- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.0888, 1.0814, 1.0740

A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansionat 1.0888 exposes the 1.0814-18 area (50% level, May 27 low). Alternatively, a move above the 23.6% Fib at 1.0980 opens the door for a challenge of the 14.6% expansion at 1.1036.
Prices are too close to support to justify entering short in line with our long-term outlookfrom a risk/rewardperspective. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
