From the high of the year, set on July 18 near the level of 1.125, the price of EUR/USD fell in 1 month to the support of 1.085 (-3.4%). Today, the EUR/USD chart shows that the market is forming a rebound from this support, which has been in place since mid-June. What will be the further development?
→ The market is in an uptrend (indicated by the blue channel) in 2023 and its lower boundary, which forms a powerful block of support at the level of 1.085, can help the bounce develop into a meaningful swing.
→ Support may come from SMA (100).
→ The higher the price of EUR/USD rises, the closer the level of 1.095 becomes, which acted as support; but after the pin bar on August 10, the level was broken, and now resistance can be expected from it. If this is indeed the case, the market will form a weak bounce from the block of supports in the 1.085 area — a threatening sign for the current ascending channel.
→ Tomorrow morning (between 10:15 am and 11:00 am GMT+3) economic data from the Eurozone will be published, including the Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), which is considered a leading indicator of the state of the economy. Last month, PMI values set multi-month lows, showing a slowdown in the economy in Europe, which led to a fall in the EUR/USD rate (shown by the arrow). It is possible that the market will get a new reason for a bearish momentum.
→ The media are writing about the weakening of the dollar on the eve of the symposium in Jackson Hole, where Powell is scheduled to speak on August 25. If the head of the Fed is clearly leaving the doors open for new rate hikes, this will allow the dollar to strengthen and put pressure on the EUR/USD rate.
