EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Ready to Reverse Uptrend?

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Ready to Reverse Uptrend?

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

EUR/USD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: BEARISH

  • Euro breaks December support, threatening bounds of 3-month recovery
  • Confirmation of bearish resumption eyes initial support just under 1.09
  • Long-term trend dynamics hint extension toward 1.07 might be in scope

The Euro extended lower after a false breakout past the 1.12 figure, as expected. The currency has now broken upward-sloping support guiding gains against the US Dollar through December, hinting near-term pressure higher has been neutralized.

Making the case for broader bearish trend resumption probably requires further confirmation however. A daily close below the 1.1069-1.1104 congestion zone and a rising trend line connecting major swing lows since October – now at 1.1051 – seem like prerequisites on that score.

If this materializes, a move through the 1.0968-90 congestion area to challenge the swing low at 1.0879 may follow. A deeper selloff could be in the cards if long-term trend dynamics hold up however. The pace of the down move now in play implies an average drop of 4.6 percent, putting price just above 1.07.
