Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) Target 1.11
The Euro initially tried to rally during the trading session on Thursday, but then rolled over rather significantly. We continue to see a lot of US dollar strength, for a whole host of reasons. The ECB is extremely loose and of course the economic numbers in the European Union aren’t exactly anything to be looked at with envy.
The market is very likely to continue to reach towards the 1.11 handle, and then the even more important 1.10 level underneath which is not only psychologically important, but structurally important as well.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 1.12.
The projected lower bound is: 1.10.
The projected closing price is: 1.11.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 10.4350. This is an oversold reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses above 20 The last signal was a buy 3 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 34.34. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 181 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -167.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a sell 6 period(s) ago.
