EUR/USD Mid-Session Technical Analysis for October 29, 2019

Based on the early price action and the current price at 1.1083, the direction of the EUR/USD is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the 50% level at 1.1085 and the uptrending Gann angle at 1.1079.

The Euro is trading lower on Tuesday, while remaining rangebound for a second trading session. The price action suggests investor indecision and impending volatility with the single currency trading inside Friday’s range. Perhaps keeping the market in a holding pattern are concerns over the Federal Reserve interest rate decision on Wednesday.

At 11:49 GMT, the EUR/USD is trading 1.1083, down 0.0016 or -0.15%.

Traders are fairly confident the Fed will cut its benchmark rate 25-basis points on Wednesday. They are somewhat confident the central bank will pass on a December rate cut and probably cut again in March 2020. A hawkish Fed monetary policy statement will be bearish for the EUR/USD. A dovish Fed, or one that sees the possibility of a December rate cut will be bullish for the EUR/USD.

Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action and the current price at 1.1083, the direction of the EUR/USD is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the 50% level at 1.1085 and the uptrending Gann angle at 1.1079.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 1.1085 will indicate the presence of buyers. If the move is able to generate enough upside momentum then look for the rally to possibly extend into the downtrending Gann angle at 1.1119, followed closely by the short-term pivot at 1.1126.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 1.1079 will signal the presence of buyers. Taking out 1.1073 should lead to a test of the downtrending Gann angle at 1.1059.

Crossing to the weak side of the angle at 1.1059 will put the EUR/USD in a bearish position with the next target the main 50% level at 1.1029.
