FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The bloc currency is keeping today’s highs in the proximity of 1.3380 as we enter the last part of the NA session on Thursday, where risk-on trade continues to dominate the markets.

Moving forward to Friday, risk trends will be put to the test, as China will release its GDP figures for the fourth quarter as well as retail sales and industrial production. The euro zone docket would be almost non-existent, as only Italian industrial orders/sales are due. Across the pond, the preliminary print of the Reuters/Michigan index will be the most important event.
