EUR/USD outlook turning bearish

Today’s deep pullback might prompt investors to re-assess the current stance of the pair, in light of the ongoing Syria-induced risk aversion and the likeliness of the Fed announcing its QE tapering in the upcoming meeting, both events being USD-supportive. Camilla Sutton, Chief Strategist at Scotiabank, argues that the short-term technical are now bearish, adding, “the MACD and DMI firmly in sell territory, the RSI having dropped below 50 and yesterday’s violent spot downside move all suggesting that the bears are in control of EUR. We expect further near-term downside, expecting a test down to the 100-day MA at 1.3134”.
