The German Factory orders data report was released by the Deutsche Bundesbank today during the European session. The market was expecting the orders that includes shipments, inventories, and new and unfilled orders to decrease by 0.6% in April 2016, compared with the previous month. However, the outcome was disappointing, as there was a decline of 2%.
Moreover, in terms of the yearly change, the German Factory orders posted a decline of 0.5% in April 2016, compared with the same month a year ago. Overall, the report was negative, as currently weighing on the Euro and its market sentiment.
If the current trend continues, there is a chance of a dip towards the highlighted trend line and support area in EURCAD where the Euro bulls may appear.
