[COLOR=#444444][FONT=Arial][B]The [URL="http://www.forexcrunch.com/category/forex-weekly-outlook/eur-usd-outlook/"]EUR/USD[/URL] rally after the fiscal cliff agreement was short-lived, as the euro continues to lose ground against the dollar. The pair continues to show quite a bit of volatility. In fundamental news, Spanish and German employment figures looked very good. Spanish Unemployment Change was outstanding, posting a sharp drop of 59.1 thousand. This surprised the markets which had expected an increase of 50.3K. In Germany, the Unemployment Change indicator easily beat the estimate for the second straight month. In the US, the markets will be watching two key employment releases – ADP Non Farm Employment Change and Unemployment Claims. The other highlight is the minutes from the FOMC’s most recent policy meeting.[/B][/FONT][/COLOR]
