The expectations are for the corrective movement to be limited to the main support at 1.1918 and for the currency pair to re-test the aforementioned resistance at 1.1988. This week, investors will focus on the European Central Bank’s interest rate decision (Thursday; 11:45 GMT), as well as on the initial jobless claims data (Thursday; 12:30 GMT) and the new home sales data for the U.S. (Friday; 14:00 GMT).
