How could affect EUR/USD?
Technically, “Friday's downfall confirmed a near-term bearish breakthrough a symmetrical triangular formation and thus, increases prospects for an extension of the bearish momentum towards challenging yearly lows, around the 1.1215 region. A follow-through selling pressure has the potential to continue dragging the pair, even below the 1.1200 handle, towards testing its next support near the 1.1160 region. On the flip side, any attempted recovery might now confront some fresh supply near the ascending trend-line support break-point, now turned resistance, currently around the 1.1325 region, above which a bout of short-covering could lift the pair further towards the 1.1365-70 strong horizontal resistance,” Haresh Menghani, Analyst at FXStreet explains.
