EUR/USD closed lower on Friday extending Thursday's decline. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Monday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. Closes below Monday's low crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term top has been posted. If it renews the rally off January's low, the 75% retracement level of the November-January decline crossing is the next upside target.
