The single currency continues to remain under pressure to the downside as it attempts to clear the 1.0400 handle. A closure above this level could see the single currency attempt to rally back to 1.0500 – 1.0533 resistance level. A higher low is required to validate the potential move towards the first resistance zone of 1.0500 – 1.0533.
