Euro Technical Price Outlook: EUR/USD Near-term Breakout Imminent
Euro has rallied more than 2% against the US Dollar from the yearly lows registered last week with the advance now consolidating just below down-trend resistance. These are the updated targets and invalidation levels that matter on the EUR/USD charts heading into the close of the week..
EURO PRICE CHART – EUR/USD DAILY
Technical Outlook: In my latest EUR/USD Price Outlook we highlighted this descending pitchfork formation extending off the yearly highs – a break below the median-line saw a test of the lower parallel last week with the subsequent rally now testing downtrend slope resistance at the 75% parallel. Price has been in consolidation for the past few days just below this threshold and we’re looking for the break for guidance. A topside breach targets the 61.8% retracement at 1.1265 backed by the upper parallel / 1.13 – a close above this threshold is needed to suggest a larger price reversal is underway targeting 1.1347/62. Initial support rests at 1.1186 backed by the median-line / 1.1107- Key support at the yearly low-day close at 1.1075 – weakness beyond this point would mark resumption of the broader downtrend.
