EUR/USD Analysis

We have now produced two consecutive daily inside candles, which is a fairly rare occurrence. The price has been consolidating strongly between about 1.2500 and 1.2375. Therefore although the support and resistance levels the price is currently trapped between are strong, there is a possibility of a strong breakout beyond them too.

EURUSD 121614

There are high-impact data releases scheduled today directly concerning the EUR but nothing regarding the USD. At 8am London time there will be a release of French Flash Manufacturing data followed by the German data half an hour later. Then at 10am there will be a release of German ZEW Economic Sentiment. The first half of the London session is likely to see most activity.
