Yesterday’s EU and US data had almost no impact on EUR/USD. German Ifo Business Climate was worse than expected as the final figure declined to 106,2. As for US Durable Goods Orders, this macroeconomic indicator increased to 1,5% from 0,4% last time. However, market participants wait for Yellen’s speech that is to take place today (we expected it yesterday).
It means that there is a possibility of high volatility during the event. We give no recommendations as it is necessary to open trades right after the event.

US Prelim GDP data may show minor decline to 1,1% from 1,2% previous estimate.
