Key Quotes

“Downward momentum has slowed; spot has failed to break to a new low, some near‐term studies, like the MACD, have shifted to bullish signals and spot is trading in a narrow range”.

“All of this suggest there is some hesitancy to push EUR lower and that the market is catching its breath before finding a catalyst to take it another leg lower”.

“The key level is 1.3333, the low from August 6th, a test below here would open up further near-term downside risk; however should it holds it confirms a period of rest for EUR”.
