EUR/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.1486; (P) 1.1518; (R1) 1.1551; More…..

EUR/USD’s breach of 1.1463 suggests resumption of fall from 1.1814. Intraday bias is turned back to the downside for retesting 1.1300 low next. On the upside, above 1.1549 minor resistance will now indicate short term bottoming and bring lengthier consolidation. But for now, we’d hold on to the view that correction from 1.1300 has completed at 1.1814. Thus, we’d expect upside to be limited well below 1.1814 to bring another decline to 1.1300 eventually.

In the bigger picture, corrective pattern from 1.1300 could have completed at 1.1814 after hitting 38.2% retracement of 1.2555 to 1.1300at 1.1779. Decisive break of 1.1300 will resume the down trend from 1.2555 to 61.8% retracement of 1.0339 (2017 low) to 1.2555 at 1.1186 next. Sustained break there will pave the way to retest 1.0339. On the upside, break of 1.1814 will delay the bearish case and extend the correction from 1.1300 with another rise before completion.
