EURUSD bounces off 1.0810 support confluence ahead of key PMIs

EURUSD bounces off 1.0810 support confluence ahead of key PMIs

EURUSD portrays a corrective bounce from the lowest level in a week, snapping a three-day losing streak, as traders await the first readings of the Eurozone and the US PMIs for May early Thursday. In doing so, the Euro pair also takes a U-turn from a convergence of the 100-SMA and previous resistance line stretched from late December 2023, close to 1.0810. The recovery also takes clues from the upbeat RSI (14) line and the bullish MACD signals, allowing buyers to remain hopeful. With this, the quote is likely to extend the latest rebound toward the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the December 2023 to April 2024 downturn, near 1.0870. However, a 4.5-month-old descending resistance line surrounding 1.0890 and the 61.8% Fibonacci ratio near 1.0940 could test the pair’s further upside. It’s worth noting that the highs marked in March and mid-January, respectively near 1.0980 and 1.1000, act as the final defense of the bears.

Alternatively, the EURUSD bears need validation from the EU/US PMIs, the 1.0810 support confluence, and the 1.0800 threshold to keep the reins. Following that, the Euro pair’s gradual decline toward the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of 1.0730 and then to February’s bottom of around 1.0695 can’t be ruled out. In a case where the sellers dominate past 1.0695, the prices become vulnerable to slump toward the yearly low marked in April around 1.0600.

To sum up, EURUSD is likely to witness recovery but the upside move hinges on a successful break of 1.0890 and the scheduled data points.
