EUR/USD unable to break the January range yet

Looking at price action so far this year, we see that following the Jan 2 decline from the Dec 27 high at 1.3892, EUR/USD has traded in a neat range. Applying a Fibonacci retracement from said Dec 27 high, to the Jan 6 low of 1.3570, we see that spot has tidily traded between the 0% and 23.6% levels (1.3570-1.3645). This mornings calendar has seen German Trade Balance data miss expectations alongside Imports and Exports. Italian Unemployment follows at 09:00 GMT before EZ Retail Sales and Unemployment Rate at 10:00 GMT, and German Factory Orders at 11:00 GMT. On the US side of the coin, MBA Mortgage Applications fall at 12:00 GMT, but the headline event of the day are the FOMC minutes, released at 19:00 GMT.
