EUR/USD doesn’t look away from the ECB

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/USD is accomplishing modest intraday gains, with Eurozone services PMIs and retail sales having virtually no impact, as investors await the outcome of the European Central Bank policy meeting and the US nonfarm payrolls.



The EUR/USD found support once again at the 1.3640 area and managed to recoup losses at the beginning of the European session. However, with the bounce being capped by 1.3665, the pair has been confined to a consolidative range ahead of key events. At time of writing, the euro is trading at 1.3655, virtually unchanged since opening.



While the ECB is expected to keep policy unchanged, US nonfarm payrolls consensus calls for an above 200K job creation in June.



EUR/USD technical levels
