Technical Outlook – Euro
The Euro continued to trade in a range against the US dollar, but with a bearish tone. The EURUSD pair traded higher earlier to test the 1.0800 levels, but failed to gain traction and moved back lower. Currently, it is testing an important support area at 1.0750, which holds the key and must be contained if the pair has to continue trading higher.
