August 19, 2020 : EUR/USD Intraday technical analysis and trade recommendations.
On March 20, the EURUSD pair has expressed remarkable bullish recovery around the established bottom around 1.0650.
Shortly after, a sideway consolidation range was established in the price range extending between 1.0770 – 1.1000.
On May 14, evident signs of Bullish rejection as well as a recent ascending bottom have been manifested around the price zone of (1.0815 – 1.0775), which enhances the bullish side of the market in the short-term.
Bullish breakout above 1.1000 has enhanced further bullish advancement towards 1.1150 then 1.1380 where another sideway consolidation range was established.
Hence, Bearish persistence below 1.1150 (consolidation range lower limit) was needed to enhance further bearish decline. However, the EURUSD pair has failed to maintain enough bearish momentum to do so.
Instead, the current bullish breakout above 1.1380-1.1400 has lead to a quick bullish spike directly towards 1.1600 (Fibonacci Expansion 78.6% level) which failed to offer sufficient bearish pressure.
That’s why, further bullish advancement pursued towards 1.1730 (Fibonacci Expansion 100% level) which failed to offer sufficient bearish rejection for a few days until Today.
Bullish persistence above 1.1730 will probably favor further bullish advancement towards 1.2075 (161% Fibo Expansion Level) in the intermediate-term.
On the other hand, bearish re-closure below 1.1730 indicates lack of bullish momentum and enhances further bearish decline initially towards 1.1600.
Trade recommendations :
Conservative traders should wait for the current bullish movement to pause and get back below 1.1730 as an indicator for lack of bearish momentum for a valid SELL Entry.T/P levels to be located around 1.1600 and 1.1500 while S/L to be placed above 1.1800 to minimize the associated risk.
