EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Ascending trend-line support break paves the way for a retest of yearly lows, around 1.1215 region

   •  Having failed to move back above 100-hour SMA, the pair met with some aggressive supply and tumbled to sub-1.1300 level, or fresh monthly lows, on dismal Euro-zone PMI prints.

   •  The steep intraday decline dragged technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart into oversold territory and turned out to be the only factor limiting further downside, at least for the time being.
