EUR / USD Price Forecast: Technical Outlook
The EUR / USD daily chart shows that an inverse head and shoulders pattern formed around the 2021 lows, indicating that the EUR / USD is under some buying pressure. The measured target of the inverse head and shoulders pattern is 1.1750, close to the 50% Fibonacci retracement, which could resume the long-term bearish move towards a retest of the 2021 lows.
To challenge the US dollar bulls, euro buyers will need a daily close above 1.1800, close to the 100-day moving average (DMA). In that result, the September 14 high at 1.1846 would be the first resistance level, followed by 1.1900.
On the other hand, to resume the downtrend, the USD bulls will need to push the EUR / USD below the 1.1600 threshold. If the EUR / USD sellers exert enough pressure to drive a daily close below 1.1600, a challenge from the 2021 lows around 1.1524 is up for grabs.
The Relative Strength Index (RSI), a momentum indicator, is at 48, trending slightly upward, indicating that buying pressure is building on the EUR. However, caution is warranted as the RSI remains below the 50 midline.
