Looking ahead on Monday, EURUSD looks bearish as the pair posted lower in Friday trading session.

For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 1.10169 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 1.09089. On the downside, we are looking at week low 1.08287 or 1.08008 (WS1) as immediate support level. EURUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below week low of 1.08287 would indicate selling pressure.
