Final fourth-quarter February French GDP figures reported in-line with expectations. France’s economy expanded 0.8 percent in fourth-quarter from a year ago and marks the third consecutive quarter of expansion. The benchmark growth rate reported GDP expanded 0.3 percent following a contraction from the previous quarter. The Euro was little-changed against the US Dollar following the report as traders may await March’s preliminary Eurozone CPI report that headlines the economic calendar in European hours today. Currency Strategist Jamie Saettle, CMT says that technical analysis of the single currency shows 1.3650-1.3700 support zone could inspire a multiday rally towards 1.3865.

This week is a significant week as the Euro’s fate depends on the outcome of the European Central Bank meeting later this week. According to Currency Analyst Chris Vecchio, there is a shift of fundamental momentum as ECB rhetoric and economic data points to a lower euro.
