EUR/USD Analysis

Following a fairly brief rally during the second half of June during which this pair hit a high of 1.3700, there has been a moderate downwards trend. Early yesterday we made a low which has not been seen since November 2013 at 1.3332. This was close to a flipping support/resistance level at around 1.3325 which produced both weekly highs and lows last year, and the price has risen from there with some momentum, producing a nice bullish semi-pin candle on the daily chart yesterday. This suggests that we are ready now for a rally although it might be brief. The question is whether this will be supported by the data that is due out today around the start of the New York session. If there is nothing to dampen the EUR and the USD data is weak, the price should rise during today’s New York session, but is likely to be quiet until about Noon London time.

There is a flipped resistance level at 1.3442 which would be the likely place for an upwards move to stall, at least initially.

EURUSD 8714
