EUR/USD extends the bounce to 1.1260

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The shared currency is prolonging its rebound from the 1.1220 area vs. the dollar, with EUR/USD now regaining the 1.1260/65 band.

EUR/USD trims earlier losses

The US dollar is now reverting the initial bid tone and thus helping spot to recover part of the pullback to daily troughs in the 1.1220 region, remaining at the same time on track to test intraday peaks near 1.1280 posted overnight.

In the data space, the pair paid little attention to the poor results from German Industrial Production and the ECB’s Non-monetary meeting. In the meantime, risk trends remain poised to dominate the price action ahead of the NA open, with only Consumer Credit Change figures due across the pond.

EUR/USD levels to watch

As of writing the pair is retreating 0.13% at 1.1257 with the next support at 1.1209 (55-d sma) followed by 1.1151 (2-month up trend) and then 1.1107 (monthly low Sep.23). On the upside, a breakout of 1.1300 (psychological level) would target 1.1460 (monthly high Sep.18) and then 1.1714 (high post-PBoC move Aug.24).
