FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The common currency remains entrenched in the negative territory today, with EUR/USD navigating in the 1.0870 area so far. EUR/USD sidelined ahead of Payrolls The pair is coming down after climbing as high as the 1.0940 area in late NA session on Thursday, and is now seems to have stabilized in the 1.0870/80 band ahead of critical releases across the pond and against a backdrop of rising risk appetite. In fact, market expectations see the US economy to have created 200K jobs during the last month and the unemployment rate to have stayed put at 5.0%. Previously, German Industrial Production has contracted more than forecasted 0.3% during November and the trade surplus shrunk to €19.7 billion in the same period. EUR/USD levels to watch The pair is retreating 0.53% at 1.0875 with the immediate support at 1.0837 (55-day sma) followed by 1.0798 (50% Fibo of 1.0538-.1059) and then 1.0538 (low Dec.3). On the other hand, a break above 1.1032 (100-day sma) would target 1.1059 (high Dec.15) en route to 1.1136 (5-month downtrend). For more information, read our latest forex news.
