The EUR/USD pair fell, trimming most of the last two-week gains and losing the 1.1200 figure, also undermined by softer-than-expected Chinese data, which revived concerns about the global economic slowdown, and, as the Union stands at the edge of the cliff, was among the most affected.

That includes the Fibonacci 161.8% one-month, the Bollinger Band 4h-Middle, the Simple Moving Average 200-1h, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week, the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day, the Pivot Point one-day Support 1 and more.
