On the upside, the pair is expected to face a hurdle near 1.1444, the 23.6% fib level ahead of 1.1659, the 38.2% fib level. The technical bias will remain bearish as long as the 1.1532 resistance area is intact.

The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the Eurozone remained 0.67% in the fourth quarter as compared to 0.80% in the same month of the year before, the average forecast of different economists say.
