EUR/USD surrenders to pressure – breaks below 1.30 –


The rising unemployment, lower inflation and deepening recession sent the euro below the all important line of 1.30.EURUSD Below 1 3000 March 1 2013

Support is at 1.2960, followed by 1.2880. Resistance above 1.30 is at 1.3030. Update: EUR/USD reached the next support line of 1.2960 before retreating, following the better than expected ISM Manufacturing PMI.

The break awaits confirmation. The pair is till battling with this line.

For more levels, see the EURUSD forecast.

Italian unemployment leaped and the rate for all of the euro-zone rose as well. In addition, the level inflation also declined to 1.8% on an annual basis.

The euro has been on the back foot since the Italian elections. After falling to the wide range of 1.30 to 1.3170, the pair is on the brink of losing that level.

There is one man who could confirm the break and much more: Mario Draghi. The president of the ECB could provide a very bearish statement or even cut the interest rates in the upcoming meeting.
