EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Hopes for Lifeline at 3-Year Low

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro Hopes for Lifeline at 3-Year Low

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC


  • Euro sinks through 3-year support, probing below 1.07 figure
  • Bounce above 1.10 needed to neutralize near-term bearish bias
  • Trader sentiment studies bolster the case for Euro weakness

The Euro swiftly banished hopes for a rebound that briefly flashing on the daily chart mid-week, accelerating downward against the US Dollar to puncture three-year support in the 1.0783-1.0880 area. That put prices squarely atop the 78.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.0652. Breaking below this barrier on a daily closing basis may open the way for a challenge of the 100% Fib at 1.0422.

Turning to the 4-hour chart offers a glimpse of what might happen were EUR/USD to attempt recovery. Resistance begins in the 1.0777-84 zone, followed by a minor inflection point at 1.0848. A break of downward-sloping trend resistance is probably a prerequisite for neutralizing immediate selling pressure however. Doing that would require prices to extend north of the 1.10 figure.
