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

  • Euro updated technical trade levels – Daily & Intraday Charts
  • EUR/USD plunge rebounds off near-term downtrend support– recovery vulnerable
  • Resistance 1.1966, 1.2007 - Support at 1.1855, 1.1824 critical

Euro rallied more 0.5% against the US Dollar since the start of the week EUR/USD rebounding just ahead of multi-month trend support. Our focus is on possible exhaustion on this recovery with near-term risk weighted to the downside while below the big figure. These are the updated targets and invalidation levels that matter on the EUR/USD technical price charts heading into the close of the week. Review my latest Strategy Webinar for an in-depth breakdown of this Euro technical setup and more.

Technical Outlook: In last month’s Euro Price Outlook we noted that, “The Euro rally has extended into yearly open resistance and the advance may be vulnerable near-term while below 1.2239/61.” EUR/USD registered a high at 1.2266 before turning lower in to the June open with price plummeting more than 3.3% off the monthly high. The decline turned just ahead of multi-month uptrend support this week with the rebound stalling yesterday near the August high at 1.1966. Is this just a relief rally or more of a reversal of trendline support?

A topside breach would risk a stretch towards the 2018 yearly open / 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the May decline at 1.2005/07 backed by the 100-day moving average at 1.2030 – both levels of interest for possible topside exhaustion IF reached. Support rests with the lower parallel (blue) with a break / close below 1.1824/35 needed to suggest a larger trend reversal may be underway.

Notes: A closer look at Euro price action shows EUR/USD trading within a descending pitchfork formation extending off the May / June highs with this week’s rebound coming off downtrend support. The recovery may be trading within a near-term bearish flag formation – watch for the break. Initial support eyed at 1.1919 backed by the weekly open at 1.1854 and key support at 1.1824/35.
