    The single currency paid no attention to the German GDP figures, with EUR/USD recovering some ground after Monday’s sell-off and trading around 1.1040.

    EUR/USD attention to IFO

    Spot has practically ignored German GDP figures, showing the economy has expanded in line with expectations during the last three months of 2015: 0.3% QoQ and 2.1% on a yearly basis. Traders will pay more attention to the upcoming IFO results, however, where lower prints are expected.

    In the meantime, the pair is looking to extend the recovery after an ephemeral test of the psychological 1.10 handle at the beginning of the week, today sustained by a mild bias towards the risk aversion.

    EUR/USD levels to watch

    The pair is now up 0.10% at 1.1035 facing the next resistance at 1.1114 (20-day sma) followed by 1.1220 (23.6% Fibo of December up-move) and then 1.1378 (high Feb.11). On the other hand, a break below 1.1000 (low Feb.22/psychological handle) would target 1.0965 (61.8% Fibo of December up-move) and finally 1.0709 (YTD low Jan.5).
