Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early trade and the current price at 1.1192, the direction of the EUR/USD the rest of the session on Monday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the uptrending Gann angle at 1.1191.
A sustained move over 1.1191 will indicate the presence of buyers. The first target is the Fibonacci level at 1.1209.
Overtaking 1.1209 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could generate the upside momentum needed to challenge a longer-term downtrending Gann angle at 1.1244.
A sustained move under 1.1209 will signal the presence of sellers. The first downside target is the long-term Fibonacci level at 1.1185.
Taking out 1.1185 could trigger an acceleration to the downside with the next target the main 50% level at 1.1146.
Basically, we’re looking for an upside bias to develop on a sustained move over 1.1209, and for a downside bias to develop on a sustained move under 1.1185.
