EUR/USD keeps targeting 1.096 before US GDP

"There was some short covering in the euro             after the inflation data. The numbers are mostly better than expected. The euro             was also supported as I sense the market has largely pushed out a March rate hike by the Fed."
- Mizuho Bank (based on Bloomberg)

Pair's Outlook
EUR/USD             rallied for a fourth consecutive day on Thursday and touched the closest resistance area around 1.0950/70. Friday's Asian session is registering some profit taking, but US GDP later in the day will be a key driver for this currency pair. A negative surprise can result in a climb above 100-day SMA at 1.0972, followed by another formidable supply near 1.1050 (200-day SMA ; weekly R2). Positive data, however, should pave the way for EUR/USD's drop toward 55-day SMA at 1.0835, which is preceded by two-month uptrend 15 pips more from the upside.

Traders' Sentiment
SWFX bears remain in the majority of 55% for open positions. Meanwhile, pending orders deteriorated again to be bearish in 53% and 51% of all cases in 50/100-pip ranges, respectively.
