EURUSD Technical Analysis
Monthly Resistances 1.25559
Monthly Supports 1.19348, 1.14950, 1.10291
The third wave of covid19 pandemic is another factor affecting the Euro and other European countries. The German Chancellor Angela Merkel urges her citizens to stay at home during the Easter break to curtail the virus’s spread.
The EURUSD pair is likely to end the first quarter of the year in a bearish mode as the U.S. dollar increases in strength gradually. A close below the 1.19348 level will drop to the 1.14950 support level that was previously a resistance zone.
However, the 1.19348 zones can become a support level if the bears fail to dominate the market, thereby inviting the bulls to take over the zone to retest the high of the year 2021.
Weekly Chart Bullish
Weekly Resistance Level: 1.23497
Weekly Support Level: 1.19521, 1.18356
On your weekly chart, you can see that the candles have been relatively quiet for three weeks due to the events happening around the Euro zones and the United States of America regarding the covid19 third waves, FOMC, ECB, and the covid19 vaccinees.
The signal line on the indicator shows that the price of EURUSD has entered the oversold region, so we expect the price to go up from that zone. If the Bulls are stronger, we shall see price retest the high of 1.23497.
However, nothing is inevitable in the market because different forces can cause the price to close lower, and the Bears can push down the price to the low of 1.18356 and beyond or go the opposite way.
EURUSD Daily Chart Time frame Projections: Bearish
Daily Resistance Level: 1.21896, 1.21801, 1.21695, 1.23495
Daily Support Level: 1.20230, 1.19521
The Breaking down of the Bullish accumulation of the support level as of 26 February 2021 indicated that the U.S. dollar was more substantial as the economy stimulation package that was passed also helped the dollar gain momentum.
If the bulls can close above the 1.19521 levels, we expect the price to rise to the 1.21896 resistance level, but a close below the 1.18359 level will attract more traders to open a short position.
A possible bullish scenario can come to play on the daily time frame if the support zone of 1.18359 can hold for a bounce to the EURUSD pair’s upside.
The bearish trend is at play on the weekly timeframe of the EURUSD pair. The down trend should continue at the break down of the support level of 1.19521 by the Bears as the U.S. dollar gets stronger.
Conclusion and Weekly Price Objectives
The EURUSD pair has not been trending in the past weeks as investors and traders await the testimony of Powell, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, and other members of FOMC on their plans for rising yields that will influence the future direction of the US dollar.
Similarly, the ECB is more interested in the rise in yields and may not tighten the monetary policy like that of the United States.
The market may be unpredictable and unstable for the week as both currencies are subject to the various ECB meetings and Powell’s testimony. Therefore, it is advisable for forex brokers and other market participants to stay safe and wait for the market to decide its direction.
