EUR/USD downtrend continues
EUR/USD has been selling off in a consistent manner since topping off last week, with a break below $1.0719 in particular leading to a more bearish outlook. That said, this pullback is seen within a wider context of higher highs and higher lows on the daily timeframe.
As such, look out for this current sell-off to be a potential retracement of the rally from $1.0494, with the Fibonacci support levels coming into view. We have seen the 61.8% come into play already, marking the low of last week. An hourly close below that level points towards another decent leg lower, with $1.0591 (76.4%) a potential destination. Conversely, an hourly close above $1.0702 could signal that the 61.8% is the ‘be all and end all’ for this sell-off.
