EUR/USD technical analysis: There has been a textbook retest of the previous wave low

  • EUR/USD trades flat this morning as there is a a lack of key drivers to inspire volatility.
  • Yesterday the previous wave low provided some resistance for a move lower.

4-Hour Chart

The EUR/USD completed a bearish test of the previous wave low on the 4-hour chart

After falling on a positive risk rally EUR/USD could not recover past the 1.1071 resistance zone.

This has now set up a bearish scenario as the price is now making lower highs and lower lows on the 4-hour timeframe.

We could, of course, find some support closer to the 1.10 psychological support level but it remains to be seen if the price can break that much lower.

On the bulllish side, there is also a divergence forming on the RSI indicator which could show some signs of a momentum slowdown.

The price made a lower low while the indicator made a higher low (maked by the red lines). This could potenially mean in the short term we have run out of downside momentum.
