    Pair's Outlook
    Yesterday the bears tried to take leadership over the EUR/USD currency pair, but all losses were ultimately eroded by revived bullish strength. Therefore, the cross keeps hovering around the February high at 1.1370, while getting ready for the release of FOMC meeting minutes later on Wednesday. A more hawkish surprise here will likely provoke a downshift in prices to the weekly pivot point at 1.1326, which is acting as the first immediate support line. However, aggregate daily technical studies are bullish and we are still not ruling out a spike towards the 1.15 area (Oct high; weekly R1). 

    Traders' Sentiment
    For a second consecutive day the total number of SWFX's bearish and bullish traders is holding at the same level of 60% and 40%, respectively.
