EURSEK Approaching 2-Year Rising Support Channel: Will it Break?

EURSEK Approaching 2-Year Rising Support Channel: Will it Break?

Dimitri Zabelin, Analyst

NORDIC FX, NOK, SEK WEEKLY OUTLOOK

  • USDSEK aiming towards key trading range after breaking through rising support
  • Underlying bullish bias likely to prevail once fundamental headwind start blowing
  • EURSEK appears to be flirting with the notion of retesting rising 2-year support

EURSEK TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

On a daily chart, EURSEK continues to trade below May’s descending resistance channel (red parallel channel). Traders will find themselves at an interesting point when the price ceiling and support at 10.4996 (yellow dotted line) converge. Sellers will likely wait for confirmation with a daily close below descending resistance and the price floor before committing more capital.

Zooming out to a weekly chart, however, shows an entirely different picture. EURSEK has been on a steady incline since August 2017 (red parallel channel). The last time the pair came close to testing the lower level of support was in December of 2018. Despite being on an uptrend, the pair is once again approaching the critical support zone. A break below it with follow-through may cause sellers to double down.

USDSEK TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

USDSEK has once again broken through 18-month rising support after briefly popping its head up again in early July (red parallel channel). The pair is now looking to potentially test a familiar congestive range between 9.2533-9.3110 (red dotted lines). Traders with short positions may wait to add exposure until after USDSEK has broken below the lower lip of the congestive range with follow through.

Despite the temporary deviation from the broad uptrend, the underlying bias suggests a bullish outlook. Fundamentals supportive of a stronger US Dollar will likely be a tailwind behind the pair’s likely continued ascendancy at least until year-end. A close above the upper lip of the support channel with follow through may prompt USDSEK traders to enter long positions if they are convinced the deviation is over.
