The Euro accelerated lower after Strong US retail sales (May 0.5% vs Apr 0.3%, revised upward from -0.2%) inflated dollar and reduced greatly probability of rate cut on FOMC policy meeting next week.
Fresh weakness surged through Fibo support at 1.1259 (38.2% of 1.1116/1.1347) and cracked 50% retracement at 1.1231, approaching key support zone between 1.1218/04 (converged 20/55/30SMA/daily cloud base/Fibo 61.8% of 1.1116/1.1347). Weaker daily techs on south-heading momentum/stochastic/RSI support scenario, with close below daily cloud base, needed to confirm double-top at 1.1347/43 (7/12 June high).
Bears may face headwinds from 1.1218/04 support zone and reduce the pace, for consolidation before final break lower.
Broken Fibo 38.2% (1.1259) now offers initial resistance, guarding pivotal barriers at 1.1275/79 (broken 100SMA/daily cloud top) which need to stay intact and keep bears in play.
