EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Ascending trend-line support break paves the way for a retest of yearly lows, around 1.1215 region


   •  Having failed to move back above 100-hour SMA, the pair met with some aggressive supply and tumbled to sub-1.1300 level, or fresh monthly lows, on dismal Euro-zone PMI prints.

   •  The steep intraday decline dragged technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart into oversold territory and turned out to be the only factor limiting further downside, at least for the time being.

   •  Meanwhile, the pair already seems to have confirmed a near-term bearish breakthrough an ascending trend-line support, extending from yearly lows through lows set on Nov. 28 and Dec. 11.

   •  Moreover, technical indicators on the 4-hourly chart have just started gaining negative momentum and hence, the pair remains vulnerable to head back towards retesting yearly lows.
