EURUSD Technical Analysis
EURUSD Long-term Overview: Possible Bearish Trend
Monthly Resistance Levels: 1.21545, 1.25558
Monthly Support Levels: 1.14950, 1.10292, 1.08288
The bearish move for this month is still holding as the bears kept pressuring the 1.9198 level for a close below the zone to take the price to the previous resistance level of March 02, 2020 (1.14950) that has turned into support.
We expect the price to test the support zone of 1.14950 in the future and will likely attract the Bulls who may want to take over the market from the area should they have the momentum.
Weekly Chart Bullish
Weekly Resistance Level: 1.23497, 1.25000
Weekly Support Level: 1.19521, 1.17000
The EURUSD pair is going bearish since the price fails to close above the resistance zones of February and January 2021(1.23497). The bears have dominated the market, having seen a clear divergence pattern on the RSI indicator.
As the months unfold and sentiments shift towards a more robust U.S. economy, we will likely see the U.S. dollar getting stronger amid the second wave of COVID-19.
Daily Chart Projections: Extended Bearish Trend
Daily Resistance Level: 1.23496, 1.21896, 1.19886
Daily Support Level: 1.18358
After days of bullish accumulations at the 1.21561 levels, the bears were able to breakdown the support level with a strong bearish engulfing candle that push the EUR vs. US Dollar pair down to the support level of 1.18358.
The 1.19521 level was previously a support level before the price broke through it. Now we expect that zone to act as a resistance to cost for a bearish move down. However, should the bears fail to push down the price, we may see a bounce for an upward rally from the zone’s bulls.
The Bulls may get an edge in the market in the coming days if the support level where the price is can hold on the daily time frame at the report’s writing. If the zone can prove relevant for the bulls, we shall see a bullish run to the high of 1.21896.
The Bears’ dominance on the weekly time frame rejected every upward advancement of the bulls from the high of 1.21896.
Conclusion and Weekly Price Objectives
The U.S. dollar is likely to regain more strength as we see the government are giving their citizens money to boost spending. The covid19 vaccines program is effective as more people are getting vaccinated and the rate of infected persons drops.
The Euro zones are equally responding better also as we see that manufacturing companies are picking up.
We anticipate an extension of the bearish trend after a correction of the weekly time frame, and the rate of inflation will determine the outcome of the monetary policies.
