EUR/USD Price Analysis and Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Fails to Spike Higher
  • ZEW Survey Set for Another Drop

EUR/USD Fails to Spike Higher

Unlike the Pound, the recent gains in the Euro against the US Dollar have more or less been a grind higher as key resistance curbs any sharp appreciation in the pair. Increased optimism that the UK and EU could potentially reach an agreement before October 31st has seen EUR/USD break out of its 4-month downtrend. However, failure to make a break above the September peak at 1.1109 suggests that this recovery in the Euro is a minor correction as opposed to a meaningful reversal. Therefore, an absence of a deal between the UK and EU before the end of the month could see the Euro maintain its broader downtrend.

ZEW Survey Set for Another Drop

On the economic calendar, the latest ZEW Survey will be released in which consensus is for another drop. Throughout September, investor angst had been lifted on the repo rate spike, while weak global PMI data had also heightened recession fears. Consequently, a weaker than expected ZEW Survey is likely to keep the Euro modestly under pressure.
