EUR/USD Muted Following Mixed ZEW Survey, Euro Risks Remains Lower

The Euro and DAX saw a subdued reaction following a mixed ZEW report. Economic sentiment fell to 29.9 from 31.7 a month prior, however, printed above expectations, while current conditions fell 7.4, missing estimates of 5.0. German Investor confidence weakened in December amid a fourth Covid wave, while persistent supply bottlenecks in manufacturing added to the layer of uncertainty surrounding Germany’s growth outlook.

What’s more, the ZEW President stated that the decline in economic expectations signals that optimism over a stronger growth outlook are beginning to fade. This in turn, has factored into the ECB’s thinking, given source reports suggesting that the central bank may wait until next year before announcing any notable policy changes.

EUR: Marginal softness for the Euro, and as noted last week, the bias remains to fade rallies in the Euro. Near-term support for the pair is situated at 1.1230-35 and below 1.1370, risks remain to the downside.

    • I'm currently bullish on AI project tokens, especially on Bitget, and I'm excited about their symbiotic relationship with blockchain technology, which is driving financial inclusion and innovation. Projects like SORA, SingularityNET's AGIX, The Graph (GRT), and Nebula AI's NMT are leading the way in transformative advancements across various sectors.
    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
    • If you've tried using Ethereum, you know it can get slow and expensive. Think of Starknet as a helper that makes everything faster and cheaper. It does this by taking a bunch of transactions, squishing them into one, and then processing that one. This means more transactions can happen at once without clogging up the system. For people making apps on the blockchain (they call these dApps), Starknet is like a dream come true because it lets their apps handle a lot more users without slowing down. It also gives them the freedom to make their apps work just how they want, making things better for users. When it comes to making money, Starknet charges fees to use its network and lets people 'stake' their coins – that's like putting your money in a savings account that helps the network run, and you get a little reward for that. So, what do you think about Starknet? It's all about helping Ethereum handle more action without any hassle. Could be a big deal for how we use digital money, right?
