Q1 2019 EUR Forecast and USD Top Trading Opportunities

A mixed bag of German and Euro-Zone ZEW data with German expectations picking from a lowly level while Euro-Zone economic sentiment stayed mired in negative territory.

EURUSD nudged lower on the data and in response to news that the German Economic Council had cut its 2019 growth forecast to 0.8% from a prior 1.5%. Traders will now look ahead to the latest FOMC meeting for Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s latest thoughts on the state of the US economy. No rate hike is expected but Powell’s thoughts on the balance sheet will need to be closely monitored.
