- Support: 1.1185, 1.0970, 1.0796
- Resistance:1.1318, 1.1533, 1.1659
The Euro is digesting losses after moving sharply lower to threaten the January swing low against the US Dollar. Near-term support is at 1.1185, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a sustained break below that exposing the 38.2% level at 1.0970. Alternatively, a turn above the 1.1276-1318 area (January 30 close, 14.6% Fib expansion) opens the door for a challenge of the February 3 high at 1.1533.
Prices are too close to support to justify entering short in line with our long-term outlook from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
