As a result, EUR/USD prices are declining towards an upward sloping trend line from December 09, at 1.2179 now. Though, the 1.2200 round-figure may offer immediate support.

If at all the bears keep the reins below the stated support line, the 1.2100 threshold and the monthly low near 1.2040 will be on their radars.
