  • Despite the stalemate between Greece and the EU, EUR/USD looks poised to retain the range-bound price action amid the ongoing string of closes above the 1.1300 handle.
  • Long-term outlook remains bearish as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains the downward trend from back in October 2013.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows the retail crowd remains net-short EUR/USD throughout the Greek bailout talks, with the ratio currently sitting at -1.76.

GBP/USD Daily Chart
  • GBP/USD may face a larger pullback should the RSI fail to retain the bullish momentum carried over from the previous month especially as the pair breaks out of the descending channel from back in July.
  • As the U .K. Consumer Price Index (CPI) highlights stickiness in core inflation, the Bank of England (BoE) Minutes may continue to highlight a hawkish forward-guidance for monetary policy as the central bank anticipates faster wage growth in 2015.
  • Key region of interest continues to come in around the former support zones around 1.5500-15.
