Q2 2019 EUR Forecast and USD Top Trading Opportunities

EURUSD remains within a noted downtrend but may be looking to continue its recent correct bounce higher with the 1.1200 handle in already broken. Today’s Euro-Zone q/q GDP data came in marginally better-than-expected - 0.4% vs 0.3% expectations and 0.2% prior - while recent indications are that German CPI later today may also surprise to the upside after recent regional results. Earlier in the session, German unemployment data also beat expectations, adding another positive EURUSD impulse.

EURUSD Breaks Above 1.1200 on Positive Euro-Zone Data Releases

The current positive momentum in EURUSD may see last Wednesday’s 1.1224 level come under pressure before the 20- and 50-day moving averages at 1.1236 and 1.1261 come into view. The CCI indicator shows the pair moving sharply out of oversold territory. EURUSD needs to break and close above the recent double-top at 1.1325 to gain further momentum.
