US Economic Data Comes Mixed, the Dollar Gets Confused

The US home sales missed the expectations a while ago. The Chicago consumer sentiment on the other hand exceeded them, which makes this round of US economic data a mixed bag.

Not that the economic data has much to say in the forex market nowadays (unless it's something really important), but the Buck seems sort of confused.

EUR/USD dived to 1.0560s from 1.0620 and USD/JPY jumped to 112.40s. Remember that this level used to be strong support until a while ago, so it will likely provide some sort of resistance now. We might as well open a sell forex signal up here.

Anyway,  EUR/USD recuperated half the losses after the initial wave of selling, but it's slipping down again now. So, hopefully our signal in this forex pair reaches its TP target soon.
