EUR/USD Technical Analysis: flirting with 1.14, 4H 200MA is offering support

The EUR/USD pair is on the defensive at 1.14, although the downside is being capped by the 4-hour 200-candle MA of 1.1390.

4-hour chart

The lower highs and lower lows, as seen in the above chart, indicate that the path of least resistance is to the downside. The relative strength index (RSI) is also biased bearish below 50.00.

Even so, the 200-candle simple moving average (SMA) support is proving a tough nut to crack. Hence, that MA of 1.1390 is the now the level to beat for the bears.

Acceptance under that would open up downside toward 1.1306 (Jan. 3 low). On the higher side, a move above the 10-day MA of 1.1450 would weaken the bearish pressure.
