Less shorts - good news for bears

Lack of economical drivers leaves the pair sensitive to technical factors. The latest CFTC data shows the number of net short positioning in EUR reduced by USD0.5bn after increasing by USD10.0bn in the prior 3 weeks. It’s good news for the euro bears, as corrective rebounds are less likely for now, however, we must not forget that the euro shorts are still at a historically high level. The key factor of pressure may be the USD strength at the moment. The nearest target to the upside may lie at 1.3392, while the bottom may be limited by 1.3325.
