    "As the euro zone currently seems to be in the calm eye of the current storm, and Draghi already had problems uniting the ECB for the December decision, we believe the ECB will keep dry the little powder it has left– at least for this week."
    - ING (based on WBP Online)

    Pair's Outlook
    Trading was purely technical during Monday sessions in Asia, Europe and US. EUR/USD saw dropping trading volumes to the lowest level since January 3, which triggered a marginal downward volatility to push the pair under 1.09. It refrains to return back into the bearish pattern, meaning our short-term positive outlook remains relatively intact. The pair is required to surge above 100-day SMA at 1.10 to confirm its positive intentions, but much higher turbulence will probably have to wait until full-of-data Wednesday.

    Traders' Sentiment
    The percentage of bullish open positions in the SWFX market has been flat at 44% since our previous report on Monday. At the same time, long pending orders in both 50 and 100-pip ranges from the spot tumbled to 50% and 44%, respectively.
