EUR/USD: summary for midday US session - FXStreet

FXStreet (Guatemala) - Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet explained the conditions surrounding EUR/USD today so far.

"During the European morning, macroeconomic data showed that Industrial Production in the EU fell by 0.5% in August, whilst inflation readings in Italy, France and Spain, all came out negative, although failed to affect the market."

"Early US session, the country released is PPI figures for September which resulted much worse-than expected, down yearly basis by 1.1%, whilst the core reading ex Food & Energy came out at 0.8%, from previous 0.9% and against 1.2% expected "

"Retail Sales during the same month, grew by 0.1% monthly basis, with the core reading down 0.3%, also disappointing investors."

"The EUR/USD pair extended its advance beyond the 1.1440 level, and the short term picture supports additional gains, given that the price met intraday buying interest on pullbacks towards a bullish 20 SMA, whilst the technical indicators head sharply higher above their mid-lines."

"In the 4 hours chart, the technical picture is also bullish, despite the RSI indicator stands in extreme overbought levels. The pair has a strong midterm resistance in the 1.1460 region, and will likely find some selling interest around it, yet a break above it should lead to a steady advance towards the 1.1500 region during the upcoming hours."
