Daily Technical Analysis
The main trend is down according to the daily swing chart. The next target is the main bottom at 1.0981. The EUR/USD is in no position to change the main trend to up, but the prolonged sell-off has put it in a position to post a closing price reversal bottom.
The main range is 1.0879 to 1.1239. Its retracement zone at 1.1059 to 1.1017 is controlling the near-term direction of the EUR/USD. The Forex pair is currently straddling the lower end of this zone.
Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action and the current price at 1.1016, the direction of the EUR/USD the rest of the session on Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the main Fibonacci level at 1.1017.
A sustained move under 1.1017 will indicate the presence of sellers. Crossing to the bearish side of the downtrending Gann angle at 1.1013 will indicate the selling is getting stronger. If this creates enough downside momentum, we could see a break into the support cluster at 1.0983 to 1.0981.
A sustained move over 1.1017 will signal the presence of buyers. If the move can generate enough upside momentum then look for a rally into the main 50% level at 1.1059 over the near-term.
