    FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The single currency keeps its buoyant tone at the beginning of the year, with EUR/USD hovering over the 1.0940 area.

    EUR/USD supported by PMIs, risk aversion

    Better results from euro zone manufacturing PMIs during December have lent the pair further support today, adding to the already strong sentiment derived from a renewed sentiment towards the risk aversion that has been prevailing since the opening bell in Asia.

    Next of relevance for the pair will be the preliminary inflation figures in Germany during December, with prior surveys seeing the CPI advancing at an annual pace of 0.6%. Across the pond, US ISM Manufacturing and Markit’s manufacturing PMI will also be in the limelight.

    EUR/USD levels to consider

    At the moment the pair is up 0.57% at 1.0923 facing the next hurdle at 1.1046 (200-day sma) followed by 1.1130 (61.8% Fibo of 1.1496-1.0538) and then 1.1158 (downtrend from 1.1713). On the other hand, a breakdown of 1.0808 (low Jul.20) would aim for 1.0753 (23.6% Fibo of 1.1496-1.0538) and finally 1.0538 (low Dec.3).
