EUR/USD Further upside in lost traction – UOB
Our preference: short positions below 1.1132 with targets at 1.1107 & 1.1097 in extension.Alternative scenario: above 1.1132 look for further upside with 1.1142 & 1.1157 as targets.
FX Strategists at UOB Group noted the bullish outlook on EUR/USD appears to have lost some momentum
despite a test of 1.1180 still remains on the cards.
24-hour view: “EUR traded in a relatively narrow range between 1.1074 and 1.1107 before ending the day slightly higher at 1.1098 (+0.18%). The quiet price action offers no fresh clues and EUR could continue to trade sideways for today, likely between 1.1080 and 1.1125”.
Next 1-3 weeks: “EUR dipped to 1.1071 on Friday (25 Oct),
just one pip above our ‘strong support’ indicated in our last update on 23 Oct (spot at 1.1130). The prospect for further EUR strength has clearly diminished but there is still a slim chance that EUR could muster one more push high towards last week’s top near 1.1180. However, a break of 1.1070 would suggest EUR could trade sideways for a period”.
