EUR/USD: Northbound Freight Train - Forex News by FX Leaders

EUR/USD: Northbound Freight Train

There seems to be no end to the rally in the EUR/USD. As my colleague Skerdian outlined a bit earlier on in the session, technical resistance levels do not seem to matter. No doubt about it, this is a market driven by fundamentals and the perceived weakness of the USD.

Until we see confirmation that sellers are entering the market in force, the long-term prognosis for the EUR/USD remains bullish.

As I have talked about ad nauseam, the coming FOMC meeting in September will be crucial to this market. In my opinion, the faltering USD furthers the agenda of a tightening monetary policy and ensures a considerable interest rate hike by the FED.

Here are a few technical levels to be aware of:

  • Psychological level of 1.2000

  • 38% retracement of 3 session rally at 1.1956

  • The previous session’s low. If pricing goes below that level, we will be looking at a period of consolidation.

Outlook: As of this writing, the EUR/USD is off of the highs, trading in the neighborhood of 1.2020. Moving forward, I expect consolidation around 1.2000 and a test of the rally's 38% retracement at 1.1956 during the coming sessions.

However, this is a market driven by fundamentals. Seemingly anything is possible. Stay tuned to FX Leaders for analysis and trade ideas facing the most opportune markets and instruments.
