Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action, the direction of the EUR/USD the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at 1.1164 and the uptrending Gann angle at 1.1152.
A counter-trend rally could begin if buyers can take out the downtrending Gann angle at 1.1152 with strong volume. The daily chart shows there is room to the upside with room to rally into the main Fibonacci level at 1.1185.
Taking out 1.1152 and sustaining the move will signal the presence of sellers. If this move creates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to possibly extend into the main bottom at 1.1135, followed by the uptrending Gann angle at 1.1132.
Look for a technical bounce on the first test of 1.1135 to 1.1132, however, if it fails then look for the selling to possible extend into 1.1112 to 1.1109.
