EUR/USD Analysis

I did forecast yesterday morning that we would move down, as implied by the price action, and that is in fact what happened. We broke below the support at 1.3575 pretty solidly and yesterday’s daily candle is a strong bearish engulfing candle that reversed the real bodies of the previous two daily candles.

It seems likely that we will continue to move down at least until we hit the lower, more important bullish trend line at around 1.3520. If we get below that, there has been plenty of support before close to 1.3500, so it may be hard to move below this area. A touch of the support level at 1.3486 is unlikely but should be a good long touch trade.

EUR/USD Signal

There are no high-impact data releases due today concerning the EUR, although there are concerning the USD which might well have some impact upon this pair. At 1:30pm London time London time there will be a release of US PPI data followed later by the Chair of the Federal Reserve testifying at 3pm.
