EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Euro rejecting 1.1430 resistance ahead of 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 enjoyed a rally in the last 5 days of trading and has currently found support at 1.1400 and the 50 SMA. The RSI is turning bearish, the MACD has a bearish crossover and the Stochastic is in negative territories. 
  • Bulls tried to break above 1.1430 resistance but this price has not been accepted. A retest of 1.1400 seems to be the path of least resistance at this stage. A break below 1.1400 can lead to a drop to 1.1350 and 1.1300 levels.
