It may be Halloween but there’s been nothing too scary about the markets so far.
EUR pairs have seen mixed fortunes amid a raft of data that saw EZ CPI softer but GDP and jobless a tad better.
EURUSD had an early move up to test 1.1650 from 1.1625 only to drop back there into/on the CPI data and we’ve been steady since. Options at 1.1600 set to support.                                                     EURUSD 15mEURGBP had a look at 0.8820-30 offers/res but gave up and dropped back to post 0.8794 before also steadying while EURJPY has nudged its way up to 131.86 from 131.50 as USDJPY survived a look below 113.00 to post 113.43 so far. Option expiry demand also notable.
The EURGBP supply has helped underpin GBPUSD which had a look below 1.3200 but has since been steady around 1.3215 after the rally failed at 1.3224
