Forex: EUR/USD eyes 1.3100 on Chinese data

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Better risk-on tone after the Chinese trade data is lifting the sentiment around the single currency on Wednesday, pushing the cross to the current region of 1.3090/95 ahead of the German Industrial Production due later. Prior surveys expect the headline to contract 0.1% on a monthly basis and 3.8% over the last twelve months.

As of writing, the cross is up 0.12% at 1.3095 facing the next resistance at 1.3141 (high May 6) ahead of 1.3160 (high May 3) and then 1.3220 (high May 2).
On the flip side, a dip beyond 1.3068 (low May 7) would aim for 1.3053 (low May 6) and finally 1.3033 (low May 3).

Economic data in the coming European session will be focused on German Industrial Production, due out at 10:00GMT. The US Session will also be quiet with major releases scheduled.
