Verbal QE has been weighing on Euro

The EURUSD has reached a support area that has been psychologically important in the past. The level acted as a resistance in 1998 and in 2003 and in 2005 the level turned a downtrend in EURUSD to an up move that lasted for more than two years. This could mean that chances for immediate and extensive moves lower are now limited. The last time EURUSD reached a historical weekly pivot it moved sideways for three weeks before breaking lower. The trend is still down and there is no reason in the charts to turn bullish with Euro. In addition, the economic problems in the euro area together with the verbal QE from Mr. Draghi are likely to drag the EURUSD even lower.

EURUSD, Monthly

The EURUSD is at a support area that has been psychologically important in the past. The level acted as a resistance in 1998 and in 2003. In 2005 the level turned a downtrend in EURUSD to an up move that lasted for more than two years. The pair has created lower highs since 2007 and has now moved below an important support area that was able to turn the market higher in three separate occasions.

EURUSD, W

EURUSD, Weekly

The weekly trend is down but is has extended outside the regression channel. This means that the trend is now more vulnerable for retracements. The 1.1795 level that has provided support is a weekly pivot high from November 2005. With Stochastics and RSI firmly oversold and price at a historical weekly support extensive and immediate downside could be limited.

EURUSD, D

EURUSD, Daily

The daily short term daily trend is down with price inside the regression channel. Price has retraced back to a daily low from 5th January at 1.1868. The oscillators are oversold. The last time Euro was able to move against the prevailing trend it lasted for two days, if the current resistance holds now it is likely that the Euro will at least test the recent lows but there is a likelihood that the problems in the euro area together with the verbal QE from Mr. Draghi will drag the EURUSD even lower.

The price has moved out from the descending regression channel to resistance that coincides with the 20 period Bollinger Bands. The resistance is created by pivotal low at 1.1868. Now that price has moved to the level momentum is drying up with Stochastics being ready roll over and 4h bar ranges becoming very narrow. We have a daily resistance at 1.1868, but a weekly support at around 1.1795 is still relatively fairly close. Oscillators are overbought as price moves sideways at the upper Bollinger Bands. There is also a cluster of Fibonacci levels that coincide with the current resistance level and another between 1.1934 and 1.1949. I have left the levels off to increase the readability.

A minor uptrend that has reached the 1.1868 and shows signs of weakening. Now the price is about to create a shooting star at the resistance which indicates price will move lower from here.

Conclusion:

The EURUSD has reached a support area that has been psychologically important in the past. The level acted as a resistance in 1998 and in 2003 and in 2005 the level turned a downtrend in EURUSD to an up move that lasted for more than two years. This could mean that chances for immediate and extensive moves lower are now limited. The last time EURUSD reached a historical weekly pivot it moved sideways for three weeks before breaking lower. The trend is still down and there is no reason in the charts to turn bullish with Euro. In addition, the economic problems in the euro area together with the verbal QE from Mr. Draghi are likely to drag the EURUSD even lower. In the intraday chart (240 min) price has moved out from the descending regression channel to a resistance that coincides with the 20 period Bollinger Bands. The resistance is created by pivotal low at 1.1868. Momentum is drying up with Stochastics being ready roll over and 4h bar ranges becoming very narrow. In a 60 min time frame we can see that as the minor uptrend has reached the resistance it shows signs of weakening (a lower high). In the process price also created a shooting star candle at the resistance. This indicates that price will move lower from here. Traders looking to short against the 1.1868 resistance should monitor the levels around 1.1795 for Momentum Reversal Signals to exit short trades as the weekly support possibly provides temporary support to the market.
