EUR/USD back to highs after Sentix (Edinburgh) - The shared currency is returning to the area around 1.2840 on Monday, despite the poor print of the Sentix index.

EUR/USD remains vulnerable

The investor confidence in terms of the Sentix index, came in lower than expectations at -12.6 for the month of June, missing the median at -10.0 and lower than May’s -11.6. Next on tap in the euro area will be the German industrial production figures, with market consensus expect a monthly contraction of 0.5% during May. “The 1.2800 area has held well since April and may hold again on the day but EUR remains a sell on rallies”, suggested Sean Callow, Strategist at Westpac.
