EUR/USD sentiment



"Reports of very large 1.3400 option expiry at today's New York cut, said to be 2.16 bln. Big enough to exert some gravitational pull I guess," comments Gerry Davies from FXBeat. "German' supply noted up at 1.3410/20, buy stops gathering through 1.3420. Downside, buy orders clustered down at 1.3320/40,"
