Significant Economic Events Impacting EUR/USD This Week:

Technical Analysis

EURUSD is currently holding support at the price of 1.06606. However, it is currently in a downtrend, with a descending trendline defining the price range. It is advisable to wait and observe the price behavior to see if it breaks out upwards or continues downwards. If it continues to decline, you can open a sell position, aiming to test the price level of 1.06606 again.
