EUR/USD Technical Analysis

The Euro failed on many occasions to clear the 1.2200 resistance zone against the US Dollar. As a result, the EUR/USD pair started a fresh decline below the 1.2150 and 1.2120 support levels.

The pair even broke the 1.2080 support level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It cleared the key 1.2055 support zone and traded as low as 1.2011 on FXOpen.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro Dollar

EUR/USD is currently correcting higher and trading above 1.2025. It is testing the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.2086 high to 1.2011 low. On the upside, the first resistance is near the 1.2055 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.2065 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD. The trend line is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.2086 high to 1.2011 low.

A successful break above the 1.2065 resistance and the 50 hourly simple moving average is must for a steady recovery in the near term.

Conversely, the pair could start a fresh decline from 1.2055. An initial support is near the 1.2025 level. The next major support is near the 1.2000 zone. Any more losses could lead the pair towards the 1.1950 zone.

USD/CHF Technical Analysis Dollar Swiss Franc

There is also a short-term expanding triangle forming with support near 0.8950 on the hourly chart. As long as USD/CHF is above the triangle support, it could climb back towards the 0.9000 resistance level in the near term. The next key resistance could be near the 0.9040 level.

On the downside, the main support is near the 0.8945 level. If the pair fails to stay above the 0.8955 and 0.8945 support levels, there is a risk of a larger decline.

In the stated case, USD/CHF could decline towards the 0.8920 support. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support near the 0.8900 on the same chart, where the bulls are likely to take a strong stand.
