EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Recovery Faces Resistance at 1.1200

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Recovery Faces Resistance at 1.1200

Oded Shimoni, Junior Currency Analyst

Talking Points:

- EUR/USD found support around the 1.0950 level

- Pair might need to see a clear break above resistance at 1.1200 for further upside conviction

- 1.1100 could be in focus on a move lower

The EUR/USD is trading higher after Friday’s US GDP report, and the pair appears to be trading at a key resistance area.

The pair has seen a bounce higher last week following a decline to the 1.0950 level, and is currently trading below a potential resistance zone around the 1.12 handle between 1.1220 and 1.1186.

A clean break above that area might put focus on the 1.13 figure for possible resistance, before things get interesting around the range swing highs; initially at 1.1400-1.1430, followed by the 1.15 handle, 1.16175 and the August 2015 high at the 1.1714 level.

A hold below 1.1186 might put focus initially on the 1.11 handle for possible support, followed by the 1.10 figure and what seems like a key support zone below the 1.0950 level.

Meanwhile, the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) is showing that about 35.6% of traders are long the EUR/USD at the time of writing, marking the largest short side positioning since May highs. The SSI is mainly used as a contrarian indicator, but range bound trading conditions are correlated with retail traders more successful periods suggesting potential weakness ahead (See Traits of successful traders”).
