EURUSD Technical Outlook (Daily)
EURUSD: The EURUSD was under selling pressure Monday, in spite of US data which was overall soft, as markets continued focusing in the UK post-referendum consequences.
The single currency fell sub 1.1000 early Europe, testing 1.0970 before bouncing to end the day in the 1.1030 region, in the Red on the day.
The EU released its monetary figures for May, showing that the annual growth rate of the broad monetary aggregate M3 increased to 4.9%, from 4.6% in April.
In the US, the Goods Trade Deficit widened to $60.6-B, worse than market’s expectations of $59.5-B.

As all high yielders, the single currency is being weighed by the economic and political future of the region, after the UK voted to leave the EU. And despite turmoil has partially ease, it would take a long time for the markets to settle.
