EURO TECHNICAL OUTLOOK: EUR/USD PRICE ACTION BUILDS SUPPORT AROUND 1.1700-HANDLE

  • EUR/USD price action remains under pressure after breaching its 50-day moving average
  • The Euro is hitting fresh month-to-date lows amid rising market volatility and risk aversion
  • EUR/USD now tests a critical technical support level slightly above the 1.1700-price level

EUR/USD is stretching lower this Tuesday with the Euro remaining under pressure against its US Dollar peer. The Euro has declined over 250-pips so far this month and currently trades at its weakest level since mid-August. Volatility has risen steadily over recent trading sessions as markets swoon and looks like the primary catalyst steering EUR/USD price action lower.

A breakdown below this zone of technical confluence could accelerate EUR/USD selling pressure. Looking ahead, the DailyFX Economic Calendar details upcoming event risk and data releases with potential of weighing materially on market sentiment. The scheduled testimonies from Fed Chair Powell, in addition to global PMI data on deck, stand out in particular.
