Looking at the daily chart, we noticed that on Tuesday EUR/USD rebounded from the high end of current trading zone 1.0822- 1.0992. in the following day, the price declined then closed below the 50-day average generating a bearish signal.
Thus, a close below the low end of the low end of the zone could send EURUSD towards 1.0719. Further close below that level may encourage bears to press towards 1.0498. In that scenario, the daily and weekly support levels underlined on the chart should be kept in focus.
On the flip side, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone could reverse the market’s direction towards the high end of the zone the high end of the zone.

From the four-hour chart, we noticed that yesterday EUR/USD broke below the uptrend line originated from the March 20 low at 1.0637 generating a bearish signal. Today, the price tested the uptrend line yet, failed to overtake it and cancel that signal.

Although, the weekly support level underscored on the chart should be watched closely.
