EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro US Dollar

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the pair declined heavily below the 1.1080 and 1.1050 support levels. Moreover, there was a close below the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours) and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours).

More importantly, the pair traded below the 1.1073 swing low, plus the 1.236 Fib extension level of the upward move from the 1.1073 low to 1.1176 high.

It opened the doors for more losses below 1.1040. An immediate support is near the 1.1000 area or the 1.618 Fib extension level of the upward move from the 1.1073 low to 1.1176 high.

Any further losses may perhaps push EUR/USD towards the 1.0980 support area. On the upside, there are many hurdles on the upside near the 1.1050 and 1.1060 levels, above which the pair could revisit 1.1100.

Similarly, there were bearish moves in GBP/USD below the 1.2850 and 1.2800 support levels. Conversely, USD/JPY remains in an uptrend above 108.00.
