EUR/USD 30Minute Chart
Chart prepared by Walker England
The EUR/USD has opened Wednesdays trading range bound, traveling between its R3 and S3 Camarilla pivots pictured above. At present, price is testing range support which is found at a price of 1.1200. If the EUR/USD bounces from support, it opens the EUR/USD to move back towards key values of resistance. This includes range resistance at 1.1243 which is represented by the R3 pivot. A move back towards values of resistance would be considered significant, as prices would be trading back in the direction of the pair’s daily trend.
In the event that the EUR/USD fails to remain supported above today’s S4 pivot at 1.1178, it opens the EUR/USD to challenge new weekly lows below 1.1155. Traders may begin looking for opportunities to trade fresh breakouts below the S4 pivot point which is found at 1.1178. Traders looking to target a 1X extension of today’s 43 pip range, may initially start looking for targets near 1.1135. If prices really at support, bullish breakouts may occur over the R4 pivot point at 1.1265. At this point traders may again extrapolate a 1X extension of the range, to find initial bullish breakout targets near 1.1308.
