EUR/USD popping up for air ahead of further losses?

By FXstreet.com | August 22, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - EUR/USD is trading at 1.3245, down -0.27% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.3298 and low at 1.3221.



EUR/USD is up a tad on the release of Draghi’s speech. However, there wasn’t a great deal in his comments although something to take note from was that the expected diverging policy paths in US and euro zone should sustain exchange rate trend. Jacqui Douglas, Senior Global Strategist at TD Securities explained that they do like EUR/USD lower from a medium-term perspective, and she see’s downside risks to the IFO data on Monday, which will likely help to reinforce worries about Eurozone growth. So we would look at any bounce higher as a good opportunity to sell EUR for those who missed today’s initial leg lower, before what are likely to be new 2014 lows for the currency, with a break below 1.3220/30 triggering the next leg down to 1.30.



EUR/USD support and resistance levels



Support levels: 1.3210 and 1.3170.



Resistance levels: 1.3255, 1.3280, 1.3310 1.3340 and 1.3385.
