The EURUSD pair is still under bearish pressure because we are at this year’s low, and now there is a chance that we will go even lower. Our current support is 1.12500, but we can expect a further decline to 1.12000 if we do not get support.

- Break below the descent us to 1.12000 new minimum this year.
- A further drop in the price brings us to the EURUSD period of June 2020.
