As well German retail sales as French Consumer confidence and  y/y CPI beat expectations. The retail sales numbers are pretty volatile but combined with the French numbers beating forecasts,  Euro crosses are in demand rather than EURUSD , where the USD’s been underpinned by higher NFP expectations after Wednesday’s roaring ADP( 250K)
More Eurozone PPI ,PMI and CPI’s to hit the wires this morning so watch crosses . EURGBP  yesterday’s resistance area 0.8920/30 is again to be monitored if we see a similar trend.
EURJPY 135.95/00 to watch as an intermediate support now . A further beat on the EUR data to see a further gradual rise towards the 137.00/500 zone.
