Talking Points

  • EUR/USD fails at key moving average
  • Spot approaching critical pivot zone

The failure last week in EUR/USD to materially break below the 1.0820 May low prompted a fairly aggressive short covering rally back towards the middle of the three month range and the 50-day moving average. However, the exchange rate’s failure to close above the widely watched moving average earlier this week suggests the recovery was just a minor stutter step and keeps the euro in a clear negative technical position on the daily chart. The 1.0800 area remains a critical pivot zone as a close below there should confirm a resumption of the broader downtrend and set into motion a more important decline in the weeks ahead. Immediate resistance is seen around the 20-day moving average at 1.0980, but only traction over 1.1100 meaningfully improves the negative near-term technical outlook.
