EUR/USD’s break of 1.1938 minor resistance indicates short term bottoming at 1.1822, on bullish convergence condition in 4 hour MACD. Intraday bias is back on the upside for further recovery to 4 hour 55 EMA (now at 1.1971) and above. Though, we’d expect strong resistance form 38.2% retracement of 1.2413 to 1.1822 at 1.2048 to limit upside and bring another fall. On the downside, below 1.1822 will resume the whole decline from 1.255 and target 1.1708 medium term fibonacci level next.
In the bigger picture, current decline and firm break of 1.2154 support confirms rejection by 38.2% retracement of 1.6039 (2008 high) to 1.0339 (2017 low) at 1.2516. A medium term top should be in place at 1.2555 and deeper decline would be seen back to 38.2% retracement of 1.0339 to 1.2555 at 1.1708 first. With current downside acceleration, there is prospect of hitting 61.8% retracement at 1.1186 before completing the decline. But still, we’ll need to look at the structure before deciding if it’s a corrective or impulsive move.
