Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action, the direction of the EUR/USD on Thursday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the uptrending Gann angle at 1.1339.
A sustained move over 1.1339 will indicate the return of buyers. If this generates enough upside bias then look for the rally to possibly extend into the Fibonacci level at 1.1375, followed by an uptrending Gann angle at 1.1389 and a 50% level at 1.1402.
A sustained move under 1.1339 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger a break into the next uptrending Gann angle at 1.1314. This is the last potential support angle before the 1.1289 main bottom.
Taking out 1.1289 will reaffirm the downtrend with the December 14, 2018 main bottom at 1.1270 the next target.
