EUR/USD Reverses Earlier Gains, Halts Decline After US Services Sector Data

February 5, 2018 by

While EUR/USD was moving up at the start of the current trading session, it halted its rally at 9:15 GMT and started to move down subsequently. The currency pair attempted to rebound following the release of US services sector data, but it had limited success so far.

Markit services PMI slid from 53.7 in December to 53.3 in January according to the final estimate. It was unchanged from the preliminary reading and in line with market expectations. (Event A on the chart.)

ISM services PMI climbed from 56.0% in December to 59.9% in January. The actual value exceeded the average forecast of 56.5%. (Event B on the chart.)
