The technical bias shall remain bearish as long as the 1.1300 level is intact.

Eurozone GDP

Eurozone GDP rose 0.3% in the third quarter according to the flash data released by Eurostat. This was in line with market expectations and also in line with the rate recorded for the second quarter. In annual terms, there was a 1.6% gain, also unchanged from rate seen for the previous quarter and a slight slowdown from the 1.7% rate seen for the first quarter of 2016. There is the potential for the overall Eurozone economy to strengthen at a slightly faster pace in the fourth quarter given that there is likely to be a stronger performance for Germany.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, buying the pair around current levels may be a good strategy if we get a valid bullish reversal candle on the daily chart.
