"EUR/USD has rebounded to the low 1.3350 after slipping as low as 1.3334 earlier in the day on poor Italian GDP and a big drop in German factory orders," comments Jamie Coleman from FXXBeat. "Looks like we may be in for some backing and filling for the time being."



First resistance lies at 1.3360 ahead of 1.375 and 1.3400. On the downside, supports are at 1.3330, 1.3300 and 1.3250.
