German ZEW Survey Overview

The ZEW will release its German Economic Sentiment Index and the Current Situation Index at 0900 GMT in the EU session later today, reflecting institutional investors’ opinions for the next six months.

The headline economic sentiment index is expected to rebound to 0.8 in April as against a -3.6 reading booked in the previous month. Meanwhile, the current situation sub-index is likely to decelerate further to 8.0 versus 11.1 recorded in March.     

How could affect EUR/USD?

FXStreet´s own Analyst, Haresh Menghani writes: “It would be prudent to wait for a sustained move beyond the mentioned barrier before traders start positioning for any further up-move towards reclaiming the 1.1400 round figure mark with some intermediate resistance near 61.8% Fibo. level, around mid-1.1300s.”

“On the flip side, weakness below the 1.1290-80 region (38.2% Fibo. level) now seems to find decent support near the lower end of the trend-channel, currently near the 1.1265 region, which if broken might turn the pair vulnerable to slide further below 23.6% Fibo. level, around the 1.1245 area, towards challenging the 1.1200 round figure mark,” Haresh adds.
