Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Downside Break in the Euro Before Payrolls?

EUR/USD has turned nicely lower from the cyclical turn window we highlighted last month (Read HERE). Late last week the single currency did record a new low close for the year which is a strong sign that the broader downtrend is indeed starting to reassert itself. Attention now is obviously on the year’s absolute low just under 1.1100. Gann often said that the most important time for a market is when it tests old highs and lows so we should learn a lot about the exchange rate in upcoming sessions. An easy break of the 1.1100 area would confirm the action seen late last week and set the stage for another meaningful extension lower in the euro in the weeks ahead. Likewise a failure to easily crack 1.1100 would be an interesting change in behavior. However, we would really need to see strength back over 1.1300 to signal that any sort of reversal is actually taking shape.
