The EUR/USD is trading higher after ADP Employment Change numbers for June beat expectations. These figures were expected at 160k but were released at an actual 172K. After a momentary dip in price action, the EUR/USD has now rebounded and is trading just beneath 1.1100. Not only is this value acting as a whole number of resistance for the pair but it is also currently acting as an area of trend line resistance.

Sentiment for EUR/USD is currently negative, with SSI (speculative sentiment index) reading at -1.27. With 53% of positioning long, SSI has a slight bias towards a EUR/USD decline. In the event of a further price decline, traders should look for SSI to extend to a negative extreme of -2.0 or less. Alternatively, in the event that the EUR/USD trades higher, traders should watch for SSI to neutralize and potentially flip towards a positive reading.
