EUR/USD at Support Ahead of US Retail Sales- Resistance into 1.15

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook: EURUSD failed to rally through the May high-day close at 1.1443 with the pullback now approaching the weekly opening range lows at the 1.1356/67 support zone highlighted last week. The focus remains on this key range heading into tomorrow’s U.S. Retail Sales release with a rally to ultimately offer more short-entries higher up.

The immediate risk remains for a swing higher from here with a breach targeting 1.1465, 1.1495 & key resistance at 1.1512/16. This region is defined by the 61.8% retracement of the recent decline & the August 25th reversal-day close and we’ll reserve this region as our bearish invalidation level (favorable short entries here). A break lower keeps the short-bias in play targeting the February high-day close at 1.1320 backed by 1.1260 and the April lows at 1.1214.
