- EUR/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Euro Finds Support Below 1.12 Figure, Attempts to Resume Recovery
- Waiting for Signs of Long-Term Down Trend Resumption to Get Short
The Euro is attempting to resume the upside correction launched a month ago against the US Dollar having found support above the 1.11 figure. Prices hit seven-month highs last week but failed to maintain momentum above the 1.17 mark. Still, the series of higher highs and lows carved out from the August 5 low remains intact.
Near-term resistance is now at 1.1368, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 1.1501. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 14.6% Fib at 1.1287 initially clears the way for a test of the August 28 low at 1.1155.
The long-term EURUSD trend remains bearish. That paints the current upswing as well as the larger advance from lows in mid-March as ultimately corrective. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines until positioning produces actionable confirmation of down trend resumption.
