EUR/USD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: EURO POISED FOR NEW LEG LOWER

The last time I posted commentary on the Euro I was discussing its potential to continue to extend the trend lower off the May high. Nothing has happened over the past week or so to change this outlook, if anything the bias is growing stronger with each day that EUR/USD fails to reverse higher.

The low to watch at the bottom of the recent congestion pattern is 11524, a break below should kick off a new leg lower that will have an important level quickly in focus. The March 2020 spike-high is a meaningful level to watch for a reaction at. It resides at 11495.

A bounce could develop, but is anticipated to be transient in nature as the trend off the May high looks set to persist. Beyond that point the next level to watch is 11423, a swing-high created during the spring of 2020, and in confluence with that level could be the underside trend-line running lower from June.

The June 2020 high and June to current trend-line may not be in confluence if the slide develops slowly. In any event, neither of these levels are major types of support, but should be respected should we see the market react upon testing.

To turn the picture bullish EUR/USD has its work cut out for it. A rally above the downtrend line from May and 11700 is needed to snap the bearish sequence. Even then we would need to see such rally hold up on a pullback without it turning into an outright decline.

For now, continuing to run with a fairly aggressive bearish bias until there is evidence to do otherwise.

    • Gold The uptrend has been given new life with yesterday’s bounce, which has seen the price push to $1840 for the first time in a month. This run of higher highs and higher lows continues to support a more bullish view, putting the November highs near $1860 into view. Tuesday’s low at $1806 would need to be breached to the downside to provide a short-term negative outlook, as this would end the run of higher lows witnessed over the past seven weeks.

Nonetheless the overall bullish view remains in place, and the 2011 highs above $100 per barrel are now in sight. Near-term support comes into play around $84, the October and November highs, and then below this in the region around $79. Source: ProRealTime
    • Note: There will be a maximum of 3 time units to the downside from the high before the next rally.
