EUR/USD Targets Key Support Confluence at Monthly Open

Euro turned lower last week and we’re looking for possible price exhaustion on a move towards a key support zone at 1.1312/20- this region is defined by 100% extension of the recent decline, the 61.8% retracement of the monthly advance and the November open. Initial resistance stands at 1.1383 with a breach above 1.1413/17 needed to validate a near-term reversal. In this webinar we review updated technical setups on DXY, EUR/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD, USD/CAD, Gold, Crude Oil (WTI), USD/JPY, NZD/JPY and AUD/JPY.
