Keep Your Eye On The US GDP Growth This Week!
A sharp drop in the Euro supported the US dollar last week. The EURUSD pair broke down 1.1285 and then moved down towards the daily support level of 1.1219. Concerns that the Eurozone Economy is slowing were strengthened in after weaker-than-expected manufacturing reports from Germany and France.
Looking ahead, there’s a wave of economic data coming out this week. Focus on GDP Growth for Q1, Existing Home Sales, New Home Sales and Core Durable Goods Orders in the US.
The advance reading of the first-quarter GDP will be released on Friday, with forecasts for its stay at 2.2%.
Existing Home Sales measure monthly sales of previously owned single-family homes and is expected to fall by -2.3% m/m in March. If the data post a weak reading, it would be negative for the greenback.
On the other hand, the US Durable goods orders excluding transportation in the meantime are expected to rise to 0.2% in March from -0.1% fall in the previous month.
In addition to the US data, the German IFO Business Climate Index will be published on Wednesday. The index based on a survey of manufacturers, builders, wholesalers and retailers and it measures expectations of German Economic Activity for the next six months. The Index is expected to rise to 99.9 from 99.6 a month ago.
Watch out for the main support level of 1.1219. As long as the EURUSD pair stays above 1.1219 on a daily basis, the downward movement may be limited and we will see 1.1285 as a key resistance level again. Otherwise, if the pair breaks down below 1.1219, the next daily support level can be found at 1.1103.
