TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

EUR/USD DAILY CHART

image2.png

Chart prepared by Warren Venketas, IG

From a price action standpoint, the daily EUR/USD chart shows bulls pushing above the June 2022 swing high which has yet to be resolutely breached. Considering the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is coming off overbought levels, I maintain a potential grind lower as we close off 2022.

Resistance levels:

  • 1.0800
  • 1.0774
  • 1.0700

Support levels:

  • 1.0615
  • 1.0500

BULLISH IG CLIENT SENTIMENT

IGCS shows retail traders are currently SHORT on EUR/USD, with 63% of traders currently holding short positions (as of this writing). At DailyFX we typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment resulting in a short-term upside bias.
