Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
Based on the early trade, the direction of the EUR/USD the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the main Fibonacci level at 1.1811.
A sustained move under 1.1811 will indicate the presence of sellers. This could lead to a quick test of the 50% level at 1.1753. Crossing to the weak side of this level will indicate the selling is getting stronger with the next target the minor bottom at 1.1727. Taking out this level could trigger an acceleration to the downside with 1.1676 the next major target.
Overtaking and sustaining a move over 1.1811 will signal the presence of buyers. This could generate a fast rally into the minor top at 1.1841. There is plenty of room to the upside so taking out 1.1841 could trigger an acceleration. This could lead to an eventual test of the main top at 1.1997.
Basically, we’re looking for a bullish bias to develop on a sustained move over 1.1811 and for a bearish bias to develop on a sustained move under 1.1753. Holding inside these prices will indicate investor indecision and impending volatility.
