EUR/USD Firmer, Challenges 1.1300

A negative open of equity markets in the Old Continent is somewhat propping up the now bid tone in EUR/USD, which managed to regain the 1.13 neighbourhood.

EUR/USD attention to risk, Fedspeak

Despite the ongoing correction higher, spot remains under pressure against the backdrop of volatile sentiment following the ‘no deal’ scenario at the Doha meeting, although a more convincing break above 1.1300 the figure could need a strong catalyst.

Ahead in the session, no events are scheduled in Euroland, whereas the NAHB index and speeches by FOMC members Dudley and Kashkari will surely keep investors entertained.

EUR/USD levels to watch

The pair is now up 0.13% at 1.1301 and a break above 1.1313 (20-day sma) would aim for 1.1454 (2016 high Apr.7) and then 1.1496 (monthly high Oct.15 2015). On the flip side, the initial support aligns at 1.1219 (38.2% Fibo of 1.0820-1.1455) followed by 1.1186 (55-day sma) and finally 1.1142 (low Mar.24).
