EUR/USD unchanged. Oil prices recovered.

EUR/USD was relatively stable today. As of the end of Asian session the pair was trading at 1.1164, unchanged from the previous close.

UOB analyst provided their neutral outlook on EUR/USD for the upcoming 1-3 weeks. “We continue to expect this pair to trade in a broad 1.1120/1.1375 range even though the immediate risk appears to be tilted to the downside. A clear break below 1.1120 could lead to a quick drop towards the next support near 1.1055. On a shorter-term note, 1.1280 is already a strong resistance (key resistance is at 1.1375)” written in the report.
