  • EUR/USD traded sideways to down throughout this Monday, consolidating the recent 170-pip bull move started last Thursday.  
  • EUR/USD is forming a bull flag and is consolidating near the 200-period simple moving average (SMA)  just below the 1.1700 figure. The next scaling points to the downside are seen in the 1.1640-1.1649 area and 1.1600-1.1613 zone; a bear breakout below that level would likely negate the bullish scenario.  
  • The bulls objective is to break above 1.1730-1.1740 area in order to initially target the 1.1760-1.1795 zone. The bull case is still  in place despite EUR/USD about to close near its low.
