Euro Technical Price Outlook: EUR/USD Near-term Trade Levels

  • Euro updated technical trade levels – Daily & Intraday Charts
  • EUR/USD carves October opening-range - broader bearish invalidation 1.1859
  • Risk for deeper correction sub-1.1808 – key support 1.1695

Euro is attempting to snap a two-week winning streak against the US Dollar with EUR/USD carving a well-defined monthly opening-range just below down-trend resistance. The immediate focus is on a break of the weekly price range for guidance with the broader risk tilted to the downside while below the 1.18-handle. These are the updated targets and invalidation levels that matter on the EUR/USD technical price charts. Review my latest Strategy Webinar for an in-depth breakdown of this Euro setup and more.

Euro Price Chart – EUR/USD Daily

Euro Price Chart - EUR/USD Daily - Euro vs US Dollar Trade Outlook - Technical Forecast

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; EUR/USD on Tradingview

Technical Outlook: In our last Euro Technical Price Outlook we noted that EUR/USD had, “rebounded off downtrend support and the focus is on this near-term recovery,” with the broader risk lower sub-1.1859. Price registered a high at 1.1831 last week before faltering with the monthly opening-range taking shape just above the 1.17-handle.

Key resistance / bearish invalidation remains steady at 1.1853/59– a region defined by the 100% extension of the late-September advance and the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the September range. A breach / close above this threshold would be needed to mark resumption of the broader uptrend towards 1.1961. A break of the monthly range lows at 1.17 would risk a larger correction with such a scenario exposing the lower parallels / October 2018 highs / September low-day close at 1.1621/27 – look for a larger price reaction there IF reached.

Notes: A closer look at Euro price action sees EUR/USD within a set of ascending parallels (red) with an embedded descending pitchfork extending off the monthly highs guiding the recent pullback. The immediate focus is on a break of the 1.1719-1.1789 range for guidance with the near-term risk weighted to the downside while below weekly open resistance at 1.1808. Ultimately, a break below confluence support at 1.1695-1.1700 is needed to keep the short-bias viable towards 1.1659 and 1.1621.

Bottom line: Euro is testing monthly open support today with the October opening-range now set. From a trading standpoint, the risk remains for a deeper setback while below the weekly open – be on the lookout for topside exhaustion ahead of 1.18 IF price is heading lower with a break below 1.1695 needed to fuel a deeper correction. Ultimately a deeper price correction may offer more favorable opportunities closer to trend support with breach above the 1.1859 needed to mark resumption of the broader uptrend.

Yet traders are less net-short than yesterday and compared with last week.
