The EUR/USD ended its period of stability and began falling as the US Dollar gains ground across the board. What are the next levels to watch?

The Technical Confluences Indicator shows that the pair has some support at 1.1596 which is the convergence of the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month, the one-week low, and the Pivot Point one-day Support 3.

If the EUR/USD loses this level, the door is open to a free-fall to the 1.1511 area. This is the confluence of the Pivot Point one-month Support 1, the one-month low, and the 2018 low.
