EURUSD technical Outlook - bearish ranging within Fibo levels (based on the article)

Daily price is located below 100 SMA/200 SMA in the bearish area of the chart for the ranging between Fibo support level at 1.0521 and Fibo resistance level at 1.0828.
If the price breaks 1.0521 support so the primary bearish trend will be resumed, if the price breaks 1.0828 resistance so the secondary rally will be started, otherwise - ranging.
  • "A sharp Euro recovery stalled at a familiar chart barrier below the 1.07 figure, hinting that a corrective bounce from a monthly low may have been exhausted. Near-term positioning has favored the downside since prices broke through the floor of a bearish Rising Wedge chart pattern two weeks ago."
  • "Near-term support is in the 1.0518-28 area (November 24 low, 23.6% Fibonacci expansion), with a daily close below that exposing the 1.0341-67 zone (December 15 low, 38.2% level). Alternatively, a push above support-turned-resistance at 1.0682 opens the door for a retest of the 38.2% Fib retracement at 1.0828."

EUR/USD to retest resistance line

Cuong Truong, 2017.02.24 22:32

It looks like a fake break out after all. The central bank is keeping the price of their USD up.
The price of EUR/USD will most likely retest that resistance line. I don't think it will hold, the price will then continues to drop to retest that support line.

EUR/USD - daily bearish trend to be started with 1.0493 support level (based on the article)

Daily price broke Senkou Span line which is the border of the Ichimoku cloud the the border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish trend on the chart. The price is trying to test 1.0493 support level to below for the bearish trend to be continuing with 1.0324 daily bearish target.


  • "Euro sellers have struggled to maintain downward momentum since the single currency found support below the 1.06 figure against the US Dollar two weeks ago. Still, overall positioning continues to favor continuation of the long term down trend."
  • "From here, a daily close below support in the 1.0518-28 area (November 24 low, 23.6% Fibonacci expansion) exposes the 1.0341-67 zone (December 15 low, 38.2% level). Alternatively, a turn above support-turned-resistance at 1.0682 paves the way for a retest of the 38.2% Fib retracement at 1.0828."

Trading News Events: U.S. ISM Non-Manufacturing (adapted from dailyfx)


  • "The recent batch of hawkish Fed rhetoric have moved interest-rate expectations, with Fed Fund Futures now pricing a greater than 70% probability for a March rate-hike, and the central bank may stay on course to implement higher borrowing-costs over the coming months especially as the U.S. economy approaches ‘full-employment.’ With that said, signs of stronger service-based activity may encourage Fed Chair Janet Yellen to join her colleagues and endorse a more hawkish outlook for monetary policy with the central bank head scheduled to speak ahead of the blackout period. However, a downtick in business sentiment may push Chair Yellen to tame interest rate expectations as ‘market-based measures of inflation compensation remain low; most survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations are little changed, on balance,’ and the central bank head may continue to promote a wait-and-see approach as ‘inflation moved up over the past year, mainly because of the diminishing effects of the earlier declines in energy prices and import prices.’"
  • "Nevertheless, the slowdown in private-sector lending accompanied by the recent slump in building activity may drag on the U.S. service-sector, and a dismal ISM print may undermine the recent advance in the greenback as it dampens the outlook for growth and inflation."


Bullish USD Trade: Gauge for Service-Based Activity Beats Market Expectations

  • "Need a red, five-minute candle subsequent to the release to favor a short EUR/USD position."
  • "If market reaction favors a bullish dollar trade, short EUR/USD with two separate position."
  • "Set stop at the near-by swing high/reasonable distance from entry; look for at least 1:1 risk-to-reward."
  • "Move stop to entry on remaining position once initial target is hit; set reasonable limit."

Bearish USD Trade: ISM Non-Manufacturing Survey Disappoints

  • "Need a green, five-minute candle to encourage a long EUR/USD position."
  • "Implement same strategy as the bullish dollar trade, just in reverse."

Weekly EUR/USD Outlook: 2017, March 05 - March 12 (based on the article)

EUR/USD struggled but eventually chose the lower end of the range, due to USD strength. Will it totally break down or drift back up? The big event of the week is undoubtedly the ECB decision, which also consists of new forecasts.


  1. Retail PMI: Monday, 9:10.
  2. Sentix Investor Confidence: Monday, 9:30.
  3. German Factory Orders: Tuesday, 7:00. The volatile indicator is not likely to repeat the big bounce.
  4. GDP (revised): Tuesday, 10:00.
  5. German Industrial Production: Wednesday, 7:00.
  6. French Trade Balance: Wednesday, 7:45.
  7. Rate decision: Thursday: decision at 12:45, press conference at 13:30. Draghi would prefer to keep the euro low and not to talk about tapering or ending QE. The ECB currently buys 80 billion euros per month, but the amount will be reduced to 60 billion from April and set to run until the end of the year. See the full ECB preview: acknowledging reality or playing it down?
  8. German Trade Balance: Friday, 7:00.
  9. French Industrial Production: Friday, 7:45.
