EUR / USD downside risk remains
Technical commentary: EUR/USD
Despite that current price remains contained within the upward sloping 12 week price channel, downside risk remains on the table provided that the potential bearish pennant pattern proves true e.g the pattern is completed with a price break below the lower line (see chart). Downside prospects towards the 1.0870s can not be ruled out, while upside risk seen above the 1.1040s (see chart).
