EURUSD Technical Analysis – We got stuck in a consolidation


The USD has been
generally under pressure since the benign US CPI report last week as the
hawkish expectations subsided and the market switched its focus from inflation
back to growth. This triggered a positive risk sentiment which is generally
negative for the greenback and benefited the other major currencies.

The EUR, on the
other hand, has been gaining ground mostly because of the US Dollar softness amid
positive risk sentiment. One thing to watch will be the Eurozone wage growth data
tomorrow as that might shape market’s expectations for rate cuts beyond June.

EURUSD Technical
Analysis – Daily Timeframe

On the daily
chart, we can see that EURUSD rallied into the key 1.09 resistance
following the US CPI release and got stuck in a consolidation ever since. The
market is waiting for a catalyst to push the price in either direction, but for
now the bias remains bullish. A break above the 1.09 handle should see the
buyers taking the pair into the 1.10 handle next.

Technical Analysis – 4 hour Timeframe

On the 4 hour
chart, we can see that we have a good support around the 1.0830 level where we
can find the confluence
of the trendline
and the 38.2% Fibonacci
level. This is where we can expect the buyers to step in with a
defined risk below the trendline to position for a break above the resistance
with a good risk to reward setup.

The sellers, on the other hand, will want to
see the price breaking lower to invalidate the bullish setup and position for a
drop into the 1.0727 support.

Technical Analysis – 1 hour Timeframe

On the 1 hour
chart, we can see more clearly the rangebound price action since the US CPI
rally. We have the support zone around the 1.0830 level and the resistance zone
around the 1.09 level. A breakout on either side should see the momentum
increasing in the direction of the breakout.

It’s unlikely that
we will get a breakout today though as the average
daily range
limits are basically right at the support and resistance levels
and we don’t have major economic releases that could trigger a strong move.


Today we have the FOMC Minutes late in the day although it’s
unlikely to be market moving. Tomorrow, we will get the Eurozone negotiated wage
growth for Q1, the Eurozone and US PMIs, and the latest US Jobless Claims
