EUR/USD Showing Signs of Continued Bearish Momentum

The EUR/USD currency pair has continued trading lower, boosted by the dollar positive jobs data. It now trades toward channel support as well as horizontal support. Yesterday’s extended candle wick indicated a rejection of lower prices however, added momentum off the back of the better than expected NFP may result in a retest of this area of confluence.

In further support of a continued move lower, is the appearance of negative divergence on the RSI, as price made higher highs while the indicator made lower highs. The initial litmus test remains the zone around 1.1790 which then brings into focus the 1.1760 level, however, the psych level of 1.1700 remains key to entertaining the idea of a reversal.
