EUR/USD analysis for 30/05/2018:

The first portion of the data was released this morning: the German Retail Sales data beat the estimates of 0.5% with the figure of 2.3% (-0.4% prior). nevertheless, the Import Price Index data were worse than expected as they were released at the level of 0.6% while the market participants expected 0.7% increase after 0.0% figure a month ago.

There are more important data coming from the various economies today, so it might be a violate day on the marekts.

Let's now take a look at the EUR/USD technical picture at the daily time frame. The exchange rate reached October bottom at 1.1550 which, given the strongly sold out market, may induce some investors to take profits. It is not possible to talk about a greater rebound as long as the downward trend line at 1.1710 is not broken and the whole zone of local highs 1.1725-50 strengthened by the level of 23.6% Fibo retracement started a month ago. Earlier, they would operate as 1.16 and 1.1620 as resistance. Breaking through yesterday's low would allow extending end the drops to the 200-week average and half of the upward trend from 2017 to 2018.
