Technical Analysis: EURUSD bears to keep reins during final days of 2021
EURUSD remains within a small trading range ever since it refreshed the yearly low to 1.1186. That said, the monthly support line and gradually improving RSI challenge the bearish bias. However, the bulls have multiple hurdles to cross before convincing markets during thin volume and holiday season, which in turn makes it harder for buyers. Also adding to the seller’s support are the bearish MACD signals.
The quote’s latest moves have been compressed by the 20-day smoothed average near 1.1365, a break of which could escalate recovery moves towards 1.1470 comprising a descending trend line from early September. Even if the pair rises beyond 1.1470, October’s low surrounding 1.1530 will act as an additional upside filter.
Meanwhile, pullback moves may initially aim for the stated one-month-old support line near 1.1235 before challenging the yearly low of 1.1186. Following that, March 2020 swing high close to 1.1150 and 61.8% Fibonacci Expansion (FE) of November month’s moves, around 1.1120, will be in focus.
