Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action and the current price at 1.1143, the direction of the EUR/USD the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the short-term 50% level at 1.1139.
A sustained move under 1.1139 will indicate the presence of sellers. If this generates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to possibly extend into the uptrending Gann angle at 1.1117, followed by the short-term Fibonacci level at 1.1112. Watch for counter-trend buyers on a test of these levels.
Look for an acceleration to the downside if 1.1112 fails as support. This could trigger a break into an uptrending Gann angle at 1.1072.
Holding the short-term 50% level at 1.1139 will signal the presence of buyers. If this fuels a turnaround then look for a potential rally into 1.1185 and a downtrending Gann angle at 1.1192. This is a potential trigger point for an acceleration into 1.1220.
