Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Early Downside Resumption in EUR/USD?

EUR/USD started its latest recovery right around the key Pi cycle turn window that we highlighted at the end of last month (Read HERE). After rallying a little over 4 big figures the pair ran into stiff resistance last week at the 20-day moving average. Ideally the upside correction in the euro would last another week or so to better fit some of our short-term cyclical calculations, but a hallmark of the decline in the euro since May has been quick downside resumptions. Given the repeated failures at the 20-day moving average last week and the aggressive decline that followed US employment data we can’t help but wonder if the downtrend is about to reassert itself “ahead of schedule” again? What makes this time a little different and a little more complicated is the proximity of two key long term retracement levels as 1.1240 marks the 50% retracement of the 1985 Plaza Accord low and the 2008 high (using synthetic rates) while 1.1210 marks the 61.8% retracement of the all-time traded low recorded in 2000 and the 2008 all-time high. Yes we recognize this support zone was taken already taken out last month, but when dealing with long-term retracements we believe in giving a decent amount of leeway. As such our fear is that if a more serious counter-trend recovery is going to materialize in EUR/USD then it is most likely to occur somewhere around these levels. In order to confirm a downside resumption and alleviate some of our paranoia we would like to see 1.1210 materially breached on a daily closing basis.
