Technical Analysis

EUR/USD

The largest investment bank Goldman Sachs recommended selling the US dollar in a note to investors on Friday. Bank analysts see no prospects for USD growth until the end of the year.

If EUR/USD gains a foothold above 1.18300, traders may start actively buying the euro again. If this scenario occurs, the bullish trend may continue to 1.20000.

EUR/CHF

The pair may reverse from the strong support level of 1.07400.

EUR/GBP

We believe that one of the most realistic scenarios for this asset is a drop in quotations to the lower border of the descending channel.
