There are many resistances on the way up for the pair, and any corrections may be considered as a selling opportunity.
German Gross Domestic Product
Today in the Euro Zone, the Gross Domestic Product, which is a measure of the total value of all goods and services produced by Germany was released by the Statistisches Bundesamt Deutschland.
The market was not expecting an increase of 0.3% in Q3 2016, compared with the same previous quarter. However, the result was disappointing, as there was a rise of 0.2%. When we look at the yearly change, there was a rise of 1.5%, which was less than the last increase of 3.1%. The report added that “In a quarter-on-quarter comparison (adjusted for price, seasonal and calendar variations), positive contributions were made mainly by domestic final consumption expenditure. The final consumption expenditure of both households and government continued to increase”.
Overall, the EURUSD may correct a few pips higher from the current levels, but it is likely to face sellers on the upside.
