The EUR/USD is pulling back from weekly highs this morning, after trading higher for the last five consecutive sessions. Currently the pair is testing pivot support near 1.1329. This area is depicted below as the S3 pivot, and is daily support for today’s 45 pip range. If prices bounce at support, this re-opens the EUR/USD to print new weekly highs over 1.1366. In this bullish scenario, traders should continue to monitor resistance found at the R3 and R4 pivots. They are located at 1.1379 and 1.1397.

In the event of a full bearish reversal, traders should watch for the EUR/USD to trade through the S4 pivot at 1.1306. Prices have already tested this value once, putting today’s low in at 1.1304. A sustained move below this value should be seen as significant as it would be the first bearish breakout this week. In this scenario traders may extrapolate a 1X extension of today’s 45 pip range to find initial bearish targets near 1.1261.
