Daily 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 short-term 50% level at 1.1345.
A sustained move over 1.1345 will signal the presence of buyers. If this move can generate enough upside momentum then look for a potential rally into the downtrending Gann angle at 1.1394. Since the main trend is down, sellers could come in on the first test of this Gann angle.
Overcoming 1.1394 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could lead to a further rally into an uptrending Gann angle at 1.1416. Crossing to the strong side of this angle will likely lead to a test of the next downtrending Gann angle at 1.1434. This is followed by a major 50% level at 1.1447, another downtrending Gann angle at 1.1454 and the main top at 1.1474.
A sustained move under 1.1345 will indicate the presence of sellers. This could lead to a retest of today’s intraday low at 1.1327, followed by the support cluster at 1.1316 to 1.1315.
The Fibonacci level at 1.1315 is very important support. If it fails, the EUR/USD could plunge into the next uptrending Gann angle at 1.1266. This is the last potential support angle before the 1.1216 main bottom.
