The EUR / USD continues to trade in different directions while maintaining mostly laterally midweek movement.
Thursday trading ended in the red zone, -0.15%, against widespread US dollar strengthening, especially to raw currencies (0.6 to Australian dollar, 0.5% to NZD, 0.4% to Canadian dollar). Experts note that the main driver of growth was the good data from the internal statistics of the United States. The number of applications for unemployment benefits for the reporting week amounted to only 196K, which is the minimum value of this indicator since October 1969. The producer price index rose 0.6%, with an expected growth of 0.3%, increasing the likelihood of growth of consumer inflation in the medium term.
European currency was nothing to answer. Published data on the consumer price index in France, Germany and other EU countries in line with market expectations, and therefore does not have a noticeable impact on the course of trading.
Today, the surprise of many, the market situation has changed dramatically. In the Asian session, the pair EUR / USD has demonstrated stable growth, recouping all the losses of the previous trading day. But, the main problem for the euro is that this growth has not been triggered by the influence of some fundamental factors, but rather was purely technical in nature. Therefore, the bullish wave, probably does not have a great development prospects in the second half of the day we can see the return of the price to yesterday's lows.
In the center of attention of the market today are data on industrial production in the EU (expected to decline by 0.5%) and the index of the University of Michigan, and investors will be closely watching the EU and US dialogue on the possible start of trade negotiations.
