EUR/USD failed to settle above the resistance level at 1.1900 and is trying to settle back below the support at 1.1880. RSI has moved back into the moderate territory so there is plenty of room to gain additional downside momentum in case the right catalysts emerge.
If EUR/USD settles below the support at 1.1880, it will head towards the next support level at 1.1850. A successful test of this support level will open the way to the test of the next support which is located near the recent lows at 1.1830. In case EUR/USD declines below 1.1830, it will head towards the next support level at 1.1800.
On the upside, EUR/USD must stay above 1.1880 to have a chance to develop upside momentum in the near term. The next resistance level is located at 1.1900. This level has already been tested several times in recent trading sessions and proved its strength. If EUR/USD settles above 1.1900, it will head towards the resistance at 1.1925.
