    Pair's Outlook
    On Wednesday the most popular FX cross was testing the 1.08 area, which is reinforced by 55-day SMA at monthly pivot point. However, by the end of American trading the pair bounced off to close near 20-day SMA at 1.0880. The short-term action is still estimated to be bearish, given that EUR/USD keeps hovering under the two-month trend-line. By violating that crucial 1.08 zone, the pair will be exposed to a selloff down to 1.0750 (lower Bollinger band), followed by another downtrend at 1.0650. Such a case is presently expected by weekly/monthly technical indicators.

    Traders' Sentiment
    Yesterday the share of long traders went up from 45% to 46%, while commands to acquire the single European currency jumped above 50% in both narrow and wide ranges from the current market price.
