1.1319, could act as a strong hurdle. A breach of the last could open doors for a test of 1.1400 (round number). While the immediate support is located at 1.1220 (10-DMA), below which 1.1200 (psychological levels) could act as a strong support. A failure to resist the last, the prices could drown to 1.1147 (100-DMA).
