EURUSD 1.3200 Breakout Stalled by Mum EU Summit, Google Earnings

EURUSD 1.3200 Breakout Stalled by Mum EU Summit, Google Earnings

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

As expected, the risk appetite-supported run that carried equity indexes and EURUSD to their respective highs ran out of steam before the serious breakouts were secured.

Without specific catalysts to throttle investor confidence higher, the market will return their focus to slowing growth, earnings and yields. The top event risk from this past session (the Chinese GDP figures, EU Summit remarks and shocking Google earnings report) underscored skepticism.
