    An upbeat Eurozone Q4 GDP and a weaker-than-expected industrial production figures failed to have any impact on the EUR, leaving the EUR/USD pair unaffected around 1.1280 levels.

    Awaits US data

    The spot fell to 1.1265 on the back of a rally in the European stocks, before recovering to near 1.13 levels ahead of the Eurozone data. The quarter-on-quarter GDP rose to 0.3%, while the industrial production contracted 1% m/m. However, both data sets were ignored by the pair.

    The focus now is on the US advance retail sales data, which is expected to show household spending, rebounded in January following a drop in December.
