EURO FORECAST & EUR PRICE ANALYSIS: EUR/USD & EUR/JPY PLUNGE TOWARD TREND SUPPORT

  • The Euro has taken a steep tumble as we embark into the new decade amid discouraging economic data in spite of recent ECB stimulus measures
  • EUR/USD price action has swooned by about 3.5% since December 31 and has steered the world’s most liquid currency pair to 3-year lows
  • EUR/JPY could sink further if risk-aversion lingers due to the economic shock stemming from the coronavirus outbreak

Euro weakness has accelerated as of late with EUR price action falling by 3.4% on balance since the start of the year according to the EXY Euro Currency Index with spot EUR/USD plunging about 380-pips over the same time frame.

Downside in the Euro can be primarily attributed to a stubbornly-sluggish Eurozone economy and is broadly reflected by a nosedive in the Citi Eurozone economic surprise index recently.

A flood of risk-aversion in response to the economic toll that the coronavirus outbreak stands to have on business supply chains and global GDP growth has also weighed negatively on EUR price action relative to safe-haven currencies like the US Dollar and Japanese Yen.

Correspondingly, spot EUR/USD is now trading at around 3-year lows after a slow-and-steady decline from February 2018 highs.

This bearish scenario likely carries greater credence if confluent support provided by the major currency pair’s 76.4% Fibonacci retracement of its trading range since early 2017 fails to bolster EUR/USD price action.

Although, the negatively-sloped trendline of support connecting its series of lower lows since August 2017 has potential to keep Euro downside limited.

Similarly, spot EUR/JPY has succumbed to the recent jump in currency volatility and drop in appetite for risk.

After slipping below its short-term uptrend line drawn through the September 2019, October 2019 and January 2020 lows, downside in spot EUR/JPY has potential to accelerate – particularly if coronavirus fears flare up again.

This brings to focus confluent support near the 115.00 mark as a possible downside target, which is approximately highlighted by the 76.4% Fib of the June 2016 to January 2018 trading range etched out by EUR/JPY.
