EUR/USD Technical Analysis

This past week, the Euro faced an increase in selling pressure below 1.1780 against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair broke the 1.1700 support level to move further into a bearish zone.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro US Dollar

A support base was formed above 1.1600 and the pair recently started a decent upward move. There was a break above the 1.1650 and 1.1660 resistance levels. Moreover, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance near 1.1680 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.

The pair climbed above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the 1.1871 high to 1.1612 low. It is now trading above the 1.1720 level, but facing hurdles near 1.1740.

It seems like the 50% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the 1.1871 high to 1.1612 low is acting as a resistance. On the upside, the first major resistance is near the 1.1775 level. A clear break above 1.1775 could open the doors for more gains above the 1.1800 resistance.

Conversely, the pair might correct lower from 1.1740. An initial support is near the 1.1710 level. The next key support is near the 1.1695 level or the 50 hourly simple moving average, below which the pair is likely to revisit the 1.1612 low.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis

The Euro started a strong upward move from the 122.37 low against the Japanese Yen. The EUR/JPY pair broke the 122.80 and 123.00 resistance levels to start a convincing recovery wave.

During the rise, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near 122.80 on the hourly chart. The pair gained pace above the 123.50 resistance and settled well above the 50 hourly simple moving average.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis Euro Yen

It even spiked above 124.00 and traded as high as 124.24. The pair is currently correcting lower and trading below 124.20. An initial support is near the 123.80 level or the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the 122.37 low to 124.24 high.

The first major support on the downside is near the 123.50 level. The main support is near the 123.30 level since it is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the 122.37 low to 124.24 high.

On the upside, the EUR/JPY pair is likely to face hurdles near 124.20 and 124.25 levels. A successful close above the recent high might open the doors for a decent increase towards the 125.00 resistance level in the near term.
