EUR futures: extra consolidation likely
In light of CME Group’s advanced figures for EUR futures markets, investors trimmed their open interest positions for the first time after three consecutive builds by almost 4K contracts on Wednesday from Tuesday’s final 518,941 contracts. In the same direction, volume shrunk by nearly 11K contracts, recording the fourth consecutive drop.
EUR/USD within range so far
The upside in EUR/USD remains capped by the proximity of the 100-day SMA around 1.1480 for the time being amidst declining open interest and volume. The inability of spot to move higher should prompt some consolidation in the near term, but the wider 1.12-1.15 range is set to prevail in the short-term horizon.
