Bears failed to push though the weekly PP yesterday, but this does not change the bearish outlook on the Euro. The ceiling is still at 1.11, while the July low at 1.0810 is the target, meaning any rallies will be of a correctional nature The negative bias is reinforced by the daily and monthly technicals. Even if the resistance trend-line is broken, the bears will have a good opportunity to recuperate at 1.1240 with the help of the 200-day SMA.
