EUR/USD Weekly Forecast: 2020 Opening Range Points to Further Losses

EUR/USD Weekly Forecast: 2020 Opening Range Points to Further Losses

David Song, Strategist

Euro Talking Points

EUR/USD struggles to hold its ground during the first full week of January, and the opening range for 2020 raises the scope for a further decline in the exchange rate in light of the failed attempt to test the August high (1.1250).

Technical Forecast for Euro: Bearish

EUR/USD pulls back from the December high (1.1239) on the back of US Dollar strength, and the exchange rate may extend the decline from the start of the month as the bullish momentum abates.

The monthly opening range has been a key dynamic for EUR/USD in the fourth quarter of 2019 as the exchange rate carved a major low on October 1, with monthly high for November occurring during the first full week of the month, while the low for December materialized on the first day of the month.

With that said, the 2020 opening range for EUR/USD raises the scope for a further decline in the exchange rate as the correction from the 2019 low (1.0879) fails to produce a run at the August high (1.1250).

At the same time, recent developments in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) suggest the bullish momentum will continue to abate as the oscillator snaps the upward trend from December after failing to push into overbought territory.

In turn, EUR/USD has slipped back below the 200-Day SMA (1.1139) after trading above the indicator for the first time since June, and negative slope in the moving average casts a bearish outlook for the exchange rate as it continues to track the downward trend carried over from 2018.

As a result, the technical outlook foreshadows a more bearish fate for EUR/USD, and the bullish momentum from the end of 2019 may continue abate as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) reverses course after failing to push above 70.

The opening range for 2020 casts a bearish outlook for EUR/USD as the exchange rate pulls back from the December high (1.1239), and the correction from the 2019 low (1.0879) may continue to unravel amid the failed attempt to test the August high (1.1250).

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) highlight a similar dynamic as the oscillator snaps the bullish formation carried over from the previous month after failing to push into overbought territory.

Need a break/close below the 1.1100 (78.6% expansion) handle to open up the 1.1040 (61.8% expansion), with the next area of interest coming in around 1.0950 (100% expansion) to 1.0980 (78.6% retracement).
