EUR/USD Current price: 1.3528View Live Chart for the EUR/USD
The recovery of the euro against the dollar was capped by the 1.3595 level on Tuesday, leaving the EUR/USD confined to a range today, unable to pick up momentum either side of the board against a backdrop of light economic data and with investors cautious ahead of the ECB meeting. Short-term indicators keep a slightly bearish tone, although as long as the pair holds above the 1.3460 support area, the broader positive bias dominates, with focus on 1.3710. On the other hand, loss of the 1.3460 (23.6% retracement of the 1.2660/1.3710 rally) would expose 1.3400/10 area ahead of the 1.3310/15 zone (38.2% retracement).
Support levels: 1.3490 1.3460 1.3410
Resistance levels: 1.3580 1.3600 1.3660
