At time of writing, the EUR/USD is trading at the 1.3660 zone, 0.1% below its opening price, with the US calendar also empty for the rest of the day.

EUR/USD levels to watch

What's the sentiment for EUR/USD?

The latest data for the Currencies Forecast Poll released by on NFP Friday showed the EUR/USD average price target of 1.3610 for this week is only a 30 pips above last week's average, but still powering up. "The mode prints above the 1.37 figure suggesting more traders went from remaining cautiously bullish to openly enthusiastic towards the steady advance in the EUR/USD exchange rate", says Gonçalo Moreira, independent analyst. "Inversely, in the mid and long-term, poll participants show more lack of faith and expect the major pair to trade at 1.34 and 1.33".
