The EURUSD was indecisive yesterday but overall still able to maintain its bearish bias, made another lower high and low. The bias remains bearish in nearest term testing 1.0950 as a part of the bearish scenario after formed a shooting star formation as you can see on my daily chart below. A clear break and daily close below 1.0950 could trigger further bearish pressure targeting 1.0800 area. Immediate resistance remains around 1.1070 (former support)(visit my profile for more details). A clear break above that area could lead price to neutral zone in nearest term testing 1.1120 but overall I prefer a bearish scenario at this phase and any upside pullback should be seen as a good opportunity to sell
