EURUSD Daily Chart by TradingView
 

What can we expect from EURUSD for the new week and what happened on Friday?

EURUSD on Friday rose 0.07% to 1.05709. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising in oversold zone. For the week ending 2023-09-29, the pair dropped -0.68% or -72.3 pips lower.

Looking ahead on Monday, EURUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 1.04878.

For the new week, our technical outlook looks bearish, immediate support level is at 1.04873 (WS1) with break below could see further selling pressure towards 1.04037 (WS2). For potential buyers, as the current momentum is bearish, we prefer to look at firm break of the week high of 1.06555 as an important indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below week low of 1.04878 would indicate selling pressure.

End of September, EURUSD is down by -2.5% or -270.6 pips lower.
