EUR/USD is testing the nearest support level at 1.2080. If this test is successful, EUR/USD will move towards the next support level which is located near January lows at 1.2060. RSI is still in the moderate territory, and there is plenty of room to gain downside momentum in case the right catalysts emerge.
In case EUR/USD declines below the support at 1.2060, it will head towards the next support level at 1.2040. A move below the support at 1.2040 will push EUR/USD towards the psychologically important support level at 1.2000. There are no important levels between 1.2040 and 1.2000 so this move may be fast.
