Open interest in EUR futures markets rose by nearly 3.5K contracts on Tuesday, reversing three consecutive drops according to preliminary prints from CME Group. On the opposite side, volume shrunk for the second session in a row, this time by around 35.3K contracts.
EUR/USD remains supported in the 1.1000/1.0990 area
Rising open interest against the backdrop of declining prices signals the possibility of further losses in the near term in EUR/USD. However, the persistent drop in volume could slow the pace of the downside and even spark some consolidation. That said, the 1.1000/1.0990 band is seen offering solid contention in case the bearish momentum accelerates.
