- EUR/USD bulls stay in control and target a deeper correction for the day ahead.
- The 61.8% ratio is within reach, but Russia remains a threat and the bulls are not out of the woods yet.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday said he was “ready” to work with the West on de-escalating tensions, the latest signal that the prospect of war with Ukraine could be receding.

However, the bulls are not out of the woods yet and the situation is on a knife's edge still. US President Joe Biden said "we have not yet verified the Russian military units are returning to their home bases. Indeed, our analysts indicate that they remain very much in a threatening position." The President also underscored that "Russia has more than 150,000 troops circling Ukraine and Belarus and along Ukraine's border, and invasion remains distinctly possible."
Markets can turn on a dime at the drop of a disruptive Russian headline, and the 1.11 area is by no means a distant possibility.
