Technical Analysis

The EURUSD pair moved higher Intraday, and it is currently trading near the last swing high of 1.0945-50, which is acting as a hurdle for buyers. There is also a trend line, preventing the upside break as highlighted in the chart attached.


A break above the highlighted trend line and resistance area may call for a move towards the 1.10 handle where sellers might appear. On the downside, an initial support can be around 1.0920-10, followed by 1.0900.

The hourly RSI is above the 50 level and currently around the overbought levels, which may ignite a correction moving ahead.

German Trade Balance

Today, the German Trade Balance, which is a balance between exports and imports of total goods and services was released by the Statistisches Bundesamt Deutschland. The forecast was lined up for a trade surplus of €20.0B in October 2015, compared with the preceding month. However, the outcome was positive, as the trade surplus came in at €20.8B.

However, both imports and exports were on the negative side. The report stated that “German exports increased by 3.3% and imports by 3.0% in October 2015 year on year. Compared with September 2015, exports were down by 1.2% and imports by 3.4% in calendar and seasonally adjusted terms”.

The EURUSD pair is under bullish pressure currently, but no doubt 1.0950 holds the key for more gains in the near term.
