- EUR/USD has stabilised simply above 1.1400, having dropped again from earlier session highs within the 1.1480s.
- Technicians shall be eyeing a key stage of assist within the 1.1380 space.
EUR/USD promoting has continued into the US buying and selling session, although the bearish intra-day momentum has for the second eased with the pair discovering assist above the psychologically vital 1.1400 determine. At present ranges across the 1.1410 mark, the pair is buying and selling decrease by about 0.4% and is over 0.6% decrease versus its Asia Pacific session highs within the 1.1480s. Technicians shall be eyeing assist within the 1.1380 space within the type of the late-November/December highs.

Given the low volumes, skinny liquidity situations typical of late-Friday commerce, such a transfer would doubtless have to attend till subsequent week.
