EURUSD Technical Analysis –
Daily Timeframe

On the
daily chart, we can see that EURUSD recently broke out of the downward trendline but sold
off soon after leaving behind a fakeout. This is generally a reversal pattern,

On the 4 hour chart, we can see that we have now a

below the support and target the 1.1033 level.

main highlights. The market pricing is unlikely to change unless the data comes
in really hot in which case, we should see the US Dollar strengthening. On the
other hand, weaker readings might just bring forward rate cuts expectations and
weigh on the greenback in the short term.
