Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) rebound unlikely to last
EUR/USD has been gaining ground following last week’s sell-off, with the selling pressure easing somewhat. However, the wider bearish trend remains intact, and there is a strong chance that this rebound is going to falter before long.
With that in mind, watch for a potential bearish reversal in the near future, with short-term upside being viewed as a precursor to another bearish shift. This bearish view remains in play unless we see a rally above the $1.15 swing high.
