EUR/USD Tests Support Ahead of US Retail Sales and CPI

EUR/USD has retraced around 1.15% post the second-round vote of the French presidential election.

The retracement was held above the support line at 1.0850 since yesterday.

On the 4-hourly chart, the 10 SMA is crossing over the 20 SMA, indicating the bearish momentum is waning.

The daily Stochastic Oscillator reading is below 20, suggesting a rebound.

However, if the support line at 1.0820 is broken, then we can expect an extended downtrend.

We will see the release of a set of crucial US data for April at 13:30 BST today; retail sales, retail sales excluding autos, CPI and core CPI. Please be aware that it will likely affect USD and USD crosses along with commodities.

With better-than-expected readings, it will likely weigh on EUR/USD, and tests supports.
With lower-than-expected readings, it will likely push EUR/USD up, and tests resistances.

The resistance level is at 1.0880, followed by 1.0900 and 1.0930.
The support line is at 1.0850, followed by 1.0835 and 1.0820.
