EURUSD Tests The 1.10 Mark Ahead of Fed Decision


EURUSD is under selling pressure for one more day testing the 1.10 mark for second day in a row. Weak economic data out of the European Union didn’t help the pair. Confusing signals from Germany economy continues. Earlier today the Germany Gfk Consumer Confidence Survey came in at 9.9 beating forecasts of 9.6 in February. On the other hand the Germany Import Price Index came in at 0.2%, below the forecasts of 0.3% in December. The yearly reading came in at -0.7% also below estimates of  -0.6%.

Traders will focus later today on the Feds monetary policy decision. Expectations are for the Fed to keep interest rates unchanged and will look for any revision on the long term outlook.
