Euro Technical Analysis
The Euro has been struggling to find further upside momentum against some of its G10 counterparts. On the chart below is my majors-based Euro index. After breaking above the key 1.5344 – 1.5429 inflection range, prices accelerated higher before stopping short of the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level. Since then, EUR has largely remained range bound. A break above 1.5657 could open the door to uptrend resumption. Guiding my Euro index higher is rising support from late February.

EUR/USD Technical Outlook
EUR/USD has been in a consolidation setting with prices ranging between 1.1916 and 1.1696 for most of this month so far. Prices stalled after the emergence of a Doji candlestick, which is a sign of indecision. Downside confirmation has been somewhat lacking, but a close under the lower bound of the Euro’s consolidation could open the door to a reversal. However, rising support from May could maintain the dominant uptrend in the event of short term gains. A push above 1.1916 exposes the 126.60% Fibonacci extension at 1.2028.

EUR/AUD Technical Outlook
The Euro could be readying to push higher against the Australian Dollar after the short-term 20-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) crossed above the medium-term 50-day one. This is known as a Golden Cross which is a bullish signal. Key resistance sits above at 1.6590 which has its beginnings from the beginning of this year. A daily close above this price could open the door to testing a range of resistance between 1.6773 and 1.6893. Otherwise, a turn lower places the focus on 1.6034 – 1.6117.

EUR/CAD Technical Outlook
EUR/CAD has turned lower after stalling just under the March high at 1.5991. A daily close under 1.5588 would expose rising support from February which could reinstate the focus to the upside. Guiding the pair lower since late July has been short term falling resistance, pink line on the daily chart below. A push above this trend line could open the door for retesting the current 2020 peak. Otherwise, a descend through rising support exposes the 23.60% Fibonacci extension at 1.5461.
