EUR/USD four Hour Price CHART (SEp 27 – DEC 2, 2019)
From the four-hour chart, we notice on Friday EURUSD rebounded from the uptrend line, reflecting that majority of sellers were still holding their positions.
Hence, a break below 1.0963 may convince more sellers to join the market and press towards the low end of current trading zone, discussed above on the daily chart. Yet, the weekly support level marked on the chart should be kept in focus. On the other hand, a break above 1.1073 could lead EURUSD to correct higher towards 1.1130. In that scenario, the weekly resistance level underscored on the chart needs to be considered.
