EUR/USD technical perspective



From a technical perspective, Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet notes that the EUR/USD holds a neutral tone, trading within familiar ranges. According to Bednarik, it will take a clear break through 1.3510 to confirm some bearish momentum, eyeing then 1.3475. “Steady gains above 1.3612 on the other hand, may see price advancing up to 1.3640/50 area, albeit further gains are not seen at the time being”.
