Forex: EUR/USD paring gains after German data (Barcelona) - The single currency is trimming some of the early gains after the German industrial production showed a contraction of 2.9% in December (-0.3% exp.), coming from flat growth in November. Over the last twelve months it rose 0.9%, far lower than the 4.3% estimated (4.4% prev.).

On the downside, a violation of the psychological level at 1.3100 would expose 1.3089 (low Feb.7) then 1.3026 (low Feb.1) and 1.3000
