Barclays’ analysts provided their technical setups for EUR/USD. “We are bearish and would prefer to use upticks around 1.1265 as an opportunity to sell at better levels. A move below our initial downside targets near 1.1145 would encourage our bearish view. Our next targets are in the 1.1055 area” written in the report.
