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.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
