EUR/USD Trapped In Trading Band As Dark Cloud Cover Offers Warning
- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred

EUR/USDremains trapped in a trading band between 1.2500 and 1.2755 with a Dark Cloud Cover formation warning of a retest of the recent lows. A close below the nearby floor would be required to open the next leg lower to the late August 2012 low at 1.2250.
