Current situation

A daily chart shows that the pair is in the range between the marks 1.1000 and 1.1170. The euro remained within the middle-term descending channel in the 4 hours chart. The instrument found a very solid support around 1.1000 (a strong psychological level). The resistance is seen at 1.1130, the support lies at 1.1050.

MACD is in the negative area. The histogram decreased which indicates the sellers’ strength. RSI bounced from the oversold area, its signal line grew that indicates buyers’ growing strength.
