US Housing Price Index

Recently in the US, the Housing Price Index for April 2018 was released by the Federal Housing Finance Agency. The market was looking for a rise of around 0.3% in the Housing Price Index in April 2018, compared with the previous month.

 

The actual result was below the market forecast of +0.3% as there was a rise of 0.1% in the HPI. Moreover, the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index for June 2018 was also released. It posted a decline from the last reading of 34.4 to 19.9.

 

The EUR/USD pair is currently correcting higher and it seems like it may perhaps move above the 1.1640 resistance zone in the near term.

 

EUR/USD Technical Analysis

The Euro declined heavily from well above the 1.1850 level against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair broke many supports on the way down such as 1.1640 and 1.1550 to settle below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

 

EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro US Dollar

 

The pair traded close to the 1.1500 level and formed a low at 1.1507. Later, an upside correction was initiated and the pair moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 1.1851 high to 1.1507 low.

 

More importantly, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at 1.1550 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD. The pair is currently trading above the 100 hourly SMA, but it is facing a major barrier near the 1.1640 level.

 

The 1.1640 level was a support earlier and now it coincides with the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 1.1851 high to 1.1507 low. Therefore, a break above the 1.1640 resistance may perhaps open the doors for more gains in the near term.
