EUR/USD at 1.1261. Japan’s industrial production rose 0.5% in April.

EUR/USD fell during Asian session today. As of 3:00 AM EDT the pair was trading at 1.1261, which is 0.24% lower than the previous close.

UOB analysts provided their outlook on EUR/USD yesterday, suggesting a target of 1.12. “The anticipated extension lower in EUR was more rapid than expected and the undertone is clearly negative from here. That said, only a daily closing below 1.1200 would indicate that the current neutral outlook has shifted to bearish (for an immediate target of 1.1100). Overall, the downward pressure would continue to increase unless this pair can reclaim 1.1330 within these few days” written in the report.
