The Euro recoiled from resistance guiding it lower against the US Dollar since January 2018, as expected. Prices have now broken past key support in the 1.1216-34 area underpinning the choppy range capping losses since early November. That has exposed the next downside barrier in the 1.1110-32 zone.

Zooming out to the weekly chart, the picture looks still more ominous for the single currency. That reveals prices are on the verge of clearing a support shelf in play since mid-August. A successful breach faces relatively mild support thereafter until the 1.0829-1.0912 zone comes into play.
