EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro May Rise But Downtrend Unbroken

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro May Rise But Downtrend Unbroken

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

  • Extending higher threatens to put dominant downtrend into question
  • Near-term chart setup hints upside momentum may be ebbing already
