Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action and the current price at 1.1181, the direction of the EUR/USD the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the uptrending Gann angle at 1.1182.
A sustained move under 1.1182 will indicate the selling is getting stronger. This could trigger a spike into the next uptrending Gann angle at 1.1147. This is the last potential support angle before the 1.1135 and 1.1112 main bottoms.
A sustained move over the Fibonacci level at 1.1185 will signal the presence of buyers. If this creates enough upside momentum then look for the buying to extend into the short-term 50% level at 1.1218.
Overtaking 1.1218 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could trigger a further rally into a downtrending Gann angle at 1.1239, followed by the short-term 61.8% level at 1.1243.
Until the main trend changes to up, traders are likely to continue to sell rallies into resistance.
