EUR/USD is depressed by German readings

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Moscow) - EUR/USD opened the day at 1.3594, slid to 1.3575 at the moment, and is on the way lower due to weak German data.

Back and forth around 1.36
The pair is trading just below 1.36 area still impressed by stronger than expected US data. However, the week ahead promises to be rather dull from the fundamental point of view, thus, the recovery back above is not ruled out, but only if some second-tier data prove to be euro supportive. Just released German data confirmed the fall of industrial production to -1.8% m/m, +1.3% y/y from -0.3% m/m, +1.8% y/y previously. This is another argument in favor of euro zone economical weakness, as even the largest economy of the region is under the pressure, and may no longer bear the burden of the periphery.
