Forex Technical Update

Previous: EUR/USD Sets Post-FOMC-Reaction Range Between 1.2635 and 1.2740 (6/20)

EUR/USD 1H Chart 9:45AM EDT 6/21/2012


The EUR/USD is pushing lower after the stock market opened up in the 6/21 US session (9:30AM EDT). It broke below the 1.2635 low established after the FOMC statement. Also the RSI in the 1H chart is falling below 40, a sign that the bullish momentum established this week is lost.

Still there is just a bit more room to the downside before we can call the market topping.

First of all there are some support factors near 1.26. We have the 200-hour simple moving average and a rising trendline for June's correction channel. A break below this with the RSI dipping below 30, are the first signs we have completed June's correction rally.

Then if the market falls below the 1.2550 level, EUR/USD would have cleared this week's low to form a double top. This opens up June's low of 1.2285-1.23.
