EUR / USD Price Forecast: Technical Outlook

The EUR / USD 4-hour chart shows that the pair has a bearish bias. While the 50 SMA (SMA) is below price, the 100 and 200 SMA reside above, confirming the above. The pair has been in the range between the 50-100 SMA at 1.1280-1.1315, with no clear direction, and as the American session ends, it appears that the EUR / USD would remain stuck in it.

With a breakout above the 100 SMA, the first trading zone would be the November 30 high at 1.1382. A breakout of the latter would open the way for a further rise, with 1.1400 as the next resistance, followed by the confluence of the 200 SMA and the November 15 high around the 1.1450-70 range.

On the other hand, a break below the 50 SMA would expose 1.1200, followed by the November 24 annual low at 1.1186.
