Markets eye US retail sales data which is to be released toay for further direction. The flattening of US yield curve is putting pressure on USD.

    • EUR/USD’s near term support is around 1.16500 (20- day MA) and any break below will drag the pair to next level till 1.1600/1.1500.Any break below 1.1500 confirms minor weakness and decline till 1.1400/1.13600 is likely.
    • On the higher side, near term resistance is around 1.1750 (50- day MA) and any break above will take the pair to next level till 1.1795/1.1850/1.1900.
