EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro May Fall Below 1.07 vs US Dollar

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro May Fall Below 1.07 vs US Dollar

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

EUR/USD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: BEARISH

  • Euro rejected at chart resistance, eyeing a move to test October low
  • November top break needed to neutralize near-term selling pressure
  • Longer-term position hints move probing below 1.07 may be afoot

The Euro recoiled from resistance in the 1.1069-80 price inflection area, pushing prices back toward monthly lows near support in the 1.0968-90 zone. A daily close below that is likely to set the stage for a test of the October 1 swing bottom at 1.0879.

Alternatively, a snapback upward that secures a foothold above 1.1080 – against on a closing basis – would probably open the door to challenge the 1.1176-83 could top anew. Follow-through higher beyond that might neutralize near-term selling pressure and set the stage for a longer-lasting recovery.

For the time being however, broader positioning still seems to telegraph a bearish bias. The pair’s breach below rising counter-trend support at the beginning of November appeared to suggest that a correction had run its course and the preceding downward trajectory was prepared to be reasserted.

Zooming out to the weekly chart, recent price action appears to put EUR/USD well within the downtrend carved out since mid-2018. If prior patterns are indicative, trend averages suggest the latest rejection at resistance portends a downswing on the order of 4.5 percent. That would put the pair below 1.07.
