EUR/USD. February 2, 2021 Euro falls on weak data from Germany

The US dollar continues to trade near local highs in the 1.2050 area. Weak macroeconomic data from Germany put pressure on the European currency.

According to the European statistical agency Eurostat, unemployment in the region remained at 8.3% in December, in line with market expectations. At the same time, the volume of retail sales fell by 9.6% in December after growing by 1.1% a month earlier. Analysts had expected a 2.6% decline. On an annualized basis, sales growth was 1.5% against the forecast of 5%.

Today, the dynamics of the pair will be influenced by the report on the eurozone GDP. Analysts predict that the pace of economic decline in the region in the IV quarter should accelerate from -4.3% to -6.0%, which may provoke further sales of the single currency.
