EUR/USD boosted by data, FOMC next

Very auspicious data from euro zone manufacturing and services PMI during January propelled the single currency near the 1.3700 handle during the European morning, helped at the same time by poor data from the US docket and better consumer confidence in the euro bloc for January.

A close above the 50-day MA at 1.3638 would suggest a shift in momentum and potentially open up a test up to 1.3700; however for now all technical studies continue to warn of downside risks”.
