EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Rebound Losing Steam?

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Rebound Losing Steam?

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC


  • Euro retraces, testing back above October support-turned-resistance
  • Retail trader sentiment studies suggesting scope for further recovery
  • Rising Wedge setup, RSI divergence warn upside momentum fading

The Euro has rebounded against the US Dollar after landing at a three-year low, as expected. The four-hour chart now shows EUR/USD has reclaimed a tentative foothold above support-turned-resistance marked by the October 2019 swing bottom (confirmation on a daily closing basis is absent for now).

If the move continues to find follow-through prices may move to revisit another recently broken multi-month support range in the 1.0989-94 area. This is reinforced by falling-trend line resistance guiding downward progress since the beginning of the year.

That the recovery is tracing out a typically-bearish Rising Wedge pattern coupled with negative RSI divergence warns that scope for gains might be limited and downtrend resumption not far behind. Confirming as much would need a break of the pattern’s lower boundary, now at 1.0855.
