The market has been calm and quiet today. Fundamental data is making almost no impact on currency rates as Europe and the USA are celebrating Christmas.  From technical point of view, the EUR/USD is trading within a narrow range of 1.2226-1.2160. The price dropped behind the middle line of the Bollinger bands indicator at 1.2212 and resumed a downward movement. The bulls are probably targeted at the level of 1.2160, as its breakdown will allow the pair to drop further to the level of 1.2100.

Resistance levels: 1.2212, 1.2270.

Trading tips
