EUR/USD technical outlook

The rally of EUR/USD was capped by 1.1235/45, where the daily 20-SMA currently stands. A break and a consolidation on top of 1.1250 could trigger a bullish rally; while it remains below the short term perspective will continue to favor lateral movements between 1.1100 and 1.1240. Under 1.1100 the pair could become under pressure, increasing the odds of a decline toward 1.1015/30 (Aug 18, 19 low).
