EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Ready for Down Trend Resumption?

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Ready for Down Trend Resumption?

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

EUR/USD Technical Strategy: SHORT AT 1.2407

  • Euro capped at channel ceiling, menacing counter-trend line
  • Break lower opens the door for a test of support below 1.22
  • Bearish bias invalidation point established above 1.24 mark

See our free guide to learn how you can build confidence in your EUR/USD trading strategy!

The Euro is testing key near-term support against the US Dollar, with a break opening the door for resumption of a two-month down trend. Price action has been defined by a choppy falling channel since a double top was carved out below the 1.26 figure in late January to mid-February.

A daily close below trend line support guiding the latest upswing – now at 1.2288 – clears the way for another challenge of the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.2173. Alternatively, a push above range resistance at 1.2446 would also breach the channel top and expose the 1.2537-8 area (38.2% Fib retracement, double top).

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Ready for Down Trend Resumption?

The second half of a short EUR/USD trade triggered at 1.2407 remains in play after partial profit was booked at the position’s first objective, looking to take advantage of downward trend resumption. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close above 1.2446. Scale-in opportunities will be evaluated as they appear.
