EUR/USD is losing its positions, down from 1.1150 level on the back of weak German retail sales. Today Eurozone will publish Consumer prices that expectedly will show 0.1% dip on a yearly basis. If expectations come true than Eurozone will keep deflation for a fourth consecutive month.

GBP/USD spiked resistance level of 1.47 and tested todays high at 1.4725 spot on the back of the latest Brexit polls, which showed that “remain” voted participants claimed 51% while their “exit” opponents stood at 46%. Spike faded quickly as market prefers to hold the US currency bid tone before US macro dataflow. Also the pair finds some support from risky sentiments which are taking control over the market amid higher Asian indices and stabilizing oil prices.
