EUR/USD at 1.1202. Oil prices slightly fell.

EUR/USD had a volatile session today. As of 1:00 PM EDT the currency pair was trading at 1.1202, unchanged from the previous close.

UOB Group analysts provided their outlook on EUR/USD today. “As highlighted yesterday, extension lower to 1.1140/45 would not be surprising but a clear and sharp drop below this level is not expected. Overall, the bearish phase that started earlier this week is intact unless there is a break above 1.1320 (1.1295 is already a strong short-term level)” written in the report.
