Technical Analysis

  • EUR/USD is currently trading within a range with an upper limit at 1.1339 and a lower one at 1.1254. The pair tried to test the upper boundary but the selling pressure stopped its moving around 1.1322 at about 0800 GMT. Since then, the pair has been trading down and broke the support at 1.1295. Expect further weakness during the day as it looks like the momentum support at 37% is going to be broken as well.
