Forex: EUR/USD retreats from 1.2960

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Rumours keep on driving the price action of the single currency on Tuesday. The euro retreated now to the area of 1.2935/40 after rumours about Russian investors buying the Cypriot bank Cyprus popular were denied, giving away previous gains.

Against the backdrop of this sea of rumours, euro traders now shift their attention to the flash Consumer Confidence figures in the euro area for the month of March, ahead of the FOMC meeting due in the European evening.

EUR/USD is up 0.53% at 1.2937 with the next resistance at 1.2970 (high Mar.19) followed by 1.3009 (MA10d) and then 1.3074 (MA21d).
On the flip side, a breakdown of 1.2844 (low Mar.19) would expose 1.2827 (low Nov.22) and finally 1.2730 (low Nov.19).
