    "The risk may be swinging back to downside in the euro. Current levels are a decent place to establish a short position anticipating strength in the dollar and U.S. rate hikes towards the second half of the year."

    Pair's Outlook
    After touching the previous week's high at 1.1392, the EUR/USD currency pair was sent considerably to the downside. The Euro is now declining for a third consecutive day on Monday, with trading levels located below 1.1150. Despite that, the price is still remaining above the 20-day SMA at 1.1044 and Mar 26 high at 1.1052. While the pair is hovering above these two supports, there is a good chance of recovery in the near-term.
