EUR/USD unchanged on EMU data, near 1.1360

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The common currency remained apathetic after today’s releases in the euro area, with EUR/USD meandering around 1.1360.

EUR/USD muted post-data

The pair kept the composure around the 1.1360 area after inflation figures in the euro region have matched the preliminary prints, with core consumer prices rising at an annual pace of 0.9%. Further releases saw the trade balance in the region coming in at €11.2 billion during August vs. €20.0 billion expected and down from €31.4 billion.

In the meantime, spot remains entrenched in the negative territory ahead of US Industrial Production and the anticipated sentiment index gauged by Reuters/Michigan for the current month.

EUR/USD relevant levels

As of writing the pair is retreating 0.24% at 1.1356 and a breach of 1.1315 (Fibo 23.6% of 1.3993-1.0456) would open the door to 1.1300 (psychological level) and finally 1.1217 (55-day sma). On the other hand, the next up barrier aligns at 1.1496 (high Oct.15) followed by 1.1714 (high post-PBoC move Aug.24) and then 1.1847 (Fibo 38.2% of 1.3993-1.0456).

EUR/GBP unperturbed by EU CPI, around 0.7350

The cross in the EUR/GBP keeps the offered tone intact in the mid-European session, as the shared currency paid little heed to the softer price pressures in the Euro are economies, as confirmed by the final reading.
