EUR/USD Technical Outlook

The Euro’s rally fueled by dollar selling in the broader forex market saw EUR/USD trim back into the 1.1000 zone before settling back into Tuesday’s close, but still up three tenths of a percent on the day .

The EUR/USD pair easily surpassed the 200-day SMA in mid-November, near the 1.0800 area, and the Euro’s continued bullish trend is driving the pair higher while the dollar falters.

The pair might have risen too much, too fast, with the 50-day SMA still trading well below prices and in bearish territory, and the moving average turning higher from north of 1.0650.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is showing warning signs that EUR/USD may have gone too far, almost testing the overbought limit line, and could see a prolonged pullback if the bears are able to capitalize on any taking profits.
