EUR/USD Technical Analysis
After a major decline, the Euro found support near the 1.0780 and 1.0785 levels against the US Dollar. As a result, the EUR/USD pair started a decent upward move and recovered above the 1.0820 resistance.
Moreover, there was a close above the 1.0840 and the 50 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the pair climbed above the 1.0875 level and traded as high as 1.0890 on FXOpen.
It is currently correcting lower and trading below the 1.0875 level. Besides, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.0830 low to 1.0890 high.
However, there are many supports on the downside, starting with 1.0860. More importantly, there is a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.0855 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.
The 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.0830 low to 1.0890 high is also near the 1.0860 level to provide support. Therefore, dips in EUR/USD are likely to remain supported.
Any further losses could push the pair back into a bearish zone towards the 1.0820 and 1.0800 support levels. Conversely, the pair could bounce back from 1.0860 or 1.0850.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 1.0880 level. A clear break above the 1.0880 and 1.0900 levels could open the doors for a larger recovery towards the 1.0950 level.

Therefore, a clear break above the 110.75 and 110.80 levels won’t be easy. The next key resistance is near the 111.00 area (the previous support).
On the other hand, the USD/JPY pair might start another decline from 110.60. However, there are a few key supports on the downside near the 109.80 level, where the bulls might emerge.
