The pair even broke the 1.1945 support level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It traded as low as 1.1882 on FXOpen before the pair started consolidating losses. It climbed above 1.1900, but there was no bullish momentum.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro Dollar

An initial resistance is near the 1.1915 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.1951 high to 1.1882 low. The next major resistance is near the 1.1925 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

There is also a key declining channel forming with resistance near 1.1930 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD. The channel resistance is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.1951 high to 1.1882 low.

Therefore, the pair is likely to face a strong resistance near the 1.1925 and 1.1930 levels. A clear break above 1.1930 might start a fresh increase towards the 1.2000 resistance.

If not, there are chances of more losses in EUR/USD below the 1.1880 support zone. The next major support is near the 1.1850 level, below which the pair could dive towards the 1.1800 support level.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis

The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 130.39 swing high to 129.49 low is also near the 130.00 level. A clear close above the 130.00 level and a follow up move above the 50 hourly simple moving average could open the doors for a steady increase.
