Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action and the current price at 1.1116, the direction of the EUR/USD the rest of the session on Wednesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the long-term downtrending Gann angle at 1.1109.
A sustained move over 1.1109 will indicate the presence of buyers. This could trigger an intraday rally into a short-term downtrending Gann angle at 1.1139. Overcoming this angle will indicate the buying is getting stronger with the next target angle coming in at 1.1159.
A sustained move under 1.1109 will signal the presence of sellers. This is a potential trigger point for a spike into the pivot at 1.1085. Look for buyers on the first test of this level.
If 1.1085 fails as support then look for a potential acceleration to the downside with the next target angle coming in at 1.1039.
