FXOpen

EUR/USD started a decent upward move above 1.1250, but it is facing hurdles near 1.1350. EUR/JPY is also trading in a positive zone, but it must surpass 121.00 for more gains.

Important Takeaways for EUR/USD and EUR/JPY

  • The Euro is trading with a bullish bias above the 1.1250 and 1.1280 resistance levels.
  • There is a connecting bullish trend line forming with support near 1.1305 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis

After forming a support base above 1.1200, the Euro started a decent increase against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair traded above the 1.1250 resistance zone to enter an uptrend.

The pair even surpassed the 1.1300 resistance level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. However, the bulls struggled to clear the 1.1350 resistance zone. A high is formed near 1.1348 on FXOpen and the pair is currently correcting lower.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro Dollar

There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the 1.1233 low to 1.1348 high. On the downside, there is a short-term support forming near the 1.1300 level.

There is also a connecting bullish trend line forming with support near 1.1305 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD. If there is a break below the trend line, the pair could continue to move down towards the 1.1280 support area.

An intermediate support is near the 1.1290 level, which is the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the 1.1233 low to 1.1348 high.

If the pair fails to stay above the 1.1280 support and the 50 hourly simple moving average, there could be heavy losses in the coming sessions. Conversely, the pair could start a fresh increase above the 1.1320 resistance level. A successful close above the 1.1350 resistance could open the doors for more upsides towards 1.1400 in the near term.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis

The Euro traded below the 120.00 support this past week against the Japanese Yen. The EUR/JPY pair traded as low as 119.30 before it started a steady recovery wave.

There was a break above the 120.00 resistance zone and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The pair traded as high as 121.10 and recently corrected lower. It tested the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 119.30 low to 121.10 high.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis Euro Yen

However, the 130.30 region is acting as a support along with the 50 hourly simple moving average. The 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 119.30 low to 121.10 high is also near the 120.30 level to provide a strong support.

On the upside, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 120.90 on the hourly chart. If the pair fails to continue higher above the trend line resistance and 121.00, it could continue to move down.

The first major support below 120.30 is near the 120.00 level. Any further losses may perhaps lead the pair towards the 119.50 level. Conversely, EUR/JPY might continue to rise above the 121.00 and 121.10 resistance levels. The next major resistance is near the 122.00 level.
