EUR/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.1507; (P) 1.1544; (R1) 1.1584; More…..

Intraday bias in EUR/USD remains neutral for consolidation above 1.1504 temporary low. Another recovery could be seen to 4 hour 55 EMA (now at 1.1637). But upside should be limited well below 1.1814 resistance to bring another decline. We maintain the view that corrective rise from 1.1300 has completed with three waves up to 1.1814 already. Below 1.1504 will target a test on 1.1300 low first.

In the bigger picture, a medium term bottom should be in place at 1.1300, on bullish convergence condition in daily MACD and some consolidations would be seen. But still, note that EUR/USD was rejected by 38.2% retracement of 1.6039 (2008 high) to 1.0339 (2017 low) at 1.2516. That carries some long term bearish implications. Thus, we’d expect fall from 1.2555 high to resume after consolidation completes. Below 1.1300 should send EUR/USD through 61.8% retracement of 1.0339 to 1.2555 at 1.1186. And, in that case, EUR/USD would head to retest 1.0339 (2017 low).
