EUR/USD Price Chart - Daily Timeframe

Technical Outlook: EURUSD broke above down-channel resistance (red) on November 14th with the subsequent test and rebound off that slope validating a break of the monthly opening-range highs. The rally stalled at the 1.1947/77 resistance barrier this week and the focus remains on a breach of this threshold to mark resumption of the broader up-trend targeting 1.2167. Interim support and bullish invalidation rests at 1.1790 where the 100-day moving average converges on the 11/15 reversal-day close.

Notes: A closer look at price action shows the pair continuing to trade within the confines of a well-defined ascending channel formation with Euro rebounding off the lower parallel today in U.S. trade. The advance is now testing weekly open resistance at 1.1924. We’re likely to see some kickback from here, but the near-term outlook remains weighted to the long side while within this formation with a break higher targeting the 78.6% retracement / slope resistance at 1.1977/85- a breach above this region is needed to clear the way for a larger advance with such a scenario targeting the yearly high-day close at 1.2043 backed by the 2017 high at 1.2092.

Bottom line: Look for a break of the 1.790-1.1977 range for near-term guidance. We’ll favor fading weakness while above 1.1800 with a breach above downslope resistance (blue) needed to mark resumption.
