Euro Declines Against U.S. Dollar

EUR/USD is currently trying to settle below the support at 1.2155 while the U.S. dollar is gaining ground against a broad basket of currencies.

The U.S. Dollar Index managed to get above the 20 EMA at 90.20 and tries to develop additional upside momentum. In case this attempt is successful, it will head towards the resistance at 90.50 which will be bearish for EUR/USD.

On Friday, EU reported that Euro Area Retail Sales declined by 3.1% month-over-month in April compared to analyst consensus which called for a decline of 1.2%. On a year-over-year basis, Retail Sales increased by 23.9% as Retail Sales were extremely weak in April 2020.

Germany has recently released Factory Orders report which indicated that Factory Orders declined by 0.2% month-over-month in April compared to analyst consensus which called for growth of 1%.

Tomorrow, foreign exchange market traders will focus on the release of Euro Area ZEW Economic Sentiment Index for June. Analysts expect that ZEW Economic Sentiment Index increased from 84 in May to 84.9 in June, but recent economic reports suggest that traders should be ready for a negative surprise.
