“Despite the noise, the pair continues to be trapped in the 1.0300/1.0410 area, and seems market is comfortable playing such extremes,” comments Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at FXstreet.com. “Beware of Chinese data however, that can shook the pair if reading diverges strongly with the previous reading.” The analyst also notes that, the downside will remain limited while spot trades above 1.0290.
