The EUR/USD decline is behind a modest rise in the dollar, which tries to recover from lows in months. Following Monday’s Wall Street holiday, bond yields confirm Friday’s rebound, supporting the greenback. The main European stock indices and the futures of the Americans are falling.

The ZEW index of economic sentiment for Germany in January had a great recovery going from -23.3 to 16.9, exceeding the -15.5 expected. The current situation index improved from -61.4 to -58.6, below the -57 market consensus.

In the US, the Manufacturing Empire will be published and the Treasury will place debt at 3 and 6 months. On Wednesday, the final reading of Eurozone inflation for December will be released and several US reports will be out, including industrial production and retail sales. Also, to note tomorrow, the Bank of Japan will announce its monetary policy decision.


The dominant trend is still bullish and solid. The current reversal of the EUR/USD is limited, although on the four hour chart the bearish signals are beginning to gain strength. A break of 1.0800 would expose the next support which is located around 1.0770.

On the upside, if confirmed above 1.0835, the euro could gain momentum to go looking for the 1.0865 area and then the focus will go to the maximum in months reached at the beginning of the week at 1.0873 and the 1.0900 area.
