Flash: EUR/USD faces bearish outlook below 1.3020 – UBS

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - UBS Strategists, Gareth Berry and Geoffrey Yu take a technical perspective at today's EUR crosses and note that there is a generally neutral-trending bias ahead.

Support is at 1.2797 ahead of 1.2746, indicating a bearish outlook”. In terms of the EUR/CHF, resistance prompted the latest setback at 1.2661. While support at 1.2370 holds, the risk is for extension of the bull trend.

Support is at 0.8516 ahead of 0.8441, suggesting a neutral intraday view. Finally, concerning the EUR/JPY, the latest setback was staged from just under critical resistance at 134.38.
