EURUSD Outlook & Technical Analysis for US Binary Options
The EURGBP becomes a primary technical driver of volatility between the Euro and the Great British Pound, as traders look forward to the forthcoming date of Brexit on Jan 31, 2020. The U.K. election was also a significant driver of volatility as smart money moved from the EUR to the GBP on BinaryCent platform.
The United States is not only in a trade war with China but also at the brink of war with Iran following the killing of Soleimani. These events bring an increase in volatility in USD pairs.

EURUSD Technical Analysis
EURUSD Long term Projection: Bearish and Slowing
The above monthly chart shows the EURUSD pair closing above a hidden bearish accumulation pattern on Dec 02, 2019, after a prolonged eighteen months bearish trend.
We expect a further increase in the forex exchange of the two most traded major currencies across broker and exchange terminals.
Failure of the 1.08848 support signals an increase in demand for the Greenback and emphasizes the weakness of the Euro.
Although the EURUSD currency pair sets a higher low on Nov 25, 2019, compared to Sep 30, 2019, low, an impending hidden bearish divergence may switch the trend direction to bearish as the pair trades near the 200-Weekly Moving Average.
EURUSD Medium-Term Projections: Bullish Correction Phase
The daily time frame clearly shows the EURUSD forming higher lows, a major level being the price close above bearish resistance on Dec 26, 2019.
The USD gains against the EUR at press time, bringing the pair slightly above the 1.10663 support, with no sign of a price recovery to the upside.
The MA-200 serves as strong support for the EURUSD holding the USD from further gains. A price close below the 1.11010 support should confirm more sell-off.
Finally, the recent dominance of the GBP through a regular bearish divergence on Sep 01, 2019, brings about a decline in the volatility of the EURUSD, and weakness of the Euro.
However, if Dec 01, 2019, pin-bar candlestick formation holds, we may see an increase in volatility for the EURUSD.
The EURUSD generally maintains a bearish outlook at press time.
