Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early sideways trade, the direction of the EUR/USD is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the Fibonacci level at 1.1318 and the downtrending Gann angle at 1.1304. The Forex pair is currently trading between these two levels.
A sustained move over 1.1318 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this generates enough upside momentum then look for the rally to continue into an uptrending Gann angle at 1.1347 and last week’s high at 1.1348. Taking out this level could trigger a surge into a longer-term downtrending Gann angle at 1.1377.
A sustained move under 1.1304 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger a break into the 50% level at 1.1278. We could see a technical bounce on the first test of this level. If it fails then we could see a near-term break into the next uptrending Gann angle, currently at 1.1227.
