EURUSD (Daily Chart)
Eurodollar set another boring down move after dollar consecutively went high. Eurodollar still under 1.18 then holding at 1.1765 level for recently low bound support and seemingly without remarkable price gathering support for further downside. On the other hand, both 15 and 60-long SMAs remaining down trend whilst RSI indictor is paltry above 30 figures, which suggests a selling mode, implying further bearish momentum ahead at the list for short-run, we believe.
On the slid way, we foresee the current price level, 1.1765, would be pivotal support for bullish favored. In the light of lacking supportive level in downside, if price tamps down currently level, we see price will get out of hands to further lower position.
Resistance: 1.1805, 1.1838, 1.1872

Meanwhile, the RSI indicator set at 68.82 figure, suggesting an optimistic downwind trend ahead.
On surge way, we could not find out there has other barricades ahead once it penetrates upon price cluster. However, yen have been through a dark winter, a 5.9% year-to-date declined. Since we believe the possibility for an edge up still quite high by combing the stance aforementioned, but amplitude could be limited.
Support: 109.47, 109.24, 108.37
