It's another soft economic day in the US as well. Concerns over Greek issue added the new factor into the bearish view. The euro is likely to remain under pressure on the back of growing concerns about Greece as no agreements between Greece and its creditors had been reached. The Greek exit from the eurozone is the most likely scenario. The euro group of finance ministers meets this Friday on April 24. The 50Dsma lies at 97.00 and 20Dsma is seen at 98.00. Probably, the double bottom was placed at 96.17 and 96.33. At today's Asian session, the index faced strong resistance at 98.10 multi-resistance level at the four-hour chart. Bulls can extend their paw towards 98.25, 98.35, 98.55, and 98.70.
