Technical Analysis:
The price has fallen halfway through a major falling trend channel based on D1 chart and is currently supported within a key support zone, signaling for a retracement before further depreciation.
In M15 chart, a crab was formed at the bottom of the key support zone at 1.0964, signaling for the price to gain and rebound, and made its major retracement within the major falling  trend channel.
Market Sentiment:
There is fresh news to show any sign of the direction of both the Euro and the dollar. Generally, the dollar will still be slightly stronger based on monetary policy stance that the Fed is moving towards raising interest rate. But before dollar strengthens any further it is bound to retrace at some point and now is the point based on the technical chart.

There was a sideways consolidation just before the price resumes depreciation. I waited patiently and ignore the noise even though I kept seeing the price going along and against me over and over again.
Always stick to my trading plan. The risk has been decided so there is nothing to be fear of.
