EUR/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.1873; (P) 1.1912; (R1) 1.1943; More….

Range trading continues in EUR/USD and intraday bias remains neutral first. On the upside, above 1.1989 will target 55 day EMA (now at 1.2044) . Firm break there will indicate completion of correction from 1.2348 and bring retest of this high. On the downside, however, break of 1.1834 will extend the correction from 1.2348 to 38.2% retracement of 1.0635 to 1.2348 at 1.1694.

In the bigger picture, rise from 1.0635 is seen as the third leg of the pattern from 1.0339 (2017 low). Further rally could be seen to cluster resistance at 1.2555 next, (38.2% retracement of 1.6039 to 1.0339 at 1.2516). This will remain the favored case as long as 1.1602 support holds. We’d be alerted to topping sign around 1.2516/55. But sustained break there will carry long term bullish implications.
