The USD ended little changed on Wednesday after reaching a 13-month peak against a basket of currencies. Upbeat figures on U.S. retail sales, manufacturing output and worker productivity supported the greenback and the view of steady U.S. economic growth. But USD sell-off during the North American session suggests a corrective move is due. We opened EUR/USD long at 1.1350 yesterday and today’s price action confirms our bullish view.

We opened a short position at 111.40, as previously assumed. A close below 110.65, 50% of the 108.12-113.18 rise, would put in play Thursday’s 110.37 cloud base, the 61.8% at 110.05 and converging 100- and 200-day moving averages by 109.90.
