EUR/USD resting up at the 2013 lows

FXStreet (Barcelona) - EUR/USD is trading at 1.2733, up 0.27% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.2766 and low at 1.2685.

EUR/USD has been up to test the territory where the pair has continued to fail in the month of October on a short lived spike through the 2013 lows at 1.2744, the area where the pair now oscillates. The key area if the bulls persist there after will be where the downtrend exists with a culmination of weekly R1 and the 455 DMA at 1.2800. There would need to be a significant catalyst to get there which might come from a very dovish FOMC and Yellen playing down hope of a rate hike while there is little chance that the FOMC will come with a very hawkish tone.

EUR/USD noteworthy levels

Current price is 1.2733, with resistance ahead at 1.2755 (Daily Classic R2), 1.2766 (Daily High), 1.2785 (Daily Classic R3), 1.2803 (Weekly Classic
R1) and 1.2838 (Monthly High). Next support to the downside can be found at 1.2728 (Daily 20 SMA), 1.2726 (Daily Classic R1), 1.2724 (Hourly 20 EMA), 1.2724 (Yesterday's High) and 1.2723 (Hourly 200 SMA).
