EURUSD Challenging Support as Bears Celebrate a Good Week’s Work
EURUSD is on its way to re-test the 1.1300 area as a combination of a weak Euro and a strong US dollar push the pair lower. EURUSD traded as high as 1.1460 on Monday before fading lower, leaving a chart with five red candles in a row this week. Yet the 1.1300 area has held firm over the last three months, aside from the mid-November sell-off and sharp reversal and is likely to prove strong support as we head into the weekend. Retail sentiment suggests that lower prices lie ahead while the RSI indicator is nearing oversold conditions and is at the lowest level since mid-November. If we break and close below 1.1300, a further sell-off to the 1.1260-1.1270 level should ensue before the previously mentioned November sell-off low at 1.12158.
Overall the technical set-up remains negative with eight daily lower highs in a row and with the pair below all three moving averages, yet support has proved robust since late-October and history may well repeat itself.
IG Client Sentiment data currently show retail are 65.1% net-long EURUSD, a bearish contrarian indicator. In addition, traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger EURUSD bearish contrarian trading bias.
