EURUSD maintained bearish momentum for 2nd consecutive trading day on Thursday as the Greenback strengthened on the Fed’s hawkish tone in FOMC minutes. The pair remained bearish on Thursday despite release of worse than expected economic figures from the U.S especially Philly Fed Manufacturing (Actual -1.8 < Forecast 3.2) and U.S Unemployment claims (Actual 278k > Forecast 276k).

On Friday, the investors are recommended to monitor the following events:

  • Current Account (EUR)
  • German PPI (EUR)
  • Existing Home Sales (USD)
  • FOMC Member Tarullo Speaks (USD)
