EUR/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.1468; (P) 1.1659 (R1) 1.1756; More…..

EUR/USD recovers mildly but intraday bias stays on the downside for 1.1509 low. Break there will confirm resumption of larger decline from 1.2555. EUR/USD should take out 50% retracement of 1.0339 to 1.2555 at 1.1447 with ease to 61.8% retracement at 1.1186. On the upside, above 1.1659 minor resistance will delay the bearish case and bring more consolidation first.

In the bigger picture, current development suggests that EUR/USD was rejected by 38.2% retracement of 1.6039 (2008 high) to 1.0339 (2017 low) at 1.2516. And, a medium term top was formed at 1.2555 already. Decline from there should extend further to 61.8% retracement of 1.0339 to 1.2555 at 1.1186 and below. For now, even in case of rebound, we won’t consider the fall from 1.2555 as finished as long as 1.1995 resistance holds.
