EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Sinks to Key Support - Now What?

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Sinks to Key Support - Now What?

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

EUR/USD Technical Strategy: NET SHORT AT 1.2276

  • Euro drops to six-month low, challenging a key chart barrier
  • Breach of outer support layer clears a path to test below 1.14
  • Opportunities sought to scale up short EUR/USD trade further

See our quarterly Euro forecast to learn what will drive prices through mid-year!

The Euro is poised to challenge critical chart support having dropped to the lowest level in six months against the US Dollar. The decade-long down trend has resumed with gusto as expected, with May on pace to deliver the steepest monthly decline since November 2015.

Euro vs US Dollar - monthly chart

Sellers are now poised to challenge the 1.1442-1.16 area, a former resistance threshold marking the top of the range containing prices from early March 2015 through mid-July 2017 that has now been recast as support. Breaching this barrier would open the door for the next leg of the long-term down move.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Sinks to Key Support - Now What?

Turning to the daily chart, a push below 1.1442 sees the next support layer in the 1.1279-1.1347 region. Alternatively, a close back above support-turned-resistance in the 1.1713-32 zone – a barrier reinforced by a falling trend line set from mid-April – exposes the inflection point at 1.1827 once again.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Sinks to Key Support - Now What?

The cost basis on running short EUR/USD exposure is at 1.2276 after adding to the trade above the 1.19 figure having initiated the position at 1.2407. Opportunities to scale up further will be sought to the extent that they are acceptable from a risk/reward perspective. A stop-loss will be triggered on a discretionary basis.
