EURUSD Chart by TradingView

What can we expect from EURUSD today?

EURUSD on Thursday dropped -0.73% to 1.08435. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising.

Updated daily direction for EURUSD looks bearish as the pair posted lower in Thursday trading session.

Looking ahead for the day, immediate support level is at 1.08057 (S1) with break below could see further selling pressure towards 1.0768 (S2). To the upside, with the current momentum bearish, we prefer to look at breakout of the recent daily high of 1.09394 as a potential indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below 1.08348 would indicate selling pressure.

For the week to-date, take note that EURUSD is mixed as compared to prior week.

EURUSD ended month of August trading session down by -1.39% or -153.3 pips lower.
