EUR/USD unchanged. Eurozone unemployment fell to 10.3%.

EUR/USD was fluctuating in a range of 1.1357-1.1437 today. As of 1:00 PM EDT the currency pair was trading at 1.1393 (unchanged). Morgan Stanley analysts provided their targets for Euro. “Yellen’s dovish speech has given support to EUR, pushing EURUSD through 1.14. We expect EURUSD could trade as high as 1.16/1.17 in a weak USD environment but expect the ECB will be uncomfortable with sustained strength near these levels. Core CPI was a positive surprise this week, though this may have been driven by the timing of Easter. In general, we don’t see a catalyst for EUR weakness in the short term and expect it to range trade near these levels” written in the report.
