EUR/USD Technical Analysis

Currently EUR/USD continues to trade within the rising channel with the formation of a bearish engulfing candle providing a possibility that short-term selling pressure may break the slight uptrend which has prevailed since mid-Jan. Meanwhile, the 50 and 100 period Moving Average continue to encapsulate price action, while trading in an area of confluency which has historically provided support and resistance for the major currency pair.

From a longer-term perspective, price action on the weekly chart continues to remain faithful to the key Fibonacci retracement levels of major historical moves while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) remains within range but is likely to enter into oversold territory in the near future should US Dollar weakness buoy further Euro strength.

Should bulls take charge once again, a break above the key psychological level of 1.2200 could result in bullish continuation with the potential for tests towards the January highs.

However, a break below current support could see bears testing the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the historical move, at 1.2100.
