The pair paused a 2-week fall managed to close with 1.2% gain at the end of the week. The pair erased a half of its gains during Thursday and Friday's sessions. Finally, it managed to close above the 20Wsma.
Owing to lack of macroeconomic data, it is understandably a quiet week. Today, traders eye German industrial production. March's industrial production readings are well below expectations. Readings has been disappointing for more than a year. April's readings may change the direction. We expect mild positive readings this time.
