The Euro fell to a more than two-year low against the U.S. Dollar on Friday as a weak growth outlook weighed on the single currency. However, a drop in Treasury yields late in the session drove the greenback lower, triggering a short-covering rally into the close. Some traders attributed the recovery to a successful test of technical support levels.

On Friday, the EUR/USD settled at 1.0942, up 0.0021 or +0.20%.

According to some reports, the early selling was fueled by quarter-end rebalancing flows, which boosted demand for the greenback.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Analysis

The main trend is down according to the daily swing chart, however, Friday’s closing price reversal bottom may be signaling a short-term shift in sentiment, but not a short-term change in trend.

A trade through 1.0959 will confirm the closing price reversal bottom. This could trigger a two to three day counter-trend rally.

A move through 1.0905 will negate the closing price reversal bottom and signal a resumption of the downtrend.

The short-term range is 1.1110 to 1.0905. Its retracement zone at 1.1007 to 1.1032 is the first upside target. Since the main trend is down, sellers could come in on a test of this zone.
