Euro Dollar Outlook: EUR/USD Breaks Resistance Despite Rising Risks
EUR/USD Talking Points
- EUR/USD tests psychological resistance
- EUR continues to eye developments in Russia Ukraine war
- USD weighed down by risk sentiment despite hawkish Fed
Both Europe and the United States currently remain under pressure as the war between Russia and the Ukraine remains at the center of risk sentiment.
Although the conflict between the two Eastern European countries remains unresolved, the global implications that follow may continue to weigh on EUR/USD, driving prices below the key psychological level of 1.1200 which remains as critical resistance for the intermediary move.
EUR/USD Technical Analysis
After failing to break below the 1.080 handle, price action has continued to test the 1.1000 which currently remains as critical resistance. With the major currency pair now traing below this level, the MACD remains in negative territory, a potential indication that the index may be vulnerable to further declines.
