EURUSD Technical Analysis – Next target 1.10?


Yesterday, the USD
weakened across the board following a benign US
report where the data came in line with expectations. The market firmed
up the rate cuts expectations with September and December now fully priced in. We
saw a general risk-on sentiment as a result and barring negative surprises in

bullish case and take back control.

around the 1.0820 level where they will find the confluence
of the trendline
and the 61.8% Fibonacci

If the positive
sentiment were to continue though and the price were to break above the 1.09
handle before pulling back to the support
zone, the buyers will likely pile in anyway to target an extension into the
1.10 handle.

stage as the market will want to see if the last week’s numbers were the start
of a trend or just a blip.
