Is the Climb in EUR/USD Over After the Rejection at the 200 SMA?

The rate of EUR to USD has climbed more than 2 cents higher since mid-April, but the climb in EUR/USD might have reached its limits. The upside picked up momentum on Friday, particularly after the release of the US non-farm payrolls (NFP) report which came in weaker than expected, however, the 200 SMA rejected EUR/USD and the price fell around 50-60 pips lower.

EUR/USD Chart H4 – Stochastic is Overbought

EUR/USD hit a low of 1.06 approximately three weeks ago, then reversed and has been on an upward trajectory since. It surpassed the 1.07 barrier, signaling potential positive momentum. However, frequent rejection at the 1.0750 level indicates strong resistance in that area. Last week, the upward movement intensified, and on Friday, EUR/USD climbed above 1.08 in response to disappointing NFP news. However, buyers were unable to breach the 200 SMA (purple), and after briefly surpassing it, the price reversed downward, indicating a rejection.
