Euro Testing Make-or-Break Support

We’ve been discussing a key support zone at the 1.13-handle in EUR/USD for the past few months and price is testing this critical zone at the January lows to start the week. The focus is on a reaction off this zone with the immediate short-bias at risk while above. In this webinar we review updated technical setups on DXY, EUR/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CAD, Gold, Crude Oil (WTI), USD/CHF, EUR/AUD, GBP/AUD, and AUD/USD.

Key Levels in Focus

DXY – Rally testing January highs at 96.96 – subsequent resistance at 97.20 and the December high-day close at 97.42 (both levels of interest for exhaustion IF reached). Interim support 96.45 with bullish invalidation at 96.26.

EUR/USD – Focus is on a critical support zone at 1.1290-1.13. Looking for a definitive reaction off this region with a break / close below needed to keep the short-bias viable. Near-term bearish invalidation at 1.1375. A break lower targets 1.1233.

Gold – Rally remains at risk near-term sub-1321. Interim support 1302 backed by 1295. Topside breach targets 1342 & the 2018 HDC at 1348.

Crude Oil – Near-term focus is lower sub-53 with bearish invalidation at 53.80. Initial support targets at 51.40 and 50.61.
