EURUSD Technical Analysis – The positive sentiment is giving the pair a boost


The USD last week saw a
quick dip across the board following the soft US CPI report as the market priced back in two rate
cuts by the end of the year. The moves were reversed soon after though as we
got a bit more hawkish than expected FOMC decision where the dot plot showed that the Fed expected just one cut for
this year despite the soft US CPI report.

Later on, Fed Chair Powell backpedalled on the projections making them a
bit less worrying as the central bank remains very data dependent. The US
Dollar eventually got supported in the last part of the last week as the risk
sentiment turned more cautious.

The EUR, on the other hand,
got hit hard by the European elections as the political uncertainty
weighed on the sentiment and led to some increase in bonds risk premia and
selloff in European stocks.

The risk sentiment has been
gradually improving this week although we are not out of the woods yet. The Flash
PMIs on Friday will likely be important catalysts in this regard.

EURUSD Technical
Analysis – Daily Timeframe

On the daily chart, we can
see that EURUSD has been pulling back this week after breaking through the key 1.0727

EURUSD Technical
Analysis – 4 hour Timeframe

On the 4 hour chart, we can
see that we have a good resistance around the 1.0760 level where we can find
the confluence
of the trendline
and the 50% Fibonacci retracement.

This is where we can expect
the sellers to step in with a defined risk above the trendline to position for
a drop into the 1.06 handle with a better risk to reward setup. The buyers, on
the other hand, will want to see the price breaking higher to increase the
bullish bets into the 1.09 handle.

EURUSD Technical
Analysis – 1 hour Timeframe

On the 1 hour chart, we can
see that the price has been printing higher highs and higher lows on this
timeframe as the bullish momentum started to pick up amid improving sentiment. The
sellers will want to see the price falling below the swing low at 1.0710 to regain
control and increase the bearish bets into new lows. The red lines define the average daily range for today.
