The pair EUR/USD is going to complete the consolidation
The European macroeconomic data, published on Friday, were mixed. In German exports gained 1.3% vs. 0.5%, imports increased by 0.4% (forecast -0.3%), the overall trade balance amounted to 19.8 billion euro vs. expectations of 18.5 billion.
This week, the US Treasury allocates 108 billion bonds. March and April are the months of the highest budget revenue in connection with the tax payments. And it seems strange why the Treasury continues intensively to build up debt at such favorable circumstances.
Today, there is no significant news, except the Italian industrial production in February. The forecast is -0.7%. Today, the head of the New York Fed, William Dudley will have speech. We are waiting for the completion of the consolidation of the pair EUR/USD in the range of 1.1340-1.1465.
