Forex: EUR/SEK testing weekly lows after Swedish data

The Swedish krona is stronger on Wednesday, orbiting around 8.4300 against the single currency on Wednesday after the trade surplus during January widened to SEK 6.0 billion from SEK 0.7 billion in the previous month.

The cross remains in the defensive path after the slightly hawkish tone from the Riksbank minutes on Tuesday, adding buying interest to the krona.

At the moment, the cross is up 0.02% at 8.4338 with the next resistance at 8.4899 (high Feb.21) ahead of 8.5000 (MA14d) and then 8.5300 (low Feb.5).
On the downside, a break below 8.4015 (low Feb.20) would allow 8.3943 (Lower Bollinger) and then 8,3107 (low Aug.31).
