Talking Points:

- EURUSD breaks overnight low of 1.3785, eyes 1.3745 intraday.

- Euro looks toppish overall - EURAUD might be heading to 1.5000.

Euro-Zone PMI readings came in mixed, and the Euro is falling through notable levels of support versus the Australian and US Dollars. For the EURUSD, a break through the overnight low of 1.3785 squares up a test of last week's low of 1.3745. Today's H4 reversal is notable as it showed price failing at the Feb-Mar uptrend near 1.3825.

For the EURAUD, a move below last week's low gives greater confidence for a move towards 1.5000. Further weakness in EURAUD fits in neatly with the patterns we covered last week in AUDUSD and GBPAUD - see the report from Friday for more details.
