EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro US Dollar

 

On the downside, there is a crucial bullish trend line with support at 1.1870 forming on the hourly chart of EUR/USD. The pair resumed its uptrend from 1.1830 and currently trading above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 1.1909 high to 1.1830 low.

 

However, there is a major resistance near 1.1890, which is near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 1.1909 high to 1.1830 low. A break and close above 1.1890-1.1900 is needed for EUR/USD to gain momentum.

 

On the downside, the 1.1870 support remains a good buy zone with resistances as 1.1890, 1.1910 and 1.1950.
