- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.2173, 1.2080, 1.1929
- Resistance:1.2246, 1.2324, 1.2418
The Euro sank to a 28-month low against the US Dollar, with sellers now aiming to breach the 1.22 figure. A daily close below the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion at 1.2173 exposes the 76.4% level at 1.2080.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines for now and wait for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
