Forex Technical Update

Previous: EUR/USD is Directionless Between 1.30 and 1.32 (4/19)




The EUR/USD is wrapping up the week with a push above not only this week's high, but the previous week's high near 1.3210. Now, the 1.33 area will be the next key resistance. The 4H chart shows a developing descending triangle with a more or less flat support around 1.30, and a declining resistance that is projected to 1.33 if price action continues to rally the next session or two (4/23, 24).

The 4H chart has lost its bearish bias except for the declining resistance. It is more in a consolidation/congestion mode. If the 1.33 handle does provide resistance or if the market fails to reach 1.33, our initial bearish expectation should be limited to a retest of the 1.32-1.3170 area (the middle and mean price action of the consolidation, as well as the 200 4H SMA).

Below 1.3150, we might open up the bearish short-term outlook to retest the 1.30 support area, with 1.2970 as the key support pivot to break before opening up further bearish outlook.
