Euro Holds Monthly Support But Deeper Losses Likely Ahead

Euro Holds Monthly Support But Deeper Losses Likely Ahead

TECHNICAL FORECAST FOR THE EURO: BEARISH

  • Euro finished August narrowly avoiding monthly support break
  • Shorter-term chart setup argues for renewed downside pressure
  • Added further to short EUR/USD trade initiated near 1.24 mark

The Euro narrowly avoided a break below monthly support near the 1.15 figure. Still, the decade-long down trend against the US Dollar remains very much intact as September gets underway. What’s more, nearer-term positioning suggests it may be just a matter of time before a breach opens the door for deeper losses.

Euro vs US Dollar Chart - Monthly

The daily chart shows prices recoiling from resistance capping the upside since early June, paving the way for another challenge of support in the 1.1530-54 area. A daily close below that puts the August swing low back in the crosshairs.

Zooming in to the four-hour chart offers further confirmation and a greater sense of urgency as prices pierce below counter-trend support guiding the upswing from August lows and breach a secondary barrier marked by former resistance. That seems to set the stage for another challenge of the 1.15 threshold.

With this in mind, additional short EUR/USD exposure was added to the trade initially triggered at 1.2407 and subsequently scaled up near 1.19. The overall cost basis is now at 1.2153. A stop-loss will be activated on a discretionary basis.
