For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 1.08055 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 1.07586. On the downside, we are looking at week low 1.06945 or 1.07117 (WS1) as immediate support level. EURUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below week low of 1.06945 would indicate selling pressure.
