Euro Technical Outlook: EUR/USD Downtrend Paused. Will Reversal Follow?


Recommended Posts

EURO, EUR/USD, MAJORS-BASED EURO INDEX, IGCS – TECHNICAL OUTLOOK

  • Euro has been trying to fight back following persistent losses
  • Still, a majors-based index and EUR/USD remain pressured
  • Most retail traders are long the Euro, is this a bearish sign?
EUR/USD Mid-Session Technical Analysis for March 12, 2021

MAJORS-BASED EURO INDEX – DAILY CHART

Taking a look at a majors-based Euro index, which averages the single currency against the US Dollar, Japanese Yen, British Pound and Australian Dollar, EUR remains in a downtrend. Looking outside of recent losses, the Euro has been on the decline since December 2020, but support at 1.4610 – 1.4636 has been proving resilient on the daily chart below. Positive RSI divergence has been persisting, showing fading downside momentum.

This may open the door to a turn higher, and in such an outcome there are a few key technical highlights to watch. The first is a near-term falling trendline from December 2021. Clearing higher may open the door to extending gains. Then, a further test could be had at the 100-day Simple Moving Average as key resistance. Otherwise, downtrend resumption exposes the 2020 low.

EUR/USD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – DAILY CHART

How does this translate into EUR/USD? The pair remains in a downtrend since the beginning of 2021. Lately, the pair has been consolidating. This has resulted in what appears to be an Ascending Triangle chart formation. The direction of the breakout could precede the next trend. It should be noted that a falling trendline from May is fast approaching, which could pivot the pair back lower.

Downtrend resumption entails clearing the November low at 1.1195. Not much further below that sits the June 19, 2020 low. Keep a close eye on RSI, where positive divergence may emerge. Extending losses exposes the 61.8% Fibonacci extension at 1.1074 before facing the 78.6% level at 1.0989. On the flip side, taking out the ceiling of the triangle at 1.13387 may open the door to retesting 1.1525. The latter formerly held as support in October and November before breaking down. It could remerge as resistance.

IGCS OUTLOOK – MARKET POSITIONING

Taking a look at IG Client Sentiment, which can at times be a contrarian indicator, about 58% of retail traders are net-long EUR/USD. Since most traders are bullish, this suggests prices may continue falling. However, upside exposure increased by 16.75% compared to yesterday, while falling by 12.37% versus one week ago. With that in mind, the combination of overall and recent changes in positioning are offering a mixed trading bias.

    • Crypto trading is a bit complicated when it comes to understanding the dynamics in profit making. Some people are more inclined to technical analysis which of course has been the widely used trading tool but some are more inclined to fundamentals but sticking to fundamentals alone could be highly risky in my own opinion even though crypto is also financial instrument that often respond to news updates.  A blend of the two could provide a safety net for traders in minimizing losses compared to potential profit. The above case scenario is largely attributed to perp futures trading and other derivatives. TA and FA could also be very useful for spot trading but I feel timely listing of projects could largely determine one's profit from investing in a project. These may not be for all projects cos some are **** coins. This could be a personal perspective but I have noticed listing speed is also another important factor to consider along with project fundamentals when trading and if we are to include listing speed as a factor for choosing trade then it will affect our choice of trading platform cos some are more inclined to top cap projects while others are more inclined low cap gems.   My experience with ORDI has proven this trading skill rewarding. ORDI was first listed on Bitget before other exchange joined the listing party after it saw rapid adoption reflecting in it significant MCap growth. This chart should give us a glimpse of my experience with this strategy.
    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
    • A significant turning point in the #PORTALxBitget collaboration is the listing of $PORTAL on Bitget through the Candybomb event, which opens up benefits and synergistic prospects like 1. Diversified Trading choices: Users now have access to a wide range of trading choices thanks to $PORTAL's listing on the exchange, including cutting-edge leveraged trading capabilities and spot trading. This gives customers the freedom to interact with $PORTAL in a way that suits their preferred level of risk and trading techniques. 2. Community Synergy: By uniting the exchange users and the pre-existing $PORTAL community, the Candybomb event stimulates community engagement. Through this synergy, a positive environment surrounding #PORTALxBitget may be developed, encouraging cooperation, information exchange, and sustained interest in the project. Could this recent collab stimulate the  stage for a fruitful and mutually beneficial relationship between #PORTAL and exchange.
