EUR/USD Current price: 1.3352
The EUR/USD was strongly affected by disappointing EU data this Thursday, falling to a daily low of 1.3314. The US session saw price consolidating and even correcting higher as positive local readings saw stocks bouncing from their lows, to close pretty much unchanged. As for the short term, the hourly chart shows price around former low of 1.3350, while 20 SMA heads south above current price, offering short term resistance around 1.3380. Indicators corrected oversold readings and head north, although still in negative territory, which suggest more gains are still unlikely. In the 4 hours chart technical readings stand in negative territory, although with no actual strength. Overall, the downside is favored even in upward corrective movements up to 1.3410 price zone. Lose of the 1.3310 support area, will expose the daily ascendant trend line today around 1.3270.
