Planned U.S. and European sanctions on Russia have weighed negatively on the Euro this morning, highlighting the currencies high correlation to the geopolitical situation in Ukraine. Once details around the sanctions are revealed, the Euro could come under additional pressure.

The economic calendar is mild today with not much from the Euro zone, leaving U.S. ISM Non-Manufacturing (Services) PMI data and Fed speeches the focus for the day.

EUR/USD DAILY CHART

EURUSD daily chart

Chart prepared by Warren Venketas, IG

Daily EUR/USD price action has slipped below the psychological 1.1000 support level and now seeks to test the developing bear flag chart pattern (blue). Despite the Euro’s recent rise, bearish momentum remains with prices trading firmly below all three EMA’s. A candle close below flag support could open up further downside for the pair, possibly breaking below the long-term symmetrical triangle support trendline (black).

Resistance levels:

  • 1.1138
  • 50-day EMA (blue)
  • 20-day EMA (purple)
  • 1.1000

Support levels:

  • Flag support (blue)
  • Triangle support (black)
  • 1.0806
