While key psychological levels continue to provide support and resistance for the pair, a quiet economic calendar has left prices stagnant.

That being said, tomorrow brings German inflation and US NFP’s into the spotlight, providing an additional catalyst for volatility.

As inflation remains a key concern for central banks, February’s US job data could drive prices in either direction.

For the US central bank, a strong job report will likely increase the likelihood of a 50-basis point rate hike, supporting a stronger Dollar. This could drive EUR/USD lower, opening the door for a probable retest of 1.050.

In contrast, a weaker employment report could reignite the possibility for a 25-basis point rate hike, allowing the Euro to recover toward the 1.060 mark.
