EUR/USD Technical Analysis – Initial Support Met Sub-1.38

EUR/USD Technical Analysis – Initial Support Met Sub-1.38

Talking Points:

  • EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Support: 1.3835 (23.6% Fib exp.), 1.3793 (38.2% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 1.3905 (Apr 11 high)

The Euro has turned lower anew against the US Dollar having found resistance just above the 1.39 figure. Prices are testing support at 1.3793, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that targeting the 50% level at 1.3758. Near-term resistance is at 1.3905, the April 11 swing high.

We continue to see the long-term fundamental outlook as favoring Euro weakness against the greenback. Risk/reward considerations ague against entering short with prices sitting squarely at near-term support however. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a more attractive selling opportunity to present itself.
