EUR/USD ECB Setup- Outlook Remains Constructive Above 1.1140

Chart Created Using TradingView

Technical Outlook: Euro rallied into a key near-term resistance confluence in New York today at 1.1269/73. This region is defined by the 100% extension of the advance off last week’s low, the 61.8% retracement of the decline off the August high and the upper parallel extending off last week’s high. We highlighted this region last night on SB Trade Desk and while our broader focus remains higher in the pair, we’re on the lookout for a pullback to offer more favorable long-entries.

Interim support rests at 1.1229/31 backed by 1.1197 where the 50% retracement converges on a basic median-line parallel- are of interest for exhaustion / long-entries. A break below the weekly opening range lows at 1.1139 would be needed to shift the broader focus back to the downside.

A breach of the highs targets trendline resistance extending off the August high backed by 1.1314/18. More significant resistance is eyed at the 61.8% retracement of the decline off the 2016 high at 1.1347.For the complete setup and to continue tracking this trade & more throughout the week- Subscribe to SB Trade Desk.
