EUR/USD Turns Lower on Lackluster NFP Data (based on the article)
"The EUR/USD continues to trade lower despite the release of lackluster
NFP figures. NFP release was expected at +175k, and was released
at +161k an actual. The big surprise on the day was a revision of
September’s employment figures to 191k. This revision was up from the
reported 156K, causing US Dollar based pairs to rally."
"Technically, the EUR/USD may be seen below being rejected from a 50%
Fibonacci retracement value at 1.1108. This line has been acting as
resistance now for three consecutive sessions, and is measured by taking
the distance between the August 18th high at 1.1366 and the current
October low of 1.0850. If prices continue to trade below this value,
traders may see this rejection as the resumption of an ongoing 4th
quarter downtrend. However if prices can break above this point, it may
solidify a broader EUR/USD retracement."
