Euro vs US Dollar Technical Outlook

  • EUR/USD bulls pullback as risk-on sentiment weakens
  • Bearish signals on EUR vs USD price chart

EUR/USD- Weaker Bullish Momentum

On June 10, EUR/USD rallied to a three-month high at 1.1422. However, the price retreated as some bulls seemed to cut back therefore, the weekly candlestick closed in the red with a 0.3% loss.

This week, bulls eased up further amid lingering concerns about a new spike in Covid-19 cases in the US and the reports about new cases in China could offset hopes of a V-shape economic recovery. Additionally, border tensions between North and South Korea, and between India and China weakened risk-on sentiment in the markets.

EUR/USD DAILY PRICE CHART ( April 9– June 19, 2020) Zoomed IN

EURUSD Daily price chart 19-06-20 zoomed in

On June 11, EUR/USD declined to the current trading zone 1.1205 – 1.1370 signaling that bulls were losing momentum. Yesterday, the price tested the low end of the aforementioned zone yet closed above it, indicating that bulls were still in charge.

A close below the low end of the zone could end the bullish momentum and send EURUSD towards 1.1097. Any further close below this level may send the price even lower towards 1.0992.

On the flip-side, another close above the low end of the zone reflects that bullish bias is still intact and this may cause a rally towards the high end of the zone. Any further close above that level could extend the rally towards 1.1508.

See the daily chart (zoomed in) to know more about the key levels to monitor in both scenarios.
