EUR/USD Daily Price Forecast – The Fiber Bulls Add Power Ahead of Downbeat US Data -

In the last trading session, the Fiber had attempted to uplift from the lowest vicinities near 1.1130 levels. Today, in the Asian session, the Euro pair remains slightly aroused near 1.1157 levels. On Friday, the pair had jumped on the back of weak reports. The greenback had then fallen over 0.39 percent despite upbeat US Q1 GDP figures.

In the Asian trading session, after remaining silent for a while, the pair started upsurging. The EUR/USD pair elevated from 1.1148 levels reaching near 1.1160 levels. This rise again gets discounted to the US Dollar Index plunge earlier the day. There are quite a few bearish US events lined up for the day. The market was incurring the upcoming losses in advance on that front.

Meanwhile, Sunday Spanish elections reported that the PSOE (Partido Socialista Obrero Español) party retained the ruling position. This socialist party has acquired 123 Parliamentary seats and is looking for a coalition to work in the majority. This news develops optimistic wrapping around the political conditions in the EMU region. Perhaps, a green signal for the EUR/USD pair to rebound losses.
