EUR/USD Forex Technical Analysis – Weekly Chart Shows Strength Over 1.1347, Weakness Under 1.1328Based on last week’s close at 1.1333, the direction of the EUR/USD this week is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the uptrending Gann angle at 1.1347 and the downtrending Gann angle at 1.1328.
The Euro soared against the U.S. Dollar last week, helped by dovish comments from U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell and less-dovish remarks from European Central Bank President Mario Draghi.
A plunge in U.S. Treasury yields and weaker-than-expected U.S. labor market data helped make the U.S. Dollar a less attractive investment. Increased odds of a rate cut by the Fed also contributed to the greenback’s weakness.
Last week, the EUR/USD settled at 1.1333, up 0.0164 or +1.47%.
