EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Quickly Melting to the 2016 Low

The EUR/USD is about to trade at the worst levels since 2016, the 10342 level is quickly approaching. It’s a massive level, obviously, given it is the bottom from the last significant USD cycle. Will we see a reprieve from that level, or are dollar forces too strong?

At the moment it looks like the EUR/USD could blow right through support, but that is usually the case in a market environment such as this. However, we could see some volatile price action around that low that suggests a low may form. Of lesser importance is a lower channel line that is in near confluence with the 2016 low, it could become a factor.

It’s not expected to be a major low at this juncture, although it could, but at the least a tradeable low that will see the euro recover in the days/weeks ahead. Trying to play it from the long-side could initially be difficult. The thinking on this end, if looking to play a bounce to take a wait-and-see approach.

Let the EUR/USD show it wants to hold first by putting in a bounce, and then perhaps looking to enter on a retracement. But for now it is just a scenario to watch. Price could melt on through, in which case the parity drumbeat will likely grow very loud.

For now, there is a little room for the EUR/USD to drop before 10342 comes into play, at which time we will pay close attention to how the market responds. Existing shorts may want to tighten up trailing stops while would-be longs may want to take the above outlined approach and be patient.

    • As the cryptocurrency space evolves, Bitget keeps bringing up worthwhile initiatives to make crypto trading interesting and easy for its users as well as helping them maximise profit.  Gleaning from the likes of Candybomb to PoolX and the likes, the CEX has been seen to steadily provide these services. The PRE MARKET trade seems to be the newest product on the block right now. It is an over the counter trading platform that specialises in providing a pre-traded marketplace for new coins before official listing.  Simply put, it is a p2p framework of some sort that facilitates trading between buyers and sellers enabling them to acquire coins at optimal price thus enhancing advance liquidity and complete delivery at a mutually agreed upon time.  The interesting thing about the Pre Market is that; it allows the advocates or supporters of newly launched projects to trade through a contract before the token goes mainstream or before being airdropped.  This framework is very good for projects that have very high speculation, speculative traders should check out this product.  Good thing is the Pre trade is already live, you can leverage on it to purchase $MERL before its official listing, you could get to earn massive ROI. Here's the link; https://www.bitget.com/pre-market/MERLUSDT
    • Atomic Wallet is experiencing issues with their staking and rewards, so I would like to transfer my ATOMs to another crypto wallet. I contacted Atomic Wallet Support and they recommended Cosmostation Wallet and gave me instructions on how to do this. I followed the links they sent me, which required me to fill in my seed phrase. My ATOMs transferred to Cosmostation Wallet but were immediately transferred out. I never made that transaction. I contacted Cosmostation Wallet Support and asked them what happened. They informed me that I must have been talking to a scammer posing as support from Atomic Wallet. I contacted Atomic Wallet and they said I wasn't talking to a scammer and those links are legit. I lost my funds because my PC must be infected. Atomic Wallet wouldn't outright scam me would they?  
    • With the recent surge in "Cat Coins," a wave of playfulness and intrigue is sweeping the crypto community. KHAI, a meme token built on the Solana blockchain, is at the forefront of this movement. Fueled by a bullish community sentiment, KHAI has experienced a staggering 15.27% price increase in the past 24 hours, pushing its market cap to a noteworthy 24.4 million dollars. This impressive growth comes on top of a remarkable 94.3% price jump over the past week, significantly outperforming both the global market and other Solana-based cryptocurrencies. Could KHAI be the next big memecoin to reach unprecedented heights? Its recent listing on the Bitget exchange, accompanied by a giveaway event, certainly adds fuel to the fire. However, the question remains: will this newfound attention propel KHAI to even greater heights, or will it succumb to the volatility often associated with memecoins? Only time will tell.
