EURUSD has refreshed 2.5-year high touching 1.1845 level. And we saw it happened on the back of rather positive housing data out of the USA.
We need to give a credit to euro zone data as well. The released core CPI number was above forecasts showing 1.2% rise instead of 1.1%. Moreover, German retail sales significantly exceeded the expectations printing 1.1% m/m rise vs 0.2% forecast. Besides, the traditional month-end flows into European currencies played its role.
Today, the German labor market report and Manufacturing PMI are released. Anditmayspeedupthepairmovehigherincaseofpositivedata.
The only barrier on the way of EURUSD to 1.20 is US Non-Farm Payrolls. However, we still have time before Friday comes, and euro can easily do another 100 pips in a couple of days.
The next target for EURUSD is at 1.19 followed by 1.1970.
