On the negatives for the single currency emerge the so far increasing speculation of a potential recession in the region, which looks propped up by dwindling sentiment gauges as well as an incipient slowdown in some fundamental.

EUR/USD levels to watch

So far, the pair is losing 0.43% at 0.9953 and the breakdown of 0.9944 (weekly low September 16) would target 0.9863 (2022 low September 6) en route to 0.9859 (December 2002 low). On the other hand, the initial barrier emerges at 1.0197 (monthly high September 12) followed by 1.0202 (August 17 high) and then 1.0314 (100-day SMA).
