On Friday, the EUR/USD pair stalled its post-ECB downfall and rebounded around 75-pips from an intraday low level of 1.2055, the lowest since January 12. A modest US Dollar retracement primarily led by some profit-taking and despite better-than-expected first-quarter US GDP growth figures, was seen as one of the key factors behind the pair’s goodish recovery. 

The pair kicked-off a new week on a quiet note and oscillated in a 15-pips narrow trading range above the 1.2100 handle as traders now look forward to the prelim German CPI print for some fresh impetus, expected to remain well below the ECB’s medium-term target of 2%. Even a slight miss would reinforce expectations that the European Central Bank will keep interest rates low for an extended period of time and might prompt some fresh selling around the shared currency.

Even from a technical perspective, the pair last week confirmed a bearish breakthrough 100-day SMA support and over the 3-month old trading range.
