Although the EURUSD pair is all set to register the biggest monthly gain since September 2010, a bearish RSI divergence on the Daily chart challenges the quote’s further upside as traders await Eurozone inflation and a speech from Fed Chair Jerome Powell. The price-negative signal could be known when the quote makes higher highs but the oscillator, RSI (14) in this case, prints lower tops. Also raising doubts about the pair’s further upside is its repeated failures to stay successfully beyond the 200-DMA, currently around 1.0380. It’s worth noting, however, that a fresh high of the monthly, close to 1.0500 at the latest, could reject the bearish divergence in case the RSI ticks up beyond the latest peak surrounding 60.40. Even so, the highs marked during late June near 1.0615 will precede the June month’s top of 1.0773 to test the bulls before allowing them to challenge May’s peak of 1.0786.
Meanwhile, the previous weekly low close to 1.0220 seems to lure the short-term sellers of the EURUSD pair. Following that, September’s high near 1.0195 could act as the last defense of the buyers before directing the prices towards October’s top of 1.0088. In a case where the quote remains bearish past 1.0088, the parity level will precede the early September swing low around 0.9865 to please the bears.
Overall, EURUSD bulls are running out of steam as they brace for the key data/events.
