David Rodriguez, Head of Product

- The Euro is breaking major trendline support, technical forecasts favor further weakness

- A substantial shift in retail forex trader sentiment suggests the EURUSD likely topped

- Build in FX Volatility prices favors continued Dollar strength

The Euro is breaking to fresh multi-month lows versus the US Dollar, and we're watching these three key factors that favor a larger EURUSD downtrend.

The first is simple: price is breaking to fresh multi-month lows, and a move below major trendline support suggests the multi-month uptrend may be coming to an end.

Our Senior Strategist writes that the Euro looks at risk as it breaks said trendline, and indeed a close below $1.3540 would cement the case for a larger decline.

The second key factor we’re watching is retail forex trader sentiment; yesterday we highlighted a major shift that warned of continued EURUSD weakness.

Finally, a sharp build in forex volatility prices warns that many traders are betting on and/or hedging against major currency moves. Indeed, a fairly strong correlation between our DailyFX Volatility Indices and the Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index supports the case for USD strength.
