This second downward momentum found its low at 92.23, and the market is currently erasing losses.

Just released, EMU trade surplus in December was narrowed from ¬13B (revised from ¬13.7B) to ¬11.7B, instead of ending at ¬13.1B as expected.

"Break here (92.00) would be a trigger for more significant correction and open 91.25, 50% of 88.05/84.45 upleg next", wrote Windsor Brokers analyst Slobodan Drvenica, adding that any bounce higher would face initial barriers at 92.80/93.00 zone, while only regain of 93.70/76 double top of 13/14 Feb, will shift near-term focus higher.
