EUR/USD Current price: 1.2198View Live Chart for the EUR/USD
Again the common currency was cold-bloodedly sold against most of its rivals, reaching 1.2166 against the greenback. Late bounce propelled by US indexes erasing early losses, so far remains capped below 1.2210, and the hourly chart for the pair shows 20 SMA capping the upside at mentioned level, while indicators hold flat in negative territory. The pair is weighted by an increasing pessimism among investors over the general global slowdown; Chinese GDP figures to be release today, will play a huge role in the currency destiny, as further signs of economic deterioration will lead to more dollar and yen demand in detriment of high yielders. In the 4 hours chart indicators look exhausted near oversold readings, although no buying interest is seen around: price needs at least to regain the 1.2250 area, to be able to trigger limited upside corrections this Friday. In the meantime, a break below 1.2140 low is needed to confirm a bearish acceleration towards the 1.1870 area, next big target of current trend.
Support levels: 1.2140 1.2100 1.2060
Resistance levels: 1.2210 1.2250 1.2290
