EUR/USD’s rebound from 1.0494 accelerated higher last week. The development dampened our bearish view of down trend resuming. Instead, it suggest that corrective rise from 1.0339 is still in progress. And further rise would be seen through 1.0828 resistance in near term.
Initial bias in EUD/USD stays on the upside this week for 1.0828 resistance and above. However, since rise from 1.0339 is seen as a corrective move. We’d upside to be limited by 100% projection of 1.0339 to 1.0828 from 1.0494 at 1.0983 to bring larger down trend resumption eventually. On the downside, break of 1.0639 minor support will turn bias back to the downside for 1.0494 support.
In the bigger picture, as long as 1.1298 key resistance holds, whole down trend from 1.6039 (2008 high) is still expected to continue. Break of 1.0339 low will send EUR/USD through parity to 61.8% projection of 1.3993 to 1.0461 from 1.1298 at 0.9115.
In the long term picture, the down trend from 1.6039 (2008 high) is still in progress and there is no clear sign of completion. We’d expect more downside towards 0.8223 (2000 low) as long as 1.1298 resistance holds. However, firm break of 1.1298 should now confirm long term reversal.
