The research team at UOB provided their outlook on EUR/USD yesterday. “There is not much to add as EUR tested the 1.1330 support before rebounding quickly. The undertone is positive but momentum is patchy at best and it is unclear at this stage whether EUR strength could surmount the major 1.1495 resistance. That said, only a clear break below 1.1325/50 would indicate that the immediate upward pressure has eased” written in the report.
