Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

EUR/USD has settled into a fairly tight range to start the week as it awaits some important releases in a few days. Last week’s double failure at the 50-day moving average near 1.1100 keeps the exchange rate in a fairly clear negative technical position ahead of this event risk. The 1.0800 area remains a critical pivot zone as a close below there would confirm a resumption of the broader downtrend and set into motion a more important decline. However, the contraction in range over the past few months does make us wonder if the market is setting up a bear trap. The potential inverse head and shoulders pattern on the daily (price action since July) doesn’t help things either, but only a move through 1.1130 would start to turn things more clearly positive for the euro.
