General overview

Euro could not strengthen its position after the positive Eurozone macro reports. Eurozone unemployment rate unexpectedly fell to the lowest level since August 2011 (10.3%) compared to the forecast and the previous value of 10.4%. Meanwhile, manufacturing PMI from Markit rose to 51.2 from 51.0. Apparently, the market finally decided what to expect from the upcoming ECB meeting after consumer price deflation zone release and the euro remained indifferent to fresh figures.

The first support lies at 1.0800 and then at 1.0680. The first resistance stands at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.
