EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro holding above 1.1400 ahead of the FOMC


  • EUR/USD is trading in a bear trend below the 200-period simple moving average on the 4-hour chart ahead of the FOMC this Thursday at 19.00 GMT.
  • EUR/USD has been advancing in the last 5 days of trading and has currently found support above 1.1400 and the 50 SMA. The RSI is neutral, the MACD has a bearish crossover and the Stochastic is in negative territories. 
  • In order to reclaim some ground, bulls will need to overcome the 1.1430 resistance. A break of the level can lead to an acceleration to 1.1450 and 1.1470, Asian high (Nov.7). Alternatively, a break below 1.1400 can lead to a drop to 1.1350 and 1.1300 levels.
