EUR/USD Analysis

The strong downwards trend has continued. The USD is very strong and EUR is very weak and that has obviously resulted in this pair falling sharply.

Yesterday was a public holiday in the U.K. so was fairly quiet. It is notable that the support at 1.3229 did hold when it was touched on Friday, and not surprising that the banks managed their usual trick of getting the price to gap down below such support over the weekend. At the time of writing, the gap has not yet been filled, but is this is quite likely to happen today.

It currently looks like the best trade will be waiting at a pullback to around the 1.3300 – 1.3325 area, from which the price is quite likely to fall again.

My colleague Christopher Lewis is thinking the same way. However I see the first potential support a little earlier than he does, at 1.3155.

EURUSD 82614

There are no high-impact data releases due today concerning the EUR. Regarding the USD, at 1:30pm London time there will be a release of Core Durable Goods data, followed by CB Consumer Confidence at 3pm, both of which are likely to affect the USD. This pair is likely to be more active during the New York session.
