Two Moving Averages and A Trendline for the Euro. Monthly Chart Analysis
Skerdian Meta • 1 min read
We have mentioned many times that the US Dollar has been in a constant decline throughout last year. As a result, EUR/USD has climbed more than 20 cents during this time without much of a retrace. The only decent pullback happened in Autumn when this pair retraced 500 pips lower.
The buyers pushed above 1.25 last week, but the sellers returned and this pair bumped off that level. Now we are at 1.2370s. I don?t think that we will break the lows at 1.0350, but there?s a good chance that we will see a reversal from here.
Three technical indicators are pointing down
As you can see above, a trendline has formed, connecting the highs from back in 2008 before the global financial crisis. That moving average comes at 1.2590. That?s as good as 1.2530, which was the high last Thursday. Don?t expect the technical indicators to fall exactly to the pip in these large timeframes, such as the monthly chart that we are analyzing.
Besides the trendline, we have two moving averages up here. The 100 SMA (red) comes at 1.2570, while the 200 SMA (purple) comes at 1.2430. We didn?t reach the 100 SMA and it looks like we might be closing below the 200 SMA.
The monthly candlestick opened at 1.20 on New Year?s day. We are not too far from there now. In two days anything might happen, we might even close below 1.20. The FED meeting is on Wednesday evening on the 31st of January, so we might really close below 1.20. If that happened, it would be a massive bearish signal. But first, let?s see what the FED has to say.
