EUR/USD higher on USD-selling, looks to Draghi

Spot is advancing for the third consecutive session so far on Monday, prolonging the up move from the second half of last week as investors keep adjusting to the mixed results from the US monthly labour report published on Friday.

In addition, the selling pressure stays unabated around the greenback following June’s payrolls and increasing tensions on the US-China trade front, all sustaining the mild market sentiment towards the risk-off trade.

Data wise in Euroland today, German trade surplus came in at €20.3 billion in May, matching expectations. Later in the session, ECB’s P.Praet and President M.Draghi are due to speak along with the release of the Sentix index for the current month.

On the other hand, a break below 1.1718 (monthly low Dec.12 2017) would open the door to 1.1662 (10-day sma) and then 1530 (low Jun.19).
