    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/USD pair appears to have found strong support near 1.1360 region and remains on the bids, keeping range around 1.1380 levels as China fears-led risk-off market profile continues to underpin.

    EUR/USD capped below 1.1390 in recent dealings

    The EUR/USD pair trades 0.15% higher at 1.1377, unable to break through 1.1390 levels over the past few hours. The bid tone around the EUR/USD pair eased a bit heading into the American opening bells as the European indices halted the downslide and seem to stabilize somewhat, thus reducing the safe-haven bids for the euro. The pan European benchmark, the Euro Stoxx 50 remains nearly a percent lower while the DAX trimmed losses, now losing -1.03%.

    Further, the gains remain in check as markets continue to weigh the latest German ZEW report. The headline ZEW confidence index came in at 1.9 points in October, sharply lower from last month's 12.1 points, missing a 6.8 reading expected.

    Markets now eye the sentiment on the Wall Street to take fresh bets on the major amid lack of fundamental triggers lined up for release in the New York session ahead.

    EUR/USD Technical Levels

    The pair holds above all its daily major moving averages while the RSI remains above the mid-lines, pointing to further advances. Thus, to the upside, the major faces immediate resistance at 1.1400/11 (round number & Today’s High), beyond which a test of 1.1442-60 (Sept 17 & 18 Highs) would become imminent. While the immediate support is located at 1.1356/48 (50 & 5-DMA), a breach of the last would expose 1.1300 (psychological levels).
