EUR/USD rejected at hourly 100-MA, hovers around 1.10

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/USD failed to sustain above hourly 100-MA at 1.1012 and quickly shed 30 odd pips before moving closer to 1.10 again.

Supported by hourly 50-MA

The pair found support at its hourly 50-MA located at 1.0980, although the broad based USD selling came to a halt, keeping the pair around 1.10 levels. The weaker-than-expected German retail sales figure released few minutes ago was overshadowed by a wave of USD selling.

The attention now shifts to the preliminary Eurozone CPI figure, which will be followed by a monthly US personal spending and income report.
