EUR/USD Technical Analysis: EUR/USD big bears still on holiday as 1.1530 key support holds

  • EUR/USD bears took their holidays in mid-August and haven’t been back yet, leaving the main bear trend on hold. 
  • EUR/USD is currently consolidating the mid-August bull move forming a triangle compression pattern with the 1.1530 level as strong support. As long as the market stays above this level, bulls can potentially resume the bull momentum and reach the key 1.1750 resistance level from July. Bulls also need a breakout above the bear trendline starting on August 28. 
  • Conversely, a sustained breakout below 1.1530 would signal that bears are back to work and that the main bear trend is still in effect.
