Will The EUR/USD Selling Pressure Continue?
The US Dollar extended gains versus the Euro after last week’s FOMC Monetary Policy Meeting. The EURUSD pair found sellers from the resistance level of 1.1446 and then closed the week below the 1.1367 daily level.
The Fed kept interest rates unchanged at 2.25%, as expected. However, the Federal Reserve appeared poised to deliver another interest rate hike next month. They also added that the labor market has continued to strengthen and that economic activity has been rising at a strong rate. Hawkish Fed Meeting and strong US economic reports have supported the USD in recent weeks.
Looking ahead among next week's US data, Producer Price Index, Retail Sales, NY Empire State and Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index as well as the Crude Oil Inventories, will be closely followed by traders.
One of the major indicators of economic conditions, the US CPI Inflation, will be published on Wednesday. October's customer price index is expected to come out at 2.5%, higher than a previous number of 2.3%. However, the Core CPI inflation is expected to stay at 2.2%. Acceleration in headline inflation may support rate hikes from the Fed.
In addition to the US data, the Eurozone Consumer Prices index will be announced next week and it is expected to stay at 2.2% in October as the same as the previous number. A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive for the euro.
Watch out for the 1.1367 daily resistance level. As long as the price stays below 1.1367, on a daily basis, the downward movement might continue and we will see 1.1262 as a key support level. On the other hand, if the pair goes beyond 1.1367, the next resistance level can be found at 1.1446.

In the UK, we will focus on the Unemployment Rate and CPI Number this week. The UK Unemployment Rate is expected to stay at 4.0%, the same as the previous reading. The CPI inflation is expected to rise to 2.5% from 2.4% year-on-year. A better than expected reading would support Sterling
