Euro Zone Manufacturing PMI

Earlier today during the London session, the Euro zone Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) was released by the Markit Economics. The forecast was slated for a rise from the last reading of 51.0 to 51.1 in February 2015. This was a bit on the lower side, but we cannot deny the fact that it stayed in the positive zone. The report mentioned that the rate of expansion in manufacturing production stayed around the same zone as of the last month, despite the fact that there was a slight improvement in growth of new order.

Furthermore, the rate of increase in total new business remained moderate and kind of affected the conditions. The EURUSD pair enjoyed the release and was seen trading higher after the release. The Chief Economist at Markit, Chris Williamson mentioned in the report that the “Euro Zone manufacturing sector barely expanded in February, highlighting the malaise that still hangs over the region’s goods-producing economy as a whole”.

German Manufacturing PMI

The Germany Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index was also released around the same time. The forecast was slated for no change from the last reading of 50.9 in February 2015. However, the outcome was on the positive side, as the German manufacturing PMI jumped by 0.2 points to 51.1. This was positive, and helped the EURUSD pair to some extent in the near term.

Technical Outlook – Euro

The Euro after trading as low as 1.1160 traded back higher. After the releases in the Euro zone, the EURUSD pair climbed back sharply and even closed above the 1.1200 resistance area. On the upside, the next hurdle lies around the 1.1240 level where the Euro sellers are likely to appear in the short term.
