FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - EUR/USD is currently trading at 1.2876, off session lows at 1.2870, capped below late NY session highs at 1.2894, where stop losses are placed now. “There are some very tight trailing stops now above 1.2895 in the EUR/USD (mainly from leveraged types) which will probably be targeted in the next few hours,” noted FXWW founder Sean Lee.

According to Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at Fxstreet.com: “the hourly chart shows price hovering below the 1.2880 mark, with 20 SMA heading lower currently around 1.2890, while indicators hold below their midlines, giving no signs later bounce may extend higher,” the analyst says, adding: “In the 4 hours chart, technical readings maintain a strong bearish momentum, supporting the shorter term view, with market now eyeing 1.2744, this year low,” she suggests.

Valeria sees support levels at: 1.2840, 1.2790 and 1.2745, while resistance levels at: 1.2885, 1.2920 and 1.2970.
