EUR/USD flatlined around 1.1030, IFO on sight

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The single currency has started the week on the right footing vs. the greenback, with EUR/USD sidelined around the 1.1030 area so far.

EUR/USD focus on IFO

The pair has managed to regain some strength an advance towards the current 1.1030/40 region during the Asian trading hours after briefly testing sub-1.1000 levels last Friday.

Spot has broken below the key support at the 8-month uptrend on Friday, following the increased selling pressure after the ECB meeting. In the meantime, EUR is expected to remain under pressure as today’s German IFO is expected a tad lower than the previous readings.

EUR/USD relevant levels

As of writing the pair is up 0.12% at 1.1031 and a breakdown of 1.1000 (psychological level) would target 1.0915 (low Jul.7) and finally 1.0847 (low Aug.5). On the flip side, the next hurdle lines up at 1.1074 (8-month uptrend) followed by 1.1117 (200-day sma) and then 1.1153 (61.8% Fibo of 1.0808-1.1713).
