EURUSD prepares for the sixth consecutive weekly fall as ECB and Federal Reserve bosses prepare for the annual showdown at the Jackson Hole Symposium. That said, the Euro pair remains pressured within a one-month-old descending trend channel amid downbeat RSI and MACD conditions, which in turn suggest less downside room and highlights the stated channel’s bottom line of around 1.0785 as the key support. In a case where the sellers dominate past 1.0790, the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of May-July upside, near 1.0770, will act as the final defense of the buyers, a break of which will direct the prices toward May’s bottom of 1.0635.
On the contrary, a fortnight-long falling resistance line, close to 1.0880 at the latest, guards immediate EURUSD recovery within the bearish channel formation. Following that, the mentioned channel’s top line of near 1.0980 and the 200-SMA surrounding 1.1015-20 could test the Euro buyers before giving them a charge. In that case, the monthly high of 1.1065 and the late July peak of 1.1150 may check the upside moves ahead of directing the quote to the yearly top of 1.1275.
Overall, EURUSD bears appear running out of steam but the buyers need strong reasons to retake control, which in turn highlights the central bankers’ speeches at the key event for the pair traders to watch.
