EUR/USD at 1.1239. Oil prices slightly fell.

EUR/USD slightly rose during Asian session today. As of 3:00 AM EDT the pair was trading at 1.1239, which represents a 0.16% increase from the previous close.

The analysts at UOB provided their bearish outlook on EUR/USD today. “While the break below 1.1230 bodes well for our bearish EUR view, the downward momentum is not as impulsive as we would like and this coupled with the strong support at 1.1145 suggests that EUR may struggle to move below this level. As such, those who are short may like to take partial profit at this level.” written in the report.
