EUR/USD Technical Analysis: Contracting triangle has been breached to the downside

  • The EUR/USD pair closed at 1.1303, confirming a symmetrical triangle breakdown.
  • The bearish pattern indicates that the sell-off from the September high of 1.1815 has resumed and could yield a drop to the recent low of 1.1215. A close below that level would open up downside toward the psychological support of 1.10.
  • The triangle breakdown is backed by a bearish reading on the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) and the downward sloping 5- and 10-day exponential moving averages.
  • The 55-day EMA is the level to beat for the bulls, as the EMA caught highs on a closing basis in October, November and earlier this month.
