The Euro bungled an attempted upside breakout against the US Dollar. The currency pushed through channel top resistance only to be rejected downward, establishing another in a sequence of lower highs defining the down move since late September 2018.

The first layer of significant support is now at 1.1176, the March 7 low. A breach below that confirmed on a daily closing basis exposes the next layer of support in the 1.1110-32 area. Invalidation of the overall bearish bias would need a break and close above trend line resistance at 1.1434.
