The European Commission’s Eurostat arm reported the economic sentiment indicator for the euro area rose to 111.9 in August from a revised 111.3 the previous month and beating the consensus forecast of 111.3. Confidence in industrial and services businesses both improved more than forecast, while consumer confidence increased, though retail and construction indicators showed worse readings.

The ESI increased in three of the five largest euro-area economies, with Italy up 3.6, France 1.7 and Spain 1.4, while it eased 0.6 in Germany 0.9 in the Netherlands. For the European Union as a whole there was a slight reduction in economic sentiment to -0.3, which was mainly due to the worsening sentiment in the largest non-eurozone economy, the UK.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, selling the pair around current levels may be a good strategy in short to medium term.
