EUR/USD bounces-back to 1.1340 ahead of EU/US data

  • Attempts a tepid recovery above 5-DMA amid dollar comeback.
  • Awaits Eurozone industrial production data and US CPI for fresh trading impetus.  

Fresh bids emerged near the daily pivot at 1.1310, allowing a tepid bounce in the EUR/USD pair in an effort to regain the 5-DMA barrier at 1.1321. At the press time, the pair trades at 1.1332, up +0.10% on the day.

Despite the latest leg up in the spot, the bulls remain wary amid a broad-based US dollar comeback, as markets remain focussed on the outcome of the US-China trade talks, starting tomorrow.

More so, the US dollar index rose from 96.64 lows to print the daily highs at 96.84, as markets expect the US headline CPI figure to accelerate to 0.1% m/m in January vs. 0.0% last while the core figures are likely to steady at 0.2% inter-month.

On the EUR-side of the story, the recent downbeat Eurozone fundamentals continue to undermine the sentiment around the common currency that could keep any recovery short-lived.

Meanwhile, the negative tone seen around the 10-year German bond yields could also cap the upside attempts, as the immediate focus now shifts towards the Eurozone industrial production data due at 1000 GMT, which could aid the recovery mode in the major.
