FXOpen

EUR/USD is currently correcting lower and facing a strong resistance near the 1.1040 level. EUR/JPY is also showing a few bearish signs and it could decline further as long as it is below 119.00.

  • There was a break below a major bullish trend line with support near 1.1000 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.
  • EUR/JPY declined steadily below 120.00 and it even tested the 118.20 zone.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis

This past week, the Euro started a solid recovery wave above the 1.1000 resistance area against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair broke the 1.1040 resistance area to move into a positive zone.

Moreover, there was a break above the 1.1080 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The pair traded as high as 1.1147 and it recently started a downside correction.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro US Dollar

There was a break below the 1.1100 and 1.1080 levels. More importantly, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support near 1.1000 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.

The pair even broke the 50 hourly SMA and tested the 1.0940 support area. A low is formed near 1.0939 and the pair is currently rising. It is trading above the 1.1000 level, plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.1147 high to 1.0939 low.

However, the previous support near the 1.1040 level and the 50 hourly SMA is now acting as a barrier for the bulls. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.1147 high to 1.0939 low is also preventing a fresh increase.

Therefore, a clear break above the 1.1040 and 1.1050 resistance levels is needed for a fresh increase towards 1.1100 and 1.1150. If not, EUR/USD is likely to decline again towards 1.0940 or 1.0920 in the near term.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis

The Euro followed a bearish path from well above the 121.00 zone against the Japanese Yen. The EUR/JPY pair broke the key 120.00 support area to move into a bearish zone.

Moreover, there was a close below the 119.00 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The pair traded as low as 118.20 and it is currently correcting higher.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis Euro Japanese Yen

There was a break above the 118.50 resistance. Besides, the pair climbed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 119.70 high to 118.20 low.

On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 118.80 level. The main resistance is near the 119.00 level. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 118.95 on the hourly chart.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 119.70 high to 118.20 low is also near the 118.95 level to act as a resistance along with the 50 hourly SMA.

Therefore, a break above the 119.00 resistance and the 50 hourly SMA is needed for a strong recovery. If not, the EUR/JPY pair is likely to resume its decline below 118.50. The main supports are near 118.20 and 117.80.
