EUR/USD Technical Analysis

The Euro gained bearish momentum after it broke the 1.0750 support against the US Dollar. EUR/USD traded below the 1.0650 support to enter a bearish zone.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the pair tumbled below the 1.0600 level. It even settled below 1.0600, the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours), and the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours).

Finally, there was a spike below the 1.0500 level and the pair traded to a new multi-month low at 1.0471. It is now correcting losses above the 1.0500 level. There was a move above a steep bearish trend line at 1.0525 on the same chart.

An immediate resistance is near the 1.0650 level. It is near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the 1.0936 swing high to 1.0471 low.

The next major resistance is seen near the 1.0700 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the 1.0936 swing high to 1.0471 low, above which the pair could start a steady increase.

If not, there is a risk of more losses below 1.0500. The next major support is near the 1.0475 level. Any more losses may perhaps open the doors for a move towards the 1.0420 support zone.

Looking at GBP/USD, the pair gained bearish momentum below the 1.2750 support and even spiked below 1.2500.
