Looking at the euro currency (EUR) on the above EUR/USD daily MT 4 chart, the euro has recovered off a monthly low price point.
The EUR/USD Forex market is still trading above the two hundred and one hundred (200, 100) daily simple moving averages (SMA) and below the short term fifty (50) day simple moving average as price action remains to the downside as the new week begins.
Looking at the economic calendar for Monday, the European Union is not releasing any economic data. The United States will publish their monthly core and headline consumer price index (CPI) and the United Kingdom will see remarks from the Governor of the Bank of England Andrew Bailey and Monetary Policy Committee member Haskell.
With the lack of economic data on the calendar to start the week off, both the euro currency and the U.S. dollar could see price drifting. Headlines surrounding the stalled fiscal stimulus talks out of the United States could provide price volatility as well as continued Brexit drama.
Forex traders will also be watching coronavirus headlines as Berlin, and Paris have closed restaurants and pubs at night and Madrid has declared a state of emergency and new lockdown.
