EUR/USD down 0.31%. China’s trade balance well below expectations.

EUR/USD gradually declined throughout the Asian session today. As of 3:00 AM EDT the pair was trading at 1.1350, which is 0.31% lower than the previous close.

Commerzbank analysts provided their outlook on EUR/USD today. “EUR/USD charted a minor new high of 1.1465 which was not confirmed by the daily RSI. This suggests a loss of upside momentum at the September and October highs at 1.1460/95 and ahead of the 1.1577 pivot line – we look for signs of further failure. We would allow for slippage towards the 1.1144 24th March low. Key nearby support lies the 1.1060/58 December high and the March 16 low. This guards the bottom of the range at 1.0908” written in the report.
