This goes hand-in-hand with the EUR/USD fall that refreshed the weekly low on the previous day.
Risk reversals flash the -0.032 level, favoring EUR/USD bear by the press time, according to data provided by Reuters. The negative reading indicates call options are drawing lesser premium (option price) than put or bearish bets.
Technically, the currency major pair remains bullish unless breaking 1.2050-45 support confluence including 100-day SMA and an ascending trend line from March 31.
