EUR/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that starting at the support of 1.1276 we had a major pivotal point which could either be the start of a medium-term bullish move up or a strong, long-term trend bearish breakdown. I thought the price was more likely to fall than rise over the day. I wasn’t truly correct although there was a downwards move within the general movement. The resistance at 1.1322 held and the price is keeping its medium-term bearish technical pattern but is trading on relatively low volatility. I would take a bearish bias but the ECB will be giving its monthly input today so that is likely to cause a spike in volatility and unpredictable price movement. Note that we are close to long-term lows so a spike to 1.1276 or lower and then a strong bullish bounce could be the start of a medium-term bullish trend.

EURUSD

There is nothing of high importance due today concerning the USD. Regarding the EUR, there will be a release of the ECB’s Main Refinancing Rate at 12:45pm London time followed 45 minutes later by the usual press conference.
