EUR/USD should see more volatility Thursday as more data due out in Europe and the US

The EUR/USD rallied for most of the day rallying after softer economic data out of Germany and the EU was outweighed by lower-than expected weekly jobless claims data and in-line durable goods data in the US. The rally picked up steam later in the day on rumors that the Federal Reserve would keep its $85Bn monthly rate of its bond buying program in in place when they meet next week.

It is a fairly light economic calendar due out for the EU and the US Friday with only the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index due out in the US at 13:55 GMT.
