EUR/USD Weekly Analysis 29 May 2017 – Waiting for Employment Data

The Euro-Dollar pair is consolidating ahead of US employment data later in the week. The rhetoric from the Fed and the data over the last few months has some participants believing the FED may not hike rates in June. If this is confirmed by the data, the Euro may extend its gains, while strong data may see a bigger correction as the USD rallies. If the data is difficult to interpret, the indecision will increase and so will volatility.

The underlying trend is still bullish for the Euro, it’s just the size of the corrections that are uncertain.
