The daily EUR/USD chart suggests that the pair may struggle to move in the short-term and that the path of least resistance is for lower prices. Today’s range is tight due to the US holiday and the pair sit just above the multi-week support around 1.2055. The pair have a small boost today, provided by a marginally weaker US dollar, but the recent downtrend remains in place. The pair have also opened below the 50-day simple moving average after breaking below the 20-day sma just over a week ago. The CCI shows EUR/USD as being heavily oversold. A break lower should see 1.2011 and 1.2000 tested in short-order before 1.1900 to 1.1920 comes into play. The short- and medium-dated moving averages at 1.2122 and 1.2204 provide initial levels of resistance.
