Technical Analysis


The optimism of the European currency was due to market expectations for agreeing on the details of the EU stimulus fund, which will spend €750 billion for its purposes.

According to technical analysis, the asset will continue to decline to the upward support level. Confidence in the direction is underpinned by declining price highs.
